You May Be a Winner if You Eat Like a Jerk
As the cook of a house with three picky eaters (my dog is the only one who appreciates anything I whip up … or leave sitting on the counter … or spill on the floor … or toss in the garbage – I love him so), I often find myself wandering the supermarket aisles in search of something they might all eat without all the frickin' whining already.
There, in the condiment section, it caught my eye.
It had my family of "ick – I don't like that" diners' name written all over it. In big black capital letters, no less:
"World Harbor Jamaican Style Jerk Marinade and Sauce" to be exact.
Offering a blend of island sweet and spicy, I thought I might be a happy medium for this crew of culinary critics. I bought it. And so did they.
After marinating some fresh mahi-mahi fillets in it for an hour, I tossed them on the grill along with yellow and orange bell peppers brushed lightly with olive oil and some rice pilaf on the side. It went down juuuust fine, especially with some extra jerk sauce for a dip. (No, I was not the dip.)
Simple as that. So is winning a trip to Maui, Fiji, Tahiti, Cabo, a tropical cruise or even to my 'hood – New England, if you purchase a lucky bottle of World Harbors Maui Mountain Teriyaki, Maui Mountain Sweet ’N Sour or Jamaican Style Jerk Marinade that has a “golden label” in it. There's only six winning bottles out there in the world and the contest ends Sept. 3, 2012, so hurry.
The Golden Label Giveaway by World Harbors Marinades is part of their "Passports to Flavor" sweepstakes. Go check out World Harbors on Facebook for more information, coupons, and fun. I hear if you give them a "like" then fill out a form there you have a chance to win more travel or travel-related items.
If only I could win some family members with easier-to-please palates.
