Quick Lunches & a Giveaway from Kraft Mac & Cheese

Posted By Jessica Fisher On July 23, 2011 @ 11:06 am In Good Eats,Promotions | Comments Disabled


I love quick lunches. But, honestly since my kids often have different preferences than I do, I often spend more time making two different lunches, so quick isn’t usually part of the equation. But, recently, I did pull together a meal that pleased us all — and in short order.


I had a few loaves of French bread, softened butter, and some garlic. Within minutes we’ve got easy garlic bread [4] to pop into the toaster oven.

One head of lettuce, chopped and run through the salad spinner, gets dressed up with balsamic vinegar, dried cranberries, nuts or seeds, green onion, and some blue cheese crumbles. This fruit and cheese salad [5] is delicious and can easily be toned down for picky eaters.

Two boxes of mac and cheese comes together in less than ten minutes on the stove top. This is the new Veggie Mac and Cheese [6] from Kraft. While I usually make mac and cheese from scratch, my kids totally gobbled this down. It is made with cauliflower pasta, helping you boost your kids’ vegetable intake for the day.

The result?

A quick and easy lunch that my whole family will happily eat. You can win some Kraft Mac and Cheese Veggie Pasta [6], too.

This weekend three LifeasMOM readers will two boxes of each of the two flavors Mac and Cheese Veggie Pasta [6]. THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATS TO THE WINNERS: bkds79@, egholtrop@, chcsmommy@
