Even at JennyJennyGenesis we have those days where we can’t get inspired to make food to put on the table and for that, we have take out, but even pizza places can grow tiresome and dare I say: wayyyy too expensive?
And so, frozen section: unite! I have tried some lately that were really quite delicious, even if I had to add a quick salad or some roasted veggies on the side.
Pizza is a natural choice for frozen food lovers, and we did try this Amy’s Margherita Pizza the other day and it had a really nice flavor. Hint: it’s even better if you brush the bottom of the pie with olive oil and garlic salt before you put in on that cookie sheet- and serve it with a nice arugula salad.
My children love pierogies, and they love them even more if I cook them with chopped bacon and sliced onion! The picture on the box shows them served with broccoli, which actually wouldn’t be a terrible idea, but the other day at Costco I found this:
A truly amazing discovery that I cooked on a sheet pan with grapeseed oil, and curry powder, salt and pepper. It was a little soggy at first, so I stuck it under my broiler for three minutes until it was crunchy and delicious!
I know, back to pizza again, and Amy’s again- but it’s seriously delicious. The sauce she uses is pretty close to perfect and these cheese pizza snacks are delightful- especially paired with cream cheese to dip and some baby carrots for balance.
And lastly but not least- is this amazing trick: eating sweet potatoes without cooking sweet potatoes. I like them especially with a good black bean burger and some mayo mixed with horseradish sauce and hot sauce! Yummm!
Some people say that May is the busiest month of the year, with the end of the year activities and Mothers Day, graduations, Confirmations, not to mention plays, recitals, and what have you…..be gentle with yourself and plan a couple of frozen meals into your dinner routine. Not only with you thank yourself later, but you will probably be surprised with the delicious options we have available to us!
