This post brought to you by Mrs. Smith’s . All opinions are 100% mine.
I'd always baked my own holiday pies until I started working at home. No time for that anymore! So I bought Mrs. Smith’s pies (apple and cherry!) last year, and wow, the cherry especially was terrific! Not too bad for a boxed pie. I think the Mrs. Smith's brand is much better than those cardboard-y bakery pies at the grocery store.
The pie meisters at Mrs. Smoth's are going all-out this holiday season. They have got a "microsite" where you can send a holiday e-card for the holidays. That's a very nice feature for folks in the military who might not get the mail in time. And it's also helpful for those of us who, um, forget to buy stamps and mail the Christmas cards in time…. so if you fall into that category, please feel free to join me in the fun, haha! If you send an e-card, you and the recipient will get a coupon for $1 off any Mrs. Smith's or Edwards whole pies, via email! How is that for being generous! There are only teo cards from which to choose but I think they are classy, especially the blue one with snow falling around a deer silhouette. What can be better with cherry pie than fresh venison, hmm?
Also, the Mrs. Smith's folks are eager to help military families during this time by participating in Operation Homefront. Itr's an organization dedicated to providing food and grocery card gift certificates to military families in need, a very, very worthy cause. Mrs. Smith's donated pies to Operation Homefront for Thanksgiving, how cool is that? And for every pie WE buy in November and December, the company will donate $1 to OH. I don't know about you, but I do prefer to buy my stuff from a company that dedicates resources to helping others in need. So, Mrs. Smith's rocks in more ways than cherry and apple.
