Wednesday date night + a sweet giveaway

Erik and I managed to do date night two Wednesdays in a row!  I made an easy 30 minute meal of herb and goat cheese stuffed chicken breasts, we had red wine, watched our TV shows (Modern Family and Nashville) and even had dessert.  It was a great night, even though I could have gone to bed at 8pm, I was so tired.   During dinner Erik said "I want an ice cream sandwich" which was random.  But I remembered we had some chocolate chip cookies in our freezer from his mom as well as ice cream...one minute later we had dessert!  Easy and super yummy.   In case you are looking at these champagne chocolate dipped strawberries and thinking we got all romantic last night...think again :)  Fannie May sent these to me about a week ago and I brought them to brunch with some girlfriends.  These are delicious and super beautiful.  They even have pretty little sparkly sugar.
I am giving away a dozen chocolate dipped strawberries to a lucky reader (who preferably has a sweet tooth).  

To enter the giveaway comment on this post and tell me when/where/with who you would eat these strawberries (breakfast?  A romantic dinner with your honey? An afternoon snack?)  Obviously, these are perfect for a special occasion but that didn't stop me from opening the box and eating a strawberry on a random Thursday after work.  I did share the strawberry (minus the chocolate) with Juliet and she loved it.  

The giveaway will end on Monday at 11:59pm and I'll announce the winner on Tuesday.  Open to US residents only.  Good luck!

  2. I travel quite often for work (I am in Thailand now!) and I hate being away from my husband. I would cook dinner for him at home and surprise him with the strawberries for dessert!

  17. I would surprise my boyfriend with a picnic and take these strawberries along with some champagne to enjoy! I live in wine country and there's nothing better than a fall afternoon picnic overlooking the hills and vineyards with their gorgeous shades of orange and yellow. A cozy blanket, yummy food, and my love would make it absolutely perfect :)

  24. Yum! For me, I would LOVE to eat these with my husband and sweet toddler boy on a Friday or Saturday night. WE always make weekend nights a little extra special, whether it's a serious dance party by candle light or fire or going out for dinner, something fun always comes of it. What a fun giveaway!

  29. Let's see..... There are 12 of them, so I would share them with my husband and we would have one each with every meal for one whole day. Start out a Saturday with a Mimosa and 2 strawberries, after lunch 2 strawberries, midday snack 2 strawberries, after dinner 2 strawberries, late night snack 2 strawberries with Rose Champagne. Sounds like the perfect day to me.

  30. What a fun product! I had no idea. How would I share them? Since my husband isn't a chocolate fan, I'd probably pull them out on a Thursday night & share them with my Lifegroup/Bible study folks. A sweet treat is always a fun surprise on Thursdays.

  33. I would start by eating these at Breakfast, and perhaps a morning snack. I would continue to lunch and relive my breakfast experience. I would follow up at dinner and if I was treated extra special, I would share.

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway!
