Yes I said 9:00pm. I will ask you to review the last post for any evidence where I said 9:00pm EST. So really I am just early for CST.
Thank you all for the seriously amazing salad suggestions. I would have to whip up a new salad every day of the summer and then some to try them all, and let's face it, that isn't happening, but I have so many new ones to try now and that makes me so very happy. I am intrigued by the number of you who suggested spinach salad with strawberries. It was for sure the top suggested, followed by cucumber and tomato salad - which I have had and do enjoy- and somehow in my lifetime I have never tried it. Well bring on strawberry season! It's on the menu for the week after next.
Yes, I am one of those people who plans a menu for the week, sometimes two weeks. I promise that if you ever stop by to check out my studio without calling first you would never in a million years believe I could be that organized about anything.
But enough with the salads for now - to the winner! As always with these giveaways, I asked my daughters to pick me a number between 1 and 183. They chose 24, because, in their own reasoning, "There are only 24 days left of school!!!!!! (insert joyous glee and infinite squealage here)"
Someone refill my valium now.
So without further ado - my winner is Kristy "a simple greek salad topped with bbq'ed flank steak slices and balsamic dressing" from cottonaddiction, who earned that 24th slot by becoming a follower. See, it is worth something! Congratulations Kristy! I have already emailed you so as soon as I hear from you I will be sending your magazine and fabrics along.
Thank you again to everyone who played. I promise to mention any fabulous salads that I try based on your suggestions here on the blog. It isn't as good as winning, maybe, but I hope it will make you feel special.
