Quick and Simple Dinners That Taste Great
I am of the belief that Sunday should be a day of rest. Our family goes to church and when we get home we all get in our comfy clothes. Even though it is Sunday, I still have to make dinner at the end of the day. Dreading working on a long process to make a dinner on my rest day, I decided that Sundays would be our easy dinner nights. There are some great products out there that taste delicious and make dinner a quick fix process while still having a good meal.

Slow Cooker Meals:
I love using the slow cooker, you just put something in and it does the rest. I highly recommend that every family have one because they make preparing a meal so simple. I also love how the food aroma fills the house while the food is cooking.

Slow Cooker Recipes
I have been impressed with some boxed dinners they have on the market now. If you have the meat then you can get a number of box kit meals and put together a great dinner. Here are some of our favorites...
Hamburger Helper - Honey Mustard Chicken
My family absolutely loves this dinner! The first time I tried it I thought it was restaurant quality it was so good. I have adjusted the amount of glaze, as we prefer about half the amount that is included, but this is usually a meal we have at least two times a month.
Wanchai Ferry - Spicy Garlic Chicken
This is an oriental meal with a kick! I love the taste of this sauce and have not been able to find anything quite like it. It allows you a new experience from the every day meals and to add fun try eating with chop sticks that night.
Romano's Macaroni Grill - Chicken Alfredo
Who doesn't love Italian food? With this box dinner kit you actually get to bring the restaurant to your home. Chicken alfredo is the favored pasta dish in our home and is usually devoured within minutes.
Wanchai Ferry actually makes premade frozen dinners in various varieties as well. If you visit their site, www.wanchaiferry.com, you can take a quiz to find out which dinner is a match for you and also get coupons. One of our favorites that they only have in the frozen dinners is the Shrimp Lo Mein.
If you'd rather, you can even freeze your own dinners, which also makes an easy dinner solution.
