Giveaway Announcement


M


ost of you have probably heard of CSN Stores. I have done a giveaway with them in the past, and I was recently contacted by their promotions team to do another giveaway with my readers from one of their 250+ online stores. CSN Stores sell a wide range of goods from cookware and vanities, to tools and lights.

Before I get to the giveaway announcement, here are my eats from today:

Breakfast was a bowl of mocha oats (1/2 cup coffee, 1/2 cup unsweetened chocolate almond breeze, 1/2 cup quick oats) topped with 1 banana, 1 T natural PB, and a sprinkle of maple flakes):







I was supposed to be taking a bunch of kids to our track meet today, but it was canceled due to 100% chance of a thunderstorm. I had nothing else planned to do with the kids, so ... MOVIE DAY!!! We watched Freedom Writers. My class actually got to go see two of the original Freedom Writer's speak this year, so it was pretty cool to get to see the movie that was made about them! The students loved it. Turns out there was no thunderstorm - darn weather man.

Lunch was leftover stir fry from last night, and some cherries.

I had an ice-cap later in the afternoon while we watched the movie.

My throat is still a little sore, so the hubby picked me up some Won Ton soup for dinner. I ate 1/2 a bowl, and also snagged some of his yellow chicken curry:







The curry had yummy bites of sweet potato, and chicken - mmmm!





Life Lesson: Food tastes MUCH better when eaten with chopsticks.

Write that down.

Ohhh a giveaway again?! Count me in! Weather men are always wrong in LA. I despise them. They say it will be cold so I bundle up and then end up sweating by noon. They say its going to be 90 so I wear shorts and flip flops and its overcast and cold! grrrr

you've seen my muffin tins! I need new ones!

Becca said...

There was a time I collected chopsticks, but I only use them when I have Chinese, so I've dwindled down my collection to my favorites only. Even Monkey doesn't use chopsticks. So have a ton is pointless.

Oh I just hate it when the weather people are wrong - especially when you base your day's plans around their forecast.

Rachel Ray is a hoot! I thought I talked a lot, but we'd be in serious competition if we were in a conversation together. Love the dishes. They look very versatile, stylish, yet practical. BTW, it's been great working with you this year. Have a great summer!
