Wonderful Treat






What a nice treat to get in yesterday's mail!  A few weeks ago one of my favorite authors posted a recipe from this cookbook and asked you to tag who you would invite to dinner.  If selected, you would win a copy of the cookbook.   I was so pleased to learn that my response was chosen.  I sent my address to the email listed and then...as life got busy...forgot about it.  Yesterday this wonderful treat arrived in the mail.   Close enough to my birthday to consider it a birthday gift!  Wrapped in pretty tissue and string...with a cute note...
and autographed, too!  I am thrilled for several reasons:
  • I adore all of Adriana Trigiani's books and love the way she writes
  • Was thrilled to get to meet her when she was the featured author at the Library Author Luncheon last year.  She could not have been nicer!
  • I love to cook, and when we moved and downsized last year I gave away many of my cookbooks because I just did not have room for them.   I am now on my building library committee ( if you know me, big surprise, huh?) and I can see I should have saved them for this library instead of donating them to other places.
  • I love how Adriana relates to her readers on her FaceBook page...and how she shares ideas, thoughts, and family recipes with others.
  • I am always looking for new recipes and this will give me lots of inspiration.
So, thank you VERY much, Adriana Trigiani...for your gift, for your novels, for the way you share your world with all of your readers.  And now...a cup of tea and a cozy chair to sit and read my new cookbook!I love the title...love my sisters!
