Tailgate party tips
If you are the quarterback of a tailgating party this football season, the National Pork Producer's Council has these suggestions: Prepare a variety of bite-size, hand-held sandwiches, snacks and kebabs; pack food in self-sealing bags and disposable containers; remember trash bags and hand wipes; and bring several large bottles of water to extinguish charcoal if you are grilling.
Bonus for shoppers
If you feel as if you spend half your life in the grocery store, Giant Food has a plan for you. Last week, the supermarket chain introduced its frequent shopper BonusCard that will provide discounts to shoppers, cash grants to local schools and opportunities to win prizes. You can sign up and receive a card at any Giant store.
