#HormelFamily February Blogger box

**sadly I am a week an a half behind due to multiple sick kids and myself**

As stated before I was recently invited into the #HormelFamily program and this could not have been a better time for my family. Hormel has been a name around for more than 120 years and the "family" is tied into many products YOU and I use on a daily basis. Each month I receive a variety of products centered around different themes they provide for me (this one was pepperoni recipes for Feb). These are just some of the products in the #HormelFamily that you just might see on your table or in your pantry.

This month featured The Skippy Natural Dark Chocolate spread and my kids are HUGE fans of Chocolate and Peanut Butter. It is creamy and no need to stir yourself for that fantastic choco-PB sandwich and a little strawberry jelly and yummy sandwich is on the plate. Have you even dipped apples in peanut butter? This just might be your new favorite:) First ingredient on the label is : Peanut Butter Spread we know that means it is good. Now look at that happy face and tell me its not good!!
 Another product I received this month was one I was completely unaware of or I would have tried for myself. The Hormel Snackers is a dip for chips that is microwavable in 60 seconds, rest for 30 seconds and ready to eat. I kind of giggled when I saw it is an 8 per serving because if not careful you might eat the whole thing. I did receive the Southwestern Style Nacho Dip(tomatos, bell peppers and spices) and as much as I wanted it for chips I felt it was safer for a taco topping instead. I feel this is pretty versatile for whatever you use it for chips, tacos, burritos I think anything that needs cheese.
The next things is Hormel REAL Bacon Bits and who does not LOVE BACON!!! The uses are endless salads, potatoes, casseroles...breakfast, lunch, dinner ..ANYTIME!! I chose to use mine in a Cauliflower Casserole but they can be used anywhere that you need that bit of salty perfection.
Casserole is super easy:
**oven to 425**
1 head of Cauliflower(boiled to soften)-8-10 minutes
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 sour cream
2cups cheese(any kind will do)-1cup before cooking 1 cup before serving
salt&pepper to taste
Hormel Bacon bits(enough to suit your taste)
(I used a small can of sliced mushrooms for texture)

While cauliflower is softening, mix the other ingredients in a bowl. Once cauliflower is done add it to the creamy mixture, mix well. Spray a 8x10 cooking dish spread cauliflower cream mixture out and bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven put last cup of cheese over top and serve.

*Clorox**S.O.S Pads*

America's #1 most versatile cleaning product and I can honestly say these have been in my home since I was a child.S.O.S from the makers of Clorox products. I remember these steel wool pieces sitting counter-top after a messy dinner, as a child thinking what in the world is that for. These were used for pots, pans and stoves but as they have evolved they are soap filled and so more useful in any home.

They cut through grease and grime, remove baked on messes(as the commercial states) and no need to apply dish soap(because its already in there. I use these on my pyrex glassware often because even with cooking spray the mess is still there.

 Recently I learned how handy S.O.S were in other rooms of the house, including the bathroom. Just think tub, tiles and linoleum and you understand the messes that can be related. Soap scum is no match for an S.O.S pad in your bathtub. Those glass doors in the shower looking a little worn and dingy pull out an S.O.S soap pad to make them shiny and new.

Do you BBQ? If you do, these work great at getting off that stuck on grime that your meat leaves behind. Use it on the tools to pretty them up and it works well around the handles of tools to get that hidden stuck on pieces.

Don't forget the car!! The S.O.S pads works to clean the tires and wheels, bumper scuffs and even the headlight covers that become discolored from sun or seasonal damage. Did you see that bug on the windshield? Remove it with an S.O.S pad, no scratch to glass, no worry.

Super easy to use:
Wet pad with water, scrub your item and rinse clean. *how easy is that!!*
When finished with pad remove particles that get stuck and wedged in pad and allow to air dry. To dry I recommend places on a piece of aluminum foil to prevent the rusting while sitting on a damp area.
