I try hard to provide my family with nutritious and satisfying meals throughout the week, but sometimes mom needs a break or at least to cut a few corners. McCain potato products have become a staple in my weekly meal planning. Whether I’m making it a simple nuggets and fries night, to appease the kids, or need to spend a little less time prepping my husband favorite, roasted chicken and potatoes. I can always count on McCain Foods to be in my corner.
McCain foods is the world’s largest manufacturer of frozen potato products. At McCain Foods they know good food starts with wholesome, real ingredients and that is exactly what McCain potatoes are; wholesome and all natural, which means no artificial colors and no artificial flavors. They use the same simple, wholesome ingredients, you would use if you were cooking from scratch. I know many worry about the use of frozen over fresh, however, the freezing process essentially preserves nutrients and quality when food is frozen at its peak. It also reduces the growth of micro-organisms that cause spoilage and food-borne illness, and because you use only what you need when you need it; food lasts longer, creating less waste!
While there are plenty of McCain Potato varieties to satisfy all, I am absolutely over the moon about Smiles. I don’t know what it is about McCain Smiles, but they have been a long time favorite of mine, with a crispy outside and soft mashed potato inside they certainly make my mouth smile. And do I really need to say how my kids feel about a food shaped like a smiley face? Why, they love them of course.
Dinner is the one meal we always sit down to as a family. Whether, I’ve spent hours in the kitchen or am breaking out the paper plates and making it a heat and serve night, it’s important that we grab at least those 30 minutes or so to catch up.
With McCain potato products I can get from the kitchen to the family table quicker, leaving me more quality time with the family. Often dinner time is the most satisfying for me. I get to hear about my children’s school day in great detail, listen to their silly jokes and catch up with my husband all at the same time.
