My first blog giveaway

Hi there! Since my last post on my chicken pie, I was thinking of what other pies I should do. Maybe I should do something savoury? That is not something I do often. Actually, I'm just thinking of what I should do with my Le Crueset baking dish worth about $30. I have one in Cobalt Blue which is my favourite colour of all time, and I'm thinking of what I can do just to use that dish. Maybe I should make Mac n Cheese? Baked rice with fish and lots of cheese? With all the fruits in harvest, perhaps a fruit tart?

Anyway, what I'm going to tell you is happening so timely. I am having my first giveaway! I'm so excited because the good people of CSN stores are going to give a lucky visitor a Le Crueset Pie Dish so that you and me can do our pies together! Moreover, since my birthday is coming up soon, I take this as an opportunity to share my joy with all of you! Isn't this great!

Just drop a comment, perhaps giving me some ideas on what pies or tarts you can think of baking.  After 12 August (which is my birthday!), one reader will be randomly picked for this gift. This is open to US and Canadian readers only, hurry!

I just baked a pie (in a terrible dish that needs replacement) on Saturday night. I love apple pie because it's always been my favorite-- I think it's the combination of the thin apples, cinnamon, and dulce-de-leche ice cream on top when it's hot from the oven!

mike fox said...

Great prize! Perhaps you could put down a thin bread dough and fill it with al dente penne, black olives, tomatoes cut to preferred size, and blackened chicken slices. Toss in some al fredo sauce, bake it for 12 minutes around 400 degrees, and you'll have a nice main one-dish meal out of what is typically a dessert pan!

Susan said...

I'd make a beautiful pear torte!
