Pioneer Woman, Please Visit North Dakota!!!

This post is part of an effort by a group of North Dakota bloggers to get the attention of Ree Drummond, "The Pioneer Woman", in hopes that she will come share her wit and wisdom with us and get to experience our "Legendary" state first hand!
Dear Ree,
I hope this note finds things going well on your ranch!  It seems you have become a part of our daily life on our farm and in our home.  A good friend of mine, Val, over at the Wag'n Tales blog in Monango, North Dakota gave me your first cookbook, and I just bought your second cookbook for myself. I'm itching to cook my way through this second one as well!
The girls and I caught a few minutes of your television show on Sunday before church and boy were they ever excited to see "the real Charlie!!!" of your children's book series. We gave your "Charlie" books for Christmas to many friends and family members  this year.
Can't thank you enough for all you've done to make me a better cook and your efforts to promote a better understanding of agriculture. I especially liked the recent post "Working the Fall Calves" by your husband, "Marlboro Man".
Although it's cold here this time of year...
...I promise if you visit, you'll be greeted by many warm hearts and we're all eager to meet you!

For more about our great state, take a look at my winning essay for the "WHY I LUV ND" contest from a few years back.
Since you love food and cooking so much, you might be happy to know that North Dakota consistently ranks number one in the nation in the production of at least a dozen different agriculture commodities. We'd be happy to give you a tour of the foods produced locally, especially Brownings Honey and Dakota Growers Pasta...Mmmm :)

Hope to meet you soon! In the meantime, keep on sharing those recipes that include butter and bacon! We raise a lot of feedstuffs for the wonderful creatures that make them!
