Family Dinner on the Go with Jimmy Dean

This article may contain affiliate links which support this site at no cost to you.

As a parent, I treasure family dinners. I do everything I can to make sure that our family sits down every single day to a family meal at least once. In my dream world, this picturesque family dinner would happen every single night. In reality, I’m pretty happy if I can pull off 4-5 nights. It seems like the older my kids get, the busier our life gets, which means that I have to fight hard for our family dinners.

Due to evening activities, we sometimes eat dinner at different times, which also means that we sometimes eat dinner in very odd places like a football field or even in the car. It’s not my favorite thing, but I make do. And while I prefer to feed my family a home cooked meal every night, it just doesn’t happen. Remember those easy Jimmy Dean® Delights I told you about for lunch? Well, Jimmy Dean® also has a new line of frozen dinners.

I love this sign in the frozen food aisle of Smith’s! I get so stressed out over cooking dinner for my family every single night that sometimes I need to remember to just chill out and go with the flow.

Jimmy Dean®’s new line of frozen dinners offers something for everyone. They have everything from a steak option for Dad to a mac and cheese or pasta option for the kids to turkey and chicken for me.

I tried out the Jimmy Dean® Delights Southwest Style Grilled Chicken for dinner one Tuesday evening, the busiest night of our week. My neighbor was over and she was super impressed that the meal is only 250 calories. I loved that it was full of protein. Connect with Jimmy Dean® on Facebook and Pinterest!

    We don’t really have ‘on the go’ dinners…if we’re out, we’ll get subs at Subway. Or if we have a busy evening planned, I’ll make something like soup or something ahead of time in the crockpot, that we can quickly eat then be on our way.

    I like to do food prep so I typically have something ready on the go. My go-to is ground turkey that I’ve browned. Just pop it on the stove, add some black beans put it on top of some broccoli slaw. It’s what’s for dinner tonight. 🙂
