I won One hundred Dollars

Yes, I entered a contest that a grocery store here in town put on. Can you believe it??  I never win any thing.  In the sale flyer it told about the contest and I thought I would have a change to win.
They wanted you to tell them about one of your first meals as a new bride .  Well this was not my first meal by a way but it was my first meal in an new apartment in Miami.
My Mother was not a cook so I had no training!!!!!! I wanted to cook a meatloaf for dinner and I didn't know how.  I didn't have any books to look in so I went to the phone and called a number that was in the phone book.  A woman answered and I said Hey, you don't know me but I am a new bride and want to make a meatloaf tonight for dinner, would you please tell me how you make one???
She laughed and said she would.  She and I talked probably 30 minutes and she told me just how she made hers and I made one that night and it was very good.  I have made them that same way ever since!! 
This grocery store is one of two we have in town that is about 80% organic. We do have another that is 100% organic but it wasn't having the contest.  We are so happy about this b/c it is not looking good for grocery money this week!!  So if the card comes through in time we will have 100.00$ to spend there!!!   YAY  YAY!!!

More good news my dear friends!!  I am out of pain!!!!!  YAY!!
Have a good week!!!
Love coming your way, Zoie & Fern
