Walkers Shortbread

Celebrate National Shortbread Day

with Walkers Shortbread

Did you know that National Shortbread Day is on January 6th? Celebrate National Shortbread Day with Walkers Shortbread. How will you celebrate? Will you indulge in a few fingers, rounds, or petticoat tails?

This is created in partnership with Walkers Shortbread. All opinions expressed are completely my own.

Walkers Shortbread

A Girl Rocks Life is pleased to announce we are a member of The Walkers Shortbread Society. Are you wondering what the Walkers Shortbread Society is? The Shortbread Society is an exclusive group of bloggers with a common delicious interest: Walkers Shortbread. As a member of the Shortbread Society, we will learn more about Walkers, their new products and share our feedback with YOU and with Walkers. Expect to see more post’s featuring Walkers Shortbread.

Walkers Shortbread

Walkers Shortbread is a family owned company that started in 1898, in the village of Aberlour, Speyside, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands and remains there to this day. By baking in small batches, using the same simple recipe that founder Joseph Walker created, ensures that classic taste for which Walkers are famed. Made with only four ingredients: flour, pure creamery butter, sugar, and salt. Walkers products contain absolutely NO Artificial flavorings, colors, or preservatives. Which, as a consumer, I appreciate.

I love shortbread cookies. It’s something about the simplicity of the ingredients that create a uniquely sweet flavor. Every bite of a Walkers Shortbread cookie creates a moment of indulging in a scrumptious treat.

Walkers bakes an extensive selection of pure butter shortbread in a variety of flavors and sizes. My personal favorites are the Shortbread Fingers, Shortbread Rounds, Chocolate Chip Shortbread and a few others. Every pure butter shortbread of Walkers has a perfect, crumbly texture, that melts-in-your-mouth.

  • The Shortbread Fingers are baked in a square and cut into “fingers”.
  • The Shortbread Rounds are traditional shortbread adorned with the Scottish thistle.
  • The Chocolate Chip Shortbread is a timeless delight. Traditional shortbread and luscious chunks of dark chocolate create a certain indulgence in a real treat.

Save on Walkers Shortbread

Celebrate National Shortbread Day with Walkers Shortbread and you can save. You can get free shipping and a free tin of shortbread with code SBDAY17. Don’t miss out this deal will not last long!

Discover A New Holiday Tradition At Frisch’s

Discover a New Holiday Tradition at Frisch’s Big Boy this year. Recently, I was invited to dinner at Frisch’s and to a performance of the Nutcracker, presented by the Cincinnati Ballet, at the Aronoff Center. Little did I know at the time, that I will discover a new holiday tradition for my family and friends to enjoy.

At Frisch’s we ate a sampling of their holiday dinner menu items; Carved Turkey, Country Fried Chicken, Roast Beef, Country Fried Steak, and Meatloaf. Served with Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Rich Gravy, and Farm Fresh Green Beans. Served up family style, since we had a bunch of my blogger friends from the area attending as well. It’s hard to choose a favorite since I liked them all. All dinners are available for $7.99.

Check out how delicious these dinners look in the picture below.

A New Holiday Tradition

For dessert, we were introduced to the new Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake. Frisch’s classic dessert, the Hot Fudge Cake, has received a holiday twist. If you love the original hot fudge cake, then you will definitely be in love with the peppermint hot fudge cake. Put it this way; I am not a fan of peppermint and I loved the Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake. The ice cream is the perfect sweetness. The peppermint chips sprinkled atop the whipped cream with cherry, is not overpowering as some peppermints can be. It is the perfect combination of ice cream layered between warm chocolate cake, hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry sprinkled with candy cane bits, for the just a hint of peppermint crunch in every bite. Chef Greg did a great job putting a holiday twist on the classic hot fudge cake.

Discover a New Holiday Tradition

The Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake is available for a limited time (until Feb. 7). This is the first time since the original dessert debuted in 1970, that it has been offered in another flavor. Don’t worry all you original Hot Fudge Cake fans out there, it’s still available in restaurants. Both the original and the limited edition peppermint hot fudge cake are $3.29.

The Nutcracker

When dinner was over, we were off to see a performance of The Nutcracker, performed by the Cincinnati Ballet, at the Aronoff Center. From the very first performance of The Nutcracker in 1974, Frisch’s has been proud to be the Ballet’s primary sponsor. Wow! That is a long time for a corporation to sponsor an event. In fact, it is one of the longest-lasting examples of corporate sponsorship in American Arts history. Frisch’s Big Boy presents The Nutcracker runs Dec. 9-18, at the Aronoff Center.

Before the show, we were able to meet with some of the ballerinas and the Nutcracker. At showtime, I quickly found my seat and settled in to watch the performance. We were surprised at the end of the show with autographs from the dancers. I really enjoyed the performance and had a wonderful evening out on the town courtesy of Frisch’s Big Boy. Another bonus of the evening, when we were leaving the ushers gave us a coupon for a free peppermint hot fudge cake at Frisch’s. Woo Hoo!! More Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake, YUMM!

Hurry!! Get to Frisch’s before Feb. 7, to try the new peppermint hot fudge cake before it is gone for good.

How Will You #LightTheWorld

How Will You #LightTheWorld

This Holiday Season?

 

How Will You #LightTheWorld

How Will You #LightTheWorld? The holiday season is here. It’s time for trimming the tree, shopping for gifts, and hosting or attending a holiday party with family and friends. Let’s not forget the reason for the season. During Christmas, we are reminded that Jesus Christ is the light of the world. This year we can share that light, by resolving to do the things that Jesus did. How will you #LightTheWorld this holiday season?

A Girl Rocks Life has partnered with Mormon.org to bring you this post. All opinions expressed are my own.

Starting on the Worldwide Day of Service on December 1st, and every day leading up to Christmas, Morman.org will focus on a different Christ-like behavior in the #LightTheWorld in 25 Ways, Over 25 Days. They will highlight ways we can emulate his example. Jesus did many things to help an individual. It takes just one person’s act of kindness to make a difference in someone’s life.  I’m choosing to share my #LightTheWorld act of kindness that I did earlier this year.

#LightTheWorld Day 7

Jesus Fed the Hungry and So Can You

Earlier this year, I was really busy with work and life, in general, was very hectic. I rarely had a moment to myself, let alone get on social media unless it was for work. I did not have time to check my personal Facebook news feed. After weeks, if not a month of not checking the updates on my news feed, I finally had a moment and checked my feed. Since Facebook has changed up their algorithms, I rarely see posts from actual family and friends. But on this particular day, I was seeing updates from old friends.

As I’m scrolling through my feed, a post caught my eye. It wasn’t a video or a picture of a cute family moment. It was a simple update of what someone was eating. We see posts like this all the time. A picture of a meal that someone ordered from their favorite restaurant, a favorite recipe we cooked for our family, or just asking for suggestions on what to cook for dinner.

This post simply stated,

“ok, you know you’re broke and out of food when you eat salmon rice and mac & cheese for dinner, but hey I’m eating lol.”

I read that post a few times and clicked to read the comments. Some were snarky remarks, and others were sympathetic, but no one really offered help. Unfortunately, I couldn’t do anything at the moment; I had to get back to work, until next time, when I get a moment to check social media. Throughout the day, that post kept popping into my head. That night I was talking to my husband about the day. I mentioned the post that had been popping into my head all day.

Jesus Fed the Hungry and So Am I

He smiled and said, “it’s bothering you because we have been there, and you don’t want to see anyone go without the most basic of needs, like food. You know what you need to do, we are ok at the moment financially, so do what needs to be done.” I got on Facebook and commented on the post that had been bothering me all day. I simply commented for her to check her private messages.

#LightTheWorld

She messaged me back that she had been downsized from her company, and was trying to make ends meet until her last check arrived in 5 days. Until then she didn’t know what to do with empty cupboards. I wanted to help in any way I could, but I live a few hours away from where I grew up, and she still lived. We agreed to meet up at a Walmart half way between where the two of us live.

I purchased more than a week’s worth of groceries for her and her daughter. I spent more money on her than I spend on my weekly grocery bill, feeding a family of four. I wanted to make sure that there was enough food to last a while, just-in-case the money she had been waiting on did not come when she expected it to. As we walked the aisles of the grocery store, we caught up on the past 20 years since we last saw each other.

I Will #LightTheWorld, Will You?

You’re probably thinking why would you help someone who you have not seen in 20 years. I may not have had day-to-day contact with this person, but I did see what was happening in her life through social media and our mutual friends. It does not matter if you are a friend or a stranger, if I have the means to help someone, I will. After grocery shopping, I had given her gas money to make the trip home. She wanted to pay me back when she could in the next few weeks. I told her to Pay It Forward when she could.

#LightTheWorld

Find Your Own Way to Serve

My point is it doesn’t take much to help someone. It takes one simple act of kindness to make a difference in someone’s life. Whether we realize it at the time or not. Jesus fed others and so can you. You don’t have to go as drastic as buying a week’s worth of groceries for someone like I did. There are many other ways you can emulate what Jesus did.

  • Donate non-perishable items to your local food bank.
  • Volunteer to serve a meal at your local homeless shelter.
  • Do you know someone on a tight budget? Perhaps an elderly relative, a friend, or a neighbor. Invite them over for dinner.
  • Donate gently used clothes to a charity or thrift store.
  • Collect toiletry items and winter items for the local homeless shelter.
  • Teach a child something that your grandparents taught you.
  • Point out a virtue in someone who they don’t see themselves.
