I Won a Major Award

I Won a Major Award........ LOL
Okay, not so major.

I recently entered a recipe contest for Newman's Own products. I really wanted the "Grand Prize" Viking 42" Stainless Steel gas grill. Well, I didn't win that but.........

My recipe was picked as one of the top 50 entries out of all the recipes submitted. I won a custom made pepper mill that has a little metal plaque on it that says that it was made just for me to commemorate my achievement.

I can always use another pepper mill. Even now.

p.s. The box did say "Fra-jill-ie" on it.

I totally reworked my already award winning ("Anything Butt") Fire Roasted Vegetable Gazpacho. It ended up with several of the Newman's Own products in it in place of the original ingredients.

Way to go!

You'd better start drawing up plans for a bigger trophy case.
