Getting healthy and tasty meals on the table every night can sometimes be a challenge. Add being a working mom, all the household chores, kids getting homework done, activities on top, sure makes for one busy time of the day. I know dinner time in our house some days are quite crazy and all I want to do is call for take out. Then I remember we want to stay on budget and eat healthy.
Some nights I have worked the night before and just got up from a short nap. Other nights I am trying to get the kids off to Boys and Girls Club, soccer or some other activity. On these nights I like fast and simple. Just because I am opting for fast and simple doesn't mean we can't eat healthy and tasty meals. Here is where something I call grocery store helpers are great! These helpers are things like sauces, frozen cut veggies, potatoes etc.
Our family loves the typical meat, potatoes and veggie kind of meals, hubby and I both grew up on them. Our daughter loves potatoes cooked or raw, even our pup loves raw potatoes. Most of the time I don't mind peeling and cutting potatoes (well most of the time I just scrub them and cut, no peeling) but on these nights that we are rush or tired, I like to grab a bag of Cavendish wedges or fries. Recently we tried out the From the Farm red potatoes that are chopped up fine sort of like hash browns. We had sausages, veggies and the red potatoes.
If you haven't tried the Cavendish From the Farm selection you may want to grab a bag the next time you are in the grocery store to try them out. The red potatoes are harvested exclusively from the rich red soil of PEI. They leave the skin on and prepare them with 100% canola oil and lightly season with sea salt. They are super quick to make, preheat oven, rip open bag, dump on cookie sheet and bake, turning once or twice depending on how crispy you like them. I love that they are low in saturated fats and taste soooo good.
Head over to the Cavendish Farms website for some great recipes, to see all the products available and learn more about potatoes in their Potatoes 101 page.
