Legume Giveaway!

Why should the big name bloggers have all the fun?  As anyone reading Eating the Scenery knows, I no longer eat legumes.  But my CSA boxes have contained two lovely bags of them lately ... chickpeas and white lentils.

So ... why not a giveaway!

I assume that at least one or six Loyal Readers of Eating the Scenery do eat legumes.  Despite the strident tone of my sidebars (need to work on that), I try very hard not to be the Food Police.  Decisions about food are very personal.  Perhaps you eat legumes.  I have some I don't need.   Giving them to you doesn't mean I don't care about you.  I do hope you'll give some thought to preparing them, though.

That said, no hype, pressure or hypocrisy are involved when I say you won't find beautiful lentils and chickpeas like this anywhere but here ... southeast Washington State, the Fertile Crescent and Legume Capital of the Western World.  (Wait ... that might be hype.) 

Best of all, you don't have to like me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter to enter!  (Heaven forfend.  This blogger is too busy in the kitchen to bother with most social media.)

Just be the first person to comment on this post, say that you want the legumes, and I'll either ship these puppies to you or bring them to you, depending on where you live.

I'll reply to the winning post.  If I don't know you, I'll ask you to e-mail your address to me at

If no one comments, I'll be really embarrassed, and perhaps give up blogging entirely. 


  1. I would love your legumes!! That would be such a treat. THANK YOU for the give away!

  2. Dang! Congratulations Caleefille!

  3. Thanks, dear readers! Caleefille is local, so we're going to arrange the legume drop when the roads are less icy!

  4. I am pleased to report that the legumes are now in possession of our winner! This is fun ...
