Progresso Panko/Broth Giveaway

"If you’ve never cooked with panko before, now is your chance because it’s never been easier. Progresso’s panko is a flaky bread crumb which adds a light crispiness to your food and is available in two flavors, plain and Italian.

Progresso broths are 100% natural and use high quality ingredients to achieve a great homemade taste. They are fat free, gluten free, contain no preservatives, no added MSG and no artificial flavors. Progresso broth is available in chicken and reduced sodium chicken and beef flavors."

A few days ago, Progresso sent me their Panko and Broth prize pack through MyBlogSpark™ to try out and share my experience with you.
Progresso sponsored this giveaway and one of my lucky readers will win this prize pack!

Also available on is a coupon for $1.00*off any two Progresso products. At you’ll find a coupon for $.50 off a package of broth.

I have tried Panko in the past, and I cannot say enough great things about it. Progresso did a great job on this product! If you are a fan of breadcrumbs, Panko will be your new best friend!
I have used Panko on tilapia, founder, pork cutlets, pork's awesome!

To enter, please leave a comment (include your email address), sharing your tips on using Panko or Broth.

Dirty dozen...

With our three roosters gone, and possibly a few more lurking about, with us not knowing who they are yet, my husband decides to buy MORE HENS! I swear, that man just can't sit still.

So off he goes, and buys 8 hens from a lady that "dresses" her own birds. Yup, she actually kills them, plucks them, etc....all on her own. Ugh! I could never!

Anyways, these birds are so friendly you can just walk up to them and pet them! Really cute!

Next thing you know, we wake up to TEN EGGS in one morning! Woo Hoo! We now have two customers for our eggs, with a few more to come. Very very exciting times at Eggville!

I posted an ad on Craigslist, because I just don't think my fridge can hold all these eggs AND my regular stuff. I am hoping we get a lot more customers soon, or I'll start making quiches and fritattas, and Lord knows what else, every day of the week! hahaha!

Bye bye roosters...

Well, it seems that instead of 1, we had 3 roosters, there could be more, but these were easily recognizable roosters.
Only one of them was crowing, and at first, he wasn't that loud or consistent, but over the past week he has found his voice and was an "in-full-swing" Rooster! hahaha
Every morning, around 6:30, he would start crowing. We heard him with the windows closed!
Kevin asked the neighbors if they were bothered by him, but no one really seemed to have an issue...except Kevin!

So...we posted an ad on Craigslist and within a DAY, someone responded and came by to pick them up. The man was really nice and took all three roosters, plus, he bought a dozen eggs from us :) Our first sale!!!

I will miss the rooster(s). It was kind of cool waking up to the sound of him crowing. I felt like I was really living on a farm.

Bye roosters...I hope you get to crow to your heart's content in your new home!
