For those of you that don’t keep up with all of  my comings and goings (and let’s be honest, I don’t keep up with my own comings and goings), I participated in a Food Lion Frugal Cook-Off about a month back.  We competed on teams of three and turns out, my team won!  I was honored to cook along with Kelly from Foodie Fresh and Wendy from Charlotte Smartypants. We were given 30 minutes and $15 to build a meal for four people with one main and two sides.

Our Curry Chicken Sate with Peanut Sauce, Asian Rice Pilaf and Teriyaki Roasted Carrots pleased the judges and all three of us walked out with $250 gift card to use at Food Lion: one for each blogger and one for our readers.  I’ve already given away the gift card meant for a blog reader (congrats Beth W.!), but I decided to split my gift card in half and give half to a non-profit that could put it to good use.

I had readers offer up their favorite non-profits two weeks ago and now I’m going to present you with the opportunity to vote for the one you want to receive the gift card.  All you have to do is mention the non-profit that you want to win in the comment section below!  Feel free to share this post with your friends in order to generate more comments for the non-profit of your choice.

And, because I’m pretty excited about it, I wanted to share with you this segment from WCNC Charlotte Today which aired yesterday and highlights Kelly, Wendy and me demonstrating our recipe and how to find our ingredients in Food Lion.

 Now, for the list of Non-Profits that you can Vote to Win a $125 by mentioning them in a comment below.  Entries are due by November 6th, 2012.
