“Load up on groceries your family loves, and bring naturally good moments to the dinner table every time you serve McCain Potatoes."
I am a meat and potatoes kind of girl. Always have been, always will be. :-) And, even though I have been working all year on losing the excess baby weight I gained during my 2010 and 2011 pregnancies, I still can't say "no" to mashed potatoes or fries. Eeek, just typing the word "french fries," I know it is not a good food for someone looking to slim down their waistline. Or, is it? I always say, as I heard this repeatedly over the years by my mother and grandmother, that you can enjoy foods "in moderation." :-) So, when I am preparing the weekly menu for my family, I can't help but add a potato side dish to a handful of the meals.
Being a busy mom to two toddlers, there are times that I can't be in the kitchen peeling and cutting potatoes, and then watching as they boil on the stove. But, that doesn't mean we still can't enjoy potatoes with our meal. Thanks to McCain Foods, they offer a line of McCain Potatoes that make preparing potato side dishes a breeze. :-) Oh, and did I mention that their potatoes are made from natural ingredients and taste great. Even my picky eater, Savannah, loves the McCain Smiles fries. When I asked her the other day what she wanted for lunch, she surprised me, as I usually have to cook up an assortment just to get her to eat one thing. She told me she wanted chicken nuggets with a side of McCain Smiles french fries. I guess she is my daughter -- as, she, too, loves potatoes in all forms, with her meals. :-) And, before I could pull the bag from the freezer, she had already done so, and was posing for photos.
Like I have said in the past, Savannah loves to help out in the kitchen, especially when it comes to preparing meals. And, whenever I am using McCain potatoes as a side dish, she is there to help me mash the potatoes or line the smiley face french fries on the cookie sheet. Whenever I serve up McCain Smiles french fries, I don't have to worry about leftovers, as there are never any.
If you are a busy mom, who dreads putting together a weekly meal plan, or struggles to find healthy side dishes to add to your meals, that will not take too long to prepare and cook up, why not consider checking out all the different McCain potatoes available?
From Sweet Potato fries to Whole Baby Skin-On Potatoes or Russet Potato Slices, you are bound to find a potato side dish that will appeal to your family, and compliment your meal. Take it from a meat and potatoes girl -- "Everything takes better with a side of potatoes." :-)
