So along with my usual delicious recipe lineups and personal challenges here at More Than Burnt Toast the "child in me" will be ripping off the wrappers of many gifts in the days to come and sharing them with you. First of all I received a beautiful fresh wreath to grace my door for the 16th ready to create a spectacularly fresh and fragrant holiday entrance. It is the perfect reminder that Christmas is indeed looming and for those of you who haven't started getting Christmas gift ideas together for friends and family... what's stopping 'ya....wink....wink.
President's Choice is offering an array of outdoor holiday arrangements, wreaths and garlands all guaranteed to be made with 100% Canadian fresh assorted evergreens. They are complete with bright red holiday berries, a red velvet bow and local pine cones. Bright green and fragrant greenery will greet your guests all through the holiday season. Channel your anticipation for the holiday season by starting to decorate, plan your party foods and enjoy a few quiet weekends before the parties begin. I can never start thinking about Christmas too early!
Now to continue with those gifts!They discovered these spectacular cashews in Northeastern Brazil and jumped at the chance to bring them to your home. Selected for their sweetness and crunch, they're graded by hand to ensure that each one is eye-poppingly large. Then they're slowly dry roasted, lightly tossed in canola oil and salted. Mix up a festive holiday trail mix with dried berries, seeds and these jumbo cashew nuts as a main event in themselves.
Today is the 18th and I have just opened another package. "On the third day of Presidents Choice Christmas the company gave to me Bakers Gift Loaf Pans." I love these!!!!! You get 6 oven-safe silicone coated paper loaf pans that are more than perfect for gift giving. Give your home baking a special touch with these great looking giftable loaf pans. Simply bake your loaf right in the pan, let it cool, tie the ribbon around it and your delicious homemade gift is ready for giving. Why fight throngs of shoppers when you can create fabulous, personal gifts from the comfort of your own kitchen? Gift-baking is this year's tastiest trend. Bake a delicious Nutella Swirl Poundcake, Blood Orange Olive Oil Cake, or an English Muffin Loaf to slice and toast on Christmas morning for gift giving.
Stay tuned to see what else we received from President's Choice over the next few weeks. Ho, ho, ho.....
And the gift keeps giving! What I love about President's Choice is their involvement in another charitable organization with their role as President's Choice® Children’s Charity . They have increased their support to Breakfast for Learning to $7.2 million. Breakfast for Learning provides nutrition programs to help children and youth across the country receive healthy breakfasts, lunches and snacks to help fuel a better learning environment. Way to keep the holiday spirit going all year round!
