January starts the calendar year off but for me September is a month of new beginnings. While my mommy friends refer to this week as “the most wonderful time of the year”, I am not sad that school has begun. My house really does need to be organized while the kids are at school. I do miss the beach house we vacationed at last week, the sunrises and the cocktails but it’s time to stop whining and move forward. With the new school year comes homework, sport practices, back to school nights, art lessons and not a lot of time to cook dinner. Recently, I was introduced to Sun-Bird seasonings and they came in handy this past week!
Since we transitioned from arriving home on Labor Day weekend to a soccer tournament to the first day of school, it didn’t leave much time to purchase groceries. My refrigerator was downright bare and that left me with a “what’s for dinner dilemma” on Tuesday, the first day of school. Since I always have chicken and frozen veggies in the freezer, the Sun-Bird seasonings made dinner a no brainer. Paired together with some brown rice, the General Tso’s Chicken I made was a complete meal. I followed the packet directions and added some extra frozen broccoli. Dinner was on the table so quickly, there was still time to hit the back to school night water ice party.
Sun-Bird seasonings are so easy to use and only require a few simple ingredients. Instead of making a boring chicken dinner , you can break your routine and get a taste of something more flavorful. Cooking this meal was as easy as ordering Chinese take out. I’d much rather stir a few things in a pan while listening to my favorite music than fight the rush hour traffic to pick up some take out. Sun-Bird offers a variety of different products to help you create the perfect meal and some are even gluten free!
