I am always looking for quick and easy meal ideas for my family. I came up with this 30 minute family meal idea and thought y’all might enjoy it. This is a big meal that utilizes frozen convenience foods with the addition of fresh ingredients. Utilizing those frozen foods is one way I get dinner on the table quickly. This post is sponsored by Kroger however all projects and opinions are my own.
Start with a trip to the freezer section at your local Kroger store. I have a few recipe ideas for you below but you can also head to the Fresh Ideas from the Freezer site for even more easy recipes and coupons. I picked up the following items for my meal. See the specific recipes below to make sure you get everything you need.
Margherita Pizza Recipe
- California Pizza Kitchen Margherita Pizza
- Fresh mozzarella
Bake the pizza according to the package instructions but pull it out about half way through the cooking time. Layer on slices of fresh mozzarella. Put pizza back in the oven and cook the remainder of the time. Slice and serve up this delicious pizza for your family!
Chicken Florentine Recipe
- Birds Eye Voila Chicken Florentine
- Cherry tomatoes
- Fresh Parmesan cheese
Cook the chicken florentine according to the package directions. Add some cherry tomatoes during the last few minutes of cooking. Add to a serving bowl and shred fresh Parmesan cheese over the top.
Lemon Meringue Parfaits
- Marie Callender’s Lemon Meringue Pie
- Fresh strawberries
- Fresh blueberries
- Whipped topping
- Mason jars
Use the mason jars to score the top of the still frozen pie. Cut around the scored line with your knife all the way to the bottom of the pie.
Add the frozen round to the bottom of a jelly sized mason jar. Add fresh blueberries and sliced strawberries to the jar. Top with whipped topping and additional fruit if desired. Allow to sit on the counter until the pie is thawed before serving.
This 30 minute family meal idea is perfect for any night of the week. A well balanced meal that your entire family will love. Pick up the ingredients for this meal from the freezer section of your local Kroger store. You can also try one of the Fresh Ideas from the Freezer here. Either way, be sure to consider the items in the freezer section for your meal planning.
