My 1000th post and a giveaway…

Today is my 1000th post on Day by Day with Beth Marie.  With so many different things happening in my life this year I wasn’t able to post as much as I usually did.  But I finally made it.

In celebration of my 1000th post I am giving away a cook booklet that was put together and published by the Board of Directors of the C-K Autumn Fest.    My sister in West Virginia played a big role in this.  There are several of my recipes included in  this cook booklet.   http://www.ckautumnfest.com/

“The C-K Autumn Fest takes place the last weekend in October in the two quaint communities of Ceredo and Kenova. The centerpiece of the festival is the famous Pumpkin House, which has become one of the favorite tourist attractions of West Virginia. In 1978, the Pumpkin House began with only 5 pumpkins carved for a Halloween display. Since then, the number of hand-carved pumpkins has grown to 3,000. Does a house with 3,000 hand-carved pumpkins attract attention? You bet! Each year Ceredo and Kenova welcome nearly 30,000 visitors to the Pumpkin House. Over the years we have watched children that have visited the Pumpkin House grow to have children of their own that they now bring to see the display. This sense of tradition and community inspired the creation of the C-K Autumn Fest, which is on the fast track to becoming one of the favorite West Virginia fall festivals.”

  16. Congratulations Beth on your 1000 posts. That is a real milestone that I can't even imagine reaching. What a lovely prize you are offering. Those kinds of cookbooks are the absolute best. I don't think I'll enter tho - I don't do that much cooking anymore and I have to many cookbooks already with no one to give them to. I have a new blog post finally when you get time to read it.
