Friday's Find – An Easy & Delicious Weeknight Dinner FixPosted by MeckMom on Oct 15, 2010 in Uncategorized | 1 comment
I’m not sure it should count as a Friday Find if it’s already Saturday in half of the country. Sorry guys, it’s been a busy day.
Today’s Friday Find is an easy one. It’s one of my favorite quick-fix dinner options. You know those nights when your tempted to grab a box of mac & cheese but the guilt of feeding your kids those pitiful orange noodles again makes you search for something else? Well, this is my favorite backup. Granted, it still comes from a box and can be whipped up in about 15 minutes but the end result is lightyears better than the blue and yellow box variety.
So far we’ve tried the Chicken Piccata and the Creamy Basil (minus the sun-dried tomatoes). My kids raved about both. My only suggestion is to pick up a little extra pasta when you’re in the grocery store. The amount that comes with the box is a bit sparse. You can find these in the pasta aisle for about $4 each. They’re certainly not as good as the real Macaroni Grill fare, but they’re definitely an upgrade from your other meal-in-a-box options.
I’m going to hold off on the linky party this week – I’m thinking that I may bump it to my Monday post instead (since I think I can be a little more reliable at the beginning of the week). I’ll keep you posted. Have a great weekend everyone.
