Last month I shared my discovery of Gorton’s Shrimp Bowls and how they were becoming a staple in our freezer. Justin is loving them and has been requesting them for easy lunches at work. We’re so busy that I often find myself putting something in the microwave before we head out for the evening.
So when I find myself wanting to buy something more than once, I know I’ve found something good. We’re partnering with Gorton’s to share more about how Gorton’s Shrimp Bowls continue to make my busy mom life easy when I’m hungry!
DINNER MADE EASY WITH GORTON’S SHRIMP BOWLS
I like making dinner for my family, but when we get home from school around 4:00 and have to be at a baseball practice or game by 5:30 it starts to feel like a challenge. Actually more stress than a challenge.
The kids are good and are happy with a sandwich before we head out. We usually treat them to something from the concessions stand, especially when we’re there for two games or practices. (The magic of having two kids play, right?)
When I first shared about Gorton’s Shrimp Bowls, I mentioned that when we’re at the ball field I’m often tempted by all the goodies at the concessions stand. I like to support the league too, right?
But I’m trying to make better choices when it comes to what I eat. I’m notorious for snacking if I don’t feel like my recent meal was satisfying. Feeling satisfied without cooking a meal can be hard.
I think that’s why the new Shrimp Bowls have found a spot on our weekly shopping list.
WHY GORTON’S SHRIMP BOWLS WORK FOR BUSY MOMS
There are a few factors that make Gorton’s Shrimp Bowls work so well on the nights when it feels like we barely have any time between the end of the school day and baseball practice or a game.
- Single Serving Size
- Quick and Easy to Make
- Delicious Flavors
- Complete Meal
When you add all of these things together, it’s pretty obvious why the Gorton’s Shrimp Bowls have become microwave dinners we look for every time I’m at the grocery store.
LUNCH OR DINNER IN 6 MINUTES
When there’s only an hour or so before we have to leave the house again, being able to make myself a meal that’s full of flavor and is ready in just six minutes makes sense.
There’s no way I’m going to whip up a batch of risotto with shrimp in less than 10 minutes. But with Gorton’s, I can enjoy the Black Garlic & Wine Risotto Shrimp Bowl and feel like I’m indulging.
The quick cook time means I actually have time to sit down with the kids while they eat and enjoy my meal!
COMPLETE MEAL IN A SINGLE SERVING
There are a lot of things you can make in a few minutes, but Gorton’s Shrimp Bowls offer a complete meal in a single serving bowl. That means I don’t waste any food and that I don’t have to prepare more than I need.
There’s something special about enjoying a bowl of Shrimp and mushroom risotto in a black garlic and wine sauce that makes me feel like I’m indulging. Having it all in one bowl makes it convenient and it’s definitely more fulfilling than putting together a sandwich or grabbing a bowl of cereal!
(Yes, sandwiches and cereal are some of the staples of my busy mom life. I’ll admit it!)
RISOTTO AND SOBA NOODLES!
Oh, and for some variety, there are two different flavors to choose from!
- Black Garlic & Wine Risotto Shrimp Bowl
- Stir Fry with Soba Noodles Shrimp Bowl
My favorite just depends on my mood really! They’re both full of flavors I enjoy now that I’ve tried them the both!
So while Gorton’s has always been a staple in our house (my kids live for the Crunchy Breaded Fish Sticks), after enjoying the Shrimp Bowls for a few weeks, they’ve also become a staple! They’re a great addition to my rotation of easy dinners for myself. When I only need to feed myself, convenience is key! But finding flavors I enjoy is right up there too!
