For those of you celebrating victories from the November 2nd election, please take a moment to sober up and move on. For those of you upset about the outcome of the November 2nd election, please take a moment to sober up and move on. We have many reasons to be thankful, all recognized in today's Fillmore County Journal.

What's unique?

To my right is a paper written by Jennifer Quanrud, a senior at Fillmore Central High School who was selected as the recipient of the Journal scholarship for the 2010-2011 school year.

It was a very tough decision to narrow our focus on one student with so many talented applicants, but Jennifer stood out with something "unique."

Thanks and congratulations to Jennifer for sharing all the reasons we should feel fortunate to live in this area.

Tasty Temptations

On Tuesday, November 9, in collaboration with Preston Foods, the Journal will host the first-ever cooking contest displaying a selection of homemade recipes presented by local cooks from Canton, Chatfield, Fountain, Harmony, Lanesboro, Lewiston, Mabel, Preston, and Rushford, Spring Valley and Wykoff.

Cooking contest participants will compete in the following categories:

Appetizers & Beverages

Soups, Salads & Vegetables

Main Dishes & Casseroles

Meat, Poultry & Seafood

Breads & Rolls

Pies, Pastries & Desserts

Cakes, Cookies & Candy

Dips, Sauces & Spreads

Special Diet

The cooking contest at Preston Foods will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 9, with a group of judges taste-testing and ranking all recipes to determine who finishes in first, second and third places. Harmony Foods, Preston Foods and Rushford Foods is sponsoring a donation of up to $765 in gift cards to use at any of their three grocery stores, paying out to the top three finishes in each of the nine categories.

There will also be an open house at Preston Foods from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., so it will be a good time to check out the completely remodeled store, inside and out.

In total, there will be 83 recipes provided by all of these local cooks published in a special cookbook that will be distributed in over 12,000 copies of the Fillmore .....
