News And A Thank You

Guess what? Here’s something fun. I won the Naturalizer Style At Any Age contest.

I know! I’m really pleased, and surprised.

I also need to thank you all so much. Go you guys! And go you so much that I’ll put together the giveaway for 2 pairs of Naturalizer shoes and get it up on the blog, as soon as I extract myself from the current project of Learning To Cook Indian Food.

So far I have determined that dried onion flakes do not like high temperatures. Am about to experiment with processing cooked spinach in the blender. I confess to some trepidation.

Again, thank you. It is such a pleasure to write for you all.

    @Dalit Fresco, The best way to talk about collaborations is on email, if that’s OK with you.

  • I hope you cooled the spinach first!

    @Rosie, Will do. Thanks.

  • Whooo HOOO! Congratulations on a most fitting win!

  • Woot! Way to rock them boots!

  • Congratulations! You really rocked the look!

    Let us know how that combination of dried onion flakes and spinach turns out. I understand your trepidation.

  • Congratulations on your win. Is there a reason you aren’t substituting onion for the flakes?

    You should be able to blenderize any cooked vegetable as long as you only process about a cup at a time.

    @Wendy Bird, The recipe called for onion flakes, and it was from a friend’s mother’s home cooking, who am I to question?

  • May I echo what one of your deft commenters said on another of your social media sites, “You were a shoe-in.” Isn’t that the best? And you WERE, too.

  • Yay! All is not right in the world.

    I too wonder why not an actual onion?

  • I meant to say all is now right in the world. Sorry, I was distracted by the child across the street screaming bloody murder.

  • You’ll have to keep us updated on the Indian cooking project. I’m always a fan of the flavours, but haven’t figured out precisely how to recreate them at home (though the near-misses are quite enjoyable!)

  • Thank you everyone! Onion flakes is what the recipe called for:). And you all are great.

  • Congratulations! I’m sure you received many votes from total strangers because yours was the best look with the boots! It was fun to vote for you.

  • Congratulations!! My husband gave me a funny look this morning when he heard my enthusiastic response to the Naturalizer announcement. You looked great and I’m happy to have had a small part in this recognition.

  • I can report you did quite well in the Chicago precincts.

  • congratulations and happy weekend to you!

  • Congrats and I am so happy you won. Well deserved and what a better way than to celebrate with a home cooked Indian meal. Happy Diwali.

  • Yipee! Congratulations.

  • I knew you would :)
