So last week I mentioned a couple of times that I had an exciting announcement that I would be sharing today. And of course, people started thinking and talking amongst themselves. And these people decided that the announcement must be that I am pregnant. Because that was the only logical thing that I could be announcing. And I am NOT pregnant. So, I am very sorry to disappoint everyone who came here today expecting news about a brand new person being on the way. And while my announcement is very exciting, there is nothing quite as exciting as a new baby, so it’s a little hard to follow up something like that. Anyhoo- without further ado- here is my exciting news:
I am taking part in a fun and fabulous Velveeta Casserole Challenge. I was selected (and also paid!), along with four other bloggers, to be a part of this challenge. I wasn’t allowed to say anything until today, so I have been practically bursting trying to keep this news in. So, what is the Velveeta Casserole Challenge exactly? I’m glad you asked. I had to create a casserole- yes, make up my very own recipe- that would serve 8 people, cost less than $20 and use Velveeta Cheese. Now you may be aware that my cooking abilities are, shall we say, lacking. But you know what- this casserole that I came up with- it’s really good. I mean- really, really good. When Rich took his first bite of it he said, “That’s really good.” And the last time he said something like that about my cooking was… well… never. (Although, I have to be perfectly honest and tell you that Rich helped me quite a bit with my recipe.)
Now for the best part about the Velveeta Casserole Challenge: The five of us who were picked- we get to share our recipes. Then we will all beg our readers to vote for our recipe so that we can win the challenge. The winner gets some fabulous Cuisinart cookware and a $500 grocery gift card. And you know what? I really want to win. But you know what else? The other ladies really want to win too. Now the voting doesn’t actually start until October 30th, so I have plenty of time to come up with ways to bribe you into voting for me.
Throughout October I am going to share with you how I came up with the recipe that I made. Here’s a little hint about my recipe- we love pizza and we also love meat. But if you want to know anymore than that, you’re going to have to stay tuned. Then once the voting begins on October 30th I will start my begging and pleading to get you to vote for me. Oh- and I’ll have some fun giveaways too, so it won’t all be begging.
Just in case you’re curious- and I’m sure you are- here are the other 4 participants:
Be sure to keep coming back because you’re going to want to try the recipe when I post it. And of course, you’ll want to enter my giveaways and vote for me.
