You guys, I'm blown away.

That's FANTASTIC! Thank you!

The cookbook winners were: Trina Smith, Adam Teitelbaum, Kurt Libby, Sally Newton, Kate in St. Louis, and Matt Barr.
The four winners of the two Central Michel Richard gift certificates, Whole Foods gift card, and Alinea Starter Kit are still being sorted out -- one of the winners is on vacation (according to his email autoreply), but everyone who won has been notified directly via email, so congrats!
And, the winner of the stay and dinner at The Sheppard Mansion is Bill Colwell and his wife, Robin.
Thank you to everyone who donated, as well as to those who supplied the giveaway items.
Oh, and since we went over $10,000, it looks like I'll be eating softshell crab with durian. However, while typing that last sentence, I just now realized that softshells aren't in season until the 2nd or 3rd week of May, so let me figure out a workaround on that. I'll eat durian, for sure, but if you have suggestions for something other than my eating softshell crabs, hit me in the comments. Or, if you want me to wait until May to eat the crab and durian together, I'll do that. Your call. I leave the decision in your able, typing fingers.
Thanks again, you guys. $10,118. I couldn't be more proud of each and every one of you and how supportive you are of Share Our Strength. You're the best!
Be back soon... but until then? Jazz hands!
