Thanks to all of you who commented about my signs on Friday!! I am so excited and will be starting an Etsy shop this week or as soon as I can. I will keep you posted on my progress!
I sold 10 this weekend at the Bar-B-Q festival. Not as many as I had hoped...but more people were just interested in buying the food...which was completely understandable! We were also told a storm was coming at one point, and it got really windy, so I put everything up for a couple hours (went home to check on my baby) and the storm never came.

My father-in-law was in the BBQ competition this weekend. He was making Hash...which is a Southern food similar to barbecue. My father-in-law's is a beef hash. It is shredded and then cooked in a big black pot and onions are added. (You can't even taste the onions... I am not an onion eater at all, but love his hash!) You will find many different recipes and types of hash out there, but I truly think his is the best!
Selling the Hash
This is what my father-in-laws hash looks like...
I don't like the way it looks, but it sure tastes good!
I feel like I sound really Southern saying that...:)
He won first place last year, and ended up in second this year. I wish it had been the other way around. He was a little disappointed. But, I thought it was great that he still placed!
Not too happy about second place
There are so many entertaining Bar-B-Q names that compete...Rubbin' Butts, Full Rack, Blind Swine...just to name a few :)
Anyway, I saw a couple of youth boys from our church (around the age of 16) with two of their guy friends at the next BBQ stand. I went over to them, gave the twins a hug, and said, "I know y'all are going to come try some hash over here. Do y'all like hash?" One of the friends whispered something (not knowing who I was). I said, "I'm sure you just said something inappropriate." He said, "Yeah, we like hash. We like to smoke it!"
One of the boys I know said, "Shut up! Do you know who she is?" I said, "Nice to meet you. I'm their pastor's wife." He quickly turned and walked away. The twins said, "You know he was kidding!" I smiled, they went their way, and I went mine :)
Hope you have a great week!
