Just the other day my family flew into town for the holiday season. Now is the time when we find ourselves in the kitchen making meal after meal, and holiday recipes galore! This holiday season is a little different this year as I’ve Become Carton Smart!
So think about how much it would help our planet if everyone on Earth made one smart decision every day. Sure we are all individuals, but if you combine all those small smart decision, it can turn into something big and as a collective really make a difference. Now you can make a small smart decision by becoming Carton Smart with the Tetra Pak of Pacific Foods. This pak “applauds the thousands of small acts of smartness that add up to make a big difference”. The Tetra Pak carton packages are not only designed for maximum efficiency and environmental friendliness, but are also a great way to make a smart decision in your carbon footprint.

I couldn’t wait to try out new recipes with these products! One of my favorite holiday recipes to make it Pumpkin Soup. All you need is:
1 carton of the Pumpkin puree
1 carton of chicken stock
1 onion, diced
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 stalks of celery, diced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of dried thyme
1 tablespoon of fresh sage
1/3 cup of heavy cream
salt, pepper, ginger, and cinnamon.
Heat the onions, carrots, and celery over the olive oil in a medium hot pan. Saute for 7 minutes and then add in the garlic to cook for less than a minute. Add in the chicken stock and pumpkin puree, stirring to combine thoroughly. Add in the thyme and sage, where you then bring it to a simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Once the soup is done simmering, mix in the heavy cream in an immersion blender. Blend until the soup is creamy. Season to taste with the salt, pepper, cinnamon, and ginger. There you go! Amazing Pumpkin Soup created with 2 great products from Carton Smart by Pacific Foods.

I’d love to try the jellied cranberry sauce. I usually try to avoid eating store bought cranberry sauce because of the HFCS.
