tension so thick

his is a visual pop quiz so get out your number two pencils or your iPhone apps or whatever it is you use to cheat to get the answers. Trust me you want to. Cheating on this quiz is suggested and perhaps even rewarded because sometimes when you dont know what you are talking about you can somehow get lucky and sound like it. If you want to look around the internets to get some ideas you can start by looking at some kids beds, or you can look at some exercise equipment - I always find that by looking at physically fit people it makes me feel more physically fit or you could look at some kitchen things and imagine all the wonderful things you could cook forgetting all about being physically fit. Ok enough prepping lets get started with the quiz - please write your answers in the comments.

1- What is this?

a) a burger
b) my version of a big mac
c) my version of a quarter pounder
d) my version of a big boy

2- What kind of sauce is on this and what kind of pasta is it?

a) bechamel and spaghetti
b) alfredo and whole wheat spaghetti
c) whole wheat spaghetti and cream
d) 7 grain vermicelli and cheese

3- This is venison sausage on rye with provolone - why?

a) I needed to make someone a snack
b) its something we eat all the time
c) there were no more rolls
d) its the way everyone eats game meat

4- These cabbage rolls are also known as?

a) gawumpkis
b) galumpkis
c) gowumpkis
d) gilumpkis

5- I learned how to poach eggs from watching television - who did I learn from?

a) Julia Child
b) Jacques Pepin
c) Gordon Ramsey
d) Emeril Lagasse

6- This one is not multiple choice - what is it? (hint: cherries are usually the popular fruit for this easy to make dessert)

7- Last question: which knife set would you prefer? (I know which one I would want and it may not be the one you think)

a) Zwilling JA Henckels International Fine Edge Synergy 17 Piece Block Cutlery Set

b) Chicago Cutlery Insignia Cutlery Set - also 17 pieces.

Can you feel the tension, tension so thick you could cut it with a knife - in fact these knives, the very knives you will win. CSN Stores contacted me and asked if I wanted to make one of my readers very lucky, so in honor of you all I said yes then I spent many days looking over the thousands of products they have available and I decided that everyone needs some good knives. To forgo all the tweet me and follow me business you can get two entries right off the bat by leaving a comment with all the correct answers - one wrong answer and you are back to having only one entry, if you want to get that entry back you can by following me on twitter and tweeting: I am doing whatever I can to win this knife set (or whatever you want plus this url and hash tag) #winknives and then come back and tell me you made the tweet in a separate comment and thats it, so you see you can potentially get three entries - simple as that. Sorry but you have to live in the US to receive it - so if you want to enter and you are from outside the USA you can still win it but you would have to have it sent to someone in the United States. Good Luck the winner will be announced after a random drawing on Tuesday April 6th - entries will be closed on midnight of the 5th.

Dont forget to tell me if you did the twitter thing because if you already follow I will have no way of knowing - it is an extra entry. PS I added #winknives hash tag so hopefully I can track them.

Disclaimer: I was not paid to do this giveaway, nor did I receive any compensation or goods. I was simply contacted regarding the opportunity to provide my lovely readers with a wonderful giveaway.
