Grilling a Papa Murphy’s Pizza is Easy – win a Big Green Egg grill #DadMoments #EGGhead4Life #sponsored

Gilling a Papa Murphy's Pizza on a Big Green Egg grill

Father’s Day is just around the corner. I’m hoping to chill out with the kids and grill a fresh pizza or two next Sunday. That’s right, you can grill a pizza instead of baking it in the oven. It’s a new grilling trick I learned recently. My co-workers have told me about cooking their pizza in a smoker before, but I have never tried it until this past weekend. I made it easy on myself by purchasing a couple of take and bake pizzas. BTW, I will be compensated for this post on my dad blog for writing about Papa Murphy’s and their Father’s Day giveaway. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review. #DadMoments #EGGhead4Life #sponsored

Bowl Us Over Contest – Win a $500 Gift Card, Aroma Rice Cooker

When I was a kid, I hated rice. We ate rice every single day (it’s the curse of being Chinese). Rice for dinner. Rice for lunch. I don’t remember what we ate for breakfast, but it wouldn’t surprise me if we had rice for breakfast too. After 18 years of eating rice every day, I stopped eating rice when I went to college. However, by the time I graduated from college I not only missed rice, but I also realized I actually like rice (just not every day). Freshly made steamed white rice tastes good with just about everything. And dads and moms can easily make a rice bowl by adding ingredients like diced carrots, peas, scrambled eggs, beef, chicken, and shrimp.
