Winners and more

I'm back and eating a kick ass dal that I adapted from a recipe in Curries Without Worries by Sudha Koul. I added extra ginger in the hopes it would revive me post-travel.

All from the pantry, except the ginger, which I got from the fridge.

The winner of the contest is ctheokas. I had another wonderful entry from a previous winner, but I think she's disqualified this round. Yay Chris! Send me your address, your package of awesome is waiting.

As an aside, why don't more people like to win? What sort of contests would you like to see here? I'm sorry, but for now no win-a-date prizes are available.

When we arrived at the apartment I had a letter from one of the schools I applied to. I sat on the couch, bracing myself for the let down. But guess what? That feeling of face-reddening disappointment never came. I got my first acceptance! I can only hope that there are more where that came from.

Carrie said...

Amanda: No. it was mostly for my own edification and entertainment, as all contest entries are. I love your entries because you always try harder.
