C&J’s Holiday Picks 11.22.11

OUR TOP HOLIDAY PICKS

Barbara’s Picks

Wrigley, Extra Dessert Delights

You know when you just have to have something sweet? It doesn’t matter how well you have done on your diet, you just have to have something sweet! This gum tames my sweet tooth and it really does taste like ice cream.   I don’t love the strawberry sundae as much but Mint Chocolate Chip…..yum!

Priester’s Pecans

Gotta have nuts on Thanksgiving!  (And I am not talking about the in-laws)   I love Priesters Pecans, they really are nuttier and fresher than the bland nuts in your supermarket.

Midnight Fudge Fantasy Cake

The midnight fudge fantasy cake at Publix market is better than homemade.  I like to cook on holidays but I don’t really like to bake. Why do I need to when there is still fantasy cake in the world of desserts.

Homelite Blower

Ladies….go ahead and just buy yourself a leaf blower. It’s so liberating to blow the leafs off my back porch everyday with my little lightweight plug in Homlite blower.  I have had this blower for six years and it never fails me.  Unlike the gas blower, you don’t have to rip your arm out of the socket to start it.

Jennifer’s Picks

Publix Turkey

Being the daughter of a Gourmet Butcher I have had some of the best Turkey’s ever…Having said that…Publix Brand Turkey’s, fresh or frozen hands down have been the best I have ever made.  Every year they turn out amazing without fail!!!

Marinade them at least 24 hrs before with:  Paprika, fresh garlic, salt pepper, and fresh oranges.  Make a paste and spread it all over the turkey and stuff it with the extra oranges.  Thoroughly rinse in the morning  inside and out and proceed stuffing and baking…

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

My Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without watching the Macy’s Day Parade.  In my 20′s I used to live on the street in NYC where they blew up the balloons, my last year living there it was snowing.  How magical, then and now!  Catch it on NBC 9am-noon {all time zones}.

Wondra

Want great gravy with no lumps???  This is my perfect {secret} ingredient and works every time!

Easy Spirit, Getupandgo   

After a very full lunch/dinner, get outside and take a long walk.  I have a pair of easy spirit shoes.  Love them, they are  light, comfy and easy on my heels… Now I am going to buy these sneakers…They are priced great too!

    I’m impressed, I have to say. Really not often do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve gotten hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across your site.
