Chickin Scratch

Summer is almost here!  For us, that means the empty lot across the street will become our garden.  This is where my husband and children will spend most of their time.  I love that the girls get to participate in the whole process, starting with an empty field, watching the plants grow and eventually ending up on their dinner plates. 

In celebration of this change of seasons, I'm giving away a Chickin Feed Trackin' Mat and Primer.  These are also great tools to help teach kids about food, make them aware of what they eat and get them to participate in meeting their nutritional needs.    I bought them for Corrina and absolutely love them. 

Here's how you can win.  Leave a comment and tell me your favorite summertime dishes made with your fresh produce.  Tweet!  Say anything you want about the giveaway and The Drunken Housewife.  Lastly, you can share this giveaway with your friends on Facebook.  Remember, if you tweet or share on facebook, make sure you leave a comment letting me know that you did. 

You have until Monday May 30 at 11:59 pm CST to enter.  A winner will be chosen randomly.  Please be sure to leave your email to ensure that I will be able to contact you. 

Chickin Feed has no idea who I am.  I am not being compensated for this giveaway.  You can check out the Chickin Feed here.  You can also follow them on Twitter or like them on Facebook


  1. This is my favorite summertime recipe. I like it because the ingredients are few and can come straight from the garden. Also, these vegetables are ready for picking at around the same time. Finally, this side dish can be eaten with all sorts of meals: burgers, fried pork chops, cat fish fritters, baked chicken, ribs, steak, etc... My family has been eating this simple recipe for decades.

    Summer Salad

    2 tomatoes chunked
    2 peppers chunked
