Face it, I’m a busy mom. You’re probably a busy mom too. And even if you’re not a busy mom, you’re probably just a busy person, because in this day and age, we just are. Running here, running there, to this event and that practice and this activity and it’s just difficult to find the time to do many of the things we need to do.
Weeknights are most especially busy for us.
With 5 teenagers who all have after-school activities, music lessons, jobs, and let’s not forget homework I always feel stressed trying to get a delicious dinner on the table that my family will love. It’s mostly about time. Some nights I only have 20 minutes to get a meal on the table, and while I love my crockpot, I don’t want to eat crockpot meals every night.
There is a brand new solution from Land O Lakes® called Sauté Express® Sauté Starters.
These wonderful little squares take the stress out of meal planning and make quick weeknight meals, delicious kid-friendly recipes, and easy family menus a totally do-able thing. The recipes that can be made quickly and easily are so full of flavor and make your #weekdaysupper sizzle.
The new Sauté Express® Sauté Starter combines butter, olive oil and a variety of herbs and spices into one convenient little wrapped square. You simply toss a Sauté Express® Square into your sauté pan and heat until it begins to bubble and sizzle. The sound is pure joy and music to my ears.
After that, you can throw some chicken, pork, shrimp or fish in there and you’ll have a meal fit for a busy family, in just 20 minutes.
They come in four scrumptious flavors: Garlic & Herb, Italian Herb, Savory Butter & Olive Oil and Lemon Pepper. I created this recipe with the Lemon Pepper Sauté Starter but on Sunday I shared my Italian Herb Shrimp Pilaf that I made using the Italian Herb Sauté Starter.
