What's For Dinner Gift Basket Review and Giveaway - CLOSED

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED
Are any of you kitchen gadget collector's? Well, I'm not, so when a gift basket from
My Blog Spark came in the mail, it was timely!
This is the state of my current colander:


This is my new colander from the gift basket!
My children enjoyed the gift basket too. Dixie loves to grate cheese with this nifty grater and Elijah of course loves using utensils to help me out in the kitchen.



Now, we get to the really good stuff. This new dinner kit from Romano's Macaroni Grill called Creamy Basil Parmesan Chicken & Pasta included linguine pasta, grated parmesan and romano cheese blend, basil and cheese seasoning, creamy sauce and sun-dried tomatoes. Add to it about 1 pd. of your choice of meat and a few veggies on the side and you have a delicious complete meal! My family loves the noodles! You can also find a $1 coupon here.

My Blog Spark has been generous enough to offer THREE "What's For Dinner" gift baskets for me to give away to three of my readers. Each gift basket includes a sample of the Creamy Basil Parmesan Chicken Pasta variety, three coupons for you to try the other varieties the next time you visit your local grocer, a colander, serving spoon and cheese grater.

You may do any of these to earn one entry each for this giveaway:
