Surprise in the Mailbox

I recently won a little contest on my bloggy friend Beverly's blog, The Beverly Buzz.
She challenged anyone who wanted to participate to try and guess words that were spelled as they are pronounced in the South. She called it "Southern Speak". I technically tied with someone else but she chose me as the winner because I lived the farthest away from her (I live in Washington {the state} and she lives in Tennessee) and she reckoned {now there is a southern word for ya} I wouldn't have been as exposed to the southern drawl as the other contender. MY LUCKY DAY!

So this is the box she sent with some fun things that represent the South.

The box included a family published cookbook (those are the BEST kind), the book MORE HOW TO SPEAK SOUTHERN, 2 GooGoo Clusters Supreme candies, some Moon Pies {I haven't had moon pies in years...no, that would be more like decades}, a cute cardinal sachet, a small pin with a religious symbol on it, and a pretty fall oven mitt.

I would have to say that I SCORED!

A Big THANK YOU shout out to Beverly.

[I can't wait to try some of the recipes in your family cookbook]

Yea!! I'm so glad everything arrived intact. I was afraid that chocolate would be a "goo gooey" mess. Hope you enjoy!
