Are you knee deep in the holiday hoopla?
Things here have been downright nuts!
Trying to have a family get together is damn near impossible anymore. We have kids here in town, one in Seattle, and Mini-Me lives in Oregon now. So choreographing everyone in one place?
Ya, have fun with that!
Now, I love the holidays as much, if not more, than the next guy. I love the lights, the sounds, the smells, everything. But planning multiple celebrations, with all of the trappings, can begin to dull that holiday sparkle.
Being a food blogger, you know everyone expects well….they expect fabulous food and I love to supply that as much as I can. But sometimes I just need a little assistance. A shortcut, a hack, whatever you want to call it, Momma needs some help ASAP!
So, when I need that little helping hand, I turn to the frozen food aisle. I love the fact that I can find different kinds of cuisine right at my fingertips without the hard work.
My family’s favorite lasagna comes from the frozen food aisle, many of our Mexican faves are there too. I love the fact that you can find just about any cuisine you can think of at any time or on any day.
One of our all-time favorite cuisines is Asian and we all know that some of our favorite restaurant dishes can be just a tad labor intensive if you try to make them at home. Then I found InnovAsian and all of the yummy products they have to offer! Everything from Sweet and Sour Chicken (Kevin’s fave) to Beef and Broccoli, Shrimp Fried Rice, and (my favorite) this General Tso’s Chicken. I big ol’ puffy heart it and order it every time we go out.
Now, I have quite a few appetizer recipes here on the blog. Some are easy, others are kinda fancy dancy and a few are a tad bit spendy. I decided that for this season of entertaining, I wanted tasty but simple. I wanted to be able to hang out and enjoy the kids and NOT stress out over the food.
Ask my kids about Mom stressing out. I drive them crazy. Mom, everything doesn’t have to be perfect!
Haha, that statement just did not compute!
We busted out board games, had Christmas music playing, enjoyed some eggnog, and some deeelish nibbles. These General Tso’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps being the hands-down winner of favorite new appetizer.
Nobody had a clue that they were not made from scratch!
I will take that as a HUGE holiday win!
Great food with no stress? Merry Christmas to me 😄
