A special pancake breakfast will be held at Yett Memorial Park by the Blanco Cooks for the Cure Cook Off contestants. This will conclude their weekend of cooking competition. Pancakes will be ready Sunday morning at 7:00am first come first serve. A cash donation is requested, as all proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure branch in San Antonio, which service the Blanco area. There will be a variety of freshly made pancakes cooked to order with delicious syrups and sauces, which include fig jam, blueberries, apples, strawberry and maple. The famous Tyler’s Ultimate Pancakes recipe from the Food Network will be served. These include cottage cheese and orange zest. Also a simple oatmeal pancake with nuts and raisins for that extra fiber will be offered. Add a slice or two of Smokey peppery bacon on the side and you are good to go! It can all be washed down with a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate, orange juice or a chilly glass of milk.
Join us all weekend with events beginning Friday night, with a Pot Luck Venison Stew dinner along with a Margarita Mix Off, Jackpot Bean and a dessert competition. Saturday morning, the air will be filled with Smokey aroma of Mesquite wood and jalapeño peppers. There will be chili, chicken and pork rib categories along with the salsa for judging and sampling. Also, not to forget our friendly best friends, there will be a Pretty in Pink Pet Parade, open to the public for a $2.00 donation beginning at 11:00 am. Hand Made rugs and Crochet Tuscany Blankets will be in the raffle along with beautiful neck scarves (lots of pretty pink ones) to help keep you warm and lots of other crafted items. And of course, there will be those fantastic plants from Kalpak that everyone fights over. There will be desserts and cakes for the spinning wheel cakewalk.
On stage on Saturday afternoon, local musician Alan Cooper and Penny Conn and friends will perform for your pleasure. A special showmanship effort will be on stage about 4ish with the guest band Long Woodson from Austin for that acoustic rock sound. And it’s all free!!
Vendors are welcomed to set up for a $20.00 donation and donate one item for the raffle. And if you are not a cook, but love to eat, come out and be a judge. To judge, you must sign up in advance at the contact information below. Already some vendors who plan to attend will bring a host of crafted items that include hats, purses, charms, belts, and a variety of décor.
The weather is supposed to be gorgeous this weekend so as the friendliest folks in the Texas Hill Country host Blanco Cooks for the Cure Chili and BBQ Cook Off, the public is invited to participate all weekend. Our event will take place in Blanco, Texas at Yett Memorial Park on February 6, 7 and 8th. We are hoping this event will help raise funds towards the Cure and help support the local economy at the same time. Rain or shine won’t matter to these cooks.
