Guess I'm NOT a country girl...

These are tomato hornworms. Over 3 inches long. They ate my tomato plants. And pooped. A lot. I looked them up and found that they turn into something called HAWK moths (!), with a wingspan of 5 inches (!!). Holy Mother of God. (Fortunately, The Hubby saved me from certain death by tossing them far, far away. I hope.)

Another MyBlogSpark Giveaway: $25 Walmart Gift Card!

Yay! I get to host another giveaway!

Thanks to General Mills through MyBlogSpark, I received a $25 Walmart gift card, and can host a giveaway for a second one (which will be sent directly from MyBlogSpark once I draw the winner). This is to drum up support for the Box Tops for Education program offered by General Mills.

"Throughout the month of August, you can find 4 box tops on participating brands at Walmart, among them Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, Pillsbury Toaster Strudel pastries, Trix Yogurt, Hamburger Helper skillet meals, Totino’s Pizza Rolls snacks, Nature Valley Granola Bars and Betty Crocker Fruit Roll-Ups snacks. Be sure to keep an eye out for Box Tops on great products from Kleenex, Ziploc, and Hefty too!"

To enter, leave a comment below stating which General Mills Box Tops item is your favorite! Deadline for entries is the end of Sunday, August 29th. I'll randomly draw the winner (U.S. only, please!) and notify them on Monday, since I need to submit the winner's shipping address by August 31st ;-)

EDIT: CONGRATS to Wendy in KY, your comment has been drawn as the winner! Please contact me with your shipping address, and Happy Shopping!

Arancini? Gesundheit!

Yummy rice balls: day old, cooked jasmine rice, parmesan, Italian seasoning, garlic, salt and pepper, and a little beaten egg. Mix, shape into balls, put a cheese cube inside, roll in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs, deep fry until golden. Serve with Marinara sauce (hey, the tomatoes in the sauce make it practically health food!) =D
