Creamy Garlic Chicken Rice Bake

Talking dinnertime today. It can look so very different for every family right?

Depending on the day of the week, time of day, dinnertime can be well thought out, beautifully set or easily the opposite. Some evenings are so busy that we are lucky to have even the simplest of dinners put out for our families.

Whatever your situation, don’t be too hard on yourself. There are plenty of times my kids get my finest paper plates and disposable cups  to eat their meal on. The point is that dinner doesn’t always have to be a beautiful picture perfect setting. It’s far more about what happens at the dinner table.

When I can get my entire family around the dinner table for a good half hour, I feel like I have succeeded. That gives us time to enjoy our meal and talk about what went on during the kids day. Are they all sitting like perfect angels the entire time? Not a chance, but that’s real life. Are they passing my quick fix meal to each other in our finest dishes? Nope, but that is also real life.

Focusing on quality conversation during those few minutes I have everyone at the table is my goal. I know that’s what my kids will remember.

Do you have go-to meals that you can get to the table quickly during the busy weeknights? I love making sure my pantry is stocked with Campbell’s Soup. So many nights I’ll whip up grilled cheese sandwiches with the kid’s favorite Campbell’s Soup for dipping.

It’s a pleasure partnering with Campbell’s Soup today to get real about dinnertime.

When time is short I am a huge fan of Campbell’s Condensed Soups for quick fix casserole ideas or slow cooker recipes that I can put together early morning so dinner is done when everyone gets home. When life is busy, keeping it simple will help ease the pressure of dinnertime. Try keeping your refrigerator stocked with fresh produce so you can have vegetables on hand. Broccoli florets are my go to vegetable when time is short. Once your water is boiling on the stovetop, stir in your broccoli and it’s fork tender in about 3 minutes.

Letting go of dinnertime perfection has brought me so much more enjoyment the last few years. We focus on good conversation, delicious simple meals and family fun. That is what the kids will remember and that is real life 🙂

    スーパーコピーモンクレール 長年にわたって、ブランパンのトゥールビヨンとの間を揺れ動くカルーセルの時計を作っていたと考えられ、2013年に、ブランパン、単に同じ運動の両方のメカニズムを含んだヴィルレカルーセルのトゥールビヨン(ここでは実際のリリース)。長い話を短くするために、私はカルーセルブランパンで選り抜きの贅沢な合併症としてのトゥールビヨンを打つことと思いません、しかし、ブランドは限られた数の両方を生産し続けます、少なくとも、それが来るとき、カルーセルへ。口径2322などの動きはとても面白いと集められるが、私の考えでは、彼らはブランドから専用の運動愛好家の選ばれた数への声明として作用するためである。私は実際に見て、新しい近代的な2322v2 2015年までにおける2322運動の復活を見て非常に驚きました。
