You guessed it! They all needed me to use a waffle iron. :)

This week Sunday Supper celebrates that wondrous tool with a salute to waffles!

June 29th is National Waffle Iron Day and we are kicking it off with a huge waffle event! Although waffles have been around since the 14th century, the first American patent for a waffle iron was issued in 1869. Americans LOVE their waffles and waffle irons and have been making all sorts of waffle creations over the years! Sweet waffles, savory waffles, even omelets made on a waffle iron all are fair game in this event. We want to hear what creative recipe you like to make on your waffle iron! So heat up that iron and join us as we celebrate National Waffle Iron Day!

My contribution this week is for the peanut lovers out there.

Who remembers Fluffernutter sandwiches? A great kid treat with a cold glass of milk.

Fluffernutter sandwiches were a treat saved for special occasions. I must confess I would have rather had a PB&J with fluff than just a fluff and peanut butter sandwich.

These waffles are also made with peanut butter powder. That’s 3 times the peanutty goodness in every bite.

Go ahead, take a bite.

Ah, summer. Time for fun with family and friends. I love throwing easy, relaxing themed get-togethers. Tea Parties are one of my favorites. Of course, for summer that means refreshing, ice cold tea.

Tea parties can be a lot of fun! You can hold a tea party anytime of day. Stage one for the perfect brunch, dinner or warm summer night fun.

Tapas or appetizers are often my go-to choice for food. Everyone can pick and choose what they want to try.

Snapple® Straight Up™ Tea and tapas

Offering a variety of tea adds to the excitement.

I love to give my guests a selection. Snapple® Straight Up™ Tea comes in five delicious varieties made from black, green and rooibos tea.

I’m offering something a little spicy with Spicy Crab Spread. This spread blends juicy crab meat, cream cheese, jalapeño peppers, horseradish and more served on garlic crostini.

A light canapé of cucumber topped with velvety Avocado Mousse is a great summer combo.

Celebrate National Dairy Month with Minerva #contest #ad @churnitup

Minerva Dairy Hosts “Get Buttered Up” Campaign, Delivers Weekly Affirmations and Serves Local Food Pantry

minervadairy_infographicF

I wanted to pass along this cool contest going on at the Minerva Dairy website. I received no compensation for posting this information.

MINERVA, OH (May 31, 2016) – Minerva Dairy, America’s oldest family-owned cheese and butter dairy, is celebrating National Dairy Month with a “Get Buttered Up” campaign that aims to inspire and enlighten. With a full year of weekly affirmations meant to “butter you up,” Minerva Dairy will share positive and inspirational messages with consumers who sign up via email. Upon signing up, they will also have the opportunity to win a Minerva Dairy prize pack complete with a robust supply of product, cookware courtesy of Swiss Diamond and a cash prize of $250. Minerva Dairy will also “butter up” the company’s local food pantry with a generous contribution. Participants can receive weekly affirmations and enter to win by visiting Minerva Dairy online during the month of June.

The “Get Buttered Up” campaign, hosted during National Dairy Month in June, is the ideal opportunity to celebrate Minerva Dairy as a fifth generation-owned dairy while offering consumers 52 weeks of positive affirmations and a friendly competition that ultimately benefits the Minerva community. Once they sign up for the weekly affirmations, consumers will be entered to win the grand prize. Awarded to one consumer chosen at random at the conclusion of National Dairy Month on June 30, it will include one $250 gift card and a robust supply of Minerva Dairy’s signature Amish Roll Butter plus a collection of premium Swiss Diamond cookware.

Five additional gift packages, featuring Minerva Dairy product and Minerva Dairy swag, will be distributed among the runner-ups. To further support the community, Minerva Dairy will also donate their Amish Roll Butter to Minerva’s local food bank.

“National Dairy Month reminds us to celebrate the dairy industry and the part we play in it as a sustainable, responsibly sourced dairy,” shares Adam Mueller, CEO at Minerva Dairy and fifth generation family member.

“Minerva Dairy has always been invested in the communities we serve. By hosting this year’s “Get Buttered Up” campaign in honor of National Dairy Month, we are proud to be able to give back to consumers in a small way through our weekly affirmations but also in a large way by supporting our local food pantry at the completion of the campaign in the best way we know how: donating our authentic 84% butterfat Amish Roll Butter in the hopes that it will nourish local families as much as it has our own.”

Each product produced at Minerva Dairy is defined by attention to detail. From the ingredients to the production process and from the taste to the texture, supreme quality sets the fifth generation-run company apart. Honoring the time-tested process that gives Amish Roll Butter its rich flavor and supreme quality, each product boasts qualities that define excellence for Minerva Dairy. The company features small-batch churned, rBST free, antibiotic-free, vegetarian and gluten free butter with 84% butterfat, a standard that set its Amish Roll Butter apart from commodity butter. The Amish Roll Butter reflects the company’s passion for bringing consumers the very best dairy available from healthy, grass-fed, pasture-raised cows.

About Minerva Dairy

Minerva Dairy is America’s oldest family-owned dairy, producing traditionally made cheese and butter from pasture-raised cows. Five generations strong, the Minerva Dairy family continues to use farm-fresh milk, old fashion churns and wholesome ingredients. It takes consumers back to an era when lifestyles were simpler, invites them to slow down and enjoy each product with their families just as the Minerva Dairy family has since 1894.
