Thank You Cook Off-Bar Food May 2012

SAGA Humane Society Says ‘THANK YOU’!

SAGA Humane Society would like to give a big ‘THANK YOU’ to Mike & Danielle the owners of AJ’s & (Average Joes) & their staff for hosting our monthly Cook-off Fundraiser held on Wednesday, May 23, 2012.   What a night!

First, we had the battle of the North and the South bars…Scott Harnish & his staff from Palapa Bar & Grill and Mike & Danielle and their staff of AJ’s…we have not seen anyone bring their own kitchen…but Scott and the boys did!

We had a great night…we had 15 entries and a great crowd!!  We thank everyone who entered a dish.  The battle of the bars was close…but First Place went to Scott Harnish and his crew from The Palapa Bar & Grill with their Bacon with Maple & Chocolate Sinfully Fried. WOW!!  It was great!  And the crowd overwhelming voted for them!  They took home a Nano IPOD.  Second Place went to Laura Sutton with her Artichoke & Shrimp Dip.  She took home a Oyster 3-Cup Mini Chopper and Third Place went to Letti Hernandez and her Cheesy Stuffed Potato.  She took home a Hamilton Beach Juicer with accessories.  The other entries who were all outstanding, and the votes were close were:  Chicken Nuggets w/Honey Mustard BBQ – Wade the Gringo; Spinach Dill & Garlic Dip w/Homemade Bread – Joanne Frei; Pesto Pizza  – Renee Steinmetz; Penguin (Olive) – Nancy Scott; Tropical Roll-ups – LouAnn LeClair; Plaintain Ball w/Peanut Butter, Bacon, Cheese & Onions – Brenda; TNT Shrimp – Kendra from Orange Walk; Slow Smoked (not fried) Chicken Wings – Palapa Bar; Jodie’s Smoked Fish Spread – Palapa Bar; Sausage Dip –Palapa Bar; Salt-n-Pepper Wings – AJ’s; Deep Fried Pickles – AJ’s.
