One contest winner and a new summer contest

First, we'll end the week with a cookbook winner: Evelyn Ribadeneyra is the winner of my random drawing for a copy of the cookbook "Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream Desserts," by Jeni Britton Bauer.

And here's news on another contest, a summer-photo event being put on by Our State magazine and the N.C. Department of Agriculture's Got To Be NC campaign: Take a picture that captures North Carolina's diverse agricultural community and you could win a $75 box of products grown or produced in the state from NCDA and Roote North Carolina.

Seven winners will be picked, which are pretty good odds in the contest world.

The deadline is 11:59 p.m. July 25, and you can enter up to five photos. You have to be at least 18 years old and an N.C. resident to enter, and the photo has to be taken in North Carolina. To get the rules and upload photos, go here.    

(And the photo up there, taken by me at Fuller's Barbecue in Lumberton, isn't agriculture. But it's definitely a taste of our state for a little Friday inspiration.)
