I find it difficult to fit everything I need to do in a day. The things I want to do are usually put on the backburner, or mentally filed away under ‘Maybe in the next lifetime’.
I would love to be able to make nice dinners from scratch every day, but the reality is that daily life gets busy and some days I am thankful that we’ve stocked up on some reliable dinner options that you can just pull out of the pantry or freezer and prepare quickly. For this reason, we always have soup, noodles, frozen vegetables, frozen meat and meal options like Hamburger Helper on hand.
I often buy them when they are on sale and they store well for a long time. And not only are they life savers when you are looking for something quick, but they also help when you find yourself on maternity leave and between paychecks. On weeks when we are a little low on funds, or a big purchase is coming up (like our trip back home for a visit in December), we can add our quick meal options in to save on our weekly grocery budget.
Hamburger Helper has a promotion on right now to help you save money while stocking up on these pantry and freezer must-haves. Keep your eyes open for the Free Green Giant frozen vegetables promotion that can be found on specially marked Hamburger Helper packages starting this month. You will get a coupon for FREE Green Giant frozen vegetables (750g) with your next purchase of a Hamburger Helper dinner kit.
So, how do you eat your Hamburger Helper? Do you like it as is? Or do you get creative and add your own ingredient(s). I find that peas, broccoli or onions always make great additions.
