PostHeaderIcon Keystone Quick Beef Mix-Up for Kids Sport Nights

Keystone Logo
I am always on the hunt for super fast things to make on the kid’s baseball game nights. As if having 4 sons isn’t crazy enough, add two sons that play baseball. This quite often makes for a tad of chaos when it comes to dinner time. I will admit, I am not the most organized person, but I am really trying. I am stepping up my game this year because quite frankly, the stress is just getting old. Like me!

Enter Keystone All-Natural Beef! I normally try not to use too much “canned food”, but Keystone is premium USDA beef that is hand-packed into a convenient can to make your recipe easier. Their all-natural beef has only two ingredients: beef and sea salt. Perfect for quick meals like stew, stir-fry and more! I also was very pleased when I checked out the label. Since Ales is a Type 1 Diabetic, I looked for the carb count. ZERO! Many “processed” types of meat have carbs. *thumbs up* for Natural and carb free!

This meal couldn’t have been any easier. The rice is actually what made it take longer. You could use premade mashed potatoes instead and that would cut the time down to probably 10 minutes. You can really add anything that you want to this. I am not a huge vegetable fan, so I kept it minimal. Patrick did add some sliced black olives to his when it had finished cooking. read the rest of this entry »

I have been trying out A LOT of new recipes lately. I am going to share ones that I think are very simple and delicious with you! I made this one the other night and the boys, normally picky like their mother, LOVED IT! I consider it a score for me! I am a big chicken eater and this is definitely on my top 5 chicken recipes. If you try this one, please come back and tell me what you thought!

8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
8 slices Swiss Cheese
1 (10.5 oz) can Cream of Chicken Soup

1 cup dry, seasoned stuffing mix or croutons, crushed
4 tbsp Butter, melted

Directions:

Preheat oven 350 and Grease a 9×13 casserole dish.
1. Place chicken in prepared dish and cover with cheese. I just sliced the cheese in half and used an entire slice on each piece of chicken. I also only made 6 pieces since there is only 3 of us. Recipe was still fine.

PostHeaderIcon If only all dinners were quick and easy

FamilyFinest-Logo-HighRes (1)Something that the boys really love to do is, make their own pizza. I must admit, I really enjoy it myself. Just don’t tell them ok? They think I do it for them only. Because we all have such different likes, it makes pizza night cheaper and there is a lot less arguing. I am not a vegetable eater. The kids are so, I don’t want that stuff on my pizza.

If I don’t have the time to go out and buy, sort and plate all of the ingredients for them, I will pick up some of the ready to go pizza kits. Yesterday was one of those nights. Since they have karate at 4:30, dinner is often something quick and simple. Sometimes it’s pizza, sometimes its soup and sammies. There just isn’t enough time to get them from school, get home work done and eat dinner before they leave. They isually grab a snack after school and then we eat after karate. the usual 5:00 dinners are pushed to 6. read the rest of this entry »
