So many friends feel as though they are going to disappoint me when they confess that they “use the box mix”. I am hear to tell you that IT IS OKAY! In fact, I feel it is an excellent way of becoming even more comfortable in your kitchen. By this I mean “OWN IT! Know what works and what TASTES GOOD and use it! Let’s face it, when we invest our time into one thing…another thing takes our time. Time is valuable and there is always a trade-off for it. Some dishes are worth the extra effort to prepare homemade and others may not be worthy…. On days when 6pm creeps upon us way too quickly, that is when making a completely homemade meal might not be the best choice for us. Ladies….drop the guilt, it is okay to use the box when you are pleased with the product.
Here are some “boxes” I love (and I am not too proud to say, I use!) Please share yours too!
|GFS has the BEST frozen Pulled pork! I put this in the crockpot when I throw parties or entertain a large crowd. I get so many rants and raves! It really is sooo delicious!|
|Krusteaz is an amazing brand- I especially love their Crumb Cake!|
|Couscous is a grain-based side dish that tastes/looks like a noodle in rice form. That is certainly not a definition from wikipedia, but that is the best way I can describe it! I love adding this as a side to grilled chicken, veggie kabobs, or pork chops.
I hope that I relieved some of you with this post. For those of you who are surprised…I am so sorry! However, the last thing I want to be is an idol. I LOVE to cook and I LOVE homemade, but it’s OKAY to think INSIDE the box sometimes…
