Tastefully Simple

If you've never heard of Tastefully Simple I suggest you click the link now (just make sure you come back). If you have heard of it then you know what I am about say.

There products are truly awesome!

I had my first taste a few years ago when a friend of mine had a party and I was instantly hooked. I have yet to taste one of their products that I didn't like and that's saying allot because I am very picky eater. The other thing that makes these products so good is how simple they are to prepare. They only require two or three ingredients and very little time to make.

For instance when you make there Bountiful Beer Bread you add a can of beer (or soda), some water and some butter, then bake. It can't get much easier than that and it taste amazing by itself or with any of their dips. My favorite being the Bacon Bacon dip which is also great in salads, baked potatoes and in Hamburgers.

So why am I sharing all of this with you. Simple, I went to a friends party a few weeks ago and ordered my usual Beer Bread and Bacon Bacon but I also picked up a few of there summer products of Mango Margarita Slush, and Samba Sangria Slush. I had tasted the Mango Margarita at a Purse Party the weekend before so I knew that was awesome but I had not tried the Sangria.

Again these drinks are so easy to make, all you have to do is add some water and alchol with the mix they provide. The original recipe for the Sangria is 2 750 ml bottles of any red wine and 1 1/2 cups of warm water. If you noticed on Tastefully Simples website they have a recipe tab where they give you ideas on how to use their products. While I was on there the other day I noticed an alternative recipe that used two bottles of Arbor Mist Blackberry Merlot and at the party the consultant said it was really good if you used one bottle of wine and one bottle of champagne. Well I took both those ideas and used a bottle of Arbor Mist and a bottle of champagne. Once it was all mixed together I stuck in the freezer so it was all frozen and slushy by the time Dave and I got home form seeing the Dark Knight and we opened it up.

One word for you AAAAAAmazing!!!!

This stuff tasted so amazingly good, you can't taste the alchol in it at all but let me tell you you can feel it after a few glasses. Dave and I really enjoyed this and it certainly made the coin counting fun.

The only problem here is this is a Summer product and is about to be discontinued so if you trust my word hurry and order it now before it's to late.

I love TS too! There's actually a party this week that I wanted to go to... no more with this cold (how would the party-goers like tasting next to someone with a sneeze & runny nose?!), my work schedule, and my empty bank account. :( Love that beer bread... it's so yummy and comforting.
