It's Giveaway Time--A Great Cuisinart Blender

So ya'll know we're moving to Utah this summer. And ya'll might or might not know--we've already bought a house! Aaahh, I know. But we are so excited to be in our new home. Our house has a fabulous kitchen (actually it has two full kitchens). But the main kitchen is big and amazing. It has a great, long island in the middle with bar stools on one side. Two of the bar stools actually have broken backs.

We will be fixing those soon after moving in. I'm really happy that I was recently contacted by CSN Stores and asked if I wanted to do a giveaway for something from one of their sites. CSN Stores is one of the top 3 online US retailers of home and office goods. They sell furniture, home decor, toys, pet supplies, and even more, but one of my favorites is the cookware!

I don't know if you know how much we love smoothies here at our house, but we do. Our number one ingredient of choice for smoothies is bananas. If you have bananas and a little milk, maybe some yogurt, and any other fruit, you can make a delicious smoothie. One of our favorites is banana, plain yogurt, some peanut butter and some chocolate protein powder--YUM! Sam loves it so much that sometimes he'll out of the blue walk in to the kitchen and head for the cupboard where the blender is and say "Nanny drink." Oh the smoothies we could make if we had a better blender! I had a pretty nice one, but the glass pitcher fell from about 4 inches off the floor and it shattered a few years back. So just to be frugal, I bought a really cheap one. It tries hard, but really, I can't believe we're still using it after more than five years. If you blend with it too long (and by too long, I mean not very long) it starts to have that burned motor smell.

Well, out of the kindness of my heart ;) and the extreme generosity of CSN Stores I would love to give one lucky reader a chance to win a great new blender! You must try that banana smoothie (oh and the best way is to use frozen bananas, I love taking bananas and cutting them in to chunks and freezing them in zipper lock bags)!
