Fourth of July is JUST AROUND THE CORNER! And that means - barbecues, family and friends! It also means cooking, grilling and dishes - blech! Well - I've got a way around that - get all your goodies this year from HoneyBaked Ham!
They have a variety of side dishes made at the store - as well as some frozen ones. I went with macaroni salad, baked beans and potato salad. For journalistic purposes - I had to try them all last night with dinner.
* Macaroni salad - I love the straight macaroni - no idea why - but I just do. It does have a heavy mayo flavor but I like the vegetables in with it. It's a must-have!
* Baked Beans - these are delicious and have that "cooked for hours" taste that I love - plus they're egg-free for the hubby!
* Loaded Baked Potato Salad - I hadn't had this before and YUM! This has a much lighter, less-mayo flavor than a lot of potato salads - I almost wondered if it even had any in it (it does). This was light and fluffy - LOVED IT!
They also have broccoli salad and a coleslaw - both have mayo - and I didn't feel like eating them all by myself. But good options as well.
the protein! The store manager was nice enough to let us try all of the meat options we had available - so we did 1 slab of ribs and 1 pound each of brisket, chicken and pork. Larry dug into the ribs before I could even take pics of them! The nice thing with their ribs is that they come in this bag so you can just pop it right in the oven! Less work for me :-) Larry thought the ribs were pretty good but a little fatty.
Certified Angus Beef - and I just learned how fantastic that is last week!
One other thing to note - all the meats are cooked when you get them - so you're just heating them up if you choose. That said - you don't even need an oven. Head to the park and picnic it up!
And now it's giveaway time! I'm running this giveaway just through Wednesday in hopes that I can get the coupon in the mail that day so the winner can have these for the Fourth of July weekend! So invite your friends and enter to win! They say it's a $75 value but the bill was over $85 for all of the goods - so thanks so much to HoneyBaked Ham for the wonderful treat for me & you!
