Thanksgiving Menu Thoughts

It is Fun Food Friday.  Yesterday, I ran up to the market to purchase our "Date Night" cuisine.  I confess I got a bit distracted while at the store.  Before going to the store, we talked about Thanksgiving so it was still on my mind when I got there.  I began looking around for ideas for our Thanksgiving menu.  On a box of beef broth, I noticed that it said Distributed by, but nothing about made in U.S.A. or product of U.S.A.  This is where the distraction stepped in.  I checked several well known brand name items and no made in the U.S.A.  Surely, I could find something in this market that was made in the U.S.A.  Alas, I did.  Here's the list of some that I found:
  • King Arthur All Purpose and Whole Wheat flours - "Milled from 100% USA wheat."  Yay!   
  • Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk, yep you got it - Product of U.S.A. 
  • PET Evaporated Milk - Product of U.S.A.
  • Carnation Evaporated Milk also Product of U.S.A.  
  • Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil stamped its "Foil made in U.S.A." seal right on front.
After an aisle or two of searching for U.S.-made products, I did remember that I had a date to get to.  My husband cooked us a wonderful meal.  We ended up eating and then cuddling with the kids.  I know, I know.  What kind of date is that?  We joked about it, thinking that these moments are priceless and as long as we have them, hold on to them - the moment and the kids.  Go hug your loved ones!

By the way, my purchase created another 70,514 jobs.  (See this previous post to see where that figure came from.)
