A Pork Be Inspired Giveaway

The food situation in this house is a bad one, friends. We’ve basically been living off of fast food. I mean, yes, I know… I JUST HAD A BABY. Good excuse, I think. But no. This must stop. We have to get back into the habit of, like, cooking and stuff. For our health, but mostly for our budget.

Cooking is like working out to me. When I stop doing it for a while, my physique suffers (because Wendy’s Pretzel Burgers), and I’m also scared to jump back in.

Anyway, I need to get over it. I’m hoping to get my act together enough in the next week to start meal planning again (or just sticking to the meal plan programs I subscribe to). I’ll also be taking the coupons the Pork Be Inspired campaign sent me to the grocery store next time to stock up on some meat.


Remember when I made that Summer Pork Chop Salad for the National Pork Board as part of the Pork Be Inspired campaign? Well, they sent me a really cool pack of goodies, including some very nice grilling tools and steak knives, along with some generous coupons and (Scott’s favorite!) a meat thermometer. (And that snazzy apron.)


And they want me to choose one of you to receive the same pack of goodies. So check out the 10 for $10 recipes and tell me which one sounds the best to you (no, you don’t have to pick my salad!). I’ll draw a random winner on Wednesday, August 28th.

Contest is closed! Congrats to Mark! Random.org chose comment #43. I counted the 23 FB comments first, and Mark’s was the 20th blog comment. Thanks to all for entering.
