Up until now I've been avoiding the giveaways. I don't think there's anything wrong with hosting them, I just didn't start blogging to enter the modern version of sweepstakes, which was my first impression. Now that I've taken a closer look, I may have changed my mind. They are not giving away plastic swords. I'm not receiving a genuine CZ diamond along with a special offer to have it set in a beautiful ring for the ultra low price of $499.99 if I act within the next thirty days. They are giving away some nice merchandise.
I've been trying to teach myself to cook recently and trying out new recipes. Nobody sells exactly half a pound of ground turkey or 6 ounces of dried cranberries. I've been guesstimating. I've been thinking about buying one of those kitchen scales, but didn't want to spend the money because I was debating if I really need it. Then I stumbled upon Blueviolet's EatSmart Precision Pro Kitchen Scale Review and Giveaway. I believe I might like to own something like that, especially if I don't have to pay for it.
I follow the if-I'm-hungry-I'm-gonna-eat-dammit diet plan so I won't be using it to count calories, but for those of you that do it looks like this scale could be of help. Head on over to Blueviolet's to read the review, enter the contest, or purchase the scale from Amazon for $25.
