Mom is a finalist!



Finally, something cool to blog about.


My mom has been named a finalist (One of 10 overall, one of five in her catergory) for the Sutter Home Build A Better Burger Contest. YEAH MOM!!!


She is a finalist in the "alternative burger" catagory, which means at least 75% of the burger must contain a meat other than beef. The grand prize is $10,000 so those are pretty good odds. She has already won the trip to Napa for 2 nights so she can compete in the cook-off, plus I think all the runners up win $500. Not bad.


The cook-off is Oct 1st- not much time to practice. I see alot of pork burgers in my dad's immediate future.


WAY TO GO MOM!!! bouncesmile.gif

Thank you all for the well wishes, I'll keep my fingers crossed too! I am so excited for her. This is her first trip to Napa, which happens to be where Patrick and I honeymooned, and she is almost as excited to see the wine country as she is to compete in the contest. ALMOST. I will let you know next month how she does- in the meantime, I hope she gets our good vibes!
