Wasa Giveaway

March 19, 2012

in giveaway

Excitement from SFIAAFF is over (just posted a bunch of photos on my Facebook Page) and pilot season craziness seems to be dying down, so I finally get a chance to start a week off mellow.


Special delivery arrived while eating breakfast!


I’ve had Wasa Crispbreads before, but have never tried these new Flatbreads


They’re much thinner, but packed with flavor! This was the Rosemary kind…


…topped with Majestic Sprouted Hummus



I’ve a feeling Abe might actually like these (the others are too cardboard-y for his tastes) but Wasa did also send some recipe ideas (more on their Facebook Recipe Gallery)…




…Crispbread Pudding…mmmm.


Want some Wasa too (including the cookbook and a pen)? If you’re a US Resident, just leave a comment on this post saying you wanna win. That’s it! Gotta keep this simple/calm theme going today…


…especially since I just found out all of my car’s motor mounts have to be replaced. D’oh!

I want to win! I’ve been wanting to try those, but have yet to do so.

3 quinn March 19, 2012 at 3:09 pm

Well it sounds like you didn’t find out about the mounts because the engine fell out, so that;s good, right? :)

Enjoy your quiet(er) time.

(And yes, I would love to win da wasa!)

5 Cindy March 19, 2012 at 3:16 pm

A cookbook and a pen!? Count me in.

Motor mounts. Damn girl…you been driving the Baja 1000. Hope it won’t be too much of a zinger. :(

I wanna win wonderful wasa!!

12 Taylor March 19, 2012 at 3:28 pm

Oh man, glad I clicked today! I usually make an awesome tuna salad for my Wasa snacks. I use all-white albacore tuna (in water), a few tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, lots of fresh dill, diced onions, and a tablespoon of vinegar. Pretty tasty with sliced tomatoes, too. I would love to expand my Wasa horizons!

13 Lynn at The Actors Diet March 19, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Yum! I wanna try that!

I want to win! I’ve been eating Wasa for years, and especially love it with Kalles Kaviar, or a layer of greek yoghurt mixed with a wee bit of St Dalfour jam or honey for a guitless treat.

Fantastic blog, by the way. I stumbled across it one day and thoroughly enjoy reading the posts and candid descriptions of the food you sample and eat!

38 Dewey March 19, 2012 at 5:26 pm

Wasa is my jam! I eat absurd amounts of it. Honestly, it’s ridiculous. I would love to win! Also, I found your blog a month ago on TheKitchn (I think?) and I can’t stop reading. I love it, and your ethos about food and eating hits so close to home. Thanks for making the internet a friendlier place!

39 Lynn at The Actors Diet March 19, 2012 at 5:46 pm

58 s March 19, 2012 at 7:23 pm

i stumbled across your blog completely by chance the week before you were in SF for SFIAAFF! unfortunately, though, i was out of town the weekend you were here…

i’m piggybacking off of the giveaway to say that i was really moved by your motivations for starting this blog. on the night that i found it, i spent hours reading old entries, thinking about how brave and strong you are. thanks, also, for introducing me to thick dumpling skin, which would have done me a world of good had it been around when i was in college. anyway, apologies for the longish, sappy-ish comment; brevity, alas, has never been my strength.

59 Lynn at The Actors Diet March 19, 2012 at 8:09 pm

thanks! sorry i missed you in san fran…

60 Annie March 19, 2012 at 7:29 pm

YUM! I want to win!!!

61 mondaybirds March 19, 2012 at 7:33 pm

I wanna win even though I am way late to today’s party. Tried to write earlier but saw the hummus on rosemary flatbreads and I hurt myself licking my computer screen. Ow! Yum!

72 Emily March 19, 2012 at 10:09 pm

Well, of course I would love to win! I used to eat Wasa crackers all the time but haven’t bought any in quite a while. The new flatbreads sound great!

74 Jung March 19, 2012 at 11:13 pm

I feel ridiculous for making this my first comment, but I want to win! Ever since I became vegan and ventured into reading other blogs, I’ve always been a fan of yours! But I try to not check during the night because I tend to get hungry just by looking at the pictures!

75 Lynn at The Actors Diet March 20, 2012 at 7:59 am

happy to hear from you, regardless!

76 Yvonne S March 19, 2012 at 11:22 pm

Ooh I really want to win ! Wasa (for all it’s lovely “cardboardness”) is a HUGE favorite of mine. Wasa with summer tomatoes right from the garden? Yum! Wasa crumbled on a salad (better than croutons) wasa with carob chips melted atop? Well that’s heavenly

82 Kamaile March 20, 2012 at 5:44 am

I love Wasa crackers with hummus & olive tapenade.

I want to win! that cookbook looks awesome!!!

86 Walo March 20, 2012 at 7:16 am

Yea! Nothing like a contest to bring out some of your usually quiet and shy blog readers to give you the love you deserve.
Wanted to add my praise to the rest and tell you (again) how much I enjoy your blog. I know it must be a P.I.T.A. to post twice a day, but I really appreciate all the effort. It is so helpful to have the opportunity to peak over your shoulder and see what a “normal” person is eating.
Sorry about your car, and thanks again for everything. Wanted you know how much I do appreciate your blog. (not doing this for the Wasa, by the way, that stuff is about as appetizing as a ream of copy paper)

87 Lynn at The Actors Diet March 20, 2012 at 7:59 am

thank you, walo!!!

88 Jamie March 20, 2012 at 8:04 am

I too would love to win…just recently started eating the wasa crispbread…will have to look for the flat breads at the store when I go today. I am addicted to having one for my mid morning snack with natural peanut butter and sliced bananas. It makes my whole day better. Will have to try some of your and check out that book that was posted.

116 Tt in nyc March 24, 2012 at 6:28 pm

Hope the contest is still open! I would love to win some wasa! I love those things…

117 Lacey April 9, 2012 at 9:49 pm

I would love to win! Eating so much Wasa lately as part of my transition to a healthier diet to tame my Lupus.
