The Doctor is IN

Keen Observations on Life … Whether You Need Them or Not

The State Fair Premium Books Are In!


Ohmigod, I feel like Navin Johnson when the phone books arrived.

I got my postcard in the mail today: the 2012 Premium Books are in! The 2012 Premium Books are in! I can feel it … this will be MY year for the blue ribbon. Curse those little blue haired ladies and their tight-knit fight club of hallowed blue ribbon winners. It’s time for a 30-something to win!

Coincidentally, my husband announced that he was ready for the test cakes to begin. Guess I need to stock up on pound cake ingredients!

  1. This is YOUR year Dolly!! You are going to break the blue-haired ladies’ code and pick up that well-deserved Blue Ribbon. (Let me know when the test cakes are coming out of the oven…I’m just saying… may be worth the 6 hour drive.)

  2. Make sure your husband keeps to those trails once a week, tastings should be a reward for his mileage.

  3. Maybe you could make a cake a week between now and State Fair time in October. You wouldn’t have to change your recipe….just make a cake a week 🙂
