(Time-challenged, they call it)
And since I am most definitely “time-challenged,” I was excited when they asked if they could send me a few items to try…. and by a few items, they meant all of THIS:
from top left: Halloween Pasta, Tortilla Soup, Pumpkin Cobbler, Three Cheese Risotto, Chicken and Dumplings, Creamy Roasted Garlic Sauce, Key Lime Cheesecake Bars, Marina Sauce Mix, Angel Hair pasta w/ extra virgin olive oil
Being the kind of woman I am, I made the cheesecake bars first. Readers: they were a KNOCK OUT HIT at my house. Chocolate cookie crumb crust, topped by an airy cheesecake layer with a hint of lime. Also: No. Baking. Required. They were gone in approximately 2.7 seconds.
The next item we decided to try was the creamy roasted garlic sauce with the angel hair pasta. Now, I am the first to admit that white sauces are my palate’s nemesis. They’re too thick, or too cheesy, or too blah. I decided that if Plentiful Pantry could make me eat a white sauce, I would be theirs for life.
And then I got mad at all the other white sauces I’ve tried over the years, because I’m reasonable like that. The sauce was light, with a delicate garlic flavor. One packet was PLENTY for my family of six, and it was so simple to make! I just added a little bit of butter and milk; quick, easy, and everyone loved it.
Bottom line: Plentiful Pantry makes delicious, family friendly meals that you can make in a snap.
Each item only requires one or two ingredients be added. (For the Tortilla Soup, I added water. That’s it.) And it’s so fast! So on those busy days when I completely forget about dinner until it’s dinner time? I am totally busting out with the Plentiful Pantry.
