Friends that are there when things are not quite as fun/easy/good as they usually are.
A partner that takes care of you when you stuck in bed with the flu.
A colleague that always has your back (and a sneaky bar of chocolate in his/her drawer for when nothing else will do).
A neighbour that’s always happy to keep an eye on your little ones when you need to pop to the store.
A concierge that makes sure none of your parcels ever get send back to the post office.
Nice, kind, supportive people all around.
We all have a lot to be thankful for, but in the rush of life, giving thanks can be a challenge.
I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but there’s something about the message behind this typically American holiday that deeply touches me. Giving thanks & giving back is something we should all do more of.
And what better to show gratitude than the gift of homemade, yummy food?
I know nothing makes me happier, especially when one of my favourite brands does all the hard work and the whole thing results in a massive good deep for Action Against Hunger…
Sounds like the most brilliant way to spread love & give thanks (and cookies) to me!
Want to join in?
First off, treat yourself to some of The Collective Dairy’s fantastic yoghurt!
There are many fantastic flavours to choose from, ranging from super creamy plain yoghurt to more unusual, gorgeous combinations such as honeyed plums & ginger, rhubarb & vanilla or even Russian fudge or coffee, so that part really shouldn’t be too hard!
One empty, peel off the label.
Then fill your (clean) tub with yummy grub.
You could go for the world’s best brownies, a festive salad, cake, or soup of course, but I thought something green & wholesome would go down well to balance out all the sugar, so I made a big batch of kale crisps.
The recipe’s below, it’s the quickest, easiest and yummiest thing ever & I promise it’ll turn even the most cabbage-resistant people into kale lovers.
All you have to do is wash & dry a big bunch of kale, then separate the leaves from the stalks. Massage with a spoonful of olive oil, then spread onto a baking tray. Sprinkle with salt and your favourite spices (I love using chilli flakes, lemon zest and maybe a little bit of parmesan), then bake for 10 min at 200°C. Let it cool down a bit before packing into tubs.
Personalise your tub…
Then give it away & make someone’s day!
And make sure you share your good deep on social media using the hashtag #tub4grub: The Collective Dairy will donate an extra 50p to Action Against Hunger on your behalf!
Eat it, make it, fill it, give it, share it, repeat! Happy #tub4grub-ing!
