#Win $25 GC and Barber Seasoned Selects with some #dinnerdrama


Do you ever have "Dinner Drama?"  I know that we all have had some so don't deny it! haha  My greatest "dinner drama" issues are usually related to not planning enough time to get something prepared or trying out a new recipe and it flops.  The worse part about a recipe flop  is that most of the time there isn't a back up plan.  I can think of one time we had to go out to eat because of a flop recipe and no time for back up food to be prepared.

I'm really good with planning out our meals.  This has taken years to get right but it is the only way this momma can function in the kitchen.  The saying "if you fail to plan then you plan to fail" always rings in my head when I let the grocery shopping day slip by and I'm digging in the freezer, fridge and pantry for a suitable throw together meal.  I don't like haphazard meal time and try and avoid it to the max!

I am a Mom who likes to make most of the food that I prepare.  I do find myself grabbing for some frozen items to have on hand when needed.  With tween & teens at home and their random friends who happen to be here for snack and lunch time, I do keep easy to make items on hand like pizza rolls & chicken patties.   As for dinner, If I purchase something frozen that is the main meal or side dish, most likely I planned that into my menu.
Just recently I found Barber Seasoned Selects chicken breast as one of those dinner go to items. My family tried the Chicken Cordon Bleu and Chicken Broccoli & Cheese.  They ate all their food!  I was super impressed that they like the Cordon Bleu. I made this years ago and they didn't like it.  So now I have something new to serve them.   The Chicken Seasoned Selects cook in less than 30 minutes!  While the chicken cooked, I tossed together rest of the meal!

There was NO dinner drama with this meal! yay!  I'm going to keep these lil' guys on hand so I can cook some 30 minute meals!  Most of all, I was SHOCKED to find these at my local store.  I live in a small town and seem to never find anything fun like this!

    My dinner drama is to get DDs to eat green beans. Dinner time is a big challenge with picky eaters.

  36. Dinner drama for me is when I have all the ingredients I need for a meal... except for one! So we either eat sandwiches instead, or I make my hubby run to the store. ;)

  52. I was cooking easter dinner last year, we have a second oven in the basement, and since I was busy upstairs I told the hubby to go put the glaze on the ham. I should have been more specific, cuz he just opened the pouch and dumped the dry mix on the ham...the whole house was filled with smoke.

  67. Dinner Drama -- My ex-husband and I were celebrating something (?) and we had saved up to buy these BEAUTIFUL steaks. Baked potatoes, vegetables. It was a beautiful meal. Rolls. Everything! At that time, we didn't have a dinner table so we ate at the coffee table. Someone knocked on our front door, which literally was 3 feet from the coffee table.

    I got up to get the door. It was for him. He walk over to talk to the visitor. By the time I could get back to my plate our dog had taken my steak and EATEN THE ENTIRE THING.

    I was CRUSHED. I had been craving that steak for a month!

    Yep....major dinner drama. After that I was too sad to eat. ha ha ha
