A Betty Tradition // GIVEAWAY!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!! — the holidays!! I seriously don’t even know who I’ve become over these last few months. I’ve never been this pumped up about the holiday season!

Well, due to the recent concerns surrounding my health and the health of Baby Girl, Chad + I decided to cancel our plans to travel to Columbus Thanksgiving Day. That meant that we didn’t spend the holidays surrounded by tons of family. But that’s okay. Because Chad & I are creating our own traditions, complete with turkey and a mashed potato side dish! Cause that’s really all that matters for Thanksgiving, right!?

Between doctor appointments and work schedules, it was a busy week. So we are planned on keeping the holiday super low-key. Easy was the name of the game! Chad made a smoked turkey and I was in charge of the side dishes! Most important? Mashed potatoes. Obviously. The only problem is, I had other things to cook, too. So instead of laboring over potatoes, I used Betty Crocker Potatoes!

Not only does it save time, but Betty Crocker Potatoes are 100% real potatoes, farmed right here in the United States! I keep a packet or box on hand just in case of dinner emergencies (AKA nearly every night), but this time I planned on mixing a pouch with some green onions and bacon!

They turned out amazing. A wonderful addition to our Thanksgiving feast — even if this child did only allow me to eat a tablespoon of each item! You can use this coupon to save $.50 off two packages of Betty Crocker potatoes!

In addition, one lucky reader will win a Betty Crocker Pototoes prize pack valued at $50!! Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter!

Sometimes low-key is the way to go! Hope you got a nice mix of fun and rest over the holiday.

Smoked turkey sounds divine, btw!

I’m a baker so I’m baking – cookies, cupcakes, cakes for cakepops, brownies, etc.

My wife has a tradition of sending cookies to everyone as a gift. My sister is the same way. We actually stock up on supplies throughout the year when they are on sale because she makes so much. I bet I have 40 bags of baking chips in our freezer, from chocolate to butterscotch.

Since my son is older, we have enjoyed picking out a live tree to bring home.

One of our holiday traditions is baking a holiday treat and we lay all of the treats out on the table. You have to put it on the table secretly so no one else knows who made it. Then we make a guessing game out of it and try to figure out who made what treat.
