i've toyed with the idea of competing many times over the years that i've participated here, but there aren't that many competitions here in California, and it's just never w*rked out for me to do so.
but then again, i cook because i enjoy it, and i just put stuff together to see how it comes out: we have friends over or i cook for HRH to take into w*rk, and if everyone goes head down into their plate and it's real quiet for 5 or 10 minutes until they catch their breath and start talking about how good it tastes, i've got a Grand Champion award right there, without all the drama.
the more i read here about all the bother at contests, the less it sounds like fun and the less interested i am in trying my hand at one. i really think i'll just stick to doing something i love for the sheer enjoyment of it, and leave it at that.
of course, if there is a team competing Southern/Central California that needs a hand, lemme know: maybe the actual event will be the bug bite i need to change my mind.
until then, i cherish all that i have learned here, and the opportunities i have had to share what tidbit's i've garnered in my experiments. my best to all, and my thanks to Ray for my home away from home here on the net.
