In a perfect world there would be time to do it all during the day: school/work, get daily chores done, play with the kids, and get a hot meal on the table in time for dinner.
But I’m going to be honest with you. Even as a SAHM, there are days that after homeschooling, catching up on laundry and dishes, and running around with the kids, the last thing I want to do is make dinner. And since a personal chef is out of the question, I was excited to have an opportunity to stock a little help right in my pantry.
Hamburger Helper to the rescue!
I have a picky eater right now, so I was happy to see how many varieties of Hamburger Helper are available. With lasagna being one of her favorite meals, I knew I had to pick up the lasagna version. (She is going to love having the taste of lasagna on a weeknight!) The cheesy enchilada and chili macaroni also made it home to our pantry.
After a busy day of running errands, I couldn’t wait to give the cheesy enchilada Hamburger Helper dinner a try!
I went ahead and tried the serving suggestion on the back of the box, adding a can of black beans as it simmered and serving it on tortillas. It’s a great way to add a little more fiber and stretch the meal even further!
Sometimes it’s not the cooking, but just trying to come up with a dinner idea everyone will eat that is the problem. And right now, I have to say this was a big hit! Having a few of these in the pantry for quick and easy weeknight meals is going to come in handy!
Not only is Hamburger Helper a quick and tasty dinner idea, but right now you can get your ground beef for free with the mail in rebate. How awesome is that?
This is my first experience with Hamburger Helper. Let me know in the comments what varieties you’ve tried and loved, and be sure to check out the rebate offer!
