Welcome to our July & August 2021 Newsletter! 

 

Wow, we are 6 months into 2021! The year seems to be flying by, and good news finally, Covid cases are finally on the decline & vaccinations are on the rise. Summer and grilling season has arrived, hopefully if we are all vigilant with keeping up covid protocol, it will be a summer spent back with family and friends!  Stay Safe!! 

Gifting is more popular than ever! We provide contact free delivery, extreme care and in house precautions during these challenging times.

With everyone avoiding personal contact, gift baskets or care packages can be one of the favorite means to show appreciation to front line workers, loved ones in quarantine, and sympathy for the loss of a loved one. Babies are still being born, people are still moving into new homes, and Birthday's are still happening as well. The world has not stopped, why not make their day special!

Here are Great Reasons to give a gift basket! Be Grateful, Thankful, Appreciative, Caring & Supportive.

Pulled Pork!

Makes 10 sandwiches or 20 sliders. Perfect for Summer!

Ingredients:

Pulled Pork Seasoning (available with A Treasured Gift) as shown in picture, 5 lbs Pork shoulder, 1.5 cups BBQ Sauce, 10 burger or 20 slider buns.

All you do is generously rub pork with seasoning, cover and refrigerate for 12-24 hours, cook uncovered in roasting pan for 4 hours at 300F, cover and cook for another 1.5 hours, remove from oven and rest for 15 minutes.  Using tongs or shredding claws (from A Treasured Gift) pull the pork into shreds and place in a bowl. Moisten the pork while still hot with 1 cup of BBQ sauce. Serve the heated meat on a fresh bun with extra sauce on the side, add coleslaw & a pickle.
