Ritchey said she was so excited to reveal a $500,000 prize that she forgot about the food.
"When I realized I had won, I ran to tell my fiance. We were both so excited that I completely forgot about the food and ended up burning our dinner -- it was worth it though," Ritchey said.
The winner said she already knows what she will do with the money.
"I've always said if I ever won the lottery, I would buy a house, and now I can," she said.
