And The Winner Is...

Thanks to all who took time out of their holiday schedules to enter the Bloggers In Italy contest. I discovered some great new blogs and will be posting a round-up of them tomorrow. I'll then add to it from the lists I'd accumulated to create a region-by-region tally, which I'll post before leaving for our trip to the US. You'll have so many fun new bloggers to check out that you won't even notice my two-week absence!

Bryan drew the winner's name out of a hat today and while I'd orginally planned on photographing him doing so, our current water-less state has left us both extremely un-photogenic at the moment. But the entries were each carefully inserted and the winner is...

Sognatrice of Bleeding Espresso who comes to us from Badolato, Calabria!

Congrats! Your goodies will be in the mail to you soon.

Buon Anno a tutti!

Happy me! Had I won I planned to greedily accept the chocolate but ask you to send the Artusi book to Sognatrice. I already have a well-used copy from the original published translation. I really do not need that chocolate anyway. All
All is well that ends well.

Have fun in the US-is this your first trip back? Will you be in NM?

Woohoo for me--and thanks Bryan! I'm *so* looking forward to that book. I mean I love chocolate too...so I'm greedily accepting all of it (but I'll end up sharing around here I'm sure) ;)

Thanks again!

Can't wait to see that round-up :)
