Today I’ll begin working on the round-up for my month-long celebration of having 100,000 visitors to Sass & Veracity and drawing a winner for Gordon Ramsay’s new book, Three Star Chef.

I hope to have it posted tomorrow along with the your links that I promised and the well-deserved thanks to those of you who took the time to stop by and say hello.  I do know how hard it is to get around to the blogs you enjoy, then try and juggle all the events that take place in FoodLand, so I appreciate that you took the time for mine.

I’ll let you know what the runner-up prize is tomorrow.  Must.  Go.  Shopping.  Hmmm…jalapeno sauce, habanero salsa, chipotle peppers…If you have any ideas, by all means, let me know immediately and I’ll hop right on it!
