This post is sponsored by Applegate. All opinions are my own.
Applegate sent my family and I on a stress free picnic. Why was it stress free? Because I didn't have to decipher the label of each package of their cold cuts and cheeses.The ingredients were simple and natural: roasted turkey, ham, salami with provolone cheddar cheese. Antibiotic free, artificial ingredients free, and preservative free... meats and cheeses.
|"The American" Roasted Turkey with avocado, salsa, mayo and melted cheddar cheese.|
Here are the sandwiches we created using Applegate cold cuts and cheese, Rudis's multigrain gluten-free bread and Sir Kensington all natural mustard and mayonnaise.
|"The German" Black Forest Ham, mustard, sauerkraut, with melted blue cheese.|
|"The French" Smoked Turkey, mustard, apple and melted brie cheese.|
|"The Italian" Salami, roasted tomatoes, pesto, and melted provolone cheese.|
It was a fine day for a picnic... everyone was enjoying their sandwiches... everyone except our dog Lila, who felt tremendously left out!
|She was loving her new bandanna... but then she got a whiff of something?|
|The picnic is discovered.|
|Someone realizes she has been deceived. All this meat and Lila was not invited.|
|She begged me for just a taste.|
|My daughter is much kinder than me and gave Lila a piece of turkey.|
In the end everyone enjoyed the good food from Applegate.
