I’m pretty sure every time someone asks “What’s for dinner?” I get a new grey hair or wrinkle. I don’t mind cooking it’s just that most nights I’m tired and secretly hope that if I sit down someone else will magically cook (maybe as my girls get older my dream will come true).
One way that I’ve found to make dinner prep less work and more enjoyable is simple sides that are quick and easy. This week Target has a number of our favorites on sale plus they are offering cartwheel offers!
Knorr Sides – current 10% off Cartwheel Offer
(one of our favorites is the Creamy Chicken)
We use Knorr Rice Sides as part of a delicious main dish or as a standalone side dish. My favorite way to cook with them is to add them dry straight into the oven with chicken or roasts and let cook with your main entree!
The Creamy Chicken rice & pasta blend combines onions, carrots, rosemary and garlic in a creamy chicken-flavored sauce. We add in shredded or diced chicken (pre-cooked), and some mayonnaise and have a creamy chicken and rice casserole done in less than 15 minutes.
Hellman’s Real Mayonnaise – on sale for $3.50
Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise is made with real, simple ingredients like cage free eggs (at least 50% in every bottle right now while they are working towards 100% cage free by 2020), and responsibly sourced oils and vinegar.
Mayonnaise is a key ingredient in most of our casseroles. Chicken and rice casserole for example, that I mentioned above, tastes even better with a half cup of mayo added.
Country Crock Buttery Sticks – 20% off Cartwheel Offer
Country Crock Buttery Sticks are made with with Sunflower Oil are great for baking. They can replace butter one-for-one in your favorite baking and cooking recipes. They are already soft so you don’t have to bother with melting or softening before cooking and baking either.
Lipton Black Tea – 10% off Cartwheel Offer
Lipton Black Tea has real tea leaves specially blended to enjoy hot or iced. Our in our house iced and sweetened!
My husband grew up with tea at every meal and that has been carried on in house. We just realized last week that we have officially hit the Pitcher a day level with all 7 of us… We grab the Lipton family sized decaf bags and have already taught the three oldest girls the art of making sweet tea.
