Here in our neck of the woods, school is in full swing and life for my great big family is seriously crazy! Already we are running from point A to point B and back again and then to point C and D and then back to A. I may or may not be feeling a little overwhelmed already. But when I get overwhelmed, I use my planner and I begin to make lists and plans and well, that eventually leads to menu planning. Mealtime is difficult during the school year with everyone going different directions. That’s why I turn to Tyson®. More importantly, I turn to Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips. I keep several of these bags that I get from Walmart in my freezer at ALL times.Tyson at WalmartThey truly make mealtime easier and Walmart has them all.
