As a newly back to work mother, I always seem to be in a hurry as well as always stuck in a rut when it comes to making dinner. I try to look for new meal ideas, but seem to make the same thing it seems week after week. I'm not sure if its because I am fresh out of ideas, don't have a whole lot of time to prepare a great meal, or just plain tired. There are so many great options out there in the stores, yet sometimes I would rather go out than to make a meal and do all of the clean up afterward. I was so excited recently to get the opportunity to do a "spark" from My Blog Sprak for Lawry's. We use A LOT of Lawry's products around out house, especially in the summer with all of the great grilling marinades and spices that Lawry's provides to us. Here is what I received:
A large glass marinating dish with lid and FOUR varieties of Lawry's new seasoning mixes, perfect for cooking that fast and easy meal that we all crave as busy mommies (and daddies!). Hubby and I were excited to try these varieties of seasoning mixes, OK I was quite excited to try the big marinating dish as well! The first one we tried was the Tuscan Style Chicken Marsala with Garlic and Basil. We are lovers of anything garlic and the kids love their chicken. This was so easy to make and talk about quick, we were all sitting down for dinner in no time. All I needed to do was cut the chicken in thin slices, brown it with a little olive oil, add fresh mushrooms, a little water, and the seasoning packet and let the sauce cook until it is thick. We serves it over some extra wide egg noodles and had a tossed salad with it for an absolute complete and satisfying meal. The flavor was amazing and everyone couldn't stop raving about it. It sure made my night a lot easier and not a whole lot of clean up was involved. Less than a half an hour from start to finish!
These great seasoning flavors from Lawry's include:
*Asian Style Beef & Broccoli- This easy to prepare stir fry meal will remind your family of their favorite Asian restaurant. This dish combines beef, broccoli, and seasonings with a hint of garlic. Serve it over rice for a complete and satisfying meal.
*Chimichurri Burrito Casserole- Lawry's gives the Burrito casserole a new twist with this Latin American sauce. With a few simple fresh ingredients, mealtime just got a little more exciting!
*Mediterranean Sun Dried Tomato & Garlic Chicken- Add a taste of the Mediterranean to your family's casserole. This easy to bake casserole combines chicken, pasta, tomatoes, and Feta cheese for a flavorful meal any night of the week.
*Tuscan Style Chicken Marsala with Garlic & Basil- This effortless version of a restaurant favorite comes together on your stovetop with just a few fresh ingredients. Flavorful garlic and basil gives this meal it's own Tuscan flair, perfect for serving over pasta and rice.
