With all the hustle & bustle of the holiday season, I have a great suggestion for Making the Holidays Easier when Visiting Grandma. Just one stop, that’s it!
Making the Holidays Easier when Visiting Grandma
December is here and I certainly don’t have to tell anyone how incredibly fast it seems to fly by. We all have calendars simply jammed packed with all sorts of events and holiday festivities. It is truly such a fabulous time of the year, isn’t it?
This year for our family the holiday season is even busier than normal. Not only is one of our older daughters graduating from college 10 hours away, can you say road trip to northern Michigan in December? But her wedding is also happening on the first weekend of 2020. And in between is a little thing called “Christmas”! Yup, my mantra at the moment is “just breathe and enjoy the ride”!
There are certain visits that simply have to be made during the busiest and most festive of seasons. For our family, this includes visiting the grandparents on both sides of our family. My mom lives in a wonderful senior center a few towns away from us. She has an adorable apartment that she transforms into a Christmas wonderland every holiday season. My youngest daughters love visiting and seeing grandmas’ decorations.
With all that is happening in December in such a short amount of time, I decided to make our visit easy on everyone. For me, this meant a quick trip into my local Meijer store. I wanted to buy an appetizer to bring over to moms, one that was complete and ready to enjoy. I found exactly what I was searching for in the deli area of Meijer. In the refrigerated cases, I picked up this gem: Hillshire® Snacking Social Platters: Genoa Salame & Calabrese Salame.
A precut selection of delicious flavors is found within Hillshire® Snacking Social Platters. This one contained Calabrese Salame, Genoa Salame, White Cheddar, Sea Salt Toasted Rounds, Dried Cranberries and Cherries. I was immediately sold! This was exactly what I was hoping to find.
To make our visit to grandma complete, we picked up a bottle of sparkling apple cider so all could enjoy a fun seasonal beverage. And of course, a bouquet of flowers to brighten grandma’s day. It was a completely simple and fuss-free shopping trip to Meijer.

Having a fuss-free appetizer, made our visit relaxing. Hillshire® Snacking Social Platters are ideal for impromptu visits both at home and away.

You simply “Flip and Serve”, which allows your party to begin instantly! I can see us picking up Hillshire® Snacking Social Platters for so many occasions, not only do they taste great but are so convenient. We poured some sparkling apple cider for all and got busy enjoying our visit.
