And the winner is......

Toontz! Congratulations, you have won the Food & Wine Cookbook! I will be contacting you to get your email address.

I used a very scientific method to choose the winner. The names of those who left comments were written on paper and I brought in a skilled team to pick one. First, there was Larry the Cat.























He checked out the situation, but could not be bothered at this time. I even tried removing them from the basket, no go. He has some serious sleeping on the register vent to do.

So, I brought in the next expert, Hello Kitty. Ahh, she was much more interested (did I mention she has a thing for chewing paper, especially my magazines at 3am). She sized up the situation, reached in delicately and snatched her victim. I apologize for the blurry photos, she had no interest in posing for the camera.
















So Toontz, in your comment you said you could use some help with food and wine parings, here you go! I look forward to reading about your success!

Thanks to all or you who left comments. Look for more giveaways in the future!

I love your method! Your kitties are adorable. Mmm, I don’t think our dog would be any better at picking out a winner (unless it had a food group in it or on it). Thanks so much for the giveaway. I cannot wait to start using this book.

LOL great method! I will keep it in mind next time I have to draw a name from a basket. :)

That is awesome! I have had my dog do the same thing! So much fun to get the family involved. I love that Larry couldn't be bothered. Such a cat! ;)

HILARIOUS!!!! I almost wish I had a pet so I could have him pick my cookbook winners. There is an odd guy who wanders in and out of our dumpster area, though. I may press him into service. Hah! My word verification is "SumoFun." I always find interacting with Sumo Wrestlers very fun.
