thank you!

I was sorting through the recycling on Monday morning when Mike said to me, “Bad news.” I’m not too quick in the mornings so my first thought was, “what?! I broke the Nespresso machine again?! (I’m really bad with coffee machines.) “Nope,” he answered, “Even worse!” A million things ran through my head: he said it was bad news, but he was smiling, even smirking a little, so it couldn’t be bad. What could possibly be bad-good instead of bad-bad!? He didn’t keep me in suspense for too long though. “You won!” There I was, literally down on my knees by the trash (we keep the trash and recycling under the sink) when I figured out I won Saveur¬†Editors’ Choice Best Cooking Blog.

It’s been three days now and I still can’t believe it! They chose little ol’ me?! Thank you to everyone who voted, thank you to the Editors at Saveur¬†and congrats to all of the winners and nominees! Please excuse me while I go hang out in corgi-position on the couch and try to process the craziness.
