We love freezer meals but typically shy away from the ones you buy in the freezer section at your local grocery store. Usually we double up on recipes and package leftovers in microwave safe single serving containers. These quick and easy freezer meals are great for those busy days, like Sundays when you’re watching football all day or Tuesdays when the kids have practice or Fridays when you just don’t want to cook, and they do double duty when a new recipe flops or someone doesn’t like the dinner choice for the night. I’ve noticed lots of new choices in the freezer section of our grocery store and wondered if these meals are worthy of our valuable freezer space for stocking on those weeks when we are low in freezer meals.
It’s no secret that our family loves ethnic foods from Mexican to Chinese and obviously Italian with our love of pizza and lasagna. Michael Angelo’s Italian Entrées offers great choices like lasagna, eggplant parmesan, and flatbread meals plus their natural line offers you healthier choices by using antibiotic-free chicken, wheat-free meals, non-GMO organic Kamut khorasan wheat pasta, and organically grown tomatoes. I looked through their list of entrées and snacks and was in awe at how many choices they offer and had a hard time narrowing it down to the ones I wanted to try.
But since it’s football season and we’re always on the lookout for great tasting, easy to prepare meals and snacks for those long game filled Sundays, I automatically skipped down to the club options; you know the jumbo packages available at your local big warehouse type store where the pepperoni mini calzones immediately jumped off the page and lodged in my brain space. These would be perfect for game days and would double as great late afternoon snacks for Little T when he swears he’ll die of hunger before dinner arrives on his plate. The flatbreads also look like perfect game day meal where you would cook multiple flatbread flavors, cut each one into smaller pieces before arranging on a plate and getting back to the game before half time is over.
Did you know that Michael Angelo’s® is even giving away an Italian vacation for two. Wouldn’t that be the perfect couple’s getaway?
