We all have those days – those days when you have way too much on your plate and you don’t know how you’ll get it all done. It’s days like this when the last thing on your mind is dinner.

Often times, I get so caught up in my work that I totally forget about dinner. Most days I really love my job, but sometimes things tend to get hectic. On those days when I have several articles to write, photos to shoot, parties to plan and soccer games to attend, I can get totally overwhelmed!

When my schedule is overbooked and I have no idea what to cook for dinner, I turn to my freezer. It is stocked with delicious meals that are ready in minutes.

That’s why I always have a backup plan! On those days when I don’t have time to cook, I keep my freezer stocked with Banquet Mega Bowls. Have you seen them? I find them in the frozen meals freezer section of my local Walmart.

My husband was pleasantly surprised the first time I served him a Banquet Chicken Fried Steak Mega Meal. He’s impressed that the portions are hearty and the Chicken Fried Steak tastes homemade. Plus, this mega bowl has 19 grams of protein!

Banquet Mega Bowls – It’s What’s For Dinner

The Chicken Fried Steak Mega Bowl is a favorite at my house. It’s filled with tender chunks of beef patty fritters and country style gravy on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes. Then it’s topped with corn, green beans, and melted cheese. It’s truly a mega bowl of deliciousness!
