    While looking at some recipe websites, I stumbled across a couple of contests.

    The Tillamook Cheese Company is sponsoring a recipe contest for macaroni and cheese. Recipes (which have to be unique creations) will be screened by a judging panel. Finalists will be chosen based on their unique use of ingredients, taste, and overall creativity. The six finalists will be chosen to have a cook off in Portland, Oregon ... ALL EXPENSES PAID. The cook off will be on October 24. The grand prize winner will get $5000 and 25 pounds of cheese.

    I'm going to enter this contest just to see what happens.

    It looks as though I'm going to be eating a lot of mac and cheese over the next two weeks ...AND I'm thinking up some nifty presentation ideas ... which I can't share with y'all BECAUSE IT'S A CONTEST! :)

    Second runner-up will receive $1,000 cash, 15 pounds of Tillamook® cheese, plus various other prizes.

    People's Choice winner will receive $2,500 cash, 25 pounds of Tillamook® cheese, plus various other prizes.

    I appreciate your optimism.

    I'd be thrilled just to be one of the six finalists ... but we'll see. Having just printed out the contest rules, I noted use of the term "amateur food lover."

    Given my background, I cannot be described as an amateur. I've written to the contest organizers to see whether or not I'm eligible given my culinary arts background and years of experience in the food service industry.

    I'm guessing at this point that I may not be able to participate.

    Rats ... I just heard from the contest organizers.

    As a food service professional, I'm not eligible to participate. Participation is for amateurs only ...
