As parents we are hustling to get our job, house work, and homework done each day. By Thursday I dread hearing the backpack hit the table and seeing papers pouring out of the homework folder. I know that homework is necessary and practice makes perfect.
However, I have had a long day at work, I have a pile of laundry the size of Mount Fuji, and dishes still in the sink from breakfast. Oh and EVERYONE is hungry!
On Thursday I have to hit the pause button. SERIOUSLY! I am in my late 30s and life has me wiped out. Let me tell you about the Simple Solutions Family Meal at Schnucks. No more crash-and-burn Thursdays.
I run into Schnucks Grocery Store and head straight to the deli. I grab one of those delicious-smelling whole roasted chickens and a couple of sides. Conveniently, Schnucks has Coca-Cola™ products by the roasted chickens. We like Gold Peak® Tea with our Family Meal.
Look at all those sides to choose from. I recommend the broccoli raisin salad and the macaroni salad. So creamy and so good!!!
Make dinner clean-up a breeze by grabbing some paper plates too. The whole meal is the best bang for your buck. It doesn’t cost any more than making all these recipes at home. You basically have a free chef. We have spaghetti night, taco night, pizza night, and Schnucks night.
If you need to find your closest Schnucks Grocery Store use their Store Locator.
Here is a bonus with the whole roasted chicken. Use the leftovers to make something delicious like this Fall Chicken Salad Recipe below. I love it for lunch the day.
This leftover roasted chicken recipe is loaded with sweet bursts of craisins and apples. It has crunch from the fresh celery and pecans. You get two meals from one roasted chicken and you don’t even have fire up the stovetop or the oven. It feels like a vacation.
