Fall Favorite Dinner Recipe

This week has already been a whirlwind of busy! My children attend an amazing Charter school. There are so many things I love about this school, but one of the things I really appreciate is their focus on the Performing Arts. This year the school will be performing 3 plays, and so far all 3 of my school aged children have been cast in 2 of the plays! My daughter Samantha was just cast as the Snow Queen and Caleb was cast as Colonel Hathi (the elephant) in the Jungle Book and Rebekah was cast as a monkey.  I am really looking forward to these performances, but it does mean we are busy with a capital B!

Today I wanted to share with you a super fantastic AND easy meal recipe that I created one night when time was scarce with one of my family’s all time favorites! It is one of those perfect Fall recipes, that are just meant to be enjoyed on a night when the temperatures start dropping. I know that this recipe received 2 thumbs up from everyone in my family, even the picky toddler! That is winning at dinner time folks!

I am also sharing my deliciously simple recipe for homemade biscuits. If you have 20 minutes, you can make them. I promise that once you have had them you will never want to buy store bought biscuits again!

These biscuits can also be made ahead of time and frozen, so that you can bring them out on a night when you too find that you are short on time.

Hamburger Helper® is one of my family’s favorite meals. The kids love it, ask for it, and leave no leftovers when it is served! So imagine my excitement when I found out that this week my local Albertsons is having a Stock Up Sale on some of my family’s favorites, like Hamburger Helper®.

I remember when I was single and would do my weekly grocery shopping. It took maybe an hour from start to finish, and I could load all of my groceries into just a handful of bags.

Now with 4 growing children, grocery shopping is a little more tricky. Mainly because, my children eat a lot and that requires a lot more shopping and planning! So when I get the opportunity to stock up and save on some of my children’s favorites food items, it is something to look forward to!

I came home from shopping and my children happily put away the groceries without complaining, because I had purchased some of their absolute favorites! To my children, it would seem that there is happiness to be found in a pantry full of Hamburger Helper® and the promise of Honey Nut Cheerios® for breakfast!

Take a look at some of the great items I stocked up on!

I don’t think I am alone here, but mornings are rough. I am NEVER ready for that alarm to go off at 6:30, but it is easier to get moving if I know that one of these creamy delights are waiting for me! Thank you Albertsons Stock Up Sale!

I would love to hear how you get shopping done for your family, and what sale items you would like to Stock Up on!

Stay Happy! Stay Informed!

Love,

Jen

  1. I can remember spending $20.00 a week on groceries. That was my budget. Okay, it was back in the 70s, but still. We pretty much each the same type of food and it’s just the two of us so we buy groceries every two weeks with occasional stops for fresh veggies and salads.

    The one thing I can’t run out of is Lean Cuisine pizza. I love my pizza and it’s not very many calories either.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

      Hah, that is awesome! I think I spent about 40 to 60 when it was just me. Now, whew! I wish I could go down to the the 2 week grocery schedule. As my kids are growing I find it harder and harder to gauge just how much they will eat and sometimes they can go through an entire container of something in minutes!

  2. Your kids school sounds awesome, Jen! I love the performing arts aspect. What a gift to your kids. Those sliders look like a perfect busy school night meal. Your idea to freeze them makes it even better. I’m really wanting to make more freezer friendly food to stock up for busy/lazy nights :). Thanks for the recipe!

    Hah that sounds like my husband. He says his shining theatrical debut and conclusion to his career all took place in 5th grade. He was cast as the lead character Mr. Grumpy and felt it fit so well he decided to personally carry on the character, but not act in any more plays!

    Glad you liked this recipe!

  4. Hi Jen, it is all go in your house with three children learning their parts in plays! But it will be worth it when you see them up there doing their bit.

    Dinner can be a nightmare when your busy and these Hamburger Helper sliders sound the business for a quick dinner. We don’t get Hamburger Helper here, but we do get nice Greek yogurt and Honey Nut Cheerios and you can’t have everything!

    I am a stocker upper. When things we use are on special I tend to go a little overboard. At the moment we have six loaves of bread in the fridge and have been known to have ten one liter tubs of Greek yogurt at a time…. Then I wonder why with three fridges I just don’t have enough room!

      Haha, that is awesome! Your fridge sounds like mine! I buy bread in bulk and stick those things in the freezer to bring out for later!

      I am sad you don’t get Hamburger Helper, it is one of the easiest family pleasing dinners ever! Add that to the box of items I need to send over to you one day!

      It’s funny, but I never had Hamburger Helper until I was married and my husband informed me it was the best thing ever and that I really needed to try it. How neat that you have made it from scratch!

  5. Snow White?? I love that. She’s my spirit animal.
    Also, I love that you and I have discovered the awesomeness of SoFab. The best, right? Perhaps we’ll meet at a conference!
    Lastly, your version of hamburger sliders aligns exactly with mine.

    1. Haha! That would be fun to meet at a conference! These sliders seriously were so good! I ate far more than I should have, but it was in the pursuit of scientific research and all to make sure it was a good recipe!

  6. I feel so busy, and we’ve only got three children and two nights of extracurriculars. I can only imagine how busy you are with four kids and all those activities. Thanks for sharing a quick meal for busy nights!
