National BBQ Contest Winner!

The results are in! 
People from all over the country threw amazing barbecues featuring local food from their regions. I had a blast reading through all of the top entries. Birthday parties, thundershowers, Brickworks, farmer's markets, you name it... Canadians sure know how to throw a party. 
Better yet, "By buying local food you are supporting your local farm families and economies, eating food with higher nutritional content and preventing pollution from the extra packaging and transportation." 

If you sneak a peek at the last post (beneath this one) you'll understand why I'm thrilled to announce that I won! See the link for the full story. National BBQ Day Winner...
Thank you for all the support from friends and family!
This tasty success puts two Westjet tickets in my hands.
...Now, where to go and who to take...
