Pecan [PEE-can] - That's how you say it, OK?!
In addition to pecans, I'm selling muffins, cinnamon rolls and sweet potato casserole - all with pecans in the recipe of course. Find out more about these options in the Kitchen Fixin's section of our site.
As the lady in Dollar General reminded me, so many people don't know what they are going to eat for their next meal, much less have extra money to spend on fancy pecans. So, as I was thinking about how to make our pecan project more than just about filling our bellies with yummy snacks, Weekend Blessings came to mind. I love the work they do to love on the kids in need in our area. They are a local non-profit organization that sends food home on the weekends with kids from school who may not be guaranteed a meal until they return to school on Monday. The best meal they get is at school each day. So with Toms shoes as my inspiration, with each bag of pecans or "Kitchen Fixin's" item sold, we'll donate one food item to Weekend Blessings.
