My First Time

No, not that first time, pervs.  My first time doing a giveaway!  Details about it to come at the bottom of this post, but it involves some great cookware from the Le Creuset line!  A perfect fit for this blog and my love of cooking ;).  How was everyones weekend?  Did you miss my post about my adventures in baking?  Check it out here.

Saturday night, the bf, sister, and I went out to our favorite BYOB Chinese restaurant, Duck Sauce, in Newtown.  I know I have talked about it on here before, but it is seriously amazing, and relatively cheap.  We started out with two appetizers, the Chicken Lettuce Wraps and Steamed Pork Dumplings.

Then for our main course, the three of us split an order of the Orange Beef and Chicken Lo Mein.

Everything was so good, and I think for the first time we didn’t have any leftovers to bring home.  Which meant we obviously needed to walk around for a little bit after dinner to digest our meals.

After dinner we decided to head to one of the bars near our house for a little bit before going home.  They have a $5 pitcher special that is sometimes just too good to pass up.  We had two before heading home where we proceeded to drink and hang out a little more.  Needless to say yesterday was a slow one.  I never even got dressed and just lounged on the couch all day.  It was delightful.  I also ate a lot of pizza, which was also delightful.  Now it is Monday again, and I’m exhausted.  The bf is still sound asleep in bed, and I am so jealous of him.

Giveaway

Ok so last week, Sean from the Promotions Team at CSN Stores contacted me and asked if I would be interested in perhaps doing a product review or giveaway, and I said that I would love to give something away to my lovely readers!  The prize up for grabs is a $40 gift card to use on the CSN Stores Cookware website.  Personally, I really could use some new pots and pans and think the Le Creuset Cookware sets look awesome, but unfortunately I cannot win my own giveaway :(.  The gift card would be good for use anywhere on the Cookware website.  Unfortunately the giveaway is only open to US and Canadian residents.  Two ways to enter!

  1. Leave a comment here telling me what you would buy with the $40
  2. Tweet about the giveaway and leave another comment telling me you tweeted.

I will use a random number generator to choose a winner on Wednesday morning, so you have until Tuesday night to enter.  I’ll pick the winner and then you’ll just need to send me your information so we can get the gift card on the way to you.  Good luck!
