Thanksgiving is six weeks away.
Are you still there? Do you need a minute?
A few weeks ago, Corrinne from Alouette® contacted me about doing a Fall Wine and Cheese Tasting Party Giveaway to help promote their new mantra: “Slow Down and Savour.”
Nice idea, but I didn’t want to do a chintzy giveaway.
So, Corrinne gave me a rundown of the prize package, valued at a decidedly un-chintzy $150.
We’re talking …
•A Mariposa two-toned, white teak and bamboo cutting board with two swivel-style drawers
•3 stainless steel cheese tools: cheese fork, hard cheese knife and cheese spreader/knife
•3 stainless steel wine tools: corkscrew, bottle stopper and drip ring
•4 cheese markers with pen
•10 customized cheese rating cards
•10 customized pens
•Alouette® recipe cards
•365 tips on how to “Slow Down and Savour”
I can testify to the quality of the above items, because I received them myself in return for hosting this giveaway, and YOU WILL LOVE THEM. Having the wine and cheese tools stored inside the cutting board is unbelievably handy. A bottle stopper? Always wanted one. And I’m a sucker for the Alouette® Garlic and Herbs spread.
To enter, please answer the following question in the Comments section:
In honor of Alouette’s “Slow Down and Savour” mantra, what do you like to slow down and savour in the fall?
For me, it’s all about the classics – comfort foods, Hitchcock movies, listening to Garrison Keillor on “The Writer’s Almanac,” making time for small-town festivals and running naked through the fallen leaves in the front yard. What about you? Are you all about tailgating or getting lost in a great book this time of year? Is there a movie you just have to see or a CD you can’t stop playing? A certain food? A family tradition? A hobby?
OMG, now I really have to know.
The winner will be selected at random on Friday, Oct. 23, at 10 a.m. CST and announced seconds later! One entry per person.
Best of luck!
