Back to the Roots – Mushroom Kit Giveaway!

Giveaway

Happy Valentine’s Day Week! Happy Lunar New Year! Happy happy week…

Today I’m giving away something I’ve loved for a long, long time: a mushroom kit from Back to the Roots. That’s right, my fwiendz, today I’m giving you mushrooms. Oyster mushrooms, actually.

This kit is kind of amazing. All you do is water the goods (inside the box) and in about 10 days you have 1 1/2 pounds of fresh, beautiful oyster mushrooms. SO COOL!

If I had 1 1/2 pounds of oysters, I’d make this pasta dish with brown butter and fried sage, or this white mushroom lasagna…or maybe this mushroom risotto.

To enter, simply leave a comment below answering the following question:

1. What’s your favorite 90’s movie? Here are a few of my favorites: Walking and Talking, Reality Bites, Before Sunrise/Before Sunset, Dazed and Confused, Beauty and the Beast…you get the idea! Annnnd go…

Giveaway ends Tuesday (2/13) at midnight. I’ll choose a winner and post the person’s name, along with their favorite 90’s movie. Good luck!

Back to the Roots Giveaway!

Giveaway

It’s Friday so I’m giving away mushrooms, naturally! #duh

Actually, in all seriousness, this is super cool, guys. Back to the Roots is a company founded by two guys in Oakland, California. Their short story goes like this: two dudes graduate from UC Berkeley, flip their noses at the corporate world and instead decide to grow mushrooms in coffee grounds. Sounds kind of crazy…errr…awesome, right? Well, I think so. Who doesn’t drink coffee? Who doesn’t love mushrooms?  No one, that’s who! And growing food off of waste? Pretty incredible stuff.

Here’s the deal: this kit here allows you to grow oyster mushrooms in about 10 days (in soil that’s 100% coffee grounds from Peet’s!). All you do is place it on your windowsill, mist (mister included in kit) it once a day and ten days later…boom!  Mushrooms.  Genius.  Cute.  Moldy.  All words to describe this super smart idea. Get on it!

Giveaway deets:

Leave a comment telling me what summer dishes you’re digging so far (I need some inspiration).  I’ll randomly (using my trusty random calculator) pick a winner on Sunday at midnight (EST).

Aaaaaand go!
