Bragging Rights

I enjoy all the thread posts that talk about success with something, whether it's your own or someone you love. It would be cool to have a thread with just the "feel good" news so that we can have a place to boast a little. I know I'd come back to reread some of the stories if I was having a tough time with something else. Like an on-call cheering section. What do you say? Ready to start bragging?

(sorry, leftover thoughts from another thread, but bragging nonetheless)

I'm going to brag tonight because I made my first chicken parmesan from scratch. I don't normally eat it & I never breaded anything before. I used Chef Robert Irvine's recipe but I didn't use the amount of parmesan cheese that he called for. Instead I used a little bit of shredded mozzarella & parmesan cheese mixed together.

I made my easy, from scratch, spaghetti sauce & everything I touched today turned to gold!

I also have no idea what a tube is either & I'm from Pa.
