By the time dinner rolls around my brain is mush from working and my dinner creativity is non-existant if there ever was creativity in the kitchen – haha! I have girlfriends who encourage me by sending me photos of their easy meals and tell me what they did and it helps, those go-to frozen sides that encourages me – not everything has to be made from scratch to be delicious and healthy.
Alexia created premium side dishes – non-GMO, gluten-free and is made of organic dairy ingredients. The great news is it doesn’t require any prep work and and you an cook it out of the bag in less than 10 minutes, ready to eat. They are great starch replacement side dishes if you are trying to watch calories.
Anything that takes under 10 minutes wins in my life. Sometimes I like to handle the main protein – salmon, chicken even picking a rotisserie chicken that’s perfectly cooked from the grocery. Having complete side dishes makes the meal look a lot more full. I also love that Alexia can handle the premium vegetables – it’s just one less thing I have to think about.
I’ve learned that having frozen salmon filets, to grilling steak is just fine enough for either Benjamin and I to handle and the rest is, microwave this and we are ready to catch up together on our day over food.
Oh my looking at these photos just make my mouth water – I need them again and I must head to the freezer now! The Mashed Butternut Squash with Butter, Brown Sugar – ok hello complete side dishes (looking at you Thanksgiving). It’s sweet, and if squash couldn’t get any better, mouth watering.
Cauliflower Risotto with Parmesan and Sea Salt is delicious! This is a riced cauliflower with a delicious hint of sea salt and rich cream – just microwave it in a bowl and you’re set.
Alexia side dishes would also take another thing off your plate if you were asked to bring a dish to a pot luck or host a big gathering – like Thanksgiving is around the corner! You can have plenty of options without stressing yourself out over making every single side dish.
I used to go through a drive-thru and bring fries (I know!) but I think this would be much more appreciated by a hostess that’s trying to offer guests a real meal. It’s also going to be much appreciated at home. I’m trying to learn how to make prime rib this fall to offer to my upcoming Christmas party – I am thinking Thanksgiving might be my trial run along with these side dishes.
