Kroger Gift Card Giveaway

It’s Souper

Progresso Soup giveawayHere’s a cool contest from Progresso soup, promoted through MyBlogSpark. There’s just a few more  days to visit Progresso on Facebook to enter for the chance to win a full makeover in New York City. Three grand prize winners will be awarded a trip for two to New York City. The prize includes roundtrip airfare, a two-night stay in an NYC hotel, a full makeover, a guided wardrobe shopping spree with Louis Licari and a personal consultation at a New York City department store, and $1,000 in spending money.

Good Earth Dinner Kit Review and Giveaway

Good_EarthFatHeadDog loves meals in a box. If its food contained within a box–Hamburger Helper, Bento Box, McDonald’s Happy Meal–I’m in… so I was excited when MyBlogSpark offered me a chance to try the new Good Earth Mediterranean Chicken dry dinner kit and offer a giveaway to FatHeadDog readers.

Good Earth kits offer four meals: Mediterranean Chicken with angel hair pasta, Spicy Citrus Glazed Shrimp with angel hair pasta, Herb Crusted Chicken with mushroom risotto and Tuscan Chicken with penne pasta.

The Dinner

Right off the bat, I’ll say the Good Earth Dinner Kit was yummy. Never to leave well enough alone, I added Italian seasoning, diced green and red peppers to the skillet. Ready for my last ingredient, I go for the chicken…. cue the chicken! Err, I was out of chicken. Eh, I made it a veggie meal. Two paws up.

The Giveaway (has ended)

FatHeadDog will give one lucky reader the chance to try a new Good Earth Dinner Kit! The Good Earth gift pack that includes a Good Earth Mediterranean Chicken dry dinner kit, two sets of bamboo flatware, two bamboo dishes, a bamboo utility board and a 100% recyclable grocery tote.

Pound for Pound food bank challenge

Pound for PoundHere’s a chance to eat healthy, win free groceries and help the nationwide initiative Pound for Pound Challenge. MyBlogSpark, the General Mills blogging program, invited to participate in the Pound for Pound Challenge. Cool premise: For every pound participants pledged to lose through the Pound For Pound Challenge, the sponsors donated 14 cents to Feeding America- enough to deliver one pound of groceries to a food bank in your area.  While they are no longer accepting pledges, you can still help by making a donation directly to Feeding America. I encourage you to check out the site; there’s lot of great information to inspire your healthier eating today.

Kroger wants to help one of my readers save a bit of money while stocking up on healthy food items.  Time for a giveaway! Continue reading “Pound for Pound food bank challenge”

A Soup Kinda Gal

Some people are “meat and potatoes” people. Others are carrot stick kind of folks. I’m a soup kinda gal. In fact, I have a soup ancedote that not many can claim. In high school, I was asked to Prom over a bowl of soup. So I was stoked when MyBlogSpark teamed up with Progresso soup to let me host a soup kit giveaway and invited me to review its latest addition to the Progresso product line, High Fiber Minestrone. Mmm, fiber.

Gods of car care… I get the hint.

For as much as I love cars, I’m shamefully bad about getting my oil changed on a regular basis. About 2,000 miles past due for my oil change, I recently glanced at that auto shop reminder sticker with guilt–I know I need to do it. I know it can’t be good for the car. But I procrastinate, figuring I’ll get to it soon.

Like a beacon in my mail box, the nice folks at MyBlogSpark invited me to visit, sponsored by Shell Lubricants, and learn more about why frequent oil changes are so important. In return, Penzoil through MyBlogSpark offered FatHeadDog a gift certificate to have my oil changed and report on the experience.

Ok!  Gods of car care.. I’ll learn more about the importance of good oil and take my car in for heaven’s sake. I take the hint! Like they asked, I visited Motor Oil Matters, where I learned what the various oil weights, like 5W-30, 10W-30 and 10W-40, mean. And what does the ‘W’ mean? According to the site, not weight, but winter. (Really!?)  See, I did learn something.. how’s that for fun cocktail party trivia?
