Meals in Minutes with Nestle and Hot Pockets2:37 PM
Most of you know that I've been working with Nestlé to give you great ideas for back-to-school convenience. I'm one of those Moms who really tries to balance the easy factor with nutrition (no frozen pizza every night.) With my husband gently reminding me to include a green veggie at every meal, I've been able to provide my kids the best of both worlds -- convenience and healthy can work together.
Here is an "Oh-my-goodness-it's-6pm-and-I-forgot-to-thaw-out-a-chunk-of-meat" meal that I put together on the fly. It included Hot Pockets Pizza Stix, frozen peas, and apples. The entire meal cost no more than $4.75 and it fed 3 little people and one big person. Total cost per person was $1.18.
Is it my finest work? No. Am I proud that I could throw it together in less than 15 minutes and my kiddos were happy and full? You betcha!
Here are some pics of our adventure (I baked the Pizza Stix in the oven), and the final presentation. Needless to say, they were gone in minutes.
