We’ve got 3 busy girls and only 24 hours in a day. That often isn’t enough time for cooking. Last night, we fixed sandwiches on the way out the door for volleyball game. Tonight, I managed to throw together breakfast for dinner quickly before I took the youngest to Girl Scouts.
A menu is a sanity saver for our busy family, but even the best laid plans fall apart when things get chaotic. Traffic is bad, a meeting runs over, a kid remembers she needs to be somewhere 30 minutes earlier than expected, and the next thing you know there isn’t time to actually cook the meal you had planned.
My solution has been to freeze a few meals to toss in the oven when the day gets away from me. And, by meals, I mostly mean lasagnas. The longest part of making lasagna is boiling down the and sauce. Which means it’s super easy to make 3-4 lasagnas in about the same amount of time as one.
So, I do. The spares go in the freezer and can easily be reheated without a lot of effort. I love having a delicious backup plan ready to go when life gets insane. That’s why I was excited to see Hunt´s cut tomatoes on the Kroger Cart Buster list — I can stockup for my next lasagna-rama!
There are plenty of other deals to keep us fed on busy nights, too. Ragu pasta sauce is the official spaghetti sauce of Mom’s Night Out (kids love pasta, I don’t!) and Wishbone dressing is my go-to favorite for quick, dinner salads. There are deals throughout the store on so many of my favorite brands.
Plus, you can download a digital coupon for a different product each day straight to your shopper card at the Cart Buster site for great deals on your favorite products at the Kroger Co. Family of Stores!
