"Really?" said I, a bit skeptically.
As he put his ballot in the fish bowl, he looked at me and said, "This is the ballot that you are going to draw." I didn't really think that much of it until later that day when I drew his name as the winner of the contest! What amazing powers of attraction!! If you know Steve Hudson, this may not come as a big surprise! He and his wife Wendy teach classes at the Awakening Angels School for Healing and Enlightenment, so I know that he knows all about The Secret and The Power of Attraction!! In fact, it was from these two that I first heard about The Secret all those years ago!!
You may also know of Steve's generosity... he has demonstrated this once again by donating his gift certificate. These were his exact words: " As for my predictable win (smiley emoticon) I would like you to donate it to a deserving someone of your choice as an early Christmas gift from Santa Steve."
Thanks to 'Santa Steve' I have come up with a fun holiday give away idea for my awesome Zengarry friends!! AND I have decided to upgrade the gift certificate to $80!! That's one FREE cooking class or Healthy Lifestyle Immersion Program!! To be entered in the draw to win this 80$ Zengarry gift certificate towards the class of your choice, you must:
1) Like Zengarry Vegetarian Cuisine's facebook page
2) Share this contest post with your friends
AND 3) Post your favourite plant based holiday recipe or a link to your favourite plant based holiday recipe on Zengarry Vegetarian Cuisine's facebook page!
Just think about it!! If we all post one holiday recipe, we will have created an awesome holiday recipe resource!! You will have so many ideas for Christmas dinner that you won't know what to do!! And as a BONUS.... if you post a picture of the dish that you have prepared, and tag Zengarry Vegetarian Cuisine, you will win an extra chance to win the draw!
