Update: And the winner, as chosen by Random.org, is Marcela! I'll email you soon.
Yes, we realize an adorable beach tote has very little to do with cooking or eating (unless you stuff it with chips, bread, hummus, and a refreshing bottle of wine). But it is summery and our friends at Simply Bags offered one to a Half Assed Kitchen reader. You choose the color and monogram (12 characters max.). To enter, just leave a comment on this post before Sunday, July 4th at 9 pm Pacific Time. We'll randomly select one comment and will email the winner. We'll also try to remember to announce the winner here, but we're bad about that.
