Happy holidays! Hope you guys all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Man, I’m still full. We made a feast and brought it over to our dear friends, who just had a beautiful baby girl a few days ago. There were about 10 people in all, and we had a blast. Here’s The Angry Chef’s Maple Whiskey Turkey, which is hands down the best bird I’ve ever had.
So, guess what?
Old Saint Nick was sitting on our porch last night when we finally strolled in. Yep, that’s right: Santa came early here at The Mouse House!
We stuffed him with homemade cookies and eggnog. And don’tcha know, he was nice enough to leave behind a pile of presents just for our readers!
Announcing The Hungry Mouse’s Holiday Gift Extravaganza
So! As a special thank you for all your support over the last year-and-a-half, we’re spreading holiday cheer all month with a series of extra-special giveaways.
I mean, who doesn’t like prizes and presents? ‘Tis the season, after all. And we love you guys!
Here’s the skinny on how to enter
I have three fabulous prizes to give away. Each Monday, I’ll post the details about how to enter to win that week’s prize.
There won’t be much heavy liftingâ€”we’ll ask you to leave a comment answering a question. We’re trying to keep it simple, so each person gets one comment/entry per prize.
Winners will be chosen by random number generator and will be announced the day after each contest ends. I’ll ship prizes out ASAP, so they’ll hopefully arrive in time for the holidays. Winners will be notified via e-mail.
As it turns out, Santa was working in conjunction with the companies noted below, who generously donated these three prizes. (Thank you!) They’re each sitting at The Mouse House, waiting to get bundled up and shipped to the lucky winners.
Contests are open to U.S. residents only. I’ll be posting official rules with each contest.
Nov. 30 – Dec. 4: Enter to win a Nespresso Espresso Machine
This is a Nespresso Essenza C100 in Twilight Blue. Estimated value: $249.
One winner will be announced on Saturday, December 5.
This prize is near and dear to my heart because it was donated by the good folks at KitchenArts right here in Boston.
KitchenArts is one of my favorite kitchen stores in the cityâ€”delivering all that good, old-fashioned personal advice and help that are the hallmark of good indy shops. If you’re not in Boston, definitely check out their online store for lots of hard-to-find gadgets and goodies.
Dec. 7 – 11: Enter to win a Cuisinart Food Processor
This is the Cuisinart Pro-Custom 11 Food Processor (model DLC-8S). Estimated value: $169.
One winner will be announced on Saturday, December 12.
I love my Cuisinart. I’ve had it for years, and it’s never failed me. This prize was donated by our friends at Cuisinart.
Dec. 14 – 18: Enter to win a Vita-Mix Blender 5200
This is the Vita-Mix 5200 in black. Estimated value: $565.
One winner will be announced on Saturday, December 19.
I should tell you: I don’t even have one of these. This prize was donated by our friends at Vita-Mix.
I’ll open the first contestâ€”to win the Nespresso machineâ€”on Monday, Nov. 30. We’re really excited, and hope you’ll come back and enter to win.
