Back in April, when I left you for a few days to walk through historic streets in Georgetown, tour our nation’s Capitol Building and eat at an awesome French bistro some friends had recommended (even though I forgot the e-mail and never got the text message, we landed there anyway, so my friends were right!), you were nice enough to take a survey and tell me interesting things like where your best meal was and about your kitchen fears and what we could do to improve the site.
So today, when I head to the airport and board a plane bound for M-A-I-N-E, where I will spend the last four days I have left of being 26, I thought we’d do something else kind of fun.
(If you were bummed about not winning the Destination Dinner or a box of homemade cookies, never fear.) It’s giveaway time. Again.
The people at Barhyte Specialty Foods sent me four bottles of their Saucy Mama’s Lime Chipotle Marinade, and I get to give one each to four of you. All you have to do is leave a comment here by August 25, 2009, noon, CST, (let’s just say it’s a significant day in the life of yours truly) telling me who you’d like to have dinner with, if you could have dinner with any person, living or dead, and why.
Oh, and if you’re wondering what in the world you’d do with the marinade, should you win, I’ve got you covered there, too. My recipe—aka entry in a food-blogging contest that I will tell you all about—will be posted Monday, the day before the contest ends, while I’m still hiking in Acadia National Forest or eating a lobster dinner or, I don’t know, sitting somewhere and doing nothing but watching the ocean. (I know, I know, but I had to brag a little, right? Pictures and stories when I return, I promise, another year older and wiser.)
**This contest has ended. Congratulations to the winners!
