Thank goodness for those ready-made roasted chickens at the local grocery store. Seriously, they have saved me more times than not. A great price and we all love chicken at our house. After I pick up the kids from school, we make a quick stop to pick one up, and on the way home, I think of a side dish to make. Stir-fried carrots or broccoli, peas and corn, all of which the kids like or if hubby and I are looking for a lighter dinner, mixed salad greens as a side. All those things can be prepped, cooked and served by the time my kids have washed their hands and set the table. Hallelujah!
I think grocery stores should look into other ready-made protein. Beef roast? Pork loin? That would really help out busy moms and dads and have them feel that they are still feeding their families healthily.
