So in a Life in the Dirt post I mentioned entering my first recipe contest/bake off, and that this recipe was part of my MUM recipes.  Well tonight was the night and I went in confident in my creation.  I was more confident after I saw and heard about judges wanting seconds.  So when the moment of truth arrived I was hopefully...only to be beaten out by a sweet senior lady and some chicken recipe.  Now, I am not bitter about losing to a sweet older lady, who is no doubt a pillar of my small community (even though I had no idea who she was or where she came from).  I am relieved to have my first contest over, no matter the outcome.  I am disappointed because I did think my recipe rocked!  My consolation is that the Mayor asked if he could take a plate home, and of course I obliged because who says 'no' to the mayor! 

Now, to save you from a heart attack or fainting episode I must tell you,  the recipes had to use Gerber Baby Food as part of your ingredients.  After all, Fremont is the home of Gerber baby food and this week is the National Baby Food Festival.  This recipe is very good and my kids have even asked for it while it was in "product testing".  

You will also note that this recipe is derived from my recipe for Veggie Mac and Cheese. And of course NOW the husband says to me "isn't is more of a chicken enchilada" (insert hand hitting forehead)...yes, yes it is...but enjoy it anyway no matter what the name!!!
