Grillin’ Goodies Give Away!

Posted August 23, 2011 by jimhigley

Win this GREAT assortment of Grillin' Goodies by posting a COMMENT (below). Post as often as you want. Just answer the following: "Summer is: ____________"

Remember the post I did a couple weeks ago titled, A Cure for “Dad, I’m Bored! where I shared our family’s long-standing relationship with Reddi-wip? Well, those nice folks sent me one dandy gift of grillin’ goodies AND they’ve offered to share the love with another Grillin’ Goodie Gift Basket for one of you! And because- as you know- I love games, we’re having a contest to determine the winner.

I’ll be having a “drawing” for the winner on Saturday, August 27, 2011, at 3:00 p.m. central. You can enter the drawing by posting a “comment” to this blog (below) completing the following: “Summer is: ______________.” You can post AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WANT. The more you post, the better your odds are of winning!

The winning Reddi-wip Summertime Grillin’ Goodie Gift Basket includes: a portable Smokey Joe Weber grill, a terrific Weber grilling mitt and apron, a make-your-neighbor-envious Brinkmann Stainless Steel BBQ Tool Set, a snazzy soft insulated cooler by Picnic Time, and ANOTHER on-the-go portable cooler by L.L. Bean and a bunch of Reddi-wip coupons, recipe cards and a Frisbee (when’s the last time you threw a Frisbee?)

How great is that? And there’s plenty of summertime left to enjoy all these great treats from Reddi-wip.

Comment now. And comment often. You have until 3:00 central time on Saturday, August 27. Go!

And enjoy my memory of our fun backyard party.

    AWESOME! My favorite time of the year in Nebraska. Always has been and I am sure always will be. It is lounging in the sun at the lake with family and friends, early morning coffee watching the steam rise off the water, the perfect opportunities to enjoy water sports. Teaching a young child to Wakeboard….throwing a smartaleck teen off the tube (nothing is better than that); late night cruises enjoying the lights of the night. Then there is baseball. The boys of summer are the best. Mowing the at first then not so much! Foodwise it is the grill. Nothing is better than a meal on the grill. After grilling it is the awesome smores. NO matter what age, the kids want to make them. To top them off….Reddi Whip!!!!
