Week Night Meals in Less Than 30 Minutes: Part II

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Marie Callender's. All opinions are 100% mine.



A while back I shared three of my favorite weeknight meals that could be made in less than 30 minutes.  And who would've known that they only thing bloggers love more than yummy meals, is ones that can be made in less than 30 minutes.  Quick + easy; that's how we like it.
 
So today I'm back with more meals than can be made quickly, and believe me ALL the taste is still there in these 30 minute meals.  
 

 


 O N E | | Broccoli Casserole.  Yes, I eat this as a meal (not just a side at Thanksgiving), and yes it is delicious.  

T W O | | A Healthy Version of the BLT.  I'm not sure why this is thought of as a lunch; it is equally tasty at dinnertime and a GREAT way to cut calories.  

T H R E E | | Taco Soup.  I am a soup lover, and you will be too when you try out this soup.  Perfect for these cold, winter months ahead.

F O U R | | Marie Callendar's Mac & Cheese.  The creaminess of this mac & cheese is seriously no joke.  If it was life sized, I'd totally jump in to take a swim -- using the noodles as well swimming noodles of course.  This meal is perfect to stay warm and cozy this winter; and I literally ate the one pictured and went out and bought another one to eat two days later.  No shame.  It's that good y'all.  Not to mention takes less than thirty TEN minutes to make!  


This fall Marie Callender’s is launching their Comforts from Home Project by bringing the comforts of home to those who protect America's homes every day: the brave men and women of the U.S. military.  


Friday, I mentioned how near and dear it is to my heart to support these men and women year round.  After my cousin was deployed (for the second time), it hit me how not only do they sacrifice to protect our country and freedom, but their families do too.  The year my cousin was overseas during the holidays we missed him like crazy, and you can imagine how he (and the other men and women) felt on Thanksgiving and Christmas as well.  


Needless to say when I discovered Marie Callendar's Comforts From Home Project I was jumping at the chance to participate and spread the word.  Because I know how badly those men and women long for a taste of home, especially around the holidays.
