Since I host Thanksgiving…this year Darrick and I have decided to make only what we eat. For the holiday we usually make an abundance of food, we send some home with family, some is frozen, and so believe it or not goes to waste!
This year is all about the cartons…Become Carton Smart this year…
Cartons are made with NO PRESERVATIVES, NO TINNY TASTE (from cans) and LESS WASTE!
This is right on time!!!
Reasons why you want to become Carton Smart this year…
When the holidays come around I try a few recipes beforehand to see how we like them! When I received the box of Pumpkin Puree I wasnt sure what to do with it! I ended up combining Carrot Cake Box Cake Mix with Pumpkin Puree…I made it into a Bundt Cake and topped it with Whipped Cream Cheese Icing. Instead of using Pumpkin out of the can I used pumpkin puree in a carton…small changes will not only have a big impact on the amount you are using but help you to make better choices for our environment!
Yum…now I must take some to my mom because after all the Bundt Cake was her pan!! LOL!
She should let me have it! LOL!
I got great reviews for this recipe!
I will probably try this around the holidays but not necessarily for Thanksgiving! I mixed the Chicken Stock with Barbeque Sauce and to make pulled chicken in the crock pot!
We have been eating on this for the past couple of days!
I also received some Cranberry Sauce but I am going to save it for the holidays! We usually make meatballs…and if you are familiar with the Crock Pot recipe of putting jelly and chili sauce in there to give them flavor we do that but instead of jelly we use Cranberry Sauce…gives it a little kick!
I liked using the cartons…actually they would be a lot better in my pantry to store rather than cans! I will probably be using more cartons during the holidays while cooking!
A Little Info about Cooking with Cartons…
Cartons use 1/3 of the packaging compared to cans
