OMG. It's Wednesday night and I still feel bloated from all the food I ate over the holiday weekend. Multiple cookouts on Saturday in the Poconos... followed by multiple cookouts on Sunday (at Cathy & Kyles), and more on Monday. Needless to say, I didn't hold back. And I should have. No really. I should have! But the food was SOOOOOOO amazing.
Reaching out into the bloggershere, POM Wonderful graciously sent us a sample of their 100% Pomegranate Juice to try and review. I know, I know... is this what you're reading the blog for? We thought about this long and hard before we considered writing a product review... and then we realized, that's what we've have been doing for other items and those companies didn't send us a sample. We've been sharing products that work for us... whether it be types of wipes, toys, facial products, etc. It's about what makes our lives easier now that we're parents, and hopefully guide others to leading a try things that work for them.
Besides tasting great, you can do so many great things in the kitchen - and on the grill - and at the bar - with POM Wonderful Pomegranate juice.
So... what does one do on a holiday weekend and numerous dishes to cook up? Break open a bottle of POM Wonderful Pomegranate juice and get creative. And so we did...
First up: Mango Tequila Pom Shrimp
In a food processor, combine the mango, cilantro, jalapenos, onion, and garlic and finely chop. Gradually add the all the juices, salt and sugar. Pour this mixture over the shrimp; cover and refrigerate for 30-45 minute. Turn the kabobs several times during this marination.
Next Up: POM Wonderful Pomegranate Barbecue Ribs.

And the finale of the POM Wonderful recipes, my famous Ménage à trois cocktail (usually made with Three Cherry Pomegranate Vodka... but this version uses 100% pomegranate juice and is much better). This version has been renamed Ménage à POM.
