Lawry's Giveaway

Have you seen my spice cupboard? It is overflowing with seasonings and spices because I love to make my family food with flavor! Needless to say I was very excited when MyBlogSpark contacted me about doing a Lawry's review and giveaway.

Did you know a recent Lawry’s survey found that your choice of flavor says more about you than you think? The nationwide poll looked at preferences for tart, spicy, sweet, and savory flavors and found that your choice can reveal some interesting aspects of your personality.

So what´s your flavor?
  • Joyous Joiners – Tart Flavors
    If you are one for tart flavors, you tend to be extremely happy overall, particularly with your family, finances, work/life balance and even your health. As a Joyous Joiners you are an extrovert who loves to entertain at home, find it very important to join in social events in your community and are active on the greatest number of social networking sites.
  • Self-Assured Adventurers – Spicy Flavors If your preference is for spicy flavors, consider yourself a confident, adventurous individual with a passion for travel and cooking. You are the biggest risk taker and although impulsive, you are not reckless – as a Self-Assured Adventurer you also tend to be resourceful, analytical, and most able to “look at the big picture.”
  • The Sweet Lifers – Sweet Flavors
    As a Sweet Lifer, home and family are close to your heart. You are the kindest and most loyal, although you probably wouldn´t admit that as you are also the most modest. As an individual that prefers sweeter flavors (honey and fruit-infused), you are influenced by your parents, enjoy family entertainment, and consider yourself spiritual.
  • The Conventionalists – Savory Flavors
    Your passion for savory flavors shows you have an enthusiasm for politics, enjoy camping and hiking and love outdoor barbeques and American cuisine. Along with the other Conventionalists, you tend to be more introverted than the rest of the groups and often describe yourself as a homebody.
I would have to say that my flavor is a mix between the spicy and sweet flavors.  What’s your flavor?

I have a Lawry´s “What´s Your Flavor” kit to giveaway that includes a marinating dish (10x15 pyrex!), a set of metal skewers, Lawry´s two new marinades, as well as a sample of each of the four new Seasoning Mixes and a bottle of Lawry´s Seasoned Salt.  I also got a kit to try out.  Lawry´s provided me with the free product, information, and gift pack through MyBlogSpark.

 This gift pack arrived in the mail just as I was trying to decide what's for dinner. I checked out the seasoning mixes and found I had all I needed to make the Chimichurri Burrito Casserole. It was so easy to make and was delicious!

Yum! I know you could use this kit to make your family a delicious dinner!
The kit includes the following new marinades and seasonings:

  • Szechuan Sweet & Sour BBQ gives meat a delicious sweet and sour flavor with a touch of Szechuan heat
  • Tuscan Sun-Dried Tomato includes extra virgin olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, sweet red bell peppers and the perfect blend of herbs
Seasoning Mixes
  • Asian Style Beef & Broccoli – This easy to prepare stir fry meal will remind your family of their favorite Asian restaurant. The dish combines beef, broccoli and seasonings with a hint of garlic. Serve it over rice and you have a complete, satisfying meal.
  • Chimichurri Burrito Casserole – Lawry´s gives the familiar Burrito casserole a new twist with this traditional Latin American sauce. With a few simple fresh ingredients, mealtime just got a lot more exciting.
  • Mediterranean Sundried Tomato & Garlic Chicken – Add a taste of the Mediterranean to your family´s casserole. This easy to bake casserole combines chicken, pasta, tomatoes and Feta cheese to easily make a flavorful meal any night of the week.
  • Tuscan Style Chicken Marsala with Garlic and Basil – Chicken Marsala is a restaurant favorite, but it might not make the menu at home. This effortless version comes together on your stovetop with just a few fresh ingredients. Flavorful garlic and basil gives this meal its own Tuscan flair, perfect for serving over pasta or rice.
