We had a great time hosting the fifth annual Casserole Olympics yesterday afternoon. Like always, the competition was very fierce, with more than 15 casserole entered in the competition. The theme this year was Hooray For Hollywood, with entries spanning the years of Hollywood movies. The winners are shown above. From left to right are:

Gold Medal winner, new neighbor and first time Olympian Brenda, who made a Cowboy Cornbread Casserole that she called The Brokeback Mountain Casserole.

Silver Medalist Melanee, who made a dessert casserole slathered with chocolate that was called Like Water For Chocolate.

Broze Medal winner and next door neighbor Mike, who made a ham and cheese casserole called, appropriately enough, Ham And Cheese.

The best part of the day was spending a great afternoon with great friend eating a lot more great food than anyone needed. The second best part was dropping off a ton of food at the local homeless shelter, so others can benefit as well.

We'd like to thank everyone who participated and we look forward to many more events like this in the future.
