Graziano Booty

Time to spread some loot, up for grabs are 5 bags of Graziano Brothers Italian seasoning, hand-mixed at a local 100-year-old family grocer.  This stuff's delicious, with a slightly spicy pepper-flake kick.  I use it in my lasagnas and other yummy Sicilian bakes.

Leave a comment below to enter, I'll draw five random names next Monday, October 1 at 7:00 pm.  One entry per person, I'll ship for free to the lower 48, anonymous entries will be ignored.





Good luck!

    Usually anything with "spicy" in the description doesn't go over well at our house, but you've described this stuff so well that I would love to try it. Plus something local and not from Costco? Even better. :-) Thanks for doing a giveaway! megseven AT yahoo

  14. Aarrgghhh! I just hit Alice Springs after being 'out of the loop' for 4 days & opened my internet to this little teaser! So wish I could live in the lower 48 right now....however, the road trip is a decent trade off. Having a great time, will be sure to send you a pic of the big rock.

  75. Love your blog. I find it refreshing to read from a male's perspective, as so many of the blogs that I gravitate towards are by females. By the way, you are doing a wonderful job raising your little (or not so little anymore) girl. :)
