Sloan Mom Murphy Wins Gabereau cooking prize

    Patrica Murhy was really hoping CBC radio host Vicki Gabereau
would play one of her son's songs - entering the recipe contest 
was just a sideline to her request. 
    Instead, Murphy - mom to Chris Murphy of the Halifax grunge
band SLOAN - won one of the top prizes in Gabereau's Family Favorite
Recipe Contest.

    As for the music, well, folks at the atfernoon radio show decided 
it wasn't their style [ASR;their loss!].

    Murphy gets a beautiful pottery bowl made by a B.C. artist for 
submitting her recipe, Thai Fish Soup, winner for the appetizer 

    More than 1,000 recipes were entered in the popular contest.
    "People who try it out for the first time might find it pretty 
spicy, but we like at our place," says Murphy of the recipe she got
from her sister in Toronto.

    "Both my kids are vegetarian, so I'm always trying out different
