Florida Tomatoes & My Bruschetta Recipe!

brushchetta

I am a HUGE fan of tomatoes and we eat them all the time-but REALLY enjoy them during the Spring and Summer months.  Eating healthy veggies are something my husband and I strive to teach our boys, so I was excited when the Florida Tomato Committee contacted me and asked me to share their new web video series.

The Florida Tomato Committee is launching a series of engaging animated web videos that tell the story of Florida tomatoes and what makes them so good, and good for you. The six videos in the series, produced by SenaReider, will launch in March may be viewed by consumers in a variety of ways including YouTube, Florida Tomato Committee social media channels, specialty blog sites and www.floridatomatoes.org/growers.

The Florida family of tomato growers want everyone to know that they are committed to healthful and sustainable farming practices that result in the most red, ripe, nutritious and delicious tomatoes available.  We all want yummy looking tomatoes, so why not get some from a group that tries hard to provide the best tomatoes?!  My 6 year old thought this video was just hilarious!

All this tomato talk, plus the gorgeous weather we’ve been having, got me craving bruschetta so I grabbed some tomatoes and got to work!

Zaycon Foods-Chicken Review!

Zaycon Foods provided me with complimentary products. The opinions I have expressed are my own. #ad #sponsored

People are always asking me how to save money on meats and produce.  My answer—Zaycon Foods.

Zaycon Foods is a company that offers natural meats and produce that can be purchased in bulk.  Here are a few of the highlights:

  • Zaycon Foods provides fresh, high quality product, straight from our suppliers, cutting out the middle man. We only sell in bulk.
  •  We combine the buying power of many families together, enabling us to negotiate huge savings on food purchases for your family.
  • Convenient, quick, organized—about 2 minutes and you never even need to get out of your car!

You may have heard about Zaycon from Good Morning America, or you may have heard me talk about them before.  The chicken they provide is delicious and you can REALLY tell the difference.

I had the chance to review a case of Zaycon’s chicken.  A case of their meat is 40lbs-so I had A LOT of chicken! The chicken arrived “pre-butcher”, meaning it needed a little bit of cutting and trimming.

cutting chicken

Lucky for me, my husband is a pro at cutting in the kitchen so he took care of the meat in no time!  Here is a picture of the meat cut and bagged up.

I told you it is A LOT of chicken!

 

Are you wondering how to get some of this delicious product?  Easy!  Register at Zaycon Foods HERE (making sure to put that Momondealz sent you) and find out where a sales event is happening near you. All you will have to do is pull up to their trucks, pop your trunk, and your order will be put directly in your vehicle.  Check out this picture of how simple it is!

chicken pick up

The whole process will take about 5 minutes!  How great is that?

Here is a simple recipe that we use every week using our Zaycon chicken.  We cook a LOT of chicken on Sunday and use it all week for nightly recipes.  It’s simple and versatile for just about any recipe!

Ingredients:
Zaycon Chicken
