In the Windlasse world, our days can go from rain to rainbow in a split second. Shifty winds are part of life, and any good sailor knows to head in the direction of the best breeze. This page is dedicated to sharing fresh ideas for having a great day!
Have a Pantry Party
A few years ago, I worked at a food manufacturing company and got to witness first-hand the hours of labor that goes in to recipe research, development and marketing. From that experience, I can tell you that any real estate on a food label is prime-time material, and you can bet that teams of people have studied, tasted and re-tasted the recipes that you see on every package in your pantry. Their company wants you to love their product and find new ways to use it. Instead of gambling on that picture-perfect recipe you found on Pinterest this month, January’s Daychanger is to have a Pantry Party and try out the brilliant food lineup waiting for you on your shelves!
I browsed our available options today, and now my eye is on having my family taste-test these promising recipes from the back of the box:
Greek Green Bean and Tomato Salad (Morton’s Kosher Salt Box)
French Onion Barbeque Burgers (Progresso Plain Bread Crumbs Canister)
Spinach & Herb Lasagna Roll-Ups (Kroger Lasagna Box)
With all the New Year’s resolutions we have to step up to, it’s nice to push the “Easy button” sometimes and depend on recipes that we know are tried and true. Plus, it’s a good way to use up the ingredients purchased for other dishes and reduce waste. In 2017, that should probably be on everyone’s to-do list!
Hope you can find something delicious in your own pantry this month, and below are the links to last year’s Daychangers to keep the fun going.
