Fifth Blogoversary Cool Stuff Winners

I have to tell you that my family has been lovely and so supportive as I've been talking non-stop about how cool it is that I've been blogging for 5 years. I read your awesome comments out loud as they would come in and the fam listened attentively. 

It could also be that I made a Killer Arroz con Pollo and I had a captive audience, but that's not important right now. My Arroz con Pollo de Perez-Puelles recipe can be found right here.

I kept talking about the many wonderful cyber-relationships I've developed over these last five years and how, even how with those of you that I've met in real life, it's never been "weird." I always feel like I'm with old friends. 

So, again, my thanks for being such wonderful readers and friends and so generous with your compliments.

Congratulations to all the winners and thank you, my friends for all your very kind words. (Stop it. I'm blushing.)

Winners, please send me an email with HEY, MARTA! I WON STUFF ON YOUR BLOG in the subject line so I don't accidentally delete it. Send me your snail mail address and I'll make sure your goodies go out ASAP. 

Thanks again for playing and for celebrating with me. I'll be resuming the Cuando Sali de Cuba posts this week and I also have lots more stories and giveaways (!) coming up.
