GIVEAWAY! But first, a story.

It has been a long time since I have done a Giveaway, huh? Well, I am doing one, RIGHT NOW. But first, a story:



Tonight I had to take some Pampered Chef boxes to a client, and pick up some swimming gear for Abby and then take her to swimming. This was all supposed to be happening during the "dinner prep" hour. Where I think about what I am going to make, check to make sure I had all the ingredients, and commence with dinner.




Instead, I was in the car.



I decided on Chicken Curry. But wasn't sure I had the toppings, and there is nothing I hate more than a 5:00 p.m. grocery store run. Because the store is ALWAYS packed. ALWAYS. And I ALWAYS just need one thing, and it drives me bonkers to drag 4 kids into the store, fight the crowds, and get back to have to cook dinner after it all. Going to the store is quite enough. No?




I avoided the store, and hoped for the best.




When I got home I discovered there was no Cashews, and no shredded coconut. Curry wasn't happening.


This is where my life has been transformed. Truly, truly transformed.


I have a Pampered Chef Grill Pan.


If you have been to a show in the last 5 or 6 months, you have probably seen it in action. It is amazing. And up until about a week ago, I had the Grill Pan, and used it religiously. To be fair, it has ALMOST been as amazing as the Deep Covered Baker. But, I was missing something. It's companion piece the GRILL PRESS. I finally got it, and my life has changed. Forever.



I store them sitting inside one another in my cupboard. When I got home, I turned on my stove, and put the pan with the grill press inside it on my stove top. I had a conversation with Jaxon's respite worker, and got out all the ingredients to my dinner. . . . and THEN, I got out three FROZEN chicken breasts out of the freezer, and when my pan and grill press had been on for about 6 minutes (I really wasn't counting) I threw the frozen chicken in there, put the press on top and walked away. I prepped my veggies, I boiled water, I got out a bottle of Thai Peanut Curry Sauce. Within 11 minutes, my frozen chicken was completely done. And looking beautiful, like I had just pulled them off the grill.







Please ignore the dirty stove top.


And you might say, why didn't you just use the grill? And to that I would say, who wants to walk in and out a bunch of times, have live fire with a toddler around and have to clean the grill? NOT ME.



So, now, to my GIVEAWAY!

I know you are all HOPING it is the Grill Pan. But it isn't. It is the GRILL PRESS. Why? Because the grill pan ain't cheap ($135). HOWEVER, I DO want you to have it. And you can get it for $54.00 right now, because the special of the month for hosts is 60% off the GRILL PAN. And before you think, wow, even $54 is alot, I want you to think about all the "power tools" your hubby has bought for 5 times that amount that he has used a couple times. Now think of having THIS power tool in your kitchen. Enough said.



So, here is how the GIVEAWAY is going to work.



ONE ENTRY- Post a comment


SECOND ENTRY- Grab my button and put it on your blog (Post a comment saying you did it!)


THIRD ENTRY- Do a post about my blog, and link back. (I will check, so post another comment so I can see it!)





FOR FIVE MORE ENTRIES- Place an order from my Pampered Chef website at http://www.pamperedchef.biz/Lindseyscooking . ENTER GRILL PRESS as the host name. I will ship directly to you, where ever you are. No problem.



FOR 10 MORE ENTRIES- Host a catalog show. Why do that? Because if you can collect just $150 in orders, you can have the Grill pan for 60% off, and it is WORTH IT! It can be ONE order, or 10 orders, they just need to add up to $150 BEFORE tax and shipping. I will even set you up on-line and have everything shipped to you. If you go this route, I will be dropping catalogs in the mail to you tomorrow. If you get more than $150 in sales, good for you, and you will get more free stuff.





FOR 20 MORE ENTRIES-

Host a cooking show. Now, I know that this puts my local peeps at an advantage, but HEY! That is what they get for living by me! :) If you book your show, I and you win the drawing. I will put the press on your order when you have your show. If you don't hold your show, you don't get the press.
