WOW I made it to the final round of the Hillshire Farm Sandwich Showdown! I can’t believe it. Now I am up against Lisa @crazyadventures and it looks like she’s got a crazy good recipe she’s gonna whip up. While we are waiting to start,

we syke each other out.

we stalk Ree Drummond (I really love this woman.) We sent the Hillshire Farm guy after her!

We get our picture with Ree (OMG she remembers meeting me last year at BlogHer!)

We have a conversation with Ree (OMG I’m screaming inside!)

We tweet that we just talked to @thepioneerwoman

OH, sorry I got sidetracked, I was talking about the showdown wasn’t I? So our ingredients are ready and so are we, its 2 minutes ’till victory. And here we go…

It seemed like an eternity while they tallied the scores to figure out the winner…finally the moment we have been waiting for and the winner is….


In 2 minutes she managed to marinate the lunch meat, make a special dressing and put the sandwich together! WOW she totally deserved to win :)  I hadn’t tasted any sandwiches up to this point but we tried each others and hers was amazing. Congratulations Lisa! Think of me when you are at the spa enjoying your prize.

The recipe I used for this round was

Chicken Parmesan


  • Hoagie Roll
  • Hillshire Farm Deli Select Oven Roasted Chicken
  • Ragu Pasta Sauce
  • Basil Pesto Spread
  • Provolone Cheese
  • Red Onion

Spread one side of the roll with Ragu, the other side with the basil pesto spread, layer the chicken, cheese and onion.  Yum Yum!

I want to thank Hillshire Farm for a great time! I was truly honored to be a part of the Sandwich Showdown.  Maybe we can have a rematch next year?  I’m watching you Lisa……

Thanks to Sandy @organizersandy for capturing these great memories for me with her camera
