The Art of Random Willy-Nillyness: Country Crock Summer Veggie Moment Giveaway!

Country Crock Summer Veggie Moment Giveaway!

This summer we had a bounty of fresh veggies from our garden. We had tomatoes, squash, zucchini, eggplants, radishes, cucumbers, green beans, corn, carrots and so much more. There is nothing like eating fresh veggies that you have grown.

With such a bounty, I have to come up with new and different ways to serve up the veggies because after a while it gets a little boring. This year, I found a few new recipes for my squash and tomatoes as well. My favorite way of serving veggies is to saute them with some butter or olive oil. But because I am trying to lose weight and get healthier, I also started using Country Crock to lower my calories.

With 70% less saturated fat and 30% fewer calories than butter, Country Crock is a perfect way to keep make my veggies a little healthier than usual. Country Crock adds some of that buttery richness to plain vegetables. 

Country Crock has given me a “Summer Veggie Appreciation” basket to give away to one lucky reader that includes:
* A basket perfect for toting summer veggies
* Cooking tools to help you prepare and cook your summer veggies
* A copy of A Very Veggie World by Clare Crespo—a unique recipe book full of fun and whimsical inspiration
* And, so you can top your veggies, a coupon for a free tub of Country Crock
This is a wonderful prize pack. I already used my basket to go pick the last remaining veggies that are in my garden. It was the perfect tote! YAY!

  82. I found a very helpful article under the IN THE KITCHEN: VEGGIE TIPS category. It is an article on buying fresh beets. I really like beets but have only eaten canned beets. I've been tempted to purchase and cook fresh ones but I'm told they cook slowly so . . .

    Now is the time. I'm getting the fresh beets and the article on purchasing them will be very useful in selecting the perfect beets. Here's the link. Check it out.
