One Hot Giveaway

As you probably know, our kitchen is currently comprised of a fridge and a toaster oven in the corner of our living room. We've collected some other kitchen components along the way (a Viking rangetop, some cool industrial pendant lights, etc.) for when our real kitchen takes shape. But for now, our trusty Black & Decker toaster oven keeps us from going hungry.

For that reason, the kind folks at CSN Stores are giving away one of these sleek and trusty toasting machines to one of my lucky readers! Trust me when I say that this might be one of the most useful blog giveaways of all time.

This is kind of an extra special giveaway too, because it's like winning your own version of the Thirtyeight20 kitchen! How glamorous!

Want one of your own? Here's how to enter:
  1. Leave a comment with your first name, and (optional) tell me about the funniest or oddest thing you've eaten in desperation when your cupboards were bare.
  2. Get a second entry by becoming a new follower. (Click the "Follow" button at right.) If you're already a follower, you can enter a second time as well because you're awesome.
  3. Get a third entry by posting about this giveaway on your own blog or Facebook, and then telling me about it.
One lucky winner will receive the Black & Decker Classic Toast-R-Oven. You can't go wrong with a classic, especially when it has a cutely spelled name. (And if you win and don't particularly need a toaster oven, you can always donate it or give it away like a good citizen.)

The deadline for entry is 8:00am EST on Monday, June 21st. My goal is, ummm, 1.2 million entries (which is pretty lofty...) so please be sure to tell your friends so they can enter too. I will select the winner using Random.org, so be sure to check back next Monday to see who won!

Good luck!

EDIT: You must have a US shipping address to win.

    The oddest thing I've eaten is a bag of airline peanuts that I randomly found in the bottom of my purse.

    hm, usually when I have bare cupboards I go with the cereal as dinner method. So nothing too odd there, just sad.

  5. i recently found an opened sleeve of ritz crackers in the cupboard, without knowing/caring how old they were. (i had no recollection of opening them...) i put one in my mouth, and it immediately disintegrated - it literally turned into sawdust. gross.

  25. Your house is coming along nicely! It looks lovely. The oddest thing I ever ate was for breakfast one day - it was All-Bran with about a 1/2 cup of hot picante salsa on it topped off with a carton of plain yogurt. I actually liked it enough to have it again a few times. (My kids love telling this story as it catalogs me as being "weird".)

  26. Remember as a child sitting down with Dad and eating white bread, bananas and sugar doused with milk. He called it "soppy"-- that's how it was pronounced, not sure of actual spelling. Said it was something he ate in the army.

    When desperate for something sweet ("desperate" being the operative word), I grab a glass of milk and add a tsp each of sugar and vanilla and freeze the concoction,
