Grocery Giveaway!

Grocery Giveaway!

We’re sad that summer is winding down but it was so jam-packed with fun that we really can’t complain. For us, there were lots of small and big trips, lots of swimming, barbecuing and picnic-ing. We were also lucky to partner with Metro groceries, doing events and cooking demonstrations on tv. We love Metro’s philosophy of offering fresh, local produce. It’s important for us to know where our families’ food comes from and Metro makes that easy.

Did you catch us on CityLine this morning? We whipped up some great make-ahead recipes that are going to save you once school gets rolling. And as a bonus to you, lovely readers, we’re giving away a $250 Metro gift card! Leave a comment and let us know what you’ll be cooking in September and you could win! Follow us on Pinterest for more chances to win.
