A queen’s feast

In the world’s softest competition, the cook-off at Storm coach Anne Donovan’s condo Wednesday evening was ruled a “team win” with everyone earning “top chef” honors. I was shocked Sue Bird didn’t demand a winner. She’s so competitive that she competes with unknowing drivers at stop lights, but after hearing about the dishes this morning, I can understand. And I’m sure Ginger, Janell Burse’s miniature poodle, got the best doggy-bag ever. Scratch that, I’m sure there weren’t many leftovers.
Burse whipped up some homemade jambalaya, while Betty Lennox provided cornbread and a layer cake from her brother. Rookie Katie Gearlds made chicken noodle soup (with homemade noodles) and Bird brought her famous chocolate-chip cookies and a salad. Lauren Jackson dished up a tuna casserole, which Diana Taurasi once said everyone should try. Wendy Palmer made a southern roast and Iziane Castro Marques brought a Brazilian treat.
Practice has just started, so I’ll see if there was an underground consensus winner. Otherwise, I’m glad these women will never go hungry.
