Special Gift Offer

Okay all of you Foodie Fans out there, are you ready for something completely different from this site? 

No?  Me either, just kidding........ I have a contest for ya'll to check out.  I will be presenting a randomly chosen blog buddy to receive a $20 gift code for an online store called CSN Online. 

All I ask you to do is to click on this link after leaving me a comment that you have done so.  I will be checking with the store as I'm pretty sure  that they can track this kind of thing.  So if you leave me a comment that you clicked it and they say no, well, no entry.  I know ya'll wouldn't do that to the cowboy chef/poet, but just in case I thought I'd better put the warning in there.

So the place to go do some window shopping or real shopping is a place that has everything from pendant lighting to fantastic cookware.

Check it out, leave a comment here and get entered to receive a $20 gift code to be used at their online store.

Shiny! Funny enough, I'm actually looking for new lighting for my dining room right now, so I really appreciated the link. I may not necessarily buy from them, but I'm getting some great ideas.
