We started our meal with burgers cooked out on the grill. These were complimented by Arnold buns, which were perfectly fresh and soft. The buns tasted excellent, and they held up well even with the juicier burgers.
We had salad (as well as chips and beans) on the side. We all opted for the Kraft ranch dressing. It is not only a traditional dressing, but it tastes creamy and pours well. Some of the leftover dressing was perfect for dipping veggies in as a snack, as well.
The kit also contained Ritz crackers. I had eaten a couple already, since I love the buttery crispness of Ritz crackers. However, since Ritz crackers were recalled, I was afraid to serve them to our guests. I was so disappointed that I had to take this extra precaution, since I love having Ritz Crackers and cheese cubes to snack on while the meat is being grilled.
For dessert, we made s'mores. Hershey's chocolate bars are the perfect (and traditional) way to get our s'mores chocolaty and gooey. So yummy!
When we finished our meal, it was time for me to clean up the mess. While we visited, I used Viva paper towels to clean up spills, wipe down counters, and then dry my hands after I washed them. They are so soft on the skin, so they are perfect for scrubbing hands and faces. They are also strong and durable, so they are great for cleaning up messes. I can clean up the mess and toss it in the trash. No germy cleaning rags left behind to wash.
When our friends got ready to leave, I handed them some coupons to get their own savings on some of the items that we used from our #RedWhiteAndBarbecue kit. They were just as thankful for the savings as they were for the time we spent together.
