 There were over 1100 entries for the best 6 ingredients or less recipe to win the $600 gift card.  It was IMPOSSIBLE for me to just pick one so I decided the fair thing would be to let the computer pick a number for me.  So the winner is www.syndermonkeys.blogspot.com.  CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I did think I would highlight just a couple of the amazing recipes - y'all should really check the comments on THIS POST for more great recipes!!!

American Express Six Ingredients Giveaway

I have an exciting giveaway contest!! Y'all know I'm not big on give aways and rarely do them but the people at American Express talked to me about doing something and I thought it would be fun AND someone will be very happy if they win!!!

With the costs of food, gas and clothing rising rapidly, the new American Express Blue Cash® Cards provide a simple way for shoppers to put cash back in their pockets as they shop for every day necessities. With these new Blue Cash Cards, there are no spend minimums, cash back caps, ongoing enrollments or rotating categories of cash back benefits. The benefits don’t change, as they do with some other cards.

Both Cards immediately offer cash back in categories in which prices are particularly under pressure: gas, supermarket purchases and department stores.

Whether when shopping online or in-store, offers an easy-to-understand rewards structure:

For Blue Cash Preferred, it’s as simple as 6%-3%-1% (6% cash back at supermarkets, up to 3% at department stores and gas stations, and 1% on all other eligible purchases). At 6% cash back, Blue Cash Preferred offers consumers the most cash back at the supermarket available in the market today. (Blue Cash Preferred carries a $75 annual fee)

For Blue Cash Everyday, it’s a simple as 3%-2%-1% (3% cash back at supermarkets, 2% cash back at department stores and gas stations, and 1% on all other eligible purchases) with no annual fee.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO in honor of the 6% cash back on groceries..............I am going to be doing a contest looking for the best SIX INGREDIENT (or less) main dish! I'm posting my favorite 6 ingredient meal and then in the comments - I want you to leave your 6 ingredient recipe and I'm going to pick the one that sounds the very best and that person is going to win ...............a $600 American Express gift card!!!! Couldn't you use that to buy groceries? Or anything?????

This is MY favorite 6 ingredient meal:

4 chicken breasts
4-8 strips of bacon
16 oz sour cream
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 can of sliced mushrooms
1 jar of dried beef (this is found near tuna or spam)
Wrap the chicken in bacon and put in pan
Mix up all the other ingredients. Tear up the dried beef into small pieces (this is what gives the meal the real flavor)
Pour mixture over chicken and bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours
I always serve with white rice and pour the extra sauce on top. If we had company - we would add vegetables or a salad and rolls - but since it's just us - we just had this. TASTY!

Leave a comment with your favorite 6 ingredient main dish. Make sure you leave your email address as well!

The winner will be picked on Monday, June 6th!

I am not being compensated by American Express or OPR for this in any way - just thought it would be fun for my readers!
