I don’t care if you’re a mother or not; tomorrow is Mother’s Day, and I am a mother, and you all make me happy, and so I wish you all a very happy day. (So there.)
In honor of this auspicious occasion, I’m going to give away two fun prizes, because you are my favorites.
First, I have the ultra-girly (not that I’ll judge if you’re a guy and like these, too, just sayin’) Women in Love Collection DVD set, which includes Return to Me, A Walk in the Clouds, and One Fine Day. If that doesn’t scream “Girls’ Night In,” I don’t know what does.
Second, I have a brand-spanking-new copy of Monica Bhide‘s new cookbook, Modern Spice: Inspired Indian Flavors for the Contemporary Kitchen. Monica happens to be just as sweet and nice as can be, but never you mind that, because this cookbook, good gracious, it is beautiful and sumptuous and the recipes are easy but delicious and completely stunning. If you love Indian food (I do) and thought you couldn’t possibly cook it yourself at home (I did), you need this book. I have finally expanded my Indian cooking repertoire beyond coconut rice and sweet potato curry (go, me). Seriously, y’all—I have two words for you: Pomegranate shrimp. Yum. (Oh, wait; I have two other words: Mark Bittman. He wrote the foreword. This is a really good cookbook.)
Want to win one of these Mother’s Day prizes? First go read the contest rules and regulations and then come back here and leave a comment before 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, May 10th, 2009 telling me which prize you’d like to receive for a chance to win. I will select two winners at random, as usual, and the rest of you will just have to have fun with your ponies, I guess.
