An Easy Dinner Recipe with Only 15 Minutes of Prep Work!
Happy New Year!! Have you made your yearly goals and resolutions yet? I just shared my Word of the Year and a FREE worksheet with all of you last week and have been thinking about how it applies to every area of my life. I want to thrive this year, which means for our family growing our savings account and being able to settle into a house. It’s a BIG goal that requires a lot of work, including eating at home more often. One of our biggest spending areas is eating out or ordering in, so I am on a mission for 2018 to keep super easy and quick meals in the house that we can have when we’re feeling a bit lazy about cooking, which happens more than I’d like to admit. Criteria for these meals?
- 15 minutes of hands on prep or less
- Tasty because we won’t actually make them if we don’t enjoy the meals
- Easy to have stored in the house with no rare ingredients
This Copycat McRib Sandwich recipe definitely fits the bill. My husband was so excited about enjoying these for dinner and having all the leftovers for lunch throughout the week. My Italian Night with an On-Cor Lasagna and a fresh Tossed Caprese Salad also meets all the criteria in case you missed it. On-Cor is a great solution for keeping us on track with eating at home as a family. They have been bringing families to the table with their entrees for 70 years! To make this copycat McRib sandwich, I picked up a a box of Barbecue Sauce and 6 Boneless Rib-Shaped Patties at my local Marianos. The hickory-smoked boneless rib patties, made with pork and chicken, are marinated and char-broiled for hickory smoked taste, then smothered in barbecue sauce. While the entrée was cooking in the oven, I was able to squeeze in a little extra family prep time while Bryan played with Liam after work. I got our family calendar updated in the kitchen, went through the mail, prepped Liam’s bottle and breakfast for the next day and even squeezed in a few stories as a family! Of course, if you are looking for even faster dinner cook time, you could use the microwave prep option and have dinner on the table in under 30 minutes. On-Cor entrées are fully-cooked, frozen dinners that are conveniently packaged. There is no prep work other than preheating the oven and peeling off a layer of plastic film. That’s it! And On-Cor has been working to enhance their products to satisfy us busy moms, giving us quality dinner solutions and new packaging that makes it easy to understand exactly what we are feeding our families. So not only does On-Cor want to help you out with dinner prep, but they also want to give away a box of goodies! The prize will include a coupon valid for one free On-Cor entrée, children’s apron, kitchen tools set, children’s baking cookbook, The Game of Life, popcorn maker and popcorn bowl. To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me your goals for 2018 and which On-Cor entrée you want to try (or already love)?
