It’s cooking competition time!

Mom & Dad were so excited to go to our neighbor’s, Chef Dean’s, cooking competition! The first night, they went with their friends, Kari & Curry, and got to dine on an amazing meal with the secret ingredients of Chayote Squash, Duck & Blood Orange! Mr. Dean crushed the competition, and got to move onto the next 2 rounds! Mom & Dad got tickets to the final competition to see him win too, but unfortunately, Ben got the flu that day, so Dad got to go and celebrate with Abby instead. We texted Mom the whole night though so she could see what was happening! They had an amazing meal with Parsnips, Flounder & Passion Fruit. Can you believe that Mr. Dean won the whole thing?!?!?!?! Check out what he won!
