Moms, Bloggers and Giant Food!

      Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a luncheon sponsored  by

Giant Food.  I got to enjoy a wonderful lunch, cool fellow DC Metro Mom Bloggers, and great tips on food and shopping from Giant.

Robin Michel, Executive Vice President of Giant, and a MOM, spoke to us, but more importantly, LISTENED to us about likes, and dislikes, and what would make our lives easier.

Giant is continuing to make their stores more ‘mom friendly’.  Just look at the gift baskets they will be selling in all of their stores soon!

  Aren’t they beautiful? And these will be reasonably priced. This translates to me=       great, no-sweat gift to just pick up for a party/ housewarming/ pick-me-up for a friend!

The MOST IMPORTANT aspect of this luncheon was not that the food was delicious, (it was),

not that the company was great, (it was),

not that the information was helpful, (it was),

BUT that Giant food, is speaking 1-on-1 with mothers, their shoppers.  Giant food is also recognizing the power of mom bloggers.  I read just online yesterday that ‘mommy bloggers’ are taking over the world. And anyone who was at BlogHer DC in October can’t forget Leslie Stahl announcing that ‘blogging and the online community’- is the future. 

Yes, we’re taking over the world, life is good, but like all mothers-
I must juggle world-domination with figuring out ‘what’s for dinner’. So, as Thanksgiving creeps closer, here are some helpful hints, courtesy of Giant:

* Purchase ‘anytime’ items now (frozen food, canned food, beverages, decorations).

* Buy your turkey in advance and freeze it (just remember that a frozen turkey can take 2 to 4 days to defrost in your refrigerator)

* Use a meat thermometer to cook your turkey – to take the guess-work out!

AND PS- Giant is offering pre-made Thanksgiving dinners, if you don’t want to cook.  AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, I may take advantage of this next one- pre-made/made-to-order SIDE DISHES for Thanksgiving…

I have a little secret– I ordered stuffing from the Giant deli YEARS AGO for Thanksgiving… and my father-in-law still raves about it (I hope he’s not doing a lot of online reading today, he still thinks it was homemade).
