In Mourning...and a GIVEAWAY!!:)

So I really needed something to cheer me up after what happened yesterday!!  What you may ask??  (for those of you who are not connected with facebook). 
THIS!!!
I know it's kind of hard to tell what in the world that is...let me enlighten you!  It's my bosch mixer bowl!!  It met it's demise at around 4:55 yesterday afternoon.  I had some chicken on the stove top boiling for dinner.  It was for the most wonderful and delightful Creamy Chicken Taquitos!  Oh how I love those!! 

Anyway, back to the story.  I had one final piano lesson for the year that was just ending when I smelled something a little suspect...just smelled like something was burning...so I figured I'd let the water boil out & was burning my chicken so I asked Tony to go check it out for me. 

His reply, "Um...it's not the chicken.  You better come look at this." 

So I sent my student on his way and made my way to the kitchen.  By this time the entire downstairs was filled with smoke & it stunk to HIGH HEAVEN!!

When I realized what had happened I just stood there dumbfounded, staring at the bowl and the plastic that was still bubbling/burning on the stove top. 

This is when the kid's starting filing into the kitchen.  "What's that smell?", "That smells awful!", "Why is there all this smoke?"  I have to say I kept it together pretty well...don't know how, but I did & I'm so glad.  Rhett (my 4 year old) fessed up right away.  He was trying to sneak into a cupcake that was sitting towards the back of the counter (I put them back there so he couldn't get into them...I really should know better!!:)), but the bowl was in the way so he pushed it to the side so he could reach.  Little did he know the side was the hot stove top.  He pushed it right along side the boiling chicken & the rest is history!!

On a good note though...dinner was still fabulous!!:)  Creamy Chicken Taquitos with yummy guacamole & the best Spanish Rice!!  And I have to say...Tony has always been the Spanish Rice maker in our family.  I'll make it if he's not around, but when he is I make him do it.  And...it was the best one yet!!  The rice texture was just perfect! 

It helped ease the pain.......some!:)

Anyway, to make me feel better I figured we'd do a fabulous giveaway today!!  Giveaways always lift my spirits!!:)  Here's what you can win:
I absolutely LOVE everything seen here!!  The winner will receive:

#1.  Large Round Pizza Stone

The benefits of a pizza stone:
•Evenly distributes heat and draws moisture away from the surface
•Retains heat, so your just-out-of-the-oven foods stay hot longer
•Virtually nonporous, so it doesn't retain oils, odors or flavors
•Microwave-, freezer-, and conventional and convection oven-safe

We absolutely LOVE ours...it has been used on many an occasion!!

#2. Large Metal Rack

 This sturdy metal rack helps you move the Large Round Stone from the oven to the table.


#3.  Pizza Cutter

I love that it's BIG...for those pizza's that have TONS of toppings on them (the kind I like!)  And it's dishwasher safe!!  Gotta love that!

#4.  Deluxe Cheese Grater 

 This is perfect for some fresh parmesan cheese on top of your pizza (or pasta!).  It will also grate chocolate...YUM...and nuts!  And it is also dishwasher safe!!

All item are from Pampered Chef...I know...I'm a little addicted to their stuff!!:)
