Friday Trivia is back with a whole new round! You have 4 chances to win this month, and I’ll actually be announcing the winner on Dec 30th – don’t want to interfere with your party plans. :) I promise I won’t forget this time. Eek!

The prize will be announced on the 15th. What do you think it will be? Hmm…

 

Have you been doing much Christmas baking? I haven’t started yet, but will definitely be making these for the holidays.

 

 

Oreo Balls.

Peppermint Chocolate Cookies.

Not to mention, all of those holiday appetizers! Which one is your favorite so far?

 

Here are your guidelines:

-3 questions are posted Friday morning. 

 

-You have until midnight (EST) Friday to qualify –leave your answer in the comments section.

 

-The comments will not be made public until Saturday. I will get it, but it will not appear. So please do not comment 324 times like I have in situations like these. One comment per person.

 

-Everyone who answers correctly will be entered into a drawing for an awesome prize EVERY MONTH. This means if you participate in FOUR trivia Fridays in one month, you have FOUR chances to win. I sure am good at math.

 

-The prize will be different each time and announced on the 15th of the month. It may be small, it may be big. It may be tangible or not. It may be a lock of my hair. Who knows? Either way, it will be announced mid-month. 

 

-The winner will be randomly chosen and announced on the last day of the month. If the last day falls on a Friday, winner will be chosen Saturday.

 

Thank my brother for this super-fun idea.

 

I thought you may enjoy some fun, food-filled trivia. :)

 

Questions:

1. What is the literal meaning of the Italian word ‘linguine?’

2. How many flowers are in the design stamped on each side of an Oreo cookie?

3. What was the name of Cheerios when it was first marketed 50 years ago?

 

Thanks for playin’!

    Hey Jess..I’m definitely making the chocolate cookies with the peppermint and/or Baileys kisses, they look dangerous…By the way, the Burpees you suggested are not the same Burpees I remember you used to perform in your early years….

    Seriously, plastic deveiners are 2.99 at the grocery store fish counter and they are awesome haha. You have inspired me to do a Giada-style Web video on how to peel and devein shrimpies though since it’s actually something I enjoy! So weird.

    Love the trivia idea :)
