Free Birds . . . Blu-ray Give-Away!

I've been invited to participate in a special give-away of the new movie, Free Birds - which releases to Blu-ray on February 4th, so while I have not watched this movie yet, I thought it sounded like a fun give-away and am delighted for the opportunity for one of you to win this movie!

I personally am very glad turkey is part of Thanksgiving Dinner! I LOVE turkey with mashed potatoes, gravy and stuffing, so I thought I'd share with you one of my favorite ways to prepare a turkey breast . . . place it in the slow-cooker with cut apples a little water and herbs; I like to use Thyme, Rosemary, Marjoram and Basil, but you can use whatever you especially like! Cover and allow to cook until it reaches the temp on the package - time depends on the size of the turkey breast.

Cooking your turkey in the slow-cooker gives you such a tender, juicy and delicious turkey! How do you like to cook your turkey?

Before I get to the specifics on the give-away, I also wanted to share with you, "Ten Things You Might Not Know About Turkeys" . . . as they are both interesting and fun . . . you'll find them at this link!

So . . . the details for entering this fun give-away, which will be on February 4, 2014, are . . . if you are over the age of 18 and live in the USA you may enter by commenting below to let me know which of the "Ten Things You Might Not Know About Turkeys" was the most interesting or surprising to you . . . we have lots of wild turkeys around where I live . . . I've counted as many as 40 walking through my yard at one time! So, while I know several of these, I do find knowing turkeys can fly up to 55mph very surprising!

Additional entries in this give-away are available if you follow on Google+, Google Friend Connect, follow by liking on facebook with the tab at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share!) This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win the Free Birds blu-ray combo pack and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!

  2. I was surprised by this fact: Turkeys need to be trained to eat. They must be taught to eat small meals throughout the day.
