Easy Dinner Solutions with Jimmy Dean Frozen Entrees (& $50GC Giveaway!) #ShineAnytime

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Jimmy Dean®.

My husband’s job is at it again – derailing our normal family schedule. The other night, he endured his first “staff duty” here. Staff duty is a 24-hour shift where he and another soldier help to watch over the barracks, which means spending the night at the office. Blerg.

Since he spent the night at the office, he didn’t get to enjoy dinner at home with us. Since daddy wasn’t going to be home, I’d figured we’d just do a “whatever-I-don’t-feel-like-cooking” meal where I’d partake in a salad and bake the kids some chicken nuggets and french fries (easy-peasy). My husband wasn’t too eager to eat chicken nuggets OR my “whatever” salad, and since our leftovers were scarce again, he opened up the freezer for one of these Jimmy Dean® frozen entrees.

Jimmy Dean Delights EntreesHe’s really enjoyed eating the Delights for lunch, and decided to try a different one for dinner.

Jimmy Dean dinners in the freezerHe noticed these new Jimmy Dean dinners in the freezer section at Walmart that are slightly different than the Delights. He couldn’t resist trying this Grilled Steak on a hoagie, and raved at how easy it was to prepare.

Jimmy Dean grilled steak dinnerThere are sixteen different varieties of meals that Jimmy Dean now offers that are beyond breakfast, that include sandwiches (like BBQ Beef and Smoked Sausage), bowls (like Smoked Bacon and Pulled Pork) and varieties of both sandwiches and bowls in their Delights, which are less than 300 calories (like Smoked Turkey and Bacon sandwich, or Hickory Smoked Ham Bowl).

Grain-Free Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes #FitMaple

Grain-Free Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC. I eat oatmeal daily, sometimes paired with over-easy eggs (which I also eat daily). It might seem boring to eat the same thing every day, but when you're a busy work-at-home-mom to eleventy-billion kids as I am, routine is key to staying on task and getting everything done. Plus, why not? Eggs and oatmeal are not just healthy, but TASTY! But, when you're trying to make your own oatmeal … Keep Reading

My Favorite Breakfast Wrap Recipe using Over Easy or Sunny Side Up Eggs

Breakfast Egg Wrap with Over-Easy Eggs or Sunny Side Up Eggs

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms ambassador.) One morning, I found myself wandering down the streets in NC half-starving. I can't recall where I was going so early in the morning, but it was shortly after I had dropped the kids to school, and it wasn't until I passed a Sonic restaurant that I noticed my stomach grumbled. I specifically remember it stuck out in my mind that they'd just started serving their fancy coffee drinks, and while I … Keep Reading

I Finally Have Eyes in the Back of My Head (and In The Other Room)

Levana Stella 2 Camera Video Monitor Set

As a parent, don't you wish you had eyes in the back of your head? I need them in this house, especially since it's just me and the baby at home during the day. In our old house, we had a large great room and it was easy to keep tabs on her, even behind the half wall in the kitchen. But in this house, our great room isn't nearly as big or open, and the cut-out half-wall over the kitchen counter area is high, making it hard to see her in the … Keep Reading

Celebrate Mini Milestones with Netflix #StreamTeam


I’m a compensated member of the Netflix Stream Team. My seven-year-old had her first sleepover about a month ago. Of course, I was nervous nelly - how could she spend a night away from me? From us? But c'mon - girls and costumes and giggling and fingernail painting, it's just too big to fight. Plus, it was with one of my best friend's, her daughter asked and we accepted. It couldn't have been more perfect. Even at seven, almost eight, we're … Keep Reading
