And I thought I'd throw in a few other things just for fun! Thanks for coming to my blog and reading about my family, looking at the recipes, and listening to my rambling random thoughts! When I started this blog, I didn't know if anyone would ever visit. I'm so glad to have visitors with so many wonderful blogs you have to choose from and so little time in the day and I'm happy that I've made friends through my blog so I'd like to show my appreciation.
Here's the little package of fun. There's a silly pair of socks to put you in the mood for Valentine's day.
And a copy of a cookbook I put together years ago. It's just a regular ward or community-type cookbook with no photos. But I still like many of the recipes and I use mine pretty often. You'll even find that some of my recipes on my blog, I have in this cookbook. I put it together to help raise money for my parents-in-law to build a cement block home. When Robin and I were married, they still lived in the house Robin's father made out of sugar cane stalks many, many years before. It was literally falling down around them. And despite the fact that we were better off than that, we didn't have money to build a home. I did sell lots of copies and we were able to put in some of our own money and got to build them the house made of blocks that they had been dreaming of. My father-in-law died just a month or two after it was completed. We were so glad he was able to live in it before he died. I do have some extra copies so I'm including one here!!
These are just simple IKEA utensils, but I love them. A friend gave me some with Christmas goodies and I use them all the time. You can even forget them in a hot pot and they won't melt...Not that I would do that! And if your name isn't drawn, drop by IKEA and pick up your own for only 79 cents for the set. Awesome price, don't ya' think?
Plus I'm throwing in a treat. If I pick your name, you can choose between Mint Meringues (with or without chocolate chips), Buckeyes, or Chocolate Billionaires.
So, if you'd like to throw your name into the hat, just leave me a comment with one of your favorite games to play with friends (board game or ice breaker type or anything). If you were already a follower by January 29th, you automatically get an extra entry when commenting. (I don't want anyone to become a follower just for a silly package.) Anyone who comments here will also get an extra entry if you commented on any of my posts in January, but please tell me you did in your entry. Easy, huh? I'll close this on Thursday, February 4th at noon so I can post the winner later that day and I'll email the winner or comment on their blog.
And stay tuned for more fun!!! I wanted to have two packages to choose from, but my plans hit a few bumps. I think it'll be ready next week and it'll be different from this one with a GREAT prize.
