The Crazy Suburban Mom: Old El Paso Giveaway and my head cold...

Old El Paso Giveaway and my head cold...

I've have a perfectly dreadful head cold. I haven't posted much and have commented less because it's hard to type and blow my nose at the same time. And now my voice is going. I dunno, I'm mostly a drag to be around. And I hear I'm snoring really, really loud. I guess 'cause of how congested I am.

But no one wants to hear that...

Oh wait. Just a bit more...

It has helped the diet along because food isn't all that appealing. Except chicken soup and spicy food which is driving my family to take-out because they like a change after days of, OH NO! NOT THAT AGAIN!

It seemed the perfect time (Follow me here, it makes sense.) to talk about the Old El Paso Green Chilies Big Game Giveaway I have for you.

Old El Paso

Are you with me so far? The
spicy food connection. Right?

OEP Green Chiles FINAL

My Blog Spark and Old El Paso sent me the product, prize pack, and giveaway like up in that picture there.... What a huge relief it was for the family to see. Something different. Something not chicken soup. They about wept. Yesterday I filled the middle with baked chips (low fat), salsa (ditto)... and one of the cans of the Old El Paso Chilies (ditto ditto ditto!)

OEP Green Chiles

And than watched The Jets lose.

Which was sort of anti-climatic compared to my snack which was um, climactic. I have another one of those gift packs for you if you're interested!

The nice thing about the Old El Paso chiles is they are low in calories and add lots of kicky ooomph to well, anything. They are also canned so I can just buy 'em and keep them 'till I need them instead of buying the fresh ones which I than promptly put in the bottom of my veggie drawer and forget about until they form a puddle of primordial ooze at the bottom and I have to remove by pouring rather that picking up. And don't even try to tell me you have no idea what I'm talking about. There is no one on the planet who hasn't had to remove their vegetable bin FROM their fridge to pour out what used to be a bunch of carrots and if you try and tell me there is I will answer,

I think not.

Today I made chicken soup for the skatey-eighth billionth time this week and used more of my zingy chilies as a garnish for my soup because, A. You can't have too much chicken soup when you have a cold. B. Soup with chilies floating on top is so nice when I can't taste a darned thing because those things I can taste and C. It just looks so pretty.


So c'mon... Don't you want a Big Game pack too?
Or a coupon now (here)

I asked Ginger and Taz who wanted to monitor the one entry per person thing for the giveaway and this was the answer.

Taz it is!

Disclosure: You don't actually think a company would pay me to talk about blowing my nose in the same post I talked about their food do you? Or think college educated adverting people would write any of that as ad copy - Darrin Stevens sure never did on Bewitched. And I wouldn't be surprised if they make me give back the Big Game Pack they sent me for doing it. Just saying.
