Pot of Gold

Holy Cow! Slap me silly and color me tickled. Look what I won over at The Pioneer Woman!
Out of thousands of entries, the random generator picked me. Me, me, me! Have I mentioned how I lust for beautiful cookware and sharp knives? And I love this color. I have just the place to put it in the pantry in the new house. I'll be cookin' soup all winter (but not calf nuts, PW).


And ya' know, after a year of ice storms, funerals and generally crappy luck, it's nice for something good to happen for a change. Sigh. Thanks Pioneer Woman. You have no idea how much I needed this pot.

I couldn't think of anyone who deserved such a cool surprise than you Hula. In fact, I am sure if I had won it I would have left it at your door with no note. hee hee

Oh I just can see you now standing over that simmering (gorgeous blue)pot stirring some delicious something with a big spoon in your newly,and finished by then remodeled house!! Okay that was a very long sentence.

Perfect for your new house! Couldn't have happened to a nicer winner.

An early house warming gift. Love the color. Lucky you!

I love the color. You can cook a piece of meat in that pot wonderfully. Put on stove with some oil, season meat, brown, put on lid and place in oven. Cooks divinely.

Hopefully this is the start of something BIG! Congratulations on your win! Maybe you can cook the first meal in your new home in that pot ; )

What? The chances of me "knowing" someone who won something from The Pioneer Woman are almost as great as my winning the lottery! I almost feel like I HAVE won the lottery!

I'm so happy for you and your blue pot. You deserve it.

Thanks for the kindergarten poem, by the way. I read it and then accidentally deleted it like a dummy.

But I liked it, and it was very thoughtful of you to send it to me.

Congratulations ! Now, cook something in it and let us know what it is...possibly, send us a sample portion.

Kelley with Amy's Angels said...

Good for you.

I put in for that as well--but I'm thrilled that you won! WHOOOO!!!

I LOVE good cookware and knives! I always thought I was a little odd - especially about the knives.

Nice to know I'm not alone!
