orange chicken instant pot

There are a lot of great kitchen gadgets out there, but the Instant Pot is one of our favorite items ever. While we all enjoy eating delicious food, the cooking and cleaning part tends to be a real bummer. However with Instant Pot, we and other guys around the world have been able to create some awesome recipes ranging from ribs to curry to orange chicken. These are healthy, man meals that can cook in minutes vs hours and often times all in one pot instead of having a stack of pans waiting for you to clean.

Halloween is coming up quick but there's still time to get ready! One of our favorite places any time of the year is Goodwill stores since it's a great place to get used (and sometimes brand new) items that you can make into the ultimate Halloween costume. Even better is that money spent at Goodwill stores helps fund their programs and services to help people find jobs, earn paychecks and care fo their families. It's a win-win for everyone in the community!

cx 5 joshua trees

Earlier this month, 10 bloggers embarked on a once in a lifetime adventure sponsored by Mazda. We camped inside of Joshua Tree National Park in California, explored desert roads, created some amazing photography, viewed the craters on the moon and cooked up some delicious campfire recipes. National Parks are one of our country's amazing treasures and for the most part they are designed to be explored by car. Now we want to have a conversation with you and share some of our stories as well as talk about where you are hoping to go this year.

Road trips are an opportunity to explore this amazing country. It's more than just a way to get somewhere but rather an opportunity to see and experience things you simply can't when you only fly over them. Next week, we're headed into the California desert with 10 bloggers for a once in a lifetime opportunity to camp in Joshua Tree National Park, explore Historic RT 66, share stories around a campfire and see, do, eat, drink, and experience things you can't imagine unless you were there with us.

This is something that you can do with your family too. With summer almost here, it's time to start planning your next road trip and we're going to share some tips on how to make those trips epic!

In 1922, a group of 25 Army officers made a promise to protect each other when no one else would. Nearly a century later, USAA represents more than 11 million members committeed to the same mission. The organization provides a suite of services for military members and their families, including: Insurance, Banking, Investing, Real Estate, Retirement Planning, Health Insurance, and Shopping Discounts. With 2016 marking the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, this year's location for the Pro Bowl has a special significance.

Since 2011, USAA has been an Official Military Appreciation Sponsor of the NFL, including their Salute to Service campaign. On January 31, 2016 they will be presenting the NFL Pro Bowl between two teams comprised of the best football players in the NFL today, and a series of events that week leading up to the game. The two teams - headed by football legends Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice - will draft their teams on Wednesday, January 27 and compete for glory with the best players in the league.

Our Twitter Party will start just before the coin toss on Sunday, Jan 31 at 7:30 pm ET, but make sure to follow @MenWhoBlog and @USAA for coverage from all the exciting events that week including:

  • Pro Bowl Draft, Wednesday, Jan. 27 starting at 7 pm ET
  • Pro Bowl Practice on Friday, Jan 29 starting at 2:45 pm ET
  • Pro Bowl Tailgate on Sunday, Jan 31 starting at 7:15 pm ET and Game on Sunday, Jan 31 starting at 8 pm ET

Topic:

How to Participate in the Twitter Party:

1) Monitor the official Twitter Party Hashtag, #USAAProBowlParty

2) Follow @MenWhoBlog for questions that will be presented as "Q1: Who is your favorite #ProBowl player? #USAAProBowlParty" Since this isn't your typical Twitter Party, we'll be doing a lot of back and forth conversation about the game itself too so we hope you'll join in that as well.

3) ReTweet questions and your favorite comments by others participating in the party via the #USAAProBowlParty

4) Answer questions by responding in this format making sure to include the hashtag #USAAProBowlParty, "A1: I love Aaron Rodgers! #USAAProBowlParty"
