Confession time: I am NOT good at planning dinner ahead of time.
I’m talking, it’s 5:30 and we usually eat at 6:00, what the heck should I make, kind of not planning.
Result? We eat spaghetti at least once a week. (Hence, the spaghetti casserole I came up with…)
It also results in the same boring side dishes night after night.
That’s one reason I was excited to try Green Giant Seasoned Steamers when I first heard about them. Finally a sauce-free frozen vegetable with a little zip to excite the taste buds! Green Giant has developed 6 tantalizing flavors to choose from: Mediterranean Blend, Tuscan Seasoned Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts with Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper, Honey Roasted Sweet Corn, Honey Dijon Carrots and Backyard Grilled Potatoes.
This past week, as I was searching the freezer for inspiration, I saw the bag of Tuscan Seasoned Broccoli and pulled it out. I have to say, being able to cook the veggies right in their bag almost made me feel guilty because of how easy it was.
In minutes I had a delicious side dish prepared for my family. (The pork chops that I pulled out of the freezer were another issue…)
And the critics?
My husband and daughter loved it! (My husband’s actual words were, “This is good!!”)
My son is more the “don’t put anything on my food” kind of guy. He ate it, but only if I held it for him because he didn’t want to touch the seasoning with his 3 year-old picky little fingers. (After all, you can’t expect him to use a fork to eat “trees.” Anyone else’s kid like that?)
The next time I go to the store I’m planning to pick up a package of the Mediterranean Blend; it definitely sounds like a step up from our usual canned green beans or corn…
