I. am. In.
Perhaps in over my head, but I am so excited. I applied for this contest on a whim back in the spring with a little idea that I had dreamed up. As I landed at Chicago’s O’Hare airport at 1am after my weeklong trip to Panama on June 12th, there was a voice mail saying I was one of three finalists. I think I stood up in my seat just as the pilot was saying, “Please remain seated with your seatbelt fastened.”
I couldn’t help it.
…So exciting and nerve wrecking all at the same time!
The biggest news?
I had to be ready for a tv performance a week and a half later. So, I scrambled to whip up batches of my Skinny Dinner Starter (like a madwoman). I hunted down the incredibly talented Courtney Kirkland to design some labels for me. I took a deep breath (okay, more like five million) and I headed to the TMJ4 studios for my 1 minute and fifteen seconds of fame. Here it goes.
I realize I was a bit over eager and over zealous. I smiled too much for sure. But, I still think my idea is
really good amazing. In fact, I have been a little slow on my recipes for Skinny Mommy as I have been working on a ton of recipes using the Skinny Dinner Starter. Wow! It works like a charm and has made dinner planning way easier. My family hasn’t even noticed we have been eating it so often because the recipes are all so different. I haven’t tired of it yet. I am not kidding.
I will have a little “cookbook” of the recipes done soon, but for now I just wanted to share with you all this exciting news.
So (please!) cross your fingers for me on July 24th at 2pm when I arrive at the official Hottest Kitchen Entrepenuer Challenge to serve my Skinny Dinner Starter to a panel of 6 judges and 50 guests.
I certainly hope I win.
