This post brought to you by Dollar General. All opinions are 100% mine.
Did you know that you can find KRAFT products at Dollar General? All the ones you know and love and possibly some you haven't tried yet.
I'd like to say that I cook dinner completely from scratch every night, but it doesn't actually work out that way. Life gets busy. So my family takes turns cooking, and also uses some prepared foods for meals. KRAFT Salad Dressings are a big one, as marinades, to mix into dips, or even occasionally as a salad dressing. There is a recipe for a very easy KRAFT Creamy Ranch dip on the Dollar General site that tastes fantastic with carrots and dips are a great way to get almost anyone to eat vegetables.
For fast to make menu planning for busy evenings, Dollar General has a lot of recipes. Since a lot of the ingredients are shelf stable, you can stock up and be ready for those busy days when nobody has time for cooking. I've found knowing there are quick meal solutions available helps keep my family from eating fast food as often, and even if it's a quick meal, we still get to sit down together.
My favorite recipe on the Dollar General site? The Frosty Strawberry Pops- They are sweet, easy, cold and my family likes them, and they have a lot of vitamin C in them!
Favorite product? PLANTERS nuts. Hands down, they are fantastic, in the cans or in single serving packs. These get packed along with CAPRI SUN for hikes, long drives (Alaska State Fair is next week, and that's a 2 hour drive with the traffic!), and all sorts of things. You might not be able to bring nuts to school, but you can bring them everywhere else if you aren't allergic.
Dollar General has coupons, recipes and ideas to simplify those busy, busy days.
