And the Slows Bar BQ gift card & swag bag goes to...

There can only be one winner of the Slows Bar BQ gift card & fantastic swag bag of grilling goodies from Oscar Mayer. The grill is super cute and perfect for tailgates and camping trips. Plus you get a fashionable apron to wear while grilling, coupons for free Oscar Mayer Selects, grilling accessories and a Wiener Whistle. Toot, toot! Oh yeah, there’s that $25 gift card to Slows Bar BQ too!

So who is the lucky winner?

Your comments on your favorite food or snack during your childhood were so much fun to read! I’ve got to say, some were “OMG, gross!” But I won’t judge. Oops, I already did.

Other entries brought my own childhood memories fleeting back (cinnamon toast, raspberries from grandma’s garden, grilled cheese and hot dogs).

The winner, which was picked randomly (entry 51), was one of the most creative of the bunch. Her favorite meal as a kiddo was a concoction her dad made up called Matsamootsio.

Favorite childhood food was matsamootsio -- a meal my dad made up when my mom was going to nursing school. My brother, sister, and I would each get to put one ingredient into a pot of macaroni and/or rice-a-roni, stir it up, and enjoy before my mom got home! I think the weirdest combination yet was snickers, ice cream, salami and rice-a-roni matsamootsio. (Matsamootsio was my dad's attempt at making up an italian word to make it sound like a real meal).

Sounds yummy, right? OK, maybe not.

It reminded me of my own dad and how he got us to eat non-sugared cereal. My mom would only let my brother and I eat Cheerios, Rice Krispies, or Corn Flakes. Not much fun. Dad made our breakfast much better by showing us his little trick: add 2 tablespoons of sugar! The best part was the milk-sugar combination at the end of the bowl.

OK, I’ve waffled on enough. The winner of the Oscar Mayer swag bag and Slows Bar BQ gift card is…. Rachel Kuptz. Congrats Rachel! Enjoy your goodies.

Be sure to stop by next week as the “summer of giving” on Detroit Moxie continues. We’ll be giving away a pair of tickets to A Sip of Michigan. Drink Michigan is celebrating their first birthday in grand style and one lucky reader will get to join in on the fun.
