I don't know if you have noticed or not, but Savoury Table has been kind of quiet lately. I usually try to post about every five days or so, but for the past few weeks I've been aging my posts a little bit longer. There's really no earth shattering reason. There's no crisis in my life or news of glamorous adventures, we are just trying to do what lots of people are doing right now, we are trying to sell our house.
For anyone who has sold or is selling their house, you know what a pain it can be especially if you have lived in it for more than 5 years. We have accumulated so much junk over the last 11 years that it has surprised even me. There is not one thing in this house that hasn't passed a serious "want or need" head chopping. I still have a lot of junk but it is the cream of the crop junk that remains. Round 2 head chopping will take place when we start to box things up. Round 3 when we arrive at our next place and start to unpack. After that we should be good for another 10 years.
Since our house is on the market I haven't been cooking at all. I kills me to say this, but due to the smell and airborne grease, we are temporarily a bacon free home. I have been taking great pains to make sure that my house smells like clean cotton with maybe a little apple cider Yankee Candle aroma around the kitchen to cover up any lingering odors. Oh the cruelty of it all! A family can exist on cold sandwiches and salads for just so long. I hope it sells quickly because I feel a mutiny brewing.
Luckily for me, Applegate came along to stock my fridge with a sampling of their new Half Time lunch kits to feed to my "boys". They have teamed up with Annie's and Stoneyfield to make a lunch you can feel good about giving to your kids . . . no matter how old they are. I love Applegate products because they are free from any artificial ingredients, preservatives, antibiotics or hormones.
Applegate supplied me with 3 kits which each contain ham, chicken or bologna, crackers, cheese, yogurt and some gummies or cookies for dessert. Along with these lunch kits, my package included a coupon, activity book, a create your own lunch bag and markers for coloring said bag. They have also offered an identical package for me to give away to one of my readers.
If you'd like to win this Applegate gift, just leave me a comment and you are entered. Since I have enabled Google+ commenting and not everyone has it, you can leave a message on Savoury Table's Facebook page and that will count too. This drawing is open to US residents only. I will give this prize away at noon mountain time on Friday, September 26th. Good luck!
