When do/did your kids go back to school? My kids started up again a couple of weeks ago…and it’s already nutty. Haley begged me last dance season to let her do two classes this year and Trevor has been asking about soccer forever. I’ve resisted both, because of the time commitment. But I caved. I’m such a sucker for organized sports!
So there you have it – 2 nights a week Haley has dance, and 2 nights a week, Trevor has soccer; sometimes falling on the same days. And that’s after school and homework. Those days are super fun. Not.
I try to cook homemade meals from scratch as much as possible, but with this crazy schedule, I’m in desperate need of some quick and/or easy dinners; preferably recipes I can set and forget about, so they’re ready when we get home so late. But I also don’t want to throw all nutrition out the window.
Kraft recently launched Kraft Recipe Makers which is a new product line of meal starters. Each box comes with 2 savory sauces and recipe suggestions – all you do is supply the fresh ingredients. There are 9 varieties to choose from, with 3 different ways to prepare each one (in a slow cooker, skillet or oven), supplying you with 27 different dinners!
As you know, I tried their Verde Chicken Enchiladas, which was a big hit. Now, I made their Slow Cooker Hickory BBQ Beef, which was a winner also!
And it does not get any easier, friends. Put a 2 1/2 pound beef chuck roast in the slow cooker, pour their simmer sauce over the top, cover and cook on low for 8 hours, let cool slightly, shred the meat, mix in the finishing sauce, and place on some buns with your favorite coleslaw – done! And most importantly, it was delicious! Don’t want to use beef? Try ground turkey. Want to sneak in a veggie? Add some bell peppers. The sauces are versatile enough that you can customize it to your families’ needs.
Watch our Very Culinary how-to video and see how easy and delicious your next dinner can be!
