Presents for You on My Birthday

UPDATE - JAN 14/11
This contest has now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered, and welcome, new subscribers! Scroll down to the prize descriptions to see the winners. Winners, please e-mail me (see the About page) so we can work out getting you your prizes.

It was two years ago today, to the minute, that I made the very first post on My Daily Bread. While I've fallen down on my goal to post something every day, including a three-month dry spell, I think I've gotten into a good rhythm with it.

To help celebrate my two years of blogging about what I eat, I've got a contest for you with some fabulous prizes. I'll be giving away a first and second prize to two of you lucky folks who do the following.

  1. Subscribe from the sidebar, using a reader (Get Fed), by e-mail (Feed Bag), or become a Follower.
  2. Make a comment below.
  3. Help spread the word about this contest using the Facebook or Twitter "Share" links at the bottom of this post. If you don't use Facebook or Twitter, let me know you've shared it by e-mail.

The deadline for entry is midnight EST, January 14, 2011, when I'll randomly draw two names from eligible entries. Apologies to any international readers, but this one's limited to Canadians. Thank you all for reading, including whomever's reading from Russia! I'll try and keep it interesting in year 3. :)

2nd Prize - 1 Lesley Stowe Fine Foods Prize Pack

Winner: Sergio Elmir

Value: Approx. $65 CAD
At Lesley Stowe Fine Foods we have been creating and sharing delicious food from our kitchen for more than 20 years. Our fabulous artisan raincoast crisps are all natural and made with care.

We know the only way to make a great product is to bake it in small batches from scratch using the finest-quality ingredients.

Our signature crisps are great to nibble on their own, but they really shine when topped with your favourite dip, cheese, pâté or antipasto.

Found in stores with other fine entertaining goods, these crisps are truly in a class of their own. We are addicted to this yummy snack food and are sure that you will be too.
The prize pack contains:

Good luck, everyone!
