It never fails with the start of the new year. An inundation of paperwork to sign, and then…at the bottom of the pile of IMPORTANT papers is the paper that has the ‘F’ word. You know the ‘F’ word that parents hate to hear when it comes to their child and school. That one ‘F’ word that brings on a dread in the pit of your stomach, and makes you hate the person who has their signature neatly scrolled on the bottom after thanking you warmly for your participation. Fundraising. You know you hate it. Just admit. Good thing there are Campbell’s Labels for Education and that they come on items that you already purchase from the store. Like Campbell’s Soup! All you have to is activate your cutting and/or ripping powers.
I’ll admit it, I was the fundraising chair for Nathaniel’s elementary school, and still kind of help them on the side. It was like pulling teeth to get money for our already budget tight school, but with programs like Labels for Education, it helped ease the pain a bit. No more knocking on doors, or carrying around a fundraising sheet, selling rolls of holiday print wrapping paper to your Nana and Mor Mor baby. This way, parents were able to shop, and clip, and then send off to the school so that they can purchase items for the success of the students.
Campbell’s Labels for Education is also hosting a Sweepstakes where 1000 schools will win $1000! Has your school entered? I’m sure that if you are online right now, reading this fantastic post about how you can do your part in fundraising just by doing what you are doing – browsing the internet for the best content ever AND grocery shopping – then you can take the time to enter your school into the sweepstakes.
If you think that you’ll have to only buy soup in order to participate, think again. Campbell’s Labels for Education comes on the likes of Pepprideg Farm Goldfish Crackers, Peppridge Farm cookies, Prego, Pop Secret, Bic and other participating brands. So, not only can you give your family awesome brands during dinner time, or even for school supplies, you can knock out fundraising as well. Any busy mom or dad will be grateful for that.
Now, when you think recipes to create with all of these items, what comes to mind? I mean, you can always have spaghetti or lasagna with the Prego sauce, or an awesome dessert with Peppridge Farm cookies, but why not a chicken dish with rice, and broccoli for those fall days that are sneaking up on us? I looked at the forecast for the rest of the week, and we’re going to be in the 60’s! I’m excited to just have those hot hearty meals for my family! How about you? Here’s my recipe for a Creamy Chicken Bake that you can whip up in no time, and have your family thinking that you really worked for hours on it.
5 Chicken quarters or 10 chicken drumsticks
1 can of Cream of Chicken Soup
1/4 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup of milk
Seasonings of your choice. I used garlic, seasoning salt, and black pepper.
Cook for 40-55 minutes in a 325 degree oven, and serve OVER rice with the sauce as a gravy. Add broccoli, or glazed carrots for a great side, and you have a meal that is not only satisfying, but a money make for your school! You can also mix pesto into the sauce for a more savory taste.
