When I click on the link "Current Contests" the website informs me that the entries are closed.

Hence my question. They've always ended on a Wednesday, save for when a computer glitch occurs.

Is there a provision for closing the contest early if there are enough submissions?

This has happened a few times in the past. The contest rules state that a contest ends on Tuesdays at 6:00 PM Eastern time. I have a feeling someone will pick up on this and open the contest back up until Tuesday of this week. Get your recipes ready!!!

Thanks, Pat; I've seen it happen in the past, too, and it's been because of computer glitches. Here's hoping

Oooh, me too. Monday mornings are always when I add my recipes. Total drag this morning (as if Mondays are bad enough as it is). I figured someone had already asked the question. Love you guys!
