Shake It Up for Super Bowl!
Feb 02, 2017
Here we go on blog #2! I have to say, writing my introduction blog was a little bit easier as it did not require producing an actual meal idea. This blog will very much be utilizing the baby step method. And what easier baby step to take than to come up with a meal that can double as a Super Bowl dish!
Sidenote: For those of you that are concerned that this blog is not going to be healthy, rest assured I will not be telling you to pick up a box of macaroni and Little Debbie desserts. Because of course that would be horrible dinner advice and I have never done that…
Let’s all be honest though, sometimes family dinners are not what we imagined. Here is a perfect example :
I think we can all relate to the Heck family. We do the best that we can. That is something that I want to remain true to in this blog – a real look at the struggle of family dinners, not the unobtainable Pinterest version of life.
What I will give you is a simple meal idea that you can choose to expand upon and it will also work for picky eaters. Some meals will be health focused while others will be family favorites. All meals will give you options to create something quickly with little prep involved and require only a quick stop at the grocery store.
Even if you are not a sports fan, chances are you will be involved in an event that involves food this coming weekend. The American Institute of Food Distribution says that Super Bowl Sunday is the second highest event in America for most food consumption, following Thanksgiving.
So let’s get ready to rumble! (wrong sport?)
Once you have all your ingredients together it take about 20 minutes to make this dish. Here is the recipe:
Here is an example of the ingredients once you have added everything to your container:
Post shake up your dish will look like this:
My pick for my picky eaters!
The great thing about this meal is that it has all of things most kids like and it gives them a chance to try them in a new way. Not to mention, this is easy to modify in a way that everyone can enjoy. This makes a pretty big batch – so you are also ready to go for a Super Bowl party. I would recommend offering a taco bar of sorts with the premade container so people can add on cut tomatoes, jalapeños, shredded cheese and Western dressing.
The Quick Taco Salad Shake Up is easy to transport to a gathering and doubles as a great party dish! I hope you enjoy this dish and have a great Super Bowl weekend, whether you are watching the game or Netflix, you have a dinner plan in place!
