Me - Yes?
Kids - "I'm hungry. What's for dinner?"
Now, you might ask me why I say, "yes?" when I know what they are going to ask. It is the same question every night. Most nights I'm prepared. I know what I'm going to cook and I have all that I need. Depending on my mood (and what I know their response will be), I'll either tell them specifically what we're eating or I give the standard answer, "Food." (I always hated when my mom said that, but at least now I understand why. I like to limit the amount of time I have to listen to them complain. If they don't know what they're eating until they see it, then I don't have to hear about it while I'm cooking as well.)
Every once in a while I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to feed my family. Does that make me a bad mom? On days when Doc won't be coming home for dinner I can be pretty lax. We'll have cereal, toast, pizza bagels or anything else that requires only food products that I always have on hand. Perhaps I should change that to almost always have on hand. There have been the occasional times when I'm counting on cereal only to discover that we are out of milk. Oops! I can't be the only person this has happened to, right?
Now, thanks to Barber Foods, I now have a new go-to that I will always keep on hand. I was sent a sample of Seasoned Selects Broccoli & Cheese and Chicken Cordon Bleu to try with my family. First, let me share a bit of information about Seasoned Selects:
Seasoned Selects are a new line of stuffed chicken breast entrees. They’re made with juicy, white meat chicken stuffed with savory combinations of meat, cheese and vegetables. Unlike the traditional Barber Stuffed Breast, however, this new line is not breaded, but is seasoned with a blend of herbs and spices, and is lower in calories, fat, and carbs. Seasoned Selects are a great dinner option for those nights when you need drama-free dinner prep. Just throw these entrees in the oven and get going on a quick salad or side dish. Barber Foods Seasoned Selects are a quick and unexpected dinner option that everyone in the family will love.Surprisingly, they were a hit with everyone in the family. Both Doc and the girls enjoyed the Chicken Cordon Bleu, and I just love the Broccoli & Cheese. All you need is about 40 minutes and you can have a quality meal that definitely beats the cold cereal or toast we sometimes have. Along with the chicken, I just heated up some noodles and a salad and it looked like a meal I might have spent all day preparing. I'll definitely be keeping a supply of these in the freezer for those unplanned dinner days or even for an unexpected guest. If a guest were to stop by though, I might go all out and prepare one of these new side dishes that can be found on Barber Foods website. (I've been eying that Simple & Delicious Angel Hair Pasta since they sent me the link.)
