THE Tailgating Game of the Season! (GIVEAWAY)

Here in the Midwest November means two things, Thanksgiving and Ohio State vs. Michigan college football game. Being so close to the Ohio Michigan border often means families are divided. So, during the border battle, you often find deeply intensified rivals.

There have been some crazy stories of Ohio State and Michigan fans going head to head but, for the most part it is a friendly rivalry.  I suppose it depends on where you decide to watch the game. But one thing is for sure, no matter where you are watching the game, or what team you are rooting for, the one thing that remains constant, GRILLING!

Perhaps you have been blessed with ticket to the game or are simply tailgating before the big show down. Maybe your neighbor, family member, or you are hosting a party. Thus, no matter where the grill may reside make certain it is accompanied by Heinz! You can forget a lawn chair, you can forget an umbrella, shoot, you can even forget your beverages, those are all forgivable by fellow tailgaters/party goers, but never, I repeat NEVER, forget the Heinz!


Heinz and Mom on the go in Holy Toledo want to make certain you do not drop the ball at your tailgating party.  So, Heinz is giving away a fun tailgating pack that includes the following:

•                    Heinz 57 Sauce, Heinz 57 Steak Sauce and Heinz 57 Sauce with Honey

•                    Grilling tools

•                    Heinz blanket

•                    Mini football

•                    Heinz tailgating book (Has Q & A to test your football IQ, Football Facts, Heinz field highlights, and recipes!)


(Over a $60 value)

The Heinz Tailgating book has some pretty amazing, mouth-watering recipes.  Here is one my family really enjoyed…


Heinz 57 Pulled Pork

Serves: 8

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 8 hours


  • 1/2 cup Heinz 57® Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Lea & Perrins® Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 medium onion, chopped, or about 2 cups
  • 3 1/2 lb. boneless pork shoulder-blade roast, trimmed and cut into 4 pieces


1. In a 5-6 quart slow cooker, mix together 57 Sauce, Worcestershire Sauce, mustard, sugar, tomato paste, and onion. Season with salt & pepper if desired. Add pork, turning until well coated. Cover and cook on low heat setting for about 8 hours, or until pork is cooked through (no longer pink or an internal temperature of 165°F) and tender, turning occasionally.

2. To serve, remove pork from slow cooker. Pull pork into shreds using two forks. Return pork to slow cooker and stir until well mixed with sauce. Serve onto your favorite sandwich buns and serve immediately.

TIP: If desired, cook on high heat setting for 4 hours, or until pork is cooked through (no longer pink or an internal temperature of 165°F) and tender, turning occasionally.

    The link for Heinz took me to your personal Facebook–just thought I’d give you a heads up in case you try to keep your personal stuff separate from your blog!

    Those food pics are making me hungry :p

    All three are done and I root for Michigan because I like Ann Arbor better lol I am not much of a sports person 😉 But Ann Arbor has a lot of great things for my little guys, the “dinesore zeeum” in particular 😀

      Oh my gosh, thank you for letting me know, I do like to keep those separate.
      I can understand why you are rooting for Michigan. Ann Arbor does have some amazing things; I lived in Ypsilanti for a couple years while I worked on my thesis at EMU. Though I did not get out too much, when I did I always enjoyed myself, there was always something going on. Even now, with the kiddos Ann Arbor has a lot to offer such as the “dinesore zeeum”, love that, lol!
      Good luck and thanks again for letting me know about the facebook link, I am off to try and fix it.

        I did my undergrad in Kalamazoo and I wish I’d taken advantage of more of the things the city had to offer! I tended to do the same things over and over lol

    I liked on Facebook, as Ashley Bedford, and followed you on twitter @bedfordnomics. I went to Penn State so I’m going to have to root for Ohio as well, since it’s geographically closer, I know nothing about football stats, and I like green better than navy blue and gold! (Hey, it’s not the best of reasons but I tried! Lol!) Digging your site, by the way!

    • November 15, 2012 at 8:50 pm #

      Ashley I love your reason for rooting for Ohio State, it totally makes sense to me, lol! Thanks for digging my site, don’t be a stranger and good luck!
