On the Road in May

May The Road to Domestication

Less than 7 months until Christmas, y’all.

I’m sorry – I couldn’t resist.

Can you believe that today is JUNE 1?! (It’s also the beginning of hurricane season, which is a big deal for us in Florida. And since the painters literally finished painting the outside of our house on Friday, I’m not sure whether we’re totally smart – since everything is nicely sealed now – or totally gonna have an insurance claim on our hands – and have to pay for new paint all over again! I guess we’ll find out…)

Anyway…today is the day we find out the top five posts here on the blog for the month of May! Let’s see…

Stubbs Review & GIVEAWAY!

**PLEASE NOTE: While Stubb’s DID provide me with this product to review at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**

I’m a huge fan of most anything Stubb’s. Ever since I discovered that their products have no HFCS, no gluten, and are also free of MSG, I’ve been a loyal customer! But probably my FAVORITE thing about Stubb’s is their awesome variety! Marinades, sauces, rubs and cookin’ sauces, you really can’t go wrong, and you absolutely could eat for weeks using just their products and still not be bored!

I also love the story of how Stubb’s became the company it is today. It started with Stubb, a mess sergeant in the United States Army, moved on to open a restaurant, and it only gets better from there! If you want to know the whole tale, CLICK HERE! (It’s a good one!)

Today, I decided to use one of their marinades! I had used their steak marinade before, but I decided it was time to test out their chicken option:

Stubb's BBQ Chicken Marinade (Citrus & Onion)

Their chicken flavor is Citrus & Onion, and it smells amazing right out of the jar, first off! Another thing I love, as you can tell from the photo above, is that you can literally SEE how many awesome ingredients are packed into a bottle of Stubb’s! (If you’d like to marinate beef or pork, look for their Soy, Garlic & Red Pepper or Chiles, Lime & Ginger marinades!)

Stubb’s Review & GIVEAWAY!

**PLEASE NOTE: While Stubb’s DID provide me with this product to review at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**

Everybody loves BBQ, right? Especially this time of the year! One of our favorite things to do (especially over the weekend) is get a few choice cuts from the store and GRILL! Since BBQ is my hubby’s favorite, we tend to lean in that direction a lot. We’ve used a variety of products, however, up until a few weeks ago, I had never even heard of Stubb’s.

Stubb’s is a company out of Texas, started in 1968 as the legendary Stubb’s Bar-B-Q restaurant by C.B. Stubblefield…”Stubb” for short! Today, Stubb’s not only includes the restaurant (now located in Austin, Texas) but also 6 sauces, 4 marinades, 2 injectable marinades, 5 rubs, a moppin’ sauce and a wing sauce, all of which you can find in your local grocery store!
