Figuring Out Easy Meal Plans With Kids

Lately, we’ve kind of gotten into a rut with our meal planning, especially dinner. Breakfast and lunch seem to be really easy to plan and prepare but by the time I get home from work at the end of the day and the kids are exhausted from a full day of the usual kid shenanigans, I tend to turn to just feed the kids and skip dinner for myself.

Before actually becoming parents, Richard and I always talked about how important family meals were and how we would never be a family where everyone was eating dinner at a different time. Fast forward to the real world and it’s easier said than done so I’m always looking for easy-to-prepare and healthy options that my kids will actually eat.familymeal - 6

We recently tried Birds Eye Broccoli Ranch Vegetables and Farm Rich® Smokehouse brisket from Walmart. We even let our kids pick out the vegetables themselves so they were more eager to try them than usual. The brisket was soooo good and is made from quality cuts of meat. I love that these products are frozen because I don’t have to worry about them going bad too fast if I don’t use them right away. I hate how much food we waste because I buy it and then our plans change and we don’t end up eating it quickly enough. I’ve almost entirely switched to frozen vegetables at this point and it’s nice to also have frozen meat on hand as well.

This is definitely one of those busy night meals that you can quickly heat up and put together a meal that covers the basic food groups and avoid a last minute trip urge to order pizza. We made delicious tacos (recipe for taco shell) with the brisket and scarfed down the broccoli (pretending they are trees works every time!).
