Are you ready for some football (snacks)?! With the football season upon us, the ladies from the Easy Home Meals team wanted to share our favorite game-day munchies!
Yogurt is one of the most versatile foods because it ranges in flavors and textures, as well as its role at various meal occasions. Customizing a tub of yogurt is an easy task because it can be spruced up, mixed, swirled and lightened – and that’s just the beginning! Yogurts can also star in sweet and savory dishes or of course, be eaten on its own with a scoop of granola.
Weekly food themes are all the rage, with Meatless Monday, Taco Tuesday, Wine Wednesday and many more. But just because no day of the week begins with “p” doesn’t mean that a dedicated Pizza Night is wrong—in fact, it’s very right! Even better, ditch delivery, and make it a fun activity for the entire family.
If loving rice is wrong, we don’t want to be right. Rice is a cereal grain and has fed more people over a longer period of time than any other crop. As far back as 2500 B.C., rice has been accounted in history as a source of food and plays an important role in many traditions. Rice is able to be grown in many parts of the world, even in the desert conditions of Saudi Arabia. In fact, it’s now grown on all continents except Antarctica. With September being National Rice Month, we thought it’d be the perfect chance to share our top ways to use frozen rice!
Now that kids are back in school and spending five days away from home for most of the day, parents have to keep quick and satisfying breakfast and lunch options at the ready. Since many kids eat breakfast at home or on the go and consume lunch at school (whether purchased or from a brown bag), the struggle is real, especially when planning and preparing two meals a day for five days a week. That’s 10 meals a week per child and doesn’t even count dinner! But, don’t worry because we’ve got you covered with a range of options for breakfast and lunch.
Today we pay homage to the frozen food department as we celebrate TV Dinner Day! In 1954, the original “TV Dinner” was introduced nationally by C.A. Swanson & Sons. It contained roast turkey,
cornbread dressing and gravy, peas and sweet potatoes and cost a whopping 98 cents. Flash forward 61 years, these TV Dinners, now referred to as frozen entrées or meals, have come a long way in innovation, but continue to offer convenience, flavor, quality and value to the young and old alike. According to Prepared Foods, 73 percent of households said they have purchased single-serve or multi-serve frozen entrées within the past six months
As Labor Day approaches every year, we have to admit we’re always feeling a little bittersweet. Somewhat sad because summer and warm weather is dwindling…but happy because kids are back in school, and the fall holidays are near. Regardless, it’s a time when everyone deserves one last hoorah with family and friends!
It’s that difficult time of year when some people are holding on to the last moments of summer while others are anxiously transitioning to fall. Whichever side you fall on, every day is a good day to savor your favorite beverage (especially those refreshing frozen drinks!) And whether it’s a power smoothie for breakfast, a cocktail for get-togethers with friends or an indulgent shake to end your day, we know everything is better frozen!
