Dear readers, I’m always so surprised that anyone visits my little blog, and I want to thank you with my first giveaway. I’ve known from day one that I want to share some of my favorite things with you, whether that’s recipes or products. This spring I was privileged enough to win two beautiful pottery bowls from Polly of Polly’s Path. It’s time for me to pay it forward.
My first giveaway is a 2-quart cast-iron camping Dutch oven from Lodge. (Yes, I picked it up when I visited the outlet this summer.) You don’t have to camp to use a Dutch oven like this one. (Yours will be new!) You can still use it in your oven, in your backyard, or even on the stove top, depending on the type of burners you have. If you’re not sure how to use a Dutch oven with coals, check out all of these great ideas from a recent Dutch oven cook-off. (You can even roast a whole chicken in a larger Dutch oven outside.) The Dutch oven I’m giving away is great for a family meal. It’s ideal for two chicken thighs and two chicken drumsticks with a smattering of veggies. It’ll roast a whole chicken breast, as long as its not too big. The Dutch oven works as a casserole for side dishes and desserts. It’s perfect for your next camping trip or everyday cooking outside or inside. And if you take care of it, you can pass it on for generations to come.
How do you win these gifts? Tell me here in the comments section that you’re interested, and let me and other readers know how you’d like to use the Dutch oven–inside, outside, on your annual canoe trip, as a gift, as a door stop. You’ll automatically get an entry that way. You can get a second entry by blogging about this giveaway on your own blog. Be sure to post a second time here with a link to your blog entry. That way, all of the readers at Ozark Homesteader will get to learn about your blog too, and I can use the posts in the drawing. Tweets get you credit too, as long as the tweets show up on WordPress’s tweet counter and you post here. 🙂
Here’s the fine print: Entries close at midnight central time on Sunday, September 26, 2010; late entries will not be counted. Entries are limited to US and Canadian addresses. Entries will be selected at random. I’ll post the winner by Sunday, October 3, 2010, if not sooner. And, no, there’s no catch.
Chances to enter the giveaway are now closed. You can read about the winner here.
If you missed this one, though, check back as the holiday season approaches. The Homestead’s next giveaway may help you decorate for the holidays and will help you care for your hearth through the winter.
