It was 9:30 PM.
And there was an unexpected knock at the door.
The kids were fast asleep, so I quietly tip-toed downstairs and peeked through the window.
It was my dad.
From time to time, my dad will stop over unannounced so I wasn’t all that surprised. But on this particular occasion, I knew something was different (no one stops by when the kids are sleeping- enter at your own risk!).
So, I opened the door.
He handed me a magazine.
A very familiar magazine…
“If you turn to page 96, you’ll see your recipe from The Clever Cookbook. Congratulations sweetheart, you’re in Oprah Magazine” he said.
I nearly passed out from excitement!
My editor told me about the feature before it was published; I just didn’t know when I would see it for the first time.
The moment was something I’ll never forget. I could hear my heart beating while I froze outside (no socks) skimming through the pages like a maniac. What a fantastic surprise!
So, the next time you’re out and about look for the latest issue of The Oprah Magazine (January 2016).
You will get a sneak peek of my 30 Minute Broccoli and Feta Soup from The Clever Cookbook. The recipe is part of their ‘Green Gems’ feature. Available worldwide!
I do hope you get a chance to see it.
And if not, I will be giving away a few signed copies!
