Green Giant Contest and a Few Bloopers

Fun Stuff and Humorous Stories by C.L. (Cindy) Beck

What's more exciting at a blog than a contest with cool prizes, followed by bloopers that give a good laugh? Well, I asked Corky Porky Pie, the dog, and he didn't think there could be much that would be more fun! Unless, of course, it involved a squeaky toy.

Today I'm posting a review for Green Giant® Broccoli & Cheese Sauce, along with a contest. And I wouldn't want anyone to be suffering from humor withdrawal, so I'll place a short funny below the contest info. That should make everyone happy, right?

My Opinion:
I love broccoli, especially when it's swimming in cheese, and so I was excited about the prospect of trying out Green Giant's Broccoli & Cheese Sauce. One thing I loved right off the bat was that I could microwave the pouch, and it only took about 5 minutes to cook. There was plenty of cheese sauce, which was great, and I intended to eat half the veggies for my lunch and save the rest for my hubby's supper. However, (bad, bad, me) I liked it so much that I ate the whole thing.

(I'm sorry, Sweetie, but on the upside ... I did have two servings of vegetables for lunch. And you do want me eating my daily requirement of veggies, right? :)

I'm grateful for Green Giant, otherwise my youngest wouldn't eat any veggies at all!
Most of all, I liked the bloopers. Thanks for the laughs Cindy!

I also love broccoli and the cheesier the better. :) You could have said that Corky Porkie Pie helped you finish it. He needs his veggies too. lol Good luck everyone.

I love cooked veggies, smothered with cheese and butter with a tiny sprinkle of salt! Go Green Giant! Ok, enough about veggies, the bloopers were fabulous and hilarious. I'll certainly have to remember those ones!!

Hey, Cindy!
I love Green Giant frozen veggies... especially the broccolli and cheese sauce... I put it over a baked potato (with just a "few" bacon bits) and it's a great quick meal for me:) Sure hope I win!!
