Birthday Winners!!!

Okay, so I didn't post this on my birthday...I was busy celebrating with Tony and the kids...and recovering from the week before. All this baking of cinnamon rolls and sticky buns for the Market and farmers market is sucking all the sleep from my Thursday and Friday nights! But...Tony and the kiddos made up for it Sunday with a great birthday lunch at Khan's (Mongolian barbecue, yum!) followed by birthday "cake" (one left over 8x8 tin of rice crispies from the farmers market they put candles on) and, drum roll please....Tony cleaned up the dishes left over from all my baking the day before! What a sweetheart! I also got a gorgeous candle and a lovely compact brush...that Susanna thought would be hers because she picked it out...for MY birthday. I think not!

And today, two of my sisters-in-law, Beth and Lori, along with my niece Carrie took me to lunch at Seven Seas, the new Chinese restaurant in town. And other than the local German restaurant, that's about as ethnic as you can find for food here in Park Rapids! But there are some other great restaurants.

Oh, I'm getting off the point. But that's okay, since not too many people obviously have been reading my blog!

Here are the winners of Watkins' AWESOME new garlic pepper grinders:
Lilly -- first person to post a comment
Brownie -- June 3 winner
Amanda -- June 5 winner
Dorothy -- June 7 winner
Precious Grandma -- June 9 winner
Shannon Olson -- June 11 winner
Karen Overly Warnick -- June 13 (my birthday!) winner!

Congrats everyone! Please email me your address at linda@keepagreenhome.com to receive your prize! Of course, if you want to just stop in and see me and collect your prize that way, you're welcome to do that, too! I'll try to shoot you each an email, too!

Watkins Give Away!

Okay, because I am feeling guilty for not updating my blog as often as I should.....

because I have a new URL for my Watkins website (check it out at http://www.keepagreenhome.com/ -- catchy, isn't it?)....

because I want to see if anyone is still following my poor, neglected blog...

and because I absolutely LOVE this new product...(Garlic Peppercorn Blend # 00533 Enjoy the fresh flavor of gourmet pepper with our new peppercorn grinders! These grinders have a unique design that will catch your eye and please your palette. Filled with our top-quality peppercorns, these disposable grinders are convenient and easy to use – just twist to grind. Enjoy the taste of freshly ground pepper on all your favorite foods, naturally! -- contains sea salt, peppercorns, garlic, onion, parsley, and oregano, YUM! There are also three other grinders available...look on my Watkins website under "Pantry" then "Grinders")
I am going to give away some of these brand new garlic peppercorn blend grinders from Watkins!

3. One entry per person, please.
4. You do not have to order anything to win, BUT if you DO order something thru my Watkins website or via email (if you live locally), you'll get an extra entry for every order you place.

I will give away a grinder to the first person who posts and one every other day (odd days, including today) until my birthday.....don't know when that is? Better get hopping! Know when it is?
