Pinteresting foodie stuff, and maybe some grocery money for you!

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Giveaways and product reviews

As some of you already know, I’ve been working with Sobeys on a few things over the past little while. I wanted to let you all know about a fab little contest that just launched today. If you’re on Pinterest and love good food, you will definitely find this interesting, or PINTERESTING. ;)

Anyone who:

(a) creates a pinboard and
(b) repins any 4 pins from Sobeys Pinterest page and tags their repins with #LoveSobeys and
(c) posts a comment on this blog post over on the Sobeys Love Food blog

…is entered to win one of 12, $100 Sobeys gift cards. EASY PEASY.

What would you do with the money if you won? Me: I think I’d use it host a Japanese-themed meal for the family, just for fun. These are a few pins from my Japanese-inspired pinboard.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
