Austin Report: Jackpot!

Last night was a special one for me. American Wasteland, my second child, won an IACP award in the first ever Food Matters category. As a result, the certificate pictured below now has pride of place in my Austin Motel room.

CBA Winner Badge

I also get to insert that neat winner’s badge in the sidebar. And call me crazy, but I’m putting it in this post, too, just for the heck of it!

My book was the joint winner with Deborah Krasner’s Good Meat. But since Krasner wasn’t there, I had the stage to myself at the awards ceremony.  The moment was thrilling and an honor and humbling and a blur. I can’t remember exactly what I said, but they didn’t have to usher me off with the ‘hint, hint’ music.

Anyway, a sincere thanks to all the readers of this blog, for contributing in small and large ways to last night’s moment.

In the last few days I’ve learned about a bunch of exciting new ideas and ventures. I’ll have more on those in the weeks ahead. In the meantime, have an unwasteful weekend!
