Now that we've gotten through the whole "eating frenzy" of the holidays, we can concentrate on the next one… SUPERBOWL 2012! Woot, woot!! I know I for one am ready for some football.. and munchies, of course. We love a good game in our household.. even better if you can make it to a live game, but that's not always so easy with our large brood.
So, we do the next best thing.. have our own "tailgate party" at home.
Thanks to Kraft Foods, we received this fab package to get us started: a Weber Smokey Mini Grill, a Coleman 3-in-1 Blanket, a Charcoal Companion 4-piece Chef BBQ Tool Set, and a copy of The Neeley's Celebration Cookbook.
We are grillin' fools, and will do it come rain, snow, or shine… or dark of night. The hubby and I decided to cook up some yummy chicken breasts and cheeseburgers for our tailgate party last week. The kids always have alot of fun helping us prepare everything, and well… you already know they love to eat too.
The hubby thoroughly enjoyed his outdoor 3-in-1 blanket that kept him warm while he played chef (which he just happens to be), and I am mesmerized by all of the delish recipes from The Neeley's cookbook — two of my FAVORITE TV chefs!! And as you can see from the grill under the new Weber grill, it was time for a new one! lol
Doesn't this look like fun?!
Sharing delicious foods with the people you love is a wonderful time, but sad to say, we have people living right here in America that don't always have enough to eat.. on a daily basis! That's where Kraft Foods' "Huddle to Fight Hunger" tailgate campaign comes into play. Unfortunately, I "dropped the ball" and didn't get this post up in time, but I wanted to share the wonderful works that Kraft does to help fight hunger.
Huddle to Fight Hunger builds upon Kraft Foods’ nearly 30-year relationship with Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization, to help fight hunger in the United States. Unfortunately, hunger remains a quiet but prominent issue in this nation, as more than 50 million Americans – one in six of our neighbors – live in food insecure households.
Their goal was to give away 25 million meals to Feed America, which was surpassed! Kraft had set a 3-year commitment to this program, with 2010 being their first year. Kraft Foods donated nearly 21 million just at the first inaugural Kraft Fight Hunger bowl game held on January 9, 2011.
Many fans participated in the 2-Minute Trivia Drill on the Kraft Fight Hunger facebook page this past year… helping to donate up to 4,000,000 meals via online games and activities. Kraft enlisted high profile partners and personalities to champion the cause and get the word out, including American Youth Football (the nation’s largest youth football organization), football legend Joe Montana, celebrity chefs Pat and Gina Neely, as well as several former football greats.
Also joining Kraft Foods’ huddle are some of our biggest brand superstars including Planters nuts, Oreo cookies, Ritz crackers, Capri Sun beverages, Oscar Mayer meats, Maxwell House coffee, Kraft Real Mayo Mayonnaise, Miracle Whip Dressing, Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and Kraft cheese.
