Well, I did just that last week and had a blast. I met some very nice bloggers, including the quite Amazing Hannah Keeley. Talking to Hannah about my own dinner issues was great – she gave me some great ideas, and not for one moment did she make me feel like I was any less of a mom than her (even though she is totally SuperMom – I swear, she is. Also? Tall and thin and gorgeous).
After we talked to Hannah and had some yummy appetizers, we brought out all the items for our care packages – there were tons of Libby’s products, family calendars, activities to get families to the table, recipes, and lots of cooking utensils and gadgets. Each of these care packages will go to a family moving into their new Habitat for Humanity home.
I have to tell you – one of the reasons I was intrigued by Libby’s Back to the Table campaign is that my own family struggles with finding time to sit down together. We don’t eat as healthy as I would like, either. I know many of you are in the same boat as me, as far as having busy schedules, and long commutes, and work, and insanity. So Libby’s is giving me a chance to have a giveaway. one lucky commenter will win a nice prize, including a reusable grocery bag, Libby’s product, and this cool can opener.
All you have to do is leave a comment with your best tip for getting your family back to the table – whether it’s how to keep communicating, dinner activities, getting help from your family, meal ideas, etc. I want to hear them all!
You get bonus entries (1 each) for following Libby’s on twitter, fanning them on facebook, or creating a profile on the virtual can drive. Just leave another comment for each one, with a link to the tweet/profile/etc.
I’ll leave it open until Wednesday, since the weekend is just beginning and you folks – unlike me – have lives and do things other than chauffeur and drink and piss around on the internet on the weekend.
