Every year the Bernards and Harrisons have a cook-off on Memorial Day. This year’s theme was poultry and we were invited! Yay! Andy asked if I wanted to enter and bring something, but I knew with the busy week I really couldn’t. So I said I’d bring a side dish and decided to do a strawberry spinach salad about an hour and a half before going. I quickly threw one together, made some lemonade in the cooler and headed out the door.
There were TONS of different poultry dishes to choose from and Andy’s smoked turkey was especially delicious, both plain and on the flat bread pizza (which by the way, was the best dish there)!

But after all the ballots were cast, there was one entry that was mentioned almost every time: my strawberry spinach salad! LOL So I was graciously declared the unofficial winner and even given the prize: a fully-equipped, self-contained BBQ apron! Andy also gave me the Betty Crocker Cooky Book that my mom had when I was a kid! I can’t wait to start making cookies out of it!
It was a lot of fun, even if I hadn’t won! I wonder what I’ll bring next year??? :o)
