Quick Dinner Ideas
As a mother of 2 active girls, I am always in search of quick dinner ideas to feed my family. My husband typically does all the cooking (homemade from scratch) and I on the other hand tend to sway towards more convenient semi-prepared foods. With that said, I like to find new products that I can throw in the freezer for those tag your it have to make dinner days. Both of my girls are picky eaters and seem to survive on the same menu from week to week. Even though we introduce new foods they tend to gravitate towards the same thing every time, I guess their taste buds will mature with age! When I was given the opportunity to review McCain’s All Natural Seasoned Crinkle Cut Fries I was excited, french fries are one of their favorite foods.
Foods Toddlers Love
Any parent of toddlers knows that one of the foods toddlers love are french fries. Typically, I serve plain fries but I decided to go out on a limb and try the seasoned crinkle cut fries. I was pleasantly surprised to see that both the girls gobbled them up with no complaints. My oldest said “mommy these fries are spicy, I like them”…she is funny because any food that has any flavor she thinks is spicy, so they are not mine and your version of spicy. The seasoning was very nice and had a wonderful mild flavor. I really enjoy the crinkle cut fries because they are thicker and you don’t have to eat as many to fill up!
I baked them in the oven at 425 degrees for 22 minutes. They came out great with a nice crunch with each bite. Several times a week I find myself rushing around trying to find something to feed the kids. I love how convenient McCain All Natural fries were to prepare. McCain’s All Natural line is as close to homemade as you can get, they are real potatoes from the ground to your table. No fillers, no artificial flavors or colors. Although I am not much of a cook myself, I do like to make sure the kids are eating natural foods and I am happy to report I have found my new go to fries! There are so many varieties of meals you can have with fries: hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, sloppy joes, cheese fries (my personal favorite) or you can just have them for a nice little snack!
McCain also carries sweet potato fries, smile fries, steak fries and classic cut fries. They are all wonderful All Natural options to feed your family that offer the convenience of quick preparation. Check them out on Facebook for more product information!
