Red Gold Tomatoes – Contest!!

Oh! It’s Thursday.  I guess that means I should join in with the others at The Diaper Diaries and tell you about something I love.  I love recipes – mayhaps you have noticed? For a blog that is supposedly about ‘stuff to do with kids’ I talk about food a lot.  I try and can fruits and vegetables when they are in season, but one can only stand the sight of peaches, corn, strawberries and tomatoes for so long before you start cussing at them.  No one should be brought to a place where they are swearing at produce. 

I also am somewhat of a lazy canner, if that is possible.  I get sick of blanching and peeling; so by the time I get to the slicing and dicing I just hack at it a few times and toss it in the pot.  When I am actually cooking something that I want to have some visual appeal, I have to call for backup.  Enter Red Gold.

I don’t use much canned product other than tomatoes, actually.  Since they are going to be compared to my ugly but delicious Summer in Michigan tomatoes they had better taste good.   I know a good tomato when I taste it.  Red Gold is good – want to try them for yourself?  There will be two winners, so no worrying about telling other people about this contest and then having them win and not you.  Here is how to enter:

1 – Leave a comment below

2 – Post a link to this giveaway on Twitter and then come back here and post a link to the tweet.

3 – Follow me on Twitter, and then sent me a tweet (@BigBinderBlog)letting me know.

4 – Become a fan of Big Binder on Facebook.

5 – Blog about this contest and link back to this post.

Every time you to each of these things, leave a comment. Each action will score you one entry.

Two winners will be randomly selected from all eligible entries posted by 3/10/10 at Noon EST. Please make sure there is a way for me to contact you if you win. The prize will be shipped directly to your home; so please enter even if you live in Missouri, or Texas, or Los Angeles, or Kalamazoo.  

 The prize is really fun.  It’s a giant can:

with this stuff in it:

Good luck!






When Red Gold contacted me and asked if I would be willing to write a review and hold a contest, I said yes and accepted one of the giant cans for myself.  Seems only fair; but the FCC wants you to know.
