This week we focus on rags to riches stories. We often daydream about suddenly coming into a windfall of money, but be careful what you wish for. Not everything that glitters is gold. Nydia tells us about Abraham Shakespeare, a man who won $31 million dollars in a Florida lottery. Was it happy ever after for him? Dana shares the origin of many of today’s Hollywood jargon by telling us the story of Clara Bow. Did fate have it in for her? Cindy tells us some insane lottery horror stories that will have you second guessing that lottery ticket.
For dinner this week, Cindy treated us to a rags to riches meal. She made a “Poor Man Husband Casserole” which didn’t just taste amazing but was budget friendly as well. For dessert, she took the rich man’s approach and served up some decadent
Orange Creme Brulee. Our meal was paired with Gouguenheim Malbec. This wine had an $8 price tag but tasted absolutely delicious. An excellent choice for the topic of the week.
