Hormel Foods - Saving my Sanity! #HormelFamily

Sunday, December 21, 2014

With our family all spread around in different places, everyone's schedule dictating something different and not allowing us to be together when we want and/or need to be - 
I find myself stressing even more about making just the right thing so that the holiday is not just another day.

But it's just the four of us, and I want to relax!
I want to go all out, without going all out!
Who wants to spend the whole day in the kitchen cooking...
For just our family of four!?!

Enter in...

Did you know, Hormel Foods offers Side Dishes?

We always joke about waiting on the potatoes around here, whenever a meal is almost ready...
We're always waitin' on the potatoes!

Well, wait no more!

While not something I normally take the easy way out with - 
this was so nice to have, to be able to whip together a whole meal quickly and easily, this time!

What were we serving our potatoes with?
Our FAVORITE...fool proof...

Oven Ready Turkey Breast!

Many Many Moons ago, we attempted the whole domestic process of buying a turkey and trying to prepare it just so...it didn't take too long of THAT nonsense, before we realized that there was something so amazing, so delish...so didn't involve storing a fresh turkey in the fridge or thawing out a big ol turkey and trying to get the giblets and whatever else shouldn't be inside

that there really was no need to ever go back!

From the freezer...right to your oven?

While you can get a whole turkey...we prefer to get only the the bird that will get eaten in our house...

And because we like leftovers, and because our seven year old eats like a seventeen year old...
We got two for this year's Turkey Day dinner!

Turns out I didn't have two regular sized cake pans - 
but they still cooked up these little beauties just right!

And remember how I said I needed to keep things easy and simple?
Well, the amazing freezer to oven turkey breast even comes with a gravy packet!

Do you hear those angels singing?

Add water, heat on the stove top, and viola!

The turkey cooks up better than we could hope for - 
Moist and tender - 

And none of it goes to waste - 
There's no skin, no fat, no dark meat...
All stuff that gets overlooked in this house...

We put enough stress on ourselves trying to get it all done during the busy season of the holidays - 
Why not let Hormel Foods help you out and take some of the burden out of the meal planning?
We do, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
