Hormel Gatherings Party Trays - Joy in a Tray, and So Easy!

 I received free product in exchange for my honest review. My opinions and protein cravings are my own.

In my household, a meat-and-cheese tray is a staple. Constructing them, however, is a major chore. Cutting the cheese isn't just a social faux pas, it's also hard on the hands. That's why I love me some Hormel Gatherings Party Trays!
They're so portable, and set up in just a moment, perfect for those sports parties you can't stop going to, or even just lounging around.
I was able to gift one to my husband's gaming group as well. Casual and fabulous.
The meat and cheeses are so fresh, and are all packaged in separate bags, so the flavors don't mingle until you want them to. And they do combine SO well.
Those who bring the meats, get the fans, and Hormel Gatherings Party Trays take all the pain and strain out of the process, so even if your team isn't a winner, you are! I personally think they're priced right, too, having bought the ingredients separately many times. Also, taking care of leftovers (if there are any!) just means snapping the lid back on. The time savings is absolutely priceless. So get one already!

New Challenge: Box Sherman Tank!

So, we did this for my son's birthday.

Apparently, if one has a box fort, one requires a vehicle as well. My son cheerfully informed me that I should now attempt to create a tank. Not just any tank, but a Sherman tank. And it has to be able to move, and have a working cannon. In case you didn't know off the top of your head, this is what a Sherman looks like.

So, I needed a framework to start with, because I lack the skills to start from scratch. I used our wagon. Pic courtesy of Amazon, because I didn't think to take one pre-project.

Here's the result.
