Lawry's Holiday Meal Help

I had hoped to get a post up yesterday, but I'm sure just like many of you time was not my friend and it didn't happen.  I love this time of the year, but this week and next week are the two craziest for me.  I have something going on every day and every evening.  I've made sure that the week before Christmas we don't over pack our schedule so we can actually breath and enjoy things.  DH has been such a good sport since I'm outta here and he has the kids while I'm attending different things.

With all of this craziness going on, the thought of what to make for dinner has been something that I haven't wanted to deal with.  The folks at MyBlogSpark and Lawry's sent me a wonderful pack of goodies a few weeks ago to try and I've just had a chance this week to dig in. 

I have to admit I was excited about this package for a few reasons. I knew that our schedule was going to be busy and having some new dinner recipe choices were just what I needed.  And the fact that I didn't have to plan everything out made it so easy.  They sent me four of their new seasoning packets to try.  The new flavors are Asian Beef and Broccoli, Chimichurri Burrito Casserole, Mediterranean Sun dried Tomato and Garlic Chicken, and Tuscan Style Chicken Marsala with Garlic and Basil.  This week we tried the Asian Style Beef and Broccoli and the Chimichurri Burrito Casserole.  My husband and I really liked the Chimichurri Burrito Casserole.  As soon as he walked in the door from work he said, "Something smells good".  I was wondering if it would be too spicy, but it wasn't at all. It had great flavor and the packet said it feeds eight, so we had left overs which is a nice plus. 

I have to admit I was not a fan of the Asian Style Beef and Broccoli. I made that one last night. I actually found that one to be spicier than I liked.  If you are someone who likes spicy foods you might want to give it a try. I'm a big baby when it comes to spicy food. 

I can't wait to try the two chicken dishes since we like chicken dishes.  With the cold weather, I'm thinking some hot bread will be a perfect choice to go with these recipes.

So with all the busy shopping, wrapping, and all the other things going on in your life, check out the new seasoning packets from Lawry's. When you look on the packet, it will tell you the ingredients you'll need to make the dish. I love that because it is like having a quick grocery list right there with you so you don't forget anything. I'd look for them in the seasoning aisle.

I love it that you guys are going to have the chance to win one of these prize packs. Guys, this prize pack is awesome.  The marinating tray was a ginormous pyrex dish which is going to come in handy, along with the four Lawry's Seasoning Packets.   You have 4 opportunities to enter.
