Well, I DID get all my baking done. I can hardly believe it. And so far, everything has been declared as good by my co-workers! :) Since Saturday, I have made 3 dozen snickerdoodles, 4 dozen oatmeal raisin cookies, one loaf of banana bread, one dozen blueberry muffins and I just pulled the pound cake out of the oven! That's five entries...shew! :)
So over the past four days I've used...
10 1/4 cups flour
2 tablespoons baking powder, plus 2 teaspoons
6 1/4 cup sugar, plus 2 tablespoons
1 stick butter
5 sticks margarine
1/4 cup Crisco
1 3/4 cup milk, plus 5 tablespoons
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 3/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/8 + 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup oil
I don't know about you...but that's a lot of flour, sugar & eggs!!!

These are my blueberry muffins...
Yes...you will notice that one is missing! :) I had to test them! I'm not real happy with how they turned out...they aren't pretty and that is part of the judging criteria. I'm still turning them in. I only have to send 4 so I'll pick the best 4!
As far as my pound cake...I'm a little bummed at the moment...I was so careful, but the entire inside stuck to the tube. Egads! I only have to send 1/2...but the whole thing stuck. Hmmm...arrrrggghhh! Of course, I don't have time to try again!
And what will I get for my efforts?
For muffins & banana bread - $10 for 1st place, $8 for 2nd, $6 for 3rd
Pound cake - $14 for 1st place, $12 for 2nd, $10 for 3rd
Cookes - $10 for 1st place, $8 for 2nd, $6 for 3rd
And if you get "Best in Show", you get an additional $10!
Well...I'm off. I have to get up super early to finish packaging my entries. We will see on Friday if I won anything! :)
