Random Giveaways

I have accumulated a small stack of things to give away here - so I thought I'd just combine them all at once and have more winners! Seven of you will win today!!!

First, I received a freezer box in the mail with four big bags of Perdue Chicken Nuggets including a box of crayons and a baking tray. Perdue and Crayola have teamed up in hosting a contest about bringing fun to the dinner table.

To enter the contest, take a digital photo or color a freehand picture of how your family brings fun to the table. Entries will be accepted until September 30th. More information here.

I don't know when I have bought chicken nuggets, they aren't one of our favorites. I liked these for what they did not have in them - as they are all white meat and only natural ingredients. I liked these as well as I can like frozen chicken nuggets. And, they have served me well a couple of times when I was in a pinch for a child-friendly meal.

Five of you will win coupons for a free bag of chicken nuggets!

Next up is a book that I think would be super fun for getting gift ideas for Christmas! Sur la Table is just getting ready to release a new book called Gifts Cooks Love. And, they are giving one away to one of you! My favorite thing about this book is the entire last section which is all on creative packaging! This is a beautifully done hard bound book that I know you will enjoy!

Finally, I have a bookazine for one of you called Light & Delish. Each recipe boasts that it is 400 calories or less per serving. Recipes include pasta dishes, Chinese food and restaurant favorites.

There you go, leave a comment to be entered - no post tomorrow, I'll accept comments until tomorrow (Friday) night and announce winners on Saturday!

P.S: My friend, Michele, is having an adorable giveaway for an owl clippie just in time for Fall!

That gift book sounds lovely, and a perfect thing for our home. We are working hard this autumn on our hospitality, and I bet there would be a GREAT collection of things that our guests could leave with on their visits whether they be holidays, or just a drop by.

My kids love to take chicken nuggets in their lunchboxes. We put them in the toaster oven in the am, wrap them in foil, and they are still warm at lunch.
I too love creative wrapping for packages. Any of these giveaways sound great!

Sheila said...

Because I don't often buy them, my kids are so happy when I get frozen chicken nuggets. :) They are old enough to microwave them (yuck) themselves, so it's nice for me to have a 'free choice' meal as well. That Gift book looks really good. I just love books like that!

Oh Monica, how generous of you. I have to admit, we do not like chicken nuggets either. I know that they are very popular with some families, but we are just not keen. But I do love the book! It would make me more than happy to win it, so I will throw my name in *lol*

Thanks for offering the give-aways to your readers. Have a lovely day.

How very thoughtful of you!! The book Gifts Cooks Love sounds like a wonderful book. Any of the similar the Sur la Table books that I have seen the past have been chock full of ideas.

We normally make our own chicken "nuggets" but this would be such a time saver with our family going in so many directions. Even if it is only for a "snack" after band or football practice!

Once again thank you for giving us this opportunity and for your generosity!

Katie P said...
