I may feel like it sometimes, but I am not Superwoman.
Like most Moms and Dads, my husband and I can multitask with the best of them. As busy parents, it is a bit of a necessity to be able to do several things at once. I can fold laundry, help my son with his spelling words, supervise my daughters art project (and assist with extra glitter), all while sipping my reheated coffee and stopping my youngest from scaling the rock fireplace. We are talking ninja level skill here. But even I need a bit of help in the kitchen now and then. Yes, I cook 99% of our family meals, but sometimes life has a way of getting in the way. Even when I make meals ahead and tuck them in the freezer, it isn’t always an option when time and energy are at an all time low. So I started keeping a few convenience items around to help me out on my overly scheduled days.
What did we reach for most often? Frozen pizza. We don’t have to leave the house and we discovered a brand that tastes better (yes, better) than anything we could have delivered. Freschetta Pizza has always been a favorite, but now they have new Artisan Crust® Pizzas! Three whole grains in the crust and you can absolutely taste the difference. They bake up in the time it takes me to throw together a healthy side to serve along with it!
I buy my Freschetta at Publix and it is easy to locate in the frozen section with all the other pizzas. I love to stock up and right now, all Freschetta pizzas (excluding Gluten-Free) are two for ten dollars from now through the first week of June. Needless to say, my freezer is full! The ingredients are quality and while we have been inhaling the Artisan Crust lately, we often enjoy the Brick Oven and Rising Crust pizzas as well. All I have to do on pizza night is whip up a fresh side to go along with it and dinner is d-o-n-e done. With flavors like Freschetta ® Artisan Chicken and Fire Roasted Vegetable Pizza and my personal favorite, Freschetta ® Artisan Margherita Pizza, it is super easy to find a kind that everyone enjoys! You can check out all the incredible Freschetta products by clicking here. They are also on Facebook, Twitter, and even YouTube!My family loves a good green salad with our pizza, but lately, I have been trying to branch out. Broccoli slaw has been the answer to busting any green veggie boredom with my kids. So fresh and crunchy and ridiculously healthy, this slaw comes together in the time it takes your kids to set the table. It is heartier than regular slaw so it won’t get soggy like cabbage will. If you previously avoided coleslaw due to the bitterness of the vegetables this is your answer! A light dressing and quick toss and you have the perfect cool and crisp side salad.
Hm. Turns out I am a bit like Superwoman after all.
