Let me first warn you – if you are looking for a fancy meal, you can just click right past my blog today. Same goes if you are against using pre-made ingredients.
There seems to be a stigma in the food blogging world that pre-packaged ingredients are “not cool”. I will totally agree that many of them contain ingredients that aren’t the best for us or our families. But I think I’m all about keeping it real. I pride myself on being a “normal” girl who makes “normal” food. I do like to get down and dirty every now and again and make something really elegant or complex, but for the most part, I’m about easy, fast, everyday meals. And if you have to use a few pre-made products to get dinner on the table instead of going through the McDonald’s drive thru, I’d say use the pre-made products!
That being said, I really think my cooking has changed a lot since I started this blog. But cooking has become more of a hobby for me than a necessity. But for most families, getting dinner on the table is just a necessary part of the day. And on days when time seems short and you don’t know how you are going to make it happen, meals like this are a life saver. This recipe is exactly what I would expect out of a Pillsbury cookbook. But I have to admit, as easy as it was, both my husband and I really loved these! And the leftovers were even better. And this meal saved me from another dinner of jalepeno poppers from the frozen section of the grocery store. I’d say it was a winner!
