I can hardly believe that Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. Besides the fact that it’s a few days early this year, we were seriously gypped with Hurricane Sandy robbing us of Halloween (and, of course, so many fellow New Jerseyans are still without power as I write this). That being said, the positive thing about Thanksgiving being right around the corner is that it’s the universal signal to start eating comfort food.
Hell to the oh yeah.
In fact, I’m not even going to wait that long. As I plan our menu for dinner with guests tomorrow, it’s all.about.the.comfort.food.
Because after 8 days of being without power, there is nothing more I’d like to do than to wrap myself up with a warm blanket of mashed potatoes and gravy.
Now speaking of coming together for the holidays, the folks behind FUZE juices are about to help YOU come together in a fun giveaway. To the tune of a $50 Amex gift card for one lucky winner.
Before I get to the details on that, they were also kind enough to send us a package of their FUZE juices (a product from The Coca-Cola Company). The kids, particularly my oldest, have gotten into the habit of tearing open boxes before they’re barely in the house. With Christmas coming, and online shopping underway, I delivered a gentle lecture that if someone accidentally tears into a box that is not addressed to them, and it turns out to be a Christmas present, then it’s getting donated.
And that was the end of that.
But not before they had torn into the box of FUZE juices that landed on our doorstep. Nick finished the Strawberry Lemonade flavor in one weekend. And loved it. With only 15 calories per bottle, it also boasts 1330 mcg of Vitamin A, 120 mg of Vitamin C, and five more important vitamins and nutrients. Although it does contain a bit of sucralose, we keep a keen eye on artificial flavors, and it’s the exception, not the norm.
And now the good part… in the spirit of coming together, I would love for you to create a Pinterest board with the theme “Come Together and Pass the FUZE.” On it, share any meal ideas or recipes that you enjoy (or might enjoy!) with your friends and loved ones. I bet you know the perfect dishes to include, especially with Thanksgiving planning in full swing.
