Bertolli Giveaway Winner!

I  am a very scientific person by nature.  NOT!  Instead of using a random number generator on the computer (yawn, boring!), I decided to enlist the help of my cat, Scooter, to choose the winner.  Scooter digs rubber bands,  so I found a marker, and 6 thick rubber bands, and assigned each rubber band a number from  1-6.  I  mixed them up, and began flinging them at Scooter.  The one she attacked with the most vigor was the winner!  Once I got the rubber band away from Scooter, I was able to determine the winner.

The winner is #4, Patrick Clark!  Congratulations Patrick.  Bertolli will be mailing your prize package directly to you.

Many thanks to all for participating!

Bertolli Giveaway!

Fall is the perfect time for soup, and I am so thrilled to be able to tell my readers about a fantastic new line of soups offered by Bertolli!  Bertolli was founded more than 150 years ago, and you can often find their products in my pantry or freezer.  Their newest product is their Bertolli® Premium Meal Soups for Two!, as shown below.  They come in four delicious varieties:  Chicken and Rotini Pasta, Tomato Florentine, Tortellini with Chicken, Chicken Minestrone and Tuscan Beef and Vegetables.
Below is their chicken minestrone.  Doesn't it look delish?   The soups are packed-full of fresh vegetables, perfectly-cooked chicken or beef, and hearty pasta, and these restaurant-quality meals can be conveniently prepared at home.  Bertolli® soups can be found in the freezer section of your local grocery store.
I am offering one lucky reader the chance to receive a gift package from Bertolli!
