Family Time, Say Cheese! Tillamook Cheese Hosts #SATXbloggers

About a year ago when we found out that our youngest son has many severe food allergies, it changed our lives. Other than the constant monitoring of his food, I have become aware of the ingredients of the food I am feeding my family.

So these days I am appreciative of food companies that are responsible for what they put in their products. Thanks to my friend Michelle at Family Love in My City, my family received an invitation from Tillamook  for a lunch in the park and a day at the zoo as part of their Texas Loaf Love Tour. We were excited about our family day and to learn about Tillamook’s commitment to not using artificial growth hormones or using any cow’s milk that could have antibiotics in it’s system.

The lunch was great with fresh fruit, and grilled cheese sandwiches. There were games for the kids, face painting and Loafy made an appearance. Each family entered their own grilled cheese creation in a cook off. Hats off to Michelle and her family for winning the overall prize of the Grilled Cheese Cook off!  We named our creation “Alright, alright, alriiiiiiight” but it wasn’t alright enough to win. Better luck next time.

After the fun in the park, we headed over to the San Antonio Zoo. My boys were thrilled to see so many animals and take a train ride in Brackenridge park.

Thank you Tillamook for our samples of shredded cheese that we got to take home. We did receive a recipe guide but I was anxious to try the delicious cheese on some of my favorite dishes. My breakfast tacos were topped off with the Mexican PepperJack and Medium Cheddar cheese. The tacos are made with egg substitute, pico de gallo and blue corn tortillas. Por supuesto, me encantan mis tacos

Chicken chalupas

Later on we topped off our homemade shredded chicken chalupas with Tillamook’s Medium Cheddar Cheese. For the chalupas, we slightly fried our corn tortillas, topped them with refried beans, shredded chicken breast, lettuce and tomatoes, sliced avocados and of course cheese!

All in all, my family enjoyed time at the park with new friends, family time at the San Antonio Zoo and two delicious meals which gives us what? … even more time together as a family. Thanks for sharing your ‘Loaf Love” with San Antonio.

Visit their website to find out where to buy Tillamook products and if the tour is coming close to you.

Qué Means What did receive a lunch for the family in the park, day passes to the San Antonio Zoo and three 8 oz. bags of shredded cheese from Tillamook. The opinions are my own.
