completely CRACKED open

I don’t have an electric can opener.  Any time someone cooks in my kitchen, they are puzzled by my lack of this appliance. (Insert obligatory I-don’t-buy-single-use-gadgets explanation here.)  In my defense, I don’t eat that many foods that come in cans, and a large percentage of the few canned foods I do eat come with pop tops –even my guilty secret canned salmon.  The most commonly “opened” foods in my house are eggs and nuts… and fortune cookies.  This next Call wants to see your wide open work, and the juror is fantastic…

Check out this Call for Entries from BWAC (Brooklyn, NY) for Wide Open 9.  Discounts for early entry, a distinguished juror & cash awards. This is one of my favorite venues & the early bird deadline is just around the corner. Take a look…
