Quick Meal Sides – Suggestions for Busy Moms

**This post may contain Affiliate links, please see my disclosure for more information**

I know how it is, trust me! You work, come home, prepare a meal for your family, eat said meal, clean it up and go to bed. Most often, there's very little time in between any of the above for much beyond what I've already said. When you're a Mom, there's very little time for yourself. If any!

Have you ever wondered if there was a way to make quick and easy meals or even side dishes for your family? Sure, there's plenty of ways to do that. But the kicker is being able to keep it somewhat healthy, tasty and stay away from processed foods. Our kids get plenty of “junk” throughout the day, if there's one meal we like to try to keep well-balanced and healthy, it's dinner! Well, there are many ways we can do that and I'm going to share one of my most favorite side dishes that can go with so many main courses! The best part, my kids love it!

I recently discovered “The Little Potato Company”

Pre-packaged, fresh potatoes that come with a seasoning packet. Preparation is so simple, when you take your first bite you'll think to yourself “did I really make this so easily?”

If you've read any of my prior “food” related posts, you'll know I have four very picky eaters to stay creative on the food aspect of life with. You'll also know that if I'm sharing it with you, it's already been picky eater tested and approved! Two of my kids won't even touch potato-anything! But they gobble up these tasty little potatoes like it's nobodies business!

Needless to say, whenever I see that my local grocer has the “Little Potato Company” display in the produce department, I always grab a couple. It's hands down one of the easiest side dishes, it'll accent any dish! So easy, I'll tell you how to prepare it too. (You can them online too, keep reading I'll share the link in a few minutes…)

  • Simply microwave for 5-minutes (after removing the seasoning packet from the top
  • When done, remove the cover and add either a little butter or oil
  • Add the seasoning and stir
  • VOILA! Another masterpiece your family will love!
  • I like to cut the potatoes in half, just a personal preference that I think adds to flavor

Potatoes can easily go with any main course. I recently posted a recipe for my “Potato Chip Chicken” (You can check it out here: Potato Chip Chicken Recipe) we had Little Potato Company potatoes with it, it was perfect, easy, fulfilling AND I still had time to do a few other things besides the usual, boring and sometimes mundane routine we can be stuck in. Making things easy and simple, even saving time on meal preparations, can allow us to do other rewarding things with our family (or even for ourselves).

If you haven't seen these simple to prepare and tasty little potatoes at your local grocer's yet, I found them online. You can buy then right from Amazon, here's a link: http://amzn.to/2vsmySb

I know I've fallen in love with these perfect, tasty and simple to prepare potatoes that my picky family just can't get enough of!
