Halloween is making life delicious {giveaway}



Halloween is right around the corner!

We are ready.

The house is decorated inside and out.
The costumes are prepared and tried on several times.
The treat bags are made up and waiting for the trick or treaters.
The pumpkin is carved.

It would appear that we have Halloween completely under control.  Why is it then, that without fail each and every Halloween, we find ourselves rushing to eat supper and get out the door by 6:15 PM?  {Maybe it is because Mommy never plans out supper well enough}

This year I have it covered.  My friends at Life Made Delicious have whipped up some easy recipes just for the little ones to gobble up, in time to head out for an evening of fun.



One of my go-to meals has always been Hamburger Helper, and that is what I will be serving my children before we trick or treat on Monday.

My in-laws are beef farmers, so there is always ground beef in my freezer, and I have no shame in admitting to always having a box or two of Hamburger Helper in the pantry.  Pair the two together and you have a hot, fresh meal on the table within minutes!   I often taylor my meals in small ways, like adding grated cheese over top or throwing a few handfuls of our favourite frozen veggies.

Check specially marked boxes of Hamburger Helper in stores now, for a money saving coupon for a FREE bag of Green Giant Frozen Vegetables!

One little box has so many possibilities!

Leftover veggies are sometimes added to the creamy HH.

Selmada said...

We're actually vegetarians so our biggest secret ingredient is that I use the soy ground round instead of meat.
I am also a huge squash fan and often have some puree around so will toss some in for more veggies than just what is on the side.
