First, let’s get the winners from this week out of the way. Plenty of you could see the appeal of the LensAlert system for keeping track of contact lens wear, and the random number generator has selected our two winners. They are: Thorny (commenter 30) and Lucinda (commenter 25). Congratulations, winners—please check your email!

Big thanks, as always, to everyone who played, and special thanks to our friends at LensAlert for donating the prizes.

As for this weekend, well, you know I’m all about food (ahem). So is Stouffer’s—so much so, in fact, that they’ve recently launched the Let’s Fix Dinner initiative with the help of artist Todd Parr. They’re selling his limited-edition “Let’s Fix Dinner” book to raise money for Habitat for Humanity, but I just happen to have two copies of this adorable book and coordinating placemat sets (so cute!!) to give away to two lucky Want Not readers.

Want to win ’em? Of course you do! First, go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Monday, September 13th, 2010 to be entered. One entry per person, void where prohibited, and I hope you’re eating dinner as a family even without this book. Winners to be determined by random number generation and love for macaroni and cheese.

Ready? Go!


  1. Yes, we eat dinner as a family – sometime with the kids at the bar and me shoveling food in standing in the kitchen… but we are together!

  2. Oooh, I love macaroni and cheese: baked, on the stove, homemade, Kraft, and most especially my grandmother’s baked version with plain Lays potato chips on top. Yum.

  3. Okay, “Otto” was among my daughter’s first words; we LOVE Todd Parr in our house. Even though she’s moved to bigger books, she still occasionally re-reads the Todd Parr books, and her Otto stuffed toy is one of her treasures.

  4. Sounds wonderful!

  5. Yum! Thanks!

  13. We eat dinner together almost every night. For breakfast and lunch, I hide and the kitchen and pray for a little quiet…

  14. Mmmmmm…who doesn’t love mac and cheese?

  15. While I often say “Pleave remove the helmet and eat your food” and “Please get out from under the table and eat your food”, we do make an attempt at eating as a family.

  21. We eat together when we can – precious little these days – but with a hubby who regularly has to work until after the kids are in bed, weekends are when we eat together.

I still buy the regular Stouffer’s meals, but miss my Lean Cuisine meals (and I am not talking about those little one person meals). My husband and stepchildren loved the Lean Cuisine Family/Party meals and then they were just snatched away. Boo-hiss.

  27. Since buying a house, we’ve had to start sitting down to a home cooked dinner. Would love some new ideas, though.
