I have an announcement to make. WE’RE BUSY. Yes, it’s true. We’re at the start of what sometimes feels like the busiest time of the year for our family and I know we’re not alone. So I’m focused on sharing some of the things that make our lives easier as we transition from summer into the routine and packed schedules of fall! One of my latest discoveries is NEW Gorton’s Shrimp Bowls.
We’re partnering with Gorton’s to share about our experience so read on to learn more about why these are a staple in our freezer these days!
GORTON’S SHRIMP BOWLS
I love to cook up easy recipes for my family but there are nights when it just doesn’t happen, especially once baseball starts and we have to head over to the fields for the evening. The kids are easy to please when it comes to a quick dinner but I find that I burn out fairly easily without some variety.
I love our busy life because it’s packed full of so much fun and we always end up with a ton of great memories, but I am also one of those people who gets HANGRY easily. Dinner has to happen early in the evening or I will be snacking on concessions all night long.
So, on these busy nights dinner has to be quick and easy, but I also want to be able to have flavors I enjoy as an adult. I’ll do my fair share of macaroni and cheese or peanut butter and jelly. But sometimes I want to feel a bit more grown up.
This is where Gorton’s Shrimp Bowls have found a place in our kitchen.
GORTON’S SHRIMP BOWLS = FLAVOR
Gorton’s Seafood has always been a brand you can find in our freezer. My kids (even my picky eater) enjoy the Crunchy Breaded Fish Sticks while I love how the Grilled Fillets make it convenient for me to make better choices. Oh, and the Beer Batter Fish Fillets are perfect for making fish sandwiches at home!
So the NEW Gorton’s Shrimp Bowls were a no-brainer when I spotted them in the frozen food section. They’re a complete meal that you can have ready in under six minutes! That is perfect for even the busiest of nights!
Plus, they come in two very different varieties that all pack some great flavor!
- Stir Fry with Soba Noodles Shrimp Bowl
- Black Garlic & Wine Risotto Shrimp Bowl
The flavor options are great for when I’m craving something a bit more than a sandwich and chips before we head out the door!
It’s a hard decision to make but right now my favorite flavor is the Stir Fry with Soba Noodles Shrimp Bowl. I have a noodle craving every few weeks and I’ve discovered that Gorton’ Shrimp Bowls kick it to the curb when I have the Stir Fry with Soba Noodles Shrimp Bowl for dinner!
Taking care of those cravings is also important if I’m headed to the ball fields because otherwise I’m tempted by all the snack food there that aren’t really the makings for a meal. But the combination of Shrimp, soba noodles, perfectly seasoned veggies, and a delicious soy ginger sauce is definitely delicious and filling!
GORTON’S SHRIMP BOWLS = CONVENIENCE
I’ve found myself reaching for Gorton’s Shrimp Bowls this week because of the convenience factor. You pop one in the microwave and have dinner for one in minutes. The individual bowl keeps the cleanup factor low too. When you’re walking out the door and won’t be home until after dark, it’s nice to have an option that doesn’t a lot of prep or cleanup.
I can also whip up peanut butter sandwiches for my kids while my dinner is cooking and we can even sit together at the table before we go! By saving time in the kitchen, I’m less stressed out and can enjoy my time with the kids.
We all need to give ourselves a break sometimes! Anything that prevents that hangry feeling and helps me spend more time with my family is something I want to try! If you’re looking for the same, then Gorton’s Shrimp Bowls could be a great dinner option for your busiest nights!
