It never seems there are enough hours in the day. All of those productivity, time hacking books enlighten you and show you the opposite, but for most working parents time feels elusive.
I have all of these plans to limit eating out, start menu planning again, and get into a routine and it just never seems to stick for very long. Now after being married for nearly 17 years, I have a pretty healthy number of recipes that I've tried over the years and yet I still struggle.
Menu planning ends up going one of three ways. Either I load up the menu for the month repeating all of our favorites too many times, I try to make too many new recipes that haven't earned the family's stamp of approval, or I loosely create a menu saying chicken or ground beef night with no idea what said chicken or ground beef recipe will be.
After being gone at two different conferences in two different parts of the country in the last two weeks, I need to get back on the meal planning train again.
I need to have a meal plan in place that's foolproof so there's plenty of options for dinner that taste great, don't take hours to make, and just make life easier in general. So while I'm usually a make it from scratch kind of girl, I also don't want to reinvent the wheel or spend more time on something that just doesn't help make meal time with my family easier and better.
Then I found Knorr One Skillet Meal Starters at Kroger near the Knorr Sides products! I went with the Steak & Peppers Brown Rice & Quinoa since our whole family loves love steak, peppers, and onions.
Knorr One Skillet Meal Starters have a variety of organic grains like barley, farro, quinoa, and couscous, along with a blend of herbs and spices, without any color from artificial sources or artificial flavors. So all you need to add is the protein (chicken, beef, or shrimp) and fresh veggies, and dinner is done! Not only does it taste great and save time cooking dinner, since it's a one skillet meal you have less dishes to wash too!
Check out how easy it is to push boundaries in the kitchen by encouraging your family to try new things with this Steak & Peppers Brown Rice & Quinoa recipe using Knorr One Skillet Meal Starters!
