It is September 1st and time to showcase some new blog posts through the Country Fair Blog Party, which I'm happy to be a co-host of. Before we show this month's link-up, I'm going to share my three Blue Ribbon winners from August's Country Fair Blog Party:
Grandma Charlie's Purple Ribbon Cinnamon Bread last month. It is no surprise this is a ribbon winner since the bread literally already won her a purple ribbon as a 4-Her at the County Fair. What I love about this bread is that it is similar to Amish Friendship Bread, except with no starter mix needed and you don't have to make tons of loaves to finish out the batter.
Agvocacy through baseball and the "big city" foodies post. The first event she participated in was the "Pig and a Pint" event in Minneapolis. This event gathered influential foodies and pig farmers to talk about food. It sounds like she had some great conversations and got to eat some delicious food. The second thing she got involved with was a pork promotion at a Minnesota Twins game which included her throwing out the first pitch of the game. How cool is that! You better check out her post to learn more about both events.
A Day in the Life of a Cow on her blog, as told be one of her dairy cows. It was a fun post that was also educational. Their dairy cows get milked three times a day and fed twice a day. Their cows eat 100 pounds of feed a day! It sounds like besides milking and eating, this cow also enjoys napping and socializing ;)
