How about a union-made Super Bowl party?
There sure is: Union-Made Buffalo Wings. Go to our friends at Labor 411 for the recipe here. The ingredients include chicken from Foster Farms or Tyson's (UFCW); Land O' Lakes butter (UAW); Frank's Red HOT sauce (UFCW); and Ken's Bleu Cheese Dressing (UFCW).
UnionPlus has a whole on-line recipe book at Pinterest. It includes a Budweiser Beer Batter recipe using Teamster-made beer. Also: union-made Enchiladas with recommendations for a union-made tequila accompaniment.
And speaking of adult beverages: Labor 411 has a complete list of union-made beer here. (The Teamsters Facebook page has a robust beer-oriented conversation going on here, btw.)
Corningware Bakewire or Libbey dinnerware and glasses, made by our brothers and sisters at the United Steelworkers. Or if you're having a more casual affair with disposable plates and cups, buy Solo products made by Teamsters.
And please, do your grocery shopping in union grocery stores. Labor 411 (of course) has a list here. It includes Giant Eagle, Heinen's, Jewel, Kroger, Safeway and many more.
