School’s Back: Easy Weeknight Meals

October 02, 2013

Between homework and practice, play-dates and late nights of checking your own work email, today’s busy parents don’t have a lot of time to spare. That’s why quick, healthy and easy-to prepare weeknight dinners are so important. We all need a little help—and Glory Foods has got your back.

Here are a few of our favorite quick and easy weeknight meals that meet all of the important tests: They’re tasty enough to be kid-approved. They’re healthy enough you can feel good about feeding them to your kids. And they’re quick enough you can get them on the table in 30 minutes or less.

Taco night—great for a Meatless Monday
Start out by whipping up some flavorful sweet potato and black bean tacos, which shouldn’t take much more than 15 minutes. Serve up your festive tacos with a simple side salad and some rice—or better yet, Glory Foods Seasoned Country Style String Beans and dinner’s served!

One-pot dinner idea
Our butter beans and bowtie pasta is a super-simple meatless pasta dish that’s bursting with Glory-seasoned goodness, but we like it even better when you mix in some chopped ham and Sensibly Seasoned Mixed Greens. Now you’ve got a balanced meal that took you no time at all to put together, and you even save time on cleanup because there’s only one pot! 

Chicken and noodles
Noodles are always a good choice for picky kids, and chicken and noodles are a classic combination. You can simmer the chicken breasts the night you cook this quick and easy dinner, or you can mix in leftover chicken. Either way, this perfectly seasoned quick dinner featuring the slow-roasted flavor of Glory Foods Seasoned Chicken Base will be a hit!

These are just a few ideas, there are plenty more ways to mix it up in the kitchen without taking too much time out of your busy schedule. Remember, Glory Foods is here to help you feed your family meals that are healthy, delicious and easy.
