1st in State!!!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to share my enthusiasm in that I won a 1st place in the Indiana Skills USA competition. This got me over 15,000 dollars in scholarships.

Since I won state, I now go to nationals in July!!!!
After winning, it made me realize even more so, that this is what I want to do with my life. FOOD

Anyway just had to share in my excitement!

I went to skills for my school in NJ a year ago and turns out the kid that placed first in NJ went to nationals and placed 1st there too. Now is on a full ride to CIA. I met up with him at dinner one day because he was in my group and I asked him knowing he was from NJ too and he told me that he won, so i said OH SO YOUR THE GUY THAT KICKED MY ***!? he laughed.

Anyway congads man thats awesome. Its not an easy thing to do thats for sure.

Whatd you make?

I made a small salad for the first course and then my entree i did a stuffed chicken breast with sautted veggies that were seasoned with lemon pepper and that was served with potatoes au gratin, sauted spinich and a grapefruit sauce. (forgot to add sugar to the sauce) and desert i just did a simple apple tower with puff pastry filled with carmalized apples and a carmel sauce.

Didnt place.

The day OF the comp. 15 min before we were about to start they told us "the fire marshel told us we can use the ranges" so we had to do everything in the oven. which i later found out it was a test to see how well wed adapt. The girl next to where I had to put my food served raw chicken. :suprise:

Enough about me.
