The voting in our Greek entree competition has closed and we now have a winner. This was the first round in our cooking competition. I use the word competition loosely. While my kids enjoy coming in first place, they also vote for a sibling’s dish if they feel it was better. The competition aspect just makes things a little more interesting.
Each child is judged according to taste and looks. The winner for the appearance portion of the contest was determined by online votes. Pictures of their final creations can be found here.
