Inviting Mrs. Leepers To Dinner
As September rolls around, many of you are preparing your children to go to school, and I am preparing to go back to work. That’s right, my time as a SAHM is over (for now), and I am back to teaching children that aren’t mine. This means that my time has become even sparser, and so I am glad to have found Mrs. Leeper’s organic gluten-free pasta boxed dinner kits!
Some days when I get home from teaching, there isn’t much time for making dinner… even before having a child! Therefore, it was with great delight that I found Mrs. Leeper’s boxed dinner kits, which make great meals in minutes. Now I know that there are other boxed dinner kits to be found; however, I have a gluten sensitivity and so I shouldn’t eat wheat. Mrs. Leeper’s (they make a variety of organic gluten-free pasta) has six boxed pasta kits: Beef Stroganoff, Beef Lasagna, Cheeseburger Mac, Creamy Tuna, Chicken Alfredo, and Mac & Cheese.
Each kit contains yummy corn or rice pasta (that doesn’t get mushy like the other gluten-free pastas I’ve tried) as well as a sauce mix. Like the titles suggest, you add beef, chicken or tuna; however, you can substitute in any protein you like, or omit it completely. To make the meal complete, I usually add some fresh or frozen veggies, such as peas, asparagus, broccoli or corn, while the pasta is simmering.
And there you have it – delicious, complete meals in minutes, which means I get to spend more time with T-dog and less time in the kitchen! Mrs. Leeper’s line of pastas retail for around $5.99 CAD at most major grocery stores, and you can buy it online at Gluten Free Promise for $5.09 USD.
