Once upon a time I was that chick who ate out most meals. Eleven years ago when I first left New York and moved to Atlanta and no longer had mom’s house around the corner, I became Queen of takeout. Not only was a dropping money left and right ordering in or dining out with friends I was not eating healthy by any means.
Fast forward a few years, and I buckled down and learned or rather embraced cooking. I quickly found out that this was something I enjoyed and did well. Lucky for the Mr. in my life I’m comfortable in the kitchen and spending time creating nice meals is something I find fun and relaxing. We both work and sometimes have other things going on where we just don’t have a chance to be in the kitchen for hours putting together a balanced meal.
Some of the new America’s Choice® Creations offerings from Save-A-Lot come in handy for the nights when I need to get dinner on the table in 30 minutes, or less and I’m too tired to cook. I’m no spring chicken anymore, and fast food doesn’t burn off and quickly as it once did. I much rather keep a few heat and eat items on hand that I can pair with some veggies and make a complete meal. With 13 new meal and snack options from the America’s Choice® Creations line exclusive to Save-A-Lot, there is sure to be something to satisfy every taste bud.
Even paired with a side dish each of these meals was extremely budget friendly and able to be whipped up in no time. Prices may vary by location. In the store, I visited in Birmingham, AL no item was over $7.99.
I loved that I could come home and pop them in the oven to cook while I whipped up a quick side pairing. By the time the evening news was finished, we were ready to sit down and eat. Dinner made simple and affordable, can’t beat that.
I paired the Salmon with some Brocollini seasoned with fresh garlic, salt, pepper and lightly sauteed in olive oil with a side of couscous.
Meal Two: Supreme Pizza
A simple salad was the perfect pairing for Pizza night. No mess, no fuss, dinner in a snap.
Meal Three: America’s Choice® Creations Crab Cakes
Dessert: New York Style Cheesecake. Some cherries, fresh blackberries and a mint sprig were the perfect topping for the deliciabtle creamy cheesecake. It didn’t last long, we devoured it!
