In between having my foot run over by one of these,
threatening Natalie to get her to get off of her sister, strapping a wailing Michaela Byrd in and out of the "car," repeatedly announcing that I did not have any snacks, and putting candy bars lifted by sticky-fingered toddlers back on the display, I was at my wits' end!
I pushed my Healthy Meals goal to the back of my mind and just started chucking Weight Watchers meals and Lean Cuisines into the cart in an effort to exit the premises before they put our faces on a Wanted poster.
Since T was working late, I fed the girls a quick meal (they ate better than I did!) and I pulled this out of the freezer.
5 grams of fat in a whole meal? I could dig that!
Until I looked at the ingredient list on the side of the packaging! That thing is longer than the tax code and the stimulus bill put together! Ingredients like Ferric Orthophosphate and Thiamine Mononitrate don't sound so appetizing. But I cooked it anyways because a girl's gotta eat.
If you like crunchy rice and enchilada sauce that tastes specifically like the hollandaise they serve on the chicken and shrimp, then this meal is for you.
1 can cream of chicken soup (here is a great, HEALTHY & QUICK recipe for a cream of chicken soup substitute!)
