And I’m back!
Welcome welcome to the new & improved Tenacious Tinkering. I hadn’t mentioned this before but last month, I won 1 year free web hosting. Proof? Here:
I took it as a sign. I had been thinking hard for the past few months wondering which direction I should take this blog towards. Will it remain a mere hobby or do I want to get serious? I guess you know now! It wasn’t easy figuring things out but with the help of my lovely designer and the friendly folks at Web Hosting Hub, I somehow managed. Yay!
To celebrate this new phase of Tenacious Tinkering blog experience, I decided to spread the joy with a little giveaway. 🙂 And an international one too! More about it after today’s recipe.
So you know we love roasted potatoes over here. As evidenced from here, here & here. I keep trying to find new ways to enjoy our potatoes. With some dill I have in the fridge, I thought it might be a good idea to mix it with some roasted potatoes and I wasn’t wrong.
When I first got my fine grater about over a year ago, I thought it was just one of those luxurious kitchen tools that I might use, like, once a month when I remember I have it somewhere. You know, like the melon baller or anything in this article (banana slicer? Really?!?).
But before I realize it myself, I started grabbing my Tescoma fine grater a couple times a week for cheese, lemon zest, nutmeg grating… it became an indispensable tool in my kitchen. And I think you should have one too! While I would love to giveaway the same Tescoma grater that I use, I found that they do not distribute as widely as Microplane.
So one reader of this Tenacious Tinkering giveaway is going to win a Flaming Red Microplane Classic Zester**!
All you have to do is to leave a comment on this post telling me your favourite kitchen tool, animal, weather, or just say hi. You have until 11:59pm (UCT+8) 21st August, 2013 to do so. A winner will be chosen by Random.org & announced on 23th August, 2013.
All the best!
**Disclaimer: One comment per email address, please. If for some reason the grater cannot be delivered/shipped to your country or location, you will received an Amazon gift card worth USD20 instead. Also, this giveaway is sponsored solely by yours truly. 🙂 Love you!
“The LORD possessed Me in the beginning of His way, before His works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.” (Proverbs 8:22-24)
