We’ve been in the middle of a snow/ice storm down here in Georgia. It’s been pure madness. So, being able to make an easy and quick meal in the event we lost power was tremendously helpful. The timing of reviewing Mueller’s Pot-Sized Spaghetti couldn’t have been better!
When you have your local weather man tweeting such things, the entire family needs comfort food. In this case, maybe the adults more than the kids. I appreciated being able to drop these noodles in the pot without having to worry about breaking and making sure they all fit. This came in handy so I didn’t miss too much news screen time running between the living room and the kitchen. You know, in the event the ice storm forecasting had to break away to show the incoming swarm of locusts. Any other day, I would appreciate this shortcut just as much because it’s one less thing to fuss over.
All in all, I love it and I think the next time you’re at the store, you should pick up your favorite variety of Mueller’s Pot-Sized noodles for your next ice storm or pasta night!
Speaking of kitchen shortcuts, I wanted to share with you my favorite “go-to” kitchen shortcut. I looooove to find chicken on sale. In this case, I was able to find some leg quarters for about $0.95 a pound. I cook them up, remove the bones, throw them in my Kitchenaid mixer, attach the paddle attachment, and have it go to town. It does such an awesome job shredding up the chicken!
Once the chicken is shredded, I use sandwich size or quart size freezer bags and divide out the chicken based on how much I need for certain meals. Chicken and rice? Enchiladas? I sort them out, write on the bag what it should be used for, and throw it in the freezer. So, whenever it’s time for dinner, the chicken is already cooked. It just needs to be defrosted (hopefully you threw it in the fridge to defrost all day) and thrown in the meal. And that my friends, is a significant shortcut when you’re cooking after work!
