Perrys’ Plate Turns Three! + Annual Birthday Giveaway
Perrys’ Plate is three years old today! I decided to give my blog a present this year (don’t laugh) and revamp the index. TA-DAAA! I’m super excited about the make-over, and I think it will make it much easier to find things. I want to thank Cara at Cara’s Cravings for inspiring me to do my index this way. (I pretty much stole her idea, but she’s cool and I don’t think she cares. Um. . . right? :))
You know what else this birthday means, right? Yep, free stuff. For you. I love those who comment and those who simply blurk, and if it weren’t for everyone, this blogging business would be no fun at all. So thank you!!
As I mulled over a few giveaway options, I decided to give two lucky winners one of my most favorite appliances ever — an immersion blender.
If you’re not familiar with this handy little tool, you can use it for almost anything a blender can do. Only instead of bringing the food to the blades, you can bring the blades to the food. I use it for all kinds of soups, sauces, and my husband uses is almost every day for his breakfast smoothies. The one we have is made by Braun and is a seven-year-old wedding gift. I would give you my exact model, but unfortunately I couldn’t find them anywhere. Tragic. But I’m pretty sure I found you an equally great one — a Cuisinart SmartStick that comes with a 2-cup blending. . . cup. I trust Cuisinart and have been really happy with their appliances, cookware, and customer service.
I’m starting to sound like an infomercial.
Part two of your gift (yes, there’s a part two!) will be a copy of In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan. His mantra “Eat Food. Not too Much. Mostly Plants.” has been one we’ve adopted as a family. Perhaps one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.
I’m a big Michael Pollan fan, and I believe that every person on the earth who eats food needs to read this book. (My husband thinks so, too. He actually said that before I did. It took me almost a year to finally get around to reading it after he did. I was sorry I waited.)
It won’t gross you out. It’ll enlighten you and change the way you look at food.
Forever. (In a good way, not a Fast-Food-Nation-grisly-tour-through-a-meat-packing-plant way.)
