Welcome to a brand new feature here on Brown Eyed Baker – Free Food Friday!

A local sports talk radio station here in Pittsburgh frequently has “free beer Fridays” on their show, giving away cases of beer to listeners each Friday. I thought it would be fun to do something similar here, but with food, of course. What better way to kick off the weekend than with some free food?! To start off, I’ll be running the feature every other Friday and introducing you to some of my favorite food finds – some you may know of, and some may be new to you. Here’s to some fun food giveaways on Fridays!

First up this week is a company local to Pittsburgh – Giant Eagle Market District. Giant Eagle is the major local supermarket chain here, and in recent years they have opened souped-up versions of their stores, called Market District. The stores include expanded produce, deli, cheese and bakery sections. They also have a massive cafe, a prepared foods area and a bulk foods section that will make you weak in the knees. Market Districts also host a lot of fun cooking demonstrations and are generally a foodie paradise. One of their new products is a Himalayan Salt Brick, which you use to cook on – like a baking stone, but it’s salt! Salt that’s hundreds of millions of years old. How cool is that?! I took one of the bricks for a test drive on the grill, and it was definitely as fun as it looks like it might be. The food tasted amazing, and had a fabulous, subtle seasoning.

Giant Eagle Market District wants to share an awesome rosemary shrimp recipe with you, which is perfect for one of these Himalayan Salt Bricks:

Even better, they are giving away a gift package that includes one of these bricks, as well as other goodies to get you ready for grilling season! See below for the details, and how to enter!

    I think grilled pizzas are the best. Although it’s nice to grill vegetables in the summer, grilling pizzas gives a fresher taste to a food I eat more than I should.

    I think my favorite thing to grill would be asparagus and/or salmon. They remind me of spring/summer for some reason. I love GEagle and wish I was still in the burgh to go there!

  87. Jenny F. on June 17, 2012 at 3:26 pm

    My favorite way is almost anything, since my husband does all of the grilling. Lol. My favorite side dish is sliced potatoes with sliced onions, olive oil and salt & pepper. Wrap it in foil and heat about 25 minutes (flipping once). I also love chicken wings with some light Italian dressing on them (light – because it doesn’t flair up as much on the grill).
