Doing Lunch with Lean Cuisine Marketplace

I’ve written a lot of posts here about making time for Mom, and especially the importance of not skipping meals and always scheduling time for lunch.  With the back to school season upon us, I feel these ideas need to re-emphasized.  Late July and early August are traditionally the times when we are doing our back to school shopping, buying everything from paper and crayons, to clothes and shoes, and of course, back to school lunch and snack ideas for the kids.  But what about something for mom?  As we load up those backpacks and prepare our kids for a successful day at school, we should also prepare ourselves for a successful day.  One way you can do this is by doing lunch with LEAN CUISINE® MARKPLACE.

They have a variety of delicious meals that include gluten-free options, protein packed options, organic ingredient options.  And their offerings include bold flavor profiles and sophisticated ingredients that are perfect for Mom!

Game time with progresso Chili

We’ve been watching some big games on tv, and there are still a few more big one to go!  And with the winter weather finally upon us, there’s no better time to celebrate game night with a nice bowl of Progresso Chili.  Stews and chilis are some of my favorite comfort foods, and that’s just one reason I love serving them for game night!  They are also foods that you can serve to most anyone, and if more people show up to your get together, there’s usually enough to go around!

Progresso Chili comes in convenient pouches and can be whipped up in minutes using your microwave or stove stop. And they are thick and feature large chunks of meat and beans!  It’s a great way to to dine on a dime! It’s also goes great on a buffet of appetizers and other game night foods, and is the perfect take along item for pot lucks! [Read more…]

Aunt Jemima’s Lil’ Griddles #AJLilGriddlesCG #spon

Mornings can be quite hectic.  It’s hard enough to get yourself up and ready to start the day, much less your kids.  And it is even hard to get everyone to the table for breakfast. Aunt Jemima is here to help with their frozen pancakes, French toast sticks, and other breakfast selections.

The goal of Aunt Jemima frozen breakfast is to deliver every batch just like you’d make it yourself. Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day, and Aunt Jemima frozen breakfast knows for moms, starting her family out with a warm breakfast makes the morning, and the entire day, even more special.

And now Aunt Jemima is introducing a knew line of frozen breakfast items, especially for the kids called Lil Griddles.  They are an excellent, on-the-go, bite sized breakfast option, and they come in three great varieties:

  • Aunt Jemima frozen Blueberry Mini pancakes
  • Aunt Jemima frozen Mini Pancakes
  • Aunt Jemima frozen Cinnamon French Toast Sticks

Aunt Jemima's Lil' Griddles

Personally I love pancakes!  My dad used to make them every Sunday when I was growing up, but quite honestly, even if I have the time, I don’t love the idea of standing over a hot griddle for a long time,  so a good frozen option is perfect for me.  They take only about 30 seconds to cook, which is great if you’re in a hurry, or if you decide to have breakfast at the last minute. And they still come out light and fluffy, and they taste just as good as homemade.

I shopped around in my area for the Lil’ Griddles line because I was especially excited to try their mini pancakes.  My dad used to make me “silver dollar” pancakes when I was little, and I felt the Lil’ Griddles Mini Pancakes would bring back those memories, but since I couldn’t find them, I purchased a box of the regular size Aunt Jemima Buttermilk Pancakes.  And they were just delicious and tasted like they were made from scratch!

I defiinitely recommend the Aunt Jemima frozen breakfast products to anyone looking for a fast, yet fresh and delicious as homemade option for breakfast!

Greenie Tots Review

Greenie Tots


It’s difficult to find meals that are fast, convenient, delicious, and healthy, especially when you are trying to feed kids. Greenie Tots is a line of microwaveable meals that satisfies all these requirements.  Their meals can be prepared in 5 minutes are less.  Each is 100% meatless and contains no artificial colors or flavors and no high fructose corn syrup.

There are 5 varieties available.  They include:

  • Cauliflower Rice with Chik’n
  • Pasta & Spinach Marinara with Meat-Style Grounds
  • Mac and Cheese with Peas
  • Chik’n, Cheese & Spinach Quesadillas with Mixed Vegetables
  • Cheeseburger Quesadillas with Sweet Potato Fries

I got two try a couple of Greenie Tots entrees.  I selected Cauliflower Rice with Chik’n and the Mac and Cheese with Peas. Both were delicious!

Greenie Tots Cauliflower Rice with Chikn

The  Cauliflower Rice with Chik’n.  It contains a soy-free meatless chick’n that, in my opinion, tasted just as good as the real thing.  And it had a great mixture of long grain white rice and vegetables.  If you are a fan of stir-fry, I think you would love love this.  I didn’t even season mine, because the flavor was so good I didn’t see a need.  And it was also a good portion size for me.

Mac and Cheese with Peas

As for the Mac and Cheese with Peas, I liked it as well.  The Mac and Cheese was especially good! It is made with a blend of five organic cheeses and milk, and it tasted just as good as other mac & cheese products I’ve bought in the past.  As for the peas, I did season those a bit, to give them a little bit of flavor, I thought they were a great compliment to the Mac & Cheese, and I think kids will love this meal.

I think the other selections looks great as well. For instance, I’d love to try the quesadillas!

Which meal would you like to try?

And what’s most important to you when you’re shopping for frozen entree?  Flavor? Healthy? Kid friendly? Price? Something else?
