So the three kids were sick, and so was My Man (and I want to make a joke about what he’s like when he’s sick, but I don’t want to get in trouble – so just take an imaginative leap there).
I was completely burned out, exhausted. I hadn’t had a decent night of sleep in about a week.
- Dishes, not done.
- Groceries, unpurchased.
- Laundry, piled high!
Everyone was hungry too. And you know what I did? I pulled out the Healthy Choice meals.
While they aren’t the (overpriced) fodder from organic, hand-ground-what-have-you cafes in the San Francisco Bay Area, they are:
- Food that whiny, sick kids will eat.
- Food that I can be relieved knowing is actually healthy – the vegetables in the frozen meals go from farm to freezer within 24 hours and ingredients are simple and fresh
- Are not heavily processed
- Reasonably priced
If you have a freezer, you’ll be glad you have some of this on hand for moments like the one I had last week.
ConAgra Foods frozen meals give families access to real ingredients like crunchy, freshly cut vegetables, homemade pasta and ripe fruit year-round. Just like most people blanch veggies before freezing them – ConAgra Foods does too – to help preserve color, texture and keep them fresh!
Give it a try sometime! Marie Callender’s hearty pot pies are filled with tender meat, freshly cut vegetables and Marie’s authentic golden, flaky crust. And Healthy Choice recipes use chef-inspired ingredients like, apples instead of sugar for tart sweetness and a splash of red wine for a punch of flavor instead of added salt.
