One thing you may not know about me is I love bowling! Like really love it. Each year when the kids go back to school I take time to indulge in my bowling passion by joining a bowling league.
I love bowling, but that does not mean I am very good at it. In fact, last year my average game for the season was 113. I bowled 3 games over 150. I did bowl a 196 once, but not at league. My league team was okay, we did not come in last for the season, nor did we come in first. Solidly in the middle. My kids love that I bowl, and often want to go with me. So I thought a bowling themed food art would be just the thing to surprise them with as a back-to-school lunch!
And because I have 4 kids, I was able to make a few different scenes!
California Ripe Olives are perfect for food art. They can be used in so many ways, and provide a pop of color, a great texture, and of course amazing flavor! I had such a hard time deciding how to use them, I actually made the kid friendly version, and my more grown up version, using an egg-salad sandwich recipe I will share next week, and cutting the bread into pins! So fun! Don’t you think these would be perfect to take to the bowling league luncheon?
California Ripe Olives are the perfect pantry staple, and so fun for creating creative food art during this back to school season. I know after a long day at school my kids love coming home and creating and cooking with me, and California Ripe Olives are the ideal food to do it with. Their little fingers fit right in, and they love popping them in their mouths for a snack while we create!
And, what is more, California Ripe Olives are grown on over 1,000 multigenerational family farms that crisscross the warm inland valleys of California and processed by two family-owned canneries. I love that these are not some huge conglomerate, but rather a family owned and operated business. And guess what? They are giving away an Amazon Kindle Fire HDX!
To enter, you can visit the Sweepstakes with this link, or head over to Facebook, and follow California Ripe Olives, then visit the custom tab that says “Sweepstakes” on their page. You can enter once per day from Aug 18 – September 12 for a chance to win the Kindle Fire HDX!
So head over and enter so you could win, and read, browse, and enjoy yourself while your kids are at school. I know I will certainly enjoy some bowling, as well as a little free time, which would be much improved with an Amazon Kindle Fire HDX! By the way, my sis was like, “Uh, what’s that?” to the thing with the carrot sticking out. It is the ball return peeps! I promise.
