Del Monte's Add Some Garden Contest


I am a sucker for fruits and veggies and I love adding them to any dish to bring some yummy flavor.

Also, I sneak them in so my picky kid's will eat them.

Del Monte is a great choice for my family. They are convenient and always yummy plus they have essentially the nutrients that fresh veggies have (they last longer for me too).

The "Add Some Garden" Facebook contest is in full swing and you can enter (I just did and it's easy peasy). All you need to do is visit the Del Monte FB page (between November 5th and February 4th) to win some great prizes (including appliances and William Sonoma gift cards!) 

There are five phases of the contest where you go on the FB page and tell them what fruit or veggie you would add to your recipe. Every two weeks, the item changes. 

The items are according to a schedule and that schedule is:
    • Green beans (November 5- November 18)
    • Corn (November 19- December 2)
    • Tomatoes (December 3- December 16)
    • Peaches (January 7- January 20)
    • Pears (January 21- February 3)
After you've entered, fans of the FB page will have five days to submit and then consumers vote for the best and at the end of the contest, the top five winning recipe tips will be up for the Grand Prize, a culinary travel adventure valued at 10K! 

This week was corn, so my tip was to add it to a Mexican casserole dish with chicken and peppers and tons of Mexican cheese. The corn would add a yummy crunch to the meal plus help out the healthy factor. 

To celebrate, I'm giving away a Del Monte gift pack so you can add in the yummy (and nutritious!) veggies and fruits to your favorite dishes. 

The gift pack contains: 
  • Five (5) Del Monte canned varieties- Green Beans (1), Corn (1), Diced Tomatoes (1), Peaches (1), and Pears (1)
  • $25 Visa gift card


All I need you to do to enter to win is tell me what your favorite Del Monte fruit or veggie is.

Easy, huh?

Comment away! 

This contest will run for two weeks and end on December 5th, 2012. 

Good Luck!!
