I got some help from my youngest son this afternoon to draw for the winner in the cookbook giveaway. Shelia Bates won a copy of Start Your Ovens, Cooking the Way it Ought’a Be. It’s the official cookbook of Bristol Motor Speedway, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
A disclaimer on the winner: I worked with Shelia for many years when I was a reporter and editor at The Coalfield Progress in Norton, Va. When I read the slip of paper my son pulled, my husband asked if it was a fix. Ha! You can’t argue with a 10-year-old who pulled the entries blind from a cereal bowl.
Shelia will receive a copy of the cookbook (which is dynamite, by the way.) Many thanks to Shelia and to all who entered the contest. I appreciate you reading the food blog and offering your ideas.
Anyone who wants to order their own copy of the cookbook should contact the Junior League of Bristol TN/VA by e-mail at email@example.com or by mail at Junior League of Bristol, Tn/Va, P.O. Box 1599, Bristol, VA 24203-1599
If purchased from the Junior League of Bristol, one dollar from the sale of each book goes to Speedway Children’s Charities, a non-profit group that funds all kinds of important needs in the region.
