Giveaway warm-up

I have a giveaway on it's way! 

In the meantime, I'm going to prime you a bit for the big moment. 

I received a big tub (a quart? 960ml, anyhow) of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil (That's a Lot of Caps) in the mail this week for free!  They want me to give one away to a reader as well!  Ha!  How much fun is that?!  I'm just reading the fine print of the giveaway to ensure I do it correctly and everyone is happy, that's my delay.

In the meantime, I'll tell you what I've done with my coconut oil so far.

Well, as soon as I opened it and stopped dancing around the house with a stupid grin on my face, I put a good amount in a separate container for personal use.  I love it on my hands and face, it's very softening and I generally have rough and very dry hands.  In fact, this morning I was putting some on my hands and put my fingers through the Middle Girl's hair and it really brought her ringlets together and they stayed that way all day!  Not appetizing but I'm telling you because it works for me and maybe you too. 

So far I've made Tahini Oatmeal cookies using only raisins.  Soooooo good!  I brought them to a playgroup and one girl just kept coming back for more!  Guess they were her thing!

Then, I made French Toast and used it to fry in the pan in place of butter - that went over really well.

I've made a batch of chocolate chips for Brown Sugar Blondies tomorrow for weekend road trips.

I had a batch of Lazy Granola in the oven yesterday. 

That's it so far and there's lots more oil to go through.

This is not the giveaway question, but what would you do if you won it?  I'm just curious, that's all.
