It may not be Thanksgiving yet, but it's always a good time to think about what what you have to be grateful for.
Schwan's is donating 250,000 meals to Feeding America and asking consumers to help in the fight against hunger by sharing what they are thankful for via their Facebook Page. Each “thankful” message that is shared will trigger an additional five-meal donation to Feeding America! And on “Thankful Thursdays” every week through the duration of the program, meal donations to Feeding America will be doubled.
I'm thankful for my family and friends and the fact that we have food enough for my kids to turn their noses up at, which they do waaaaaay too often. We got to try some new items from Schwan's recently and the kids actually enjoyed consuming them. I wasn't surprised that the Bacon, Egg & Cheese breakfast Toastwiches were a big hit.
They're basically toaster pastries filled with cheesy eggs and bacon, what could be bad about that? Not. One. Single. Thing.
We also got to try the Lasagna Roll Ups. They come sans sauce, which I thought was peculiar but the kids preferred them without sauce anyhow. Weirdos. They were really tasty but I wished there were more than four rolls in the box.
The biggest surprise was the Beef Pot Pies. I didn't manage to snap a photo of them but they were really yummy, with big chunks of stew meat and veggies in a flaky crust. Mmm. Even Bob, who generally eschews prepared foods, was totally into them.
I've had a crush on the Schwan's retro yellow delivery truck for years.
Do you have a Schwan's story or want to share something you're thankful for?
