We Have A Winner!

Wow, that was fast!  First of all, thank you to everyone who hazarded a guess--and let me tell you, there were some good ones in there!  The intersection between the full moon and autumnal equinox was a mad coincidence, I swear!  As for the rest...
  • We don't know when Rosie's birthday is.  She was adopted Dec. 9 2006.
  • My second year of blogging isn't 'til next month (and I keep thinking it's November, anyway).
  • Next month is also when Miss Chef and I will celebrate 10 years together!  (Amazing!)
  • Miss Chef's anniversary at the restaurant falls in August...and I can't remember how many years it's been!  (If I had to guess, I'd say...3?  It feels like more than that.)
  • Believe it or not, I don't remember how long I've known each of you, but I'm sure I'd be surprised by how short a time it is!

 Ok, so the real answer was: my 200th post (published right before the contest). 
Congratulations to Nekkid Chicken (also known as Mal), out there in Texas land.  I'm not sure how confident I feel about sending my homemade NC cayenne powder to the land of TexMex cuisine!  But I'll bite the bullet and put together a fiesta of Flartopian flavor for Mal's holiday pleasure.  I might even let the rest of you all have a peek at it later.
(And I swear on Miss Chef's well-thumbed Larousse Gastronomique that Mal's giving me a blog award had nothing to do with it!)


  1. Congrats Nekkid Chicken ( Mal).
    200 posts! Congrats to you.
    Looking forward to many, many more.

  2. Wow, 200 posts! I haven't even worked up the gumption to try one!!

    I'm sure Mal will put your home-grown and dried spices to good use.
