I’ve shared a few times about our journey into little league baseball and how it’s teaching me new things about being a mom! From figuring out equipment and snacks to keep Carrigan happy while Weston plays to making sure my family gets dinner before the games, I’m working on new tips and tricks every day! Luckily game night dinner ideas just got a bit easier for us!
Easy Game Night Dinner Ideas for the Family
I’ve got quite a few easy dinner recipes in my back pocket that I pull out on game nights. Sometimes we even hit up a drive through on the way home too. But it’s nice to have as many easy game night dinner ideas as possible! Campbell’s new products are helping me add to my arsenal without much work at all!
This week we tried the Pace® and Prego® Ready Meals when we had less than an hour between the time Justin got home and we had to be at the ball fields!
The Ready Meals are a new line of microwaveable meals from Pace® and Prego®. They are microwaveable and you have a simple meal that’s ready in 60 seconds! They feature Italian and southwest flavors that my family loves which makes them a great option. Justin actually likes to grab one to take to work for lunch too!
One of my favorite features is that you can enjoy the meals in the pouch or dish them out and serve them. Each pouch is a single serving so there’s no worry about measuring servings out. If you’re pressed for time, this is a great solution! It’s a simple plan of attack for dinner time with real food from brands that we’ve trusted in our kitchen for years!
Weston thinks eating out of the pouch is tons of fun. As a mom, I love the convenience of it!
While the convenience is a a great factor, I love how easy it is to turn the Pace® and Prego® Ready Meals into a plated dinner by just adding a side dish! This week I picked up some of our favorite kale salad at the grocery store to pair with the Prego® Ready Meals Marinara & Italian Sausage Rotini! It was a huge hit with the entire family!
