As Mom’s we worry when we have to be away. My husband travels a lot for work and I stay home so the boys are with me more than Dad. I clean and cook most dinners. My husband gets home just in time for dinner and the house is tidy and we get to enjoy our night. On the weekends my husband does yard work or car maintenance and cooks some meals. It is pretty routine around here. However, a few weeks ago I left for a few days for a conference in Chicago and the day I was leaving I would watch my husband and youngest pace and talk about what they are to do with me away-like they were fish out of water about to suffocate! Mom will be gone-what do we do? What do we eat?

My husband ate out with my son several times when I was gone. Apparently one of the nights they ate out was because my husband lost a bet with the 7 year old on how much mail would be delivered that day and the winner was to choose dinner and so my son won and chose fast food. Seriously! That’s no lie! It cost money to have my husband fend with the boys while I was away because eating out is not cheap. I want them to eat protein-rich, satisfying meals at home like STOUFFER’S Fit Kitchen Entrees.

The strange part about Dad being left home without Mom is that on any other day, Dad will cook and whip up meals but with Mom gone they suddenly turn into an instant bachelor mentality and forget they know how to cook. I don’t get it, so the next time I leave I will make sure to leave easy meals that my husband can cook up so they eat properly instead of spending money going out. We travel quite a bit so I try not to spend money out unless we really have to. Not to mention, we eat healthier at home then when we eat out. 

STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen meals are the perfect meal to leave with Dad when you have to be away. You know you will head to Walmart anyhow to get some last minute travel or night out items, so while you are there you can pick up great varieties of STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen meals. Choose from Steak Fajitas, Cilantro Lime Chicken, Monterey Chicken, Oven Roasted Chicken and Bourbon Steak! Flavors Dad and the kids will love. They also come with all the sides needed to make it a complete meal from rice to beans and vegetables. My husband loves to heat up tortillas in the microwave and use them with these meals to make wraps and quesadillas. They also get 25-27 grams of protein with these varieties. 

So, it’s OK to leave, Mom! Really, it is and if you leave Dad with these STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen meals, the kids will eat a hearty meal and that is one less worry you will have while away from home!

Do you have to leave home at times? Will you make sure you leave STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen meals on hand?
