A Slicer, A Dicer, A GiveAway Enticer!


See who won HERE!

Have you ever used a mandolin slicer?

NO?  You must be kidding. Well, let me tell you, it makes quick work of slicing and dicing.

Yesterday, I decided it was the perfect day for a big ol pot of vegetable soup. The way my grandmother always made it. So, I pulled out the OXO Good Grips V-blade Mandolin Slicer and got to business. First, I diced up some carrots.

Then some celery. And potatoes. And onions.

All done on the Good Grips V-blade Mandolin Slicer . You couldn’t ask for a better thing to have in your kitchen for slicing tomatoes or onions. For making homemade fries. For doing crinkle cut carrots. It is so easy to use and such a time saver! I can’t imagine any kitchen being without one.

And Voila! Soup! And this soup…soup that you have to eat with cornbread. That is the only way I have ever had it. I do not eat crackers in soup, although Mr. Technosavy and Smartypants…they like crackers, Me and The Princess we could never eat it with crackers. So un-Southern. Is that a word? Ummm, well, it is now if it wasn’t before.

Here is your chance to win a Good Grips V-blade Mandolin Slicer for yourself, or a loved one, cause this would make a great Christmas gift for someone. The great folks at OXO want you to be able to slice and dice with ease. Here is what their website says:
