And the winner is...

There's a "Noodles & Co" restaurant two doors from us (I think I've enjoyed maybe five meals there since they opened four years ago), so I signed up for a free birthday meal... and on a lark entered their "March Madness" contest. Hey, you never know.
Except that I haven't won anything (at all) since I was a sophomore in high school, many decades ago.
So when I ever got an email telling me that I was one of the 255 winners of a "Mac 'n Cheese bar for 20" I was very, very excited. Even though I am not really that into pasta. (When I lived in Italy, it caused the sisters no end of consternation when I would skip the pasta altogether.) But free is free. And free food is always good to share.
That was yesterday, when I was at a workshop all day and most virtuously did not look at my phone from 9 to 4. When I finally got home, I was bursting to tell the first sister I encountered. It was Sr Helena. Seeing me in happy dance mode, she commented, "This is about food, isn't it?" 
Yep. And free food is always good to share!

We had been hoping to have a gathering to welcome Sr Lusia back from her cancer treatments and thank all the volunteers who pitched in for three months... This makes it doable!
