GIVEAWAY: Pillsbury Gift Pack--Winner Announced


I love MYBlogspark!  Yesterday the FedEx guy dropped off my gift box to try out (courtesy of Pillsbury). Inside I found a set of cute pizza plates, a FREE coupon for Pillsbury pizza crust, and a Hasbro board game "Pictureka.")

Needless to say, BOTH the kids and I were thrilled!

Pictureka! is called a "fast find it game" and reminds us all of those I SPY books where you have to find the tiny object in the photo. My son (8) LOVED it (he's an enthusiastic kid when it comes to board games). The entire family played it. It's a fast game, and there was a bit of challenge for everyone. All in all, I'd give it thumbs up. Plus, if your a Spanish-speaking family, all the game cards a bilingual!

The pizza plates hold one generous slice of pizza, so you'll need another dish if your serving up salad or any side dish. I've got the free coupon and will likely grab the thin crust version since I'm more a fan of the "New York" style pizza than deep dish (my hubby would disagree!).  

With Pillsbury Pizza Crust, you and your family can make your own fresh-out-of-the-oven pizza just the way you want it! Everyone can load their favorite toppings on to the ready-to-bake pizza crust and enjoy a fresh, hot pizza in minutes. You can personalize your meal even further by using the Classic Crust for a thicker, soft crust or the Thin Crust for a pizza that’s a bit crispier and just as delicious. So round up your little chefs and make their favorite night of the week even more memorable.

When we make the pizza, I will report back.

Meanwhile YOU can print a 40c off two pizza tubes from Pillsbury here. You can use up all the free Ragu pizza sauce we all have on hand from Jewel's Your Bucks deal!

Would you like to win a similar gift pack from Pillsbury/MyBlogspark? The pack contains:

1 coupon for a FREE container of Pillsbury pizza crust (Traditional or Thin Crust)
1 Pictureka! game from Hasbro
4 melamine (plastic) printed pizza plates.

To enter, leave me the answer to this question:
What is your favorite thing about family pizza night?
 
For an additional entry, leave an answer to this question:
What special memories do you have of pizza night from your childhood or what other activities you like to incorporate into family pizza night (i.e. games, movies, etc.)?

One winner will be drawn at random on Monday, May 3, 2010 at 5pm via randomnumber.org.


PLEASE leave me a way to contact you via email. If I cannot contact you (no email or an anonymous entry) I will draw another number. Sorry!


Note: the information and product was provided to me by Pillsbury through MyBlogSpark as part of the Pillsbury Pizza Crusts “Family Pizza Party” Spark

Favorite thing about family pizza night? Eating in the family room, (boys on a blanket to protect the carpet), watching a movie together, eating pizza. Half the time I make the pizza from scratch, the other times it's bought pizza.

Special memories or other activities: as I said- watching a movie together as a family- as a child, it would be watching the muppets together as a family.

Pick me, Marie, pick me!!!

Anne

Amy said...

I love quick and easy cleanup! And the fact that all of my kids eat it!! That rarely happens!

Anonymous said...

It is quick and easy and everyone get to make their own pizza. Just the way they like it!

As a kid, it was a treat for us to have pizza. We were very poor growing up! Heck, we were lucky, just to get a coloring book and crayons for Christmas! And by the way, the drawing says Monday -April 31th. Sorry to inform you that there is no April 31st!!!!

Marie said...

oops! Thanks for the heads up!

degood said...

My favorite thing is that each kid makes their own pizza so no complaining about yucky food b/c they pick their own toppings.

degood said...

If it is just me and the kids then I make it a family pizza and movie night. If my husband is home, then we like to make it a pizza and family game night. He is much better about referreeing when the kids fight about game rules and cheating.

What special memories do you have of pizza night from your childhood or what other activities you like to incorporate into family pizza night (i.e. games, movies, etc.)?

From my childhood, I remember my parents getting 2 pizzas, and one was an Everything Pizza, it was absolutely full of toppings. Lots of fun!

Best thing about pizza night is that mom gets to relax. Dad either orders it or makes it and then does clean up. It's a nice break.

Chip said...

I'm so old that I have a hard time remembering what we did as we grew up. I do remember having late night swims with my dad and I try to do that with my kids now. They think it is so fun to swim in the dark.

Favorite thing about family pizza night for me is the time spent with family. You cannot put a price on that. In todays technological age I think every family needs a night away from the computer, cell phones and texting.
Just good old fashioned bonding!

Bonus entry

We have pizza night every other Friday. My sister comes over with her kids, we eat pizza either I make or ordered and then we all sit and play a board game. Our most recent favorite has been scattergories. Its a hoot watching the kiddos and grownups connecting and laughing.

I have great memories of having homemade pizza every Sunday night during cooler weather as a kid. I still love to make it, but don't have the time to do it from scratch.

We usually watch a movie.

The best thing about pizza night is the food, which I make myself so it's just the way I want it.

When I was a kid the local pizza place was filled with people we knew so it was always like a party.

Anonymous said...

My favorite thing is that it's every Friday night! A tradition started by my newlywed parents, and carried on through my growing-up years. My husband and I decided it was a good one to keep up when we married! SO nice not to have to plan and prepare a dinner at the end of a busy week.

Thanks for the chance to win!

We like to have family pizza night on Fridays. Not every Friday but once or twice a month we do it. I love me some Pizza Hut pan pizza. My favorite thing about pizza night is that I don't have to hear a single word of complaint about what we are having for dinner from my 4 year old. I would like to try making our own pizza sometime though!

My favorite thing is that it is easy to cook. But beyond that I love the fact that when we have a pizza night, we get a movie that the whole family will enjoy. And even if it turns out to be a bomb, we have fun either loving it or making fun of it.

It brings us together as a family.

Hi, my favorite thing a bout pizza night, is just having a fun and relaxed time with my kids, usually eat in the living room and pop in a movie and just enjoying the time spent together with no interruptions or things to do.

As a child we always had pizza night on Friday nights, and we would have friends over or usually had ballgames to attend, it was sorta like our own little pep rally to get us going, such fun memories. As my children get older and more involved in sports I hope to carry this tradition on!!
