If you’ve been paying attention to all of the talk, you know that today, December 21st, 2012, is supposed to be the end of the world, or at least the beginning of a catastrophic event, according to the Mayan calendar. Check out Joy’s post this morning for Mayan Chocolate Pudding for more details and a recipe to help celebrate the fact that we are all still here.
Today is also the winter solstice and it’s the day we planned to pick the winner of our December Giveaway.
So normally we draw a winner randomly from all the contest entries. But this morning, in honor of the events of the day, I decided that the winner should be the 21st person who entered the contest. I started counting up from the #1 to #21 and found our winner…
A big congratulations to TC! We’ll be sending you a copy of Slow Cooker Revolution by America’s Test Kitchen.
Okay, now here is the really WEIRD part. We asked contestants to tell us about something they like to cook in a slow cooker. TC’s answer was Puerco Pibil – which just happens to be a traditional MAYAN DISH from the Mexican Yucutan - slow cooked pork in banana leaves.
Do you hear the Twilight Zone music right now? I do!
There are lots of recipes for Puerco Pibil online. Here is a great looking one from the blog ICanDoThat. Check it out to learn more: Puerco Pibil.
Thanks to everyone who entered our December Giveaway.
Our next contest begins on January 3rd so stay tuned!
