I am not usually a winner. Most times I take chances just to help the organization running the event. Imagine my surprise last evening when I received notification that I had won not one but two prizes.
Let me go back a few weeks to how it all began. A friend of mine invited me to join a virtual Pampered Chef party that she would be hosting. Her daughter-in-law would be running it.
Why she invited me to join I don’t know. After all, it is not like I enjoy cooking or baking. It isn’t like I don’t already have a few Pampered Chef products. Anyway, I decided to join.
Throughout the weeks of the party I did end up ordering a few items that I wanted. One item I ordered was a large mix and scoop. I have one that I have been using for years, but it is showing its age. There is nothing really wrong with it, but I felt like I could use another.
I also ordered a scooper strainer. This will be great for getting shrimp or tortellini out of the pot when it is cooked.
The third thing I ordered was a cake tester. I know. Why not just use a toothpick or the spring back when touched test. Sometimes, especially with a tube or Bundt pan, those tests aren’t always accurate for me.
The last thing I ordered was a lazy susan. The description suggests using it as a way of serving cheeses. Me, I plan to use it to make icing cakes easier.
Because my order reached a certain amount, I also got a free gift, a small mixing/serving bowl.
Because I ordered some items my name would be placed in the pot for a chance to win some end of the party prizes. It would be nice to win, but I wasn’t going to hold my breath.
Throughout the party there were games where if you played you got your name added an additional time for the end of party prize drawings. I played a few and for each one I played I got another entry for the drawing. I even won one and that got me five extra entries.
The drawing was held last night I was notified that I won two prizes: a parking knife and toaster tongs.
I look forward to receiving a package with my prizes whenever it gets here. I might just have to celebrate by cooking or baking something using my new Pampered Chef items.
