It Must Be My Lucky Week!

Tropical Island Salmon

My Tropical Island Salmon tied for First Place Overall Winner in DMBLGIT! I am so honored, giddy and tickled pink salmon. Thank you!

On Monday, I also won the 2007 Chamber of Commerce Minority Business of the Year honoring my husband and my other business, Digital Doctors. Should I go out and buy a lottery ticket?!? If I ever win the lottery, I swear I will buy all my readers a new rice cooker….all 5 of you! :-P

    See, “new” rice cooker implies a “replacement” … and ya’ know darn well I ain’t got one. ;-)

    Congratulations! That dish looks positively gorgeous!

    I’m certain there’s way more than five of us. Some of them, like myself, like to lurk around and silently admire our muses ;) Congrats.

    Congrats to you and your hubby! That photo took my breath away from the second I saw it, it totally deserved 1st place. I actually made this last night and my photo wasn’t as pretty lol. But the salmon was superb. I’m going to cook salmon this way from now on. Thanks Jaden!
