Do you ever just want to come home from work or a long day out and just kick your feet up and relax and spend time with your family? I do! The last thing I want to do after a day of momming is sit in the kitchen, cook dinner then clean up a huge mess.
I love making easy side dishes and then, of course, tasty entrées. Thanks to On-Cor I can have a family-friendly entrée in less than an hour! Plus, there’s NO MSG! 🙂
Growing up my favorite On-Cor entrée was the Gravy & 6 Salisbury Steaks, hands down. I love the flavors and of course the gravy. We always had to serve it with mashed potatoes! Now that I’m grown up I like to serve it the same way, but also with a refreshing and lightened up side dish. Not to mention easy.. easy peasy side dish that is!
My daughter loves cucumbers and thankfully my husband too. I grew up eating cucumbers like it was an apple so we always have tons of them in the house.
I just put the On-Cor entrée into the oven and then start making the side dish and mashed potatoes. I like to let the cucumber onion salad sit a bit before serving so while the main course cooks in the oven we let it marinate in the fridge.
For the mashed potatoes I make cream cheese mashed potatoes. They’re rich and creamy and I don’t even have to add any seasoning, they’re super delicious with milk, butter and cream cheese.
While the water boils and the Salisbury Steak cooks we like to do a little craft together. Family time is so important and we even have a rule that we do not use phones in our house when we’re together and especially not during meal times. We set a timer so we know when dinner will be ready. 🙂
On-Cor has been around for 70 years and it’s a brand name that many know and love! In fact, when we were shopping to pick some up at ShopRite (on sale!) a few people were picking out their favorite On-Cor entrées too! On-Cor’s mission is to offer quality, multi-serve entrées that everyone loves. They recently enhanced their products for moms just like me, looking for convenient, quality dinner solutions for our families, fully-cooked entrées conveniently packaged and ready to heat and serve.
For your next family meal, head to the freezer aisle of ShopRite or check out the store locator at www.on-cor.com to pick up one of On-Cor’s entrées, many even have 20-25% more meat!
