Aunt Julie's *Recipe Week*, Day #7: Saturday Sweets and a Giveaway!

OK, you fans with a Super Sweet Tooth...Aunt Julie has really outdone herself today! Aunt Julie's *Recipe Week* is coming to a close, so thought we'd lay a Sweet Suprise on ya. But first, some light housekeeping to take care of.

I promised you, when this all started, that you'd get a chance to share this week. Well, Here. It. Is! We plan to start Another Great New Popr's Giveaway today, and thought we'd do things a tad differently this time.

Here's what ya gotta do. Starting today, please E-mail Veggie Mom your favorite recipes. They don't have to be Holiday Treats, but the More the Merrier! The Great New Pop'rs Thanksgiving Extravagana Giveaway Starts Today, and as part of that, we would like to run as many Readers' Recipes between Sunday, November 16 and Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday, November 26, as we can. Here's how the Giveaway will work:
  • For every one of your recipes that I publish here at Eat Your Veggies! (and I promise to run 'em all!), I'll give you 2 entries in the Great New Pop'rs Thanksgiving Extravaganza.
  • Then, starting tomorrow, for every comment you leave right here on Eat Your Veggies!, you'll get one additional entry!
  • The Great New Pop'rs Thanksgiving Extravaganza closes at 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, November 26. That's Thanksgiving Eve.
  • What do you win? Uncle Lynn will pick 5 Grand Prize Winners! That means 5 Lucky Readers will win a complete box of Pop'rs each. That's All 8 Flavors! Remember, Pop'rs are that Oh, so Good for You seasoning that ecourages folks both Near and Dear to Eat Their Veggies! Isn't Life just Grand?
  • Uncle Lynn, my fanTAbulous BIL also known as Mr. Pops, will announce our Giveaway Grand Prize Winners Thanksgiving morning. So, you'll get to have your Pop'rs and eat your Turkey, too! Or something like that, anyway!
OK, I also promised you a Sweet Surprise from Aunt Julie, the Best SIL a gal ever had! So here it is...and I hope to hear from Oodles and Oodles of you, starting today! And keep your eyes peeled, starting tomorrow, for some Really Delish Readers' Recipes!

Breanne said...

I have been gone and came back on yummy brownie day!!!

Michelle said...

Oh I am SOOOO making these. And I promise to send some recipes your way. I'm in Seattle right now, which makes it a bit hard to make sure I'm getting the recipes all right :)

Rhonda said...

First off, I have to tell you that I tried three of this week's recipes already!

The beef stroganoff was delish!

The broccoli soup was fabulous (in fact I finished it off for breakfast this morning!).

And the chili recipe was a huge hit!!

Now, about the recipes. I may consider passing along two of my favorite recipes, but ONLY because I think everyone lives in lands far, far away from me and won't bring the same dish to the same potluck nor will I have to hear about how much better theirs is than when I make it. That would suck!

It would be for the super easiest S&S meatballs and for my peanut butter cup cookies. Both are always huge hits!
