Mexican Pizza with Pace Salsa

The countdown to back to school is officially on.  Next week we are going to pay our son’s class fees so that he can get his school schedule, and then we’ll be buying school supplies and shopping for new clothes.  And even though we’ve still got a couple of weeks to go, I’m already thinking of menu ideas for all those back to school weeknights.  If you read my blog regularly or just look at the title, you will know that I embrace simple solutions, and that includes simple meal ideas.  Simple meals made with simple ingredients not only save me a lot of time and hassle, but they make my family happy.  And the great thing about some of our favorite meals, is that I can easily change them up to create all new favorites!

One of my son’s favorite meals is tacos.  I think he would eat tacos every single day if we would let him!  While I don’t want to cook tacos every night, I do enjoy coming up with similar alternatives to tacos such as quesadillas and Mexican Pizzas!  Today I’m going to show you how we make our Mexican Pizzas, and I’ve also got some coupon deals on Campbell’s products like Pace Chunky Salsa!

Marie Callenders Pot Pies

The holidays are a busy time!  I have our usual family schedule to consider, as well as holiday blogging, and Christmas orders to fill in my Etsy shop…BUT at the end of the day, I still have to put dinner on the table, regardless of whatever else is going on.  Marie Callender’s Pot Pies are a great dinner option for my family and me.  Marie Callender’s tastes like homemade, and they have wholesome pot pies, which now come in a Family Size.  And since all we have to do is pop them in the oven and for them to cook, it saves me a TON of time,  allowing me to do other work and spend time with the family!

Pizza Night with Aldi

Pizza Night with Aldi

I try my best to plan out our meals for the week, but life can often throw your curve balls.  If I have a migraine or other illness, I definitely need a dinner that is a quick fix.  Or if Noah’s event schedule changes, we may find ourselves needing to make something quick or we may even find ourselves having a dinner for two.  In other cases, we may have last second company and need to make something quick for extra people.  Whatever the reason, I always try to have several easy dinner night options on hand.

In the past I’ve told you how much I love Aldi and all the great deals they have to offer on some of my favorite grocery items.  During my most recent trip, I picked up a deli pizza.  Aldi has a number of core range and special buy pizza’s from their store brand Mama Cozi. [Read more…]

Game Time with Tyson Deli Wings

When it comes time for game day, we always have a lot of “man food” on hand.  I love putting out a spread of appetizers on the counter just before the start of the first game of the day, and then going back later at dinner time.  It generally makes for an easy day as far as cooking, and it allows me to watch the games with my hubby without having to spend all day in the kitchen.  Hot Wings are definitely on my top 5 list of game day buffet items!  But if you want to keep it easy, you usually have to order out, which can get expensive, or you have to buy a frozen product, which just doesn’t compare with something fresh.

OR… You can stop by the Walmart Deli!  The Walmart Deli serves up a variety of bone-in and boneless wings for your football party! [Read more…]

Jimmy Dean RedBox Breakfasts

I love breakfast!  It is actually one of my favorite meals to eat, but I’m not a fan of getting up to make it, when I’m in a hurry, I have to go with something quick and simple.  (Cereal, anyone?)  Luckily  Jimmy Dean has come to the rescue with their Red Box Breakfasts!  With this great line of products, you can serve up hot, delicious meals at breakfast time in as little as 5 minutes!

Jimmy Dean Red Box

 The Red Box Breakfast line includes of variety of sandwiches and breakfast bowls.  They include (but are not limited to):

  • Jimmy Dean Meat Lover’s Breakfast Bowl
  • Jimmy Dean Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches
  • Jimmy Dean Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Muffin Sandwiches
  • Jimmy Dean Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit Sandwiches

I LOVE Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sandwiches.  I usually buy their Bacon, Egg, and Cheese or their Ham & Cheese Croissants, but I’ve also tried their Sausage Biscuits, Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit, and their Chicken Biscuits.  All of these have been just great!  They taste delicious, and you get a good amount of servings for the price.

But for this review, I decided to go with something a little different; the Jimmy Dean Meat Lover’s Breakfast Bowl!

Jimmy Dean RedBox Breakfasts

I had always been curious about trying the Breakfast Bowls, and I’m so glad that I finally did!  I seriously could not believe out good the Meat Lover’s Bowl is!

This bowl comes packed with scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, and cheese!  So hearty and very filling! Not to mention, Yummy! 

Breakast Bowl Bite

The serving size is also great.  I believe it is perfect for one person. I got plenty to eat and found it very satisfying! Not to mention, that each bite is filled with flavor, so much that you will have no problem cleaning your bowl:

 The only problem is that you’re going to want another one tomorrow, so you better stock up!

The Meat Lover’s Breakfast Bowl from Jimmy Dean is available in the frozen breakfast section at your local Wal-Mart.  And each breakfast bowl is around $3.  This is a really great value!
