Last year during NaBloPoMo I did a little giveaway just before Thanksgiving. It’s fun to reward you for being my readers, even in small ways. In the future I do hope to offer up more fun stuff, but right now that hefty $3 a month I’m raking in from ad revenue generally goes towards food.
Not today! It’s the holiday season — a time of family, friends, festivities, and food. Since I can’t invite you all over for a little shindig chez moi, I decided to give a gift that keeps on giving. As a bonus, when my posting frequency goes way down after 30 days of daily updates, you’ll have a little supplemental reading to tide you over:
I’m hooking someone up with a one-year subscription to Vegetarian Times magazine.
One year is 9 issues, each containing 20-30 tasty vegetarian and vegan recipes. You can check out tons of other recipes and such at their website if you’re not convinced.
For non-vegetarians it could still offer inspiration, or at least some options when vegetarian friends come over for dinner. Or maybe you could start a Meatless Monday tradition at your house — save money (and fossil fuels) by eating less meat.
A small thing that endears the periodical to me is that I don’t hate their ads. Unlike some other magazines to which I subscribe which shall remain nameless and often have nutrition advice on one page and canned soup and weight-loss medications on the facing page, their advertisements walk their talk. I sometimes find the aforementioned juxtaposition a bit jarring, so it’s a nice change.
I often find inspiration from non-vegetarian cooking magazines, so I can’t imagine the reverse isn’t true. If not, you’re not out any money anyway!
Just leave a comment below with a link to a favorite meatless dish. If I’m going to send you a year’s supply of recipes, I might as well collect a few good ones in the process.
Contest is now closed! Thanks for playing!
Winner will be chosen by the magical random number generator and announced on Monday, November 15.
Fine print: I’m shelling out this prize from my own pocket and the goodness of my heart since I was renewing my own subscription anyway.
