(Disclosure: I’ve partnered with Simek’s Meatballs for this sponsored post to let you know about their great partnership with Feed My Starving Children. Child hunger across the world is such an important issue and I’m proud to support their efforts to provide children the nourishment they need.)
It’s December – that time of year when things get hectic with concerts, parties and shopping…everyone’s going in a different direction, it seems, between practices, rehearsals and special get-togethers.
Despite the long to-do lists, my family and I enjoy the lights, music and all the activity of the holiday season (as long as I can sit and enjoy some of it for a while!). But while trying to keep up with all of it, I struggle to find enough time to prepare tasty meals that are healthful and nutritious, and satisfy those comfort food cravings on cold nights.
I LOVE to cook – and love filling up our kitchen with healthful options that are versatile and ready-to-go when I am, like Simek’s Meatballs. Because I rarely have more than, say, 30 minutes to get something together and served for my family, these work great to put something together from the standard Spaghetti and Meatballs, to the many super easy and quick recipes you can find on the Simek’s website including:
I highly recommend browsing through their many family favorite recipes that look like they take a lot of time to prepare in the kitchen, but are actually very quick and easy! You can even filter your search by occasion, product and prep time (psst…only one takes more than 30 minutes! Yay!).
I also love that Simek’s Meatballs have no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives (there are enough of those out there!).
This time of year also is a good reminder of the many things we have to be grateful for, and that sadly, many people across the globe don’t know where their next meal will come from. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Our family and church has long supported the organization Feed My Starving Children, and I’m so glad that Simek’s is teaming up with them to help provide meals to starving children overseas.
Now through December 31, 2015, for every Simek’s product purchased a Feed My Starving Children meal will be donated. You can help Simek’s donate up to 50,000 meals to Feed My Starving Children. So while you’re warming up dinner for your own family, you are also warming up a child’s heart.
