Yesterday, in a fit of "let's just get out of here for a few days" we threw ourselves together and pulled out of town somewhere a lot closer to 9pm than we would have liked! Sometimes, just getting out of town is half the battle, and we were willing to wage that war while we had the motivation, rather than put it off for a more than likely surrender to just stay put! Which then led to my shower in a Walmart parking lot, in the middle of Burley, Idaho, this morning. I laughed at how completely funny the situation was....I mean really, WHO SHOWERS IN A WALMART PARKING LOT?! I even started up the generator outside our trailer so I could blow my hair dry! Awesome!
So, part of the success of this whole experiment having any success requires me to put my organizational skills to the test. Everything from the spices in my trailer kitchen, to the toys in my kids room, to the 30 day meal plan complete with printable weekly grocery lists. This week I realized that my dinners were a bit more complicated and un-summery than I would like. So this is when I thought about how I could suplicate all of you for a little help! Of course, I thought I would sweeten the deal by throwing a fun Summer Giveaway in your direction!
My brain is blank and I would like to pick yours a bit! What are your favorite summer meals? Something refreshing, delish, a must-have. Your go-to's. It can be a salad. A favorite fruit. It can include a recipe or just something you love. Anything that would spark my brain into action!
And speaking of Sparks......
MyBlogSpark sent me a fabulous gift pack from Betty Crocker. It looked a bit like this.....
A Pyrex bowl with a lid, a great ZAK design serving bowl, A perfectly size insulated tote & a box of the newest flavor of Suddenly Salad...Greek.
I am a sucker for Suddenly Salad. During the summer I love to have a box or two on hand for a quick throw together pasta salad. I add a few chopped veggies, olives, whatever and VIOLA. Easy-Peasy.
So how about a possible trade.....
If you will leave a comment with your favorite summer meal must-have, I will let Random.Org choose one of you at random, of course, because that's what random.org does....random, and Betty Crocker, through MyBlogSpark, will send you a gift just like mine! How fun is that?!
Really, I just need your help and I am not above begging....even bribery! I'll do it! I'm not afraid!
I will be gone for a few days. When I come back, on Wednesday, I will post the winner of the drawing!
Be sure to enter by MIDNIGHT on Tuesday, July 6th. Winner will be announced Wednesday Morning!
Good Luck to all of you....and of course,
THANKS FOR LETTING ME PICK YOUR BRAINS! :)
