Went to Denver for the show. It was Friday night and all day Saturday. Ryan and Mel and Melissa and Brett worked the booth so I was free to wander and talk. The kids hauled all the stuff to Denver, set it up and tore down. It was great having such good help. We sold out about an hour before the show closed, so that was good timing. We met some good chocolatiers who were very willing to share their knowledge. Networking is the best part of any business trip.

Just got home last night from 5 days in Texas. Hot and humid!! It is very pretty there, but happy to be home. Ron and I went down because I was one of 9 finalists in the National Chicken Cooking Contest. Didn't win the big money, but got the trip paid for plus $1000. We got to meet a lot of Food Editors from magazines and newspapers. That was really great. Had a good time, but I am now packing candy to take to Colorado on Friday for the Colorado Chocolate Show. Hopefully, next week will be calmer.
