Random.org came up with #14, and that’s Cathy Kurtz! Please, contact me at Kay@kayotic.nl so I can get the book to you asap!
I’ve just received a great give-away for those of you with children, grand-children or even cousins. I don’t think they sell Stouffer’s in my country, so I’m in no way related to this brand (just for the record). They offered one of my readers a free copy of this incredibly adorable and limited editions book: ‘Let’s Fix Dinner’, with gorgeous illustrations by award-winning artist and children’s author Todd Parr.
Being the mom of a toddler and coming from a huge family for which my mom cooked 7 days a week, this hits close to home. I’m a firm believer in family dinners (whenever possible). Dinner time in my home is sacred. We set the table, tv and phones are off-limits. We eat, talk, laugh and learn about each other’s day while trying to lure the kid into eating something he loved yesterday but dislikes today.
Without dependable housing those important family dinners, that are so normal to me and my family, are simply impossible. Therefore Stouffer’s donates all net profits (100%) from each book sold to support Habitat for Humanity. And I commend them for that.
Aside from that, it’s just an incredibly cute book with gorgeous drawings. I mean, look at it!
“How do you manage to get dinner on the table in time despite a busy job or schedule? What’s your game plan?”.
For me, planning my meals ahead works. During the weekend I collect those recipes I want to try the following week and I make a grocery list based on that. It’s not set in stone, but it gives me peace of mind to know what groceries to buy and what to cook for dinner that week. I think I spend less money that way on impulse buying, food items I might not be using at all.
No entries after October 1st and only one entry per person, please!
