This is very cool and I am so exicted to have something to giveaway to one of you. For free! A very nice PR lady for Reynolds contacted me after I wrote about the Reynolds Handi-Vac and she has generously agreed to a giveaway contest. So, in the tradition of giveaway contests on the internet I will use a Random Number Generator to pick the winner. To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me what you would seal with your Handi-Vac and make sure you enter a valid e-mail address so I can contact you for a mailing address (the Handi-Vac will be shipped directly to you so I don’t have to repackage and mail it out!). I will leave the contest open until 11:59pm December 3rd, 2007.
In case you’re curious, we’ve been sealing things up left and right and I’m having so much fun with it. The brussel sprouts I sealed up (in a washed and dried, reused gallon bag) are still looking mighty fine and green and I’ll probably cook them up this week – either roasted or in this pasta dish I just read about. I’ve got flap steak and filets in separate bags in the freezer and my green onions are still fresh and happy (I know, you’d think we could go through a bunch of green onions faster). I sealed up that apple cake and it didn’t get too squished and I didn’t have to worry about it drying out or spoiling too quickly. I think I’m going to start experimenting with lettuce, as that’s something we really don’t go through but we always get it in our CSA box. We still use the reuseable Gladware/Ziploc containers, but that’s usually for leftovers we’re going to eat within a few days.
So, to recap, leave a comment below before December 3rd to win a free Handi-Vac. If you don’t win, be sure to go out and buy one (c’mon, they’re under $10!) because I’m sure you’ll find a use for it and I think you’ll also have fun watching the air get sucked out of the bag.
