{SimpleHospitality, Day 17} A Moms and Tots Brunch (And a Giveaway!)

*** This Giveaway is now closed. ***

Today I had the pleasure of hosting 9 lovely women and their young children for a moms and tots brunch.  The food was quite a spread but all the other details were super simple. A grocery store bouquet, one lit candle on the stove top, lots of chit chat and laughter, a sink full of dishes and toys on the floor.




A group of women with very different lives and struggles and experiences, united through food and friendship and faith.



It was exactly what my spirit needed today.  And I have a feeling that some of the other ladies felt the same way.

And Now for the Giveaway! 



Five of the recipes I made this morning were from my friend Beth's new ( as in, released today) cookbook ebook: The Breakfast Revolution: Recipes from Outside the Cereal Box.  And oh.my goodness friends, they were amazing.  Her Southwestern Frittata is about to become a regular around our house and the Pumpkin Oatmeal Bake? Autumn Awesomeness.

Plus, the recipes are gluten-free and made from real, good, healthful foods.  Chocolate Avocado pudding with no sugar, anyone? For breakfast?  Um...yes please!

With gorgeous photographs, 85 beautiful pages, over 40 kid-friendly real food recipes, and Beth's friendly down-to-earth words, this eBook is a valuable resource.  I can't say enough good things about this eBook.



And this week, 10 of my readers will get it for FREE!  Here's how to enter for a chance to win:

1) For your first entry: Just comment below.  Make sure to include your email address so that I can contact you if you win!
2) For a bonus second entry: Share this post with your friends through facebook, twitter, google+, pinterest....whatever!  And then come back and leave a second comment so that you'll be entered twice!

On Friday I will pick 10 (Ten! Woohoo!)  winners at random.

Plus, if you just can't wait until Friday to see if you win, Beth has a coupon code available right now (here)  to save 30% off the $8.95 purchase price.  If you win the giveaway and have already purchased the book, Beth will refund your payment! 

Good luck!

This is day 17 (several days late!) in a series about simple hospitality.  Click here to see more.

  77. I really enjoy your down-home, practical take on life! I'd love a copy of your friend's book. I have a bunch of food allergies, and I've found that starting with a gluten-free recipe causes me to make fewer modifications, and is therefore less work, than when I start with a regular recipe. craftlet12(at)gmail(dot)com.
