I have a neighbor that recently and unexpectedly lost his job, so I will probably Secret Santa the food.

If I were feeling nice I might give it to my MIL…but I’d probably keep it! I just had a baby, I need the easy meals!

Love the idea of a gift of stuff for a dinner! If I won this I’d give it to my sister, she loves kitchen things, and could really use a ‘free meal’. :)

I used to work at a Macaroni Grill and LOVE their food. I would give this to son and girlfriend for Christmas – they would so love it!!

As much as I’d love to give this to my son who just moved out, I know that he’d never cook it. So I’d probably cook it, split it into freezer packs for him and keep the strainer and spoon myself for all my hard work. (hee hee)

Colleen December 7, 2008 at 9:18 pm

We don’t have a Macaroni Grill around here so I would definitely keep it for myself. I have heard how good their food is so it would be nice to give it a try finally.

Melissa December 7, 2008 at 9:40 pm

I would keep it for myself also. My family loves pasta!

Reply

Ingrid December 7, 2008 at 9:59 pm

I would give to my daughter and her family and invite myself to dinner!

I just found out about a family (single mom, 8!! kids) that had a house fire and lost everything and need even the basics, so I would give it to them. And probably buy a second thing of macaroni cause they have tons of kids including 2 teenage boys.

Melinda December 7, 2008 at 11:35 pm

I would either give it to my little sister, because I haven’t gotten her a Christmas present yet, or to my step mother, who is nice as can be.

Adrienne December 7, 2008 at 11:35 pm

I’m not sure who I would give it to if I won it; I might decide to keep it for myself; will see if I win and when it would be delivered if it could be used as a gift this holiday season

thanks for doing this

I haven’t tried these yet, but I have seen them in the stores. I would be giving this prize pack to my Mother.

I am going to give this nice gift to the best cook I know. That would be my husband. His colander is a little shabby and he is not into shabby chic. His favorite color is red. So this would make a wonderful Christmas gift.

Daniel and Teresa December 8, 2008 at 8:08 am

I’d cook this for my family and maybe a few guests, and enjoy some “American” (though Italian-style) food. ;)

We love these at our house and our colander is pretty sad, so I would probably keep it, although I could possibly change my mind if the right idea comes up.

thanks for sharing

If I won I would give the colander to my mom – her kitchen is red, but I would keep the meal kit for my family. ;-)

With 2 hungry sons, a daughter-in-law and a grandaughter to feed I rely more and more on my crockpot. It is a large one and cheaper cuts of meat and fresh ingredients work well in it to make some great meals and to make some mixtures that just won’t work in an oven or on top of the stove. One thing that we eat a lot more of now is beans, they go so well with just about anything you care to mention, the French cassolette with duck is a breeze in the crock pot.

We’d use the dinner here for our 4 person family. A little goes a long way here at our hut just as it does with all the other frugal budgeted families out there. My hub is a sub-contractor and with the economy being as we all know it is, we’d use it all in a heartbeat since work has been lousy.
