The Best Giveaway Yet!!!!!

74 comments:


So here it is...
Time for a great giveaway!!

Just a few of my favorite things from the locals here in the Ojai Valley and my way of saying

 "thankyou" 

to everyone who follows along and have become my "blogging family"
From the Ojai Valley Food Company, their organic ginger citrus grill sauce.
Absolutely the best on chicken and fish, but you can use it on sweet corn and even fruit!
From Westridge market:  Tomato, apple and raisin cheese topper!
Pour this over brie or buratta and serve with crackers and apple slices...so yummy.
Locally pressed olive oil with lemon.
Really smooth and fragrant, pairs with balsamic vinegar and french bread perfectly.
The Ranch House Restaurant herb salt.  
A favorite of locals, this spice can be used for anything.  I actually thought this had parmesan in it at first but it doesn't.  
It is really a great all around seasoned salt, really nice and herby....is that a word?
Westridge market Jamaican jerk seasoning.
Westridge grills tritips and chicken over mesquite in their parking lot on the weekends and they use this spice rub!  
 Amazing.

And finally, I will include some fresh lavender from my garden, as fresh as it gets and so fragrant it will knock your socks off!

So here we go

Leave a comment on this post 
I will choose a winner using a random number counter

Entries will be included up until 12:00 noon on  Sunday, August 8th 
with the winner announced at 1:00 PM

Good luck....can't wait to pick a winner
