  1. After 24 years of marriage, your lover and your life together are more gratifying than tokens of love, so while I’d enjoy a restaurant outing, I wouldn’t do this over:
    …. .paying down the debt
    ….. homemade bean soup Valentine
    ….. cuddle on the couch
    (P.S. I wrote my haiku before I even looked at the other comments…!)

  2. For tickets to the Heirloom Tomato Fest I would be willing to sing in public my favorite ode to Homegrown Tomatoes by Guy Clark:
    Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes,
    What’d life be without home grown Tomatoes,
    There’s only two things that money can’t buy:
    That’s true love and home grown tomatoes.
    There’s nothin’ in the world that I like better than
    Bacon, lettuce and home grown tomatoes
    Up in the morning and out in the garden
    Pick you a ripe one, don’t get a hard ‘un.
    Plant ’em in the springtime eat ’em in the summer,
    All winter without ’em’s a culinary bummer.
    I forget all about the sweatin and the diggin
    Every time I go out and pick me a big’un.
    You can go out and eat’em that’s for sure,
    But there’s nothin a home grown tomato won’t cure
    You can put em in a salad, put em in a stew
    You can make your own, your very own tomato juice
    You can eat em with eggs, you can eat em with gravy
    You can eat em with beans, pinto or navy
    Put em on the side, put em on the middle
    Home grown tomatoes on a hot cake griddle
    If I could change this life I lead,
    You could call me Johnny Tomato Seed
    I know what this country needs,
    It’s home grown tomatoes in every yard you see
    When I die don’t bury me
    In a box in a cold dark cemetery
    Out in the garden would be much better
    Where I could be pushin up those home grown tomatoes.
    Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes,
    What’d life be without home grown Tomatoes,
    There’s only two things that money can’t buy:
    That’s true love and home grown tomatoes.

  3. For tickets to the Tomato Festival I would be willing to endure a colonoscopy and a root canal simultaneously and without a whimper. Short of that high price I would be willing to bring my chipotle mayonnaise to slather on a BLT, several BLT’s.

  4. Oh! for a pair of BBQ tix – I would read a few desserts from Georges Auguste Escoffier’s Le Guide Culinaire, dressed as a Count.

  5. Both of these events sound fabulous and delish and deserve my utmost enthusiastic response. So, I will heartily announce my declaration to dance for you, high up on stilts, whilst balancing a lit and flaming scimitar sword upon my head. yes, this I would do for either pair of tickets, especially the festival of Tomato!

  6. This is a no brainer. Tomatoes reign supreme. They are more healthy, don’t make your breath small bad, packed with antioxidents, and best of all (drum roll please), have almost no calories. They are a guiltless pleasure, almost like what Erika Jong wrote about (-;

  7. What would I do for tickets to the Wine Country Big ‘Que?
    I would go so far as to……
    create a haiku:
    Heat, smoke, sauce and rub
    Summer ends with Barbeque
    Wine Country Tickets
    (a true haiku not only follows the 5/7/5 syllable rule, but also mentions a season… I got a season AND seasonings in there. Extra points?)
    Also? I would wear a piggie costume! (ok, minus the snout… come on, the snout would get in the way of enjoying the aMAZing barbeque.)
    Why am I posting this here? because the link would not take me to any other likely place to tell you what I would do for tickets to the Wine Country Big Q!

  8. Yum! Always looking for new, beautiful and delicious local cheeses!! I hear someone is raising Water Buffaloes in West County and soon we’re going to have our own fresh, local buffalo mozzarella….how lucky are we??
    Patti Stack Capers & Co. Sebastopol

  9. Would love to come and get to know more about cheese and cheese lovers! I would like to tell my family and friends about how great the festival, people and chesse was. Hope to hear to from you and if not enjoy the fest and the jummy cheese.
    Buen Apetito! Salud!
    I’ll be waiting to hear from you!

  10. Queso…fromage…formaggio…CHEESE…no matter the name, I love it all. I would be oh-so thrilled to partake in this event if chosen. Thanks for your consideration!

  11. I’d love to win the pair of tickets to the Artisan Cheese Festival Marketplace!!!

  12. I would like to join you for the Five Guys Burger and Fries critique because I haven’t had a delicious burger and fries in quite a while. I am not a vegetarian or vegan, so I truly will enjoy the experience. Please select me!!
