Dinner Done in 30 Minutes or Less
I love to cook, but dislike spending tons of hours in the kitchen. Fortunately, there are many ways to enjoy a warm and home-cooked meal without slaving in the kitchen for hours, because of this, I am always on the look out for easy recipes or short cuts that can help me in the kitchen. On any given night, we prepare some kind of protein (usually chicken or turkey), some kind of starch and a side (usually salad). You might be asking, why do we usually prepare kitchen or turkey? Well, the answer is because I find chicken and turkey to be less pricey than red meat. Of course, this doesn’t mean that I don’t look for bargains when it comes to meat. Luckily, just the other day, I learned that right now, you can get one pound of ground beef when you purchase three Helper products after mail-in-rebate! Yes, you read that right, FREE protein.
So, knowing that I could score free protein, I went ahead and printed the mail-in-rebate (M-I-R) and headed to my Publix to purchase everything I needed. As soon as I came home, I prepared the Hamburger Helper Double Cheeseburger Macaroni, following the box instructions, and voila! I had dinner done in less than 30 minutes.
The kids ate everything on the plate and then asked for more. Exactly, what this mommy wanted to hear! 🙂 I love all the varieties that Helper offers, did you know that there are Helpers for tuna & chicken? I surely didn’t know. Next time I am at the market, I will be sure to pick up a few extra to make tuna & chicken Helper, this would make my weekend meals a little less hectic. 😉
Purchase (3) Helper Product, Get 1 lb. of ground beef After M-I-R
I would love to hear from you, what do you think of my pairing? What would you pair your Helper with?
