Dinner is Ready!
Every day around 5:45 pm one of my three children would ask me, "what's for dinner?" I dreaded that question. I usually answered that question with one of three responses:
1. I don't know.
2. Whatever night. (Meaning they each got to choose what they wanted - chicken nuggets, grilled cheese, or peanut butter and jelly.)
3. Ask Daddy if he wants to make pancakes.
If I did have an idea on what to make I usually didn't have all the ingredients I needed to make it. Or, the vegetables I had purchased at the store, with the intent to use them, were now bad. Or, by the time I got the meat defrosted, veggies cut and everything done, we weren't eating until almost 7:00pm.
Because of all the above, I would say that we had a "from scratch" meal about two times a week. The rest of the week was filled with pancakes, chicken nuggets, sandwiches and the weekly pizza. I was lucky if vegetables and fruit actually made it to the dinner table.
Then I stumbled across THRIVE foods. This was the answer. I could get a healthy, quick meal (that included vegetables) on the table every night. THRIVE vegetables are washed and cut. THRIVE fruit can be eaten straight out of the can - what a great snack. And THRIVE meat is already defrosted and cooked! Plus with a shelf life of up to 25 years, I always had the ingredients I needed.
Thanks Thrive for making my life easier!
