Quick and easy dinner in 30 minutes? Yes, please! #Giveaway

This post about making a quick and easy dinner is brought to you by our friends at Lunchbox.  Opinions are my own.

I cook meals from scratch almost every night of the week (less if I can manage to cook enough to last 2 nights), but lately, with the hectic schedule we’ve been on, we’ve had some nights where we got home at 5:30 and I realized I hadn’t planned ahead enough or something, and on those nights, I’m always glad to have a quick and easy side like Knorr Sides.


2 Tuesdays each month, I meet with my Brownie troop. 2 Tuesdays each month, we rush home to get dinner on the table after meetings.  I need something quick and easy to get prepped and served if I haven’t already made dinner in the early afternoon (which I have less and less time to do lately) and Knorr Sides definitely help to get our dinner on the table fast.
