This post brought to you by Michelina’s. All opinions are 100% mine.
I’m currently on the hunt for lunch ideas that come together very fast so that I don’t have to spend 30-45 minutes of my work day preparing food. But I don’t want to eat peanut butter & jelly all the time, nor do I want to eat frozen entrees. There are a lot of good frozen options out there, but I know I would get bored.
Michelina’s actually has a solution for those of us who want great taste, something that feels and tastes homemade, AND something lightning fast. The company, along with several bloggers, have created recipes that use Michelina’s entrees and take them to a whole new level, all with just a few moments extra of prep time. It is called Make It Your Michelina’s. That sounds like the best of both worlds to me!
I’ve looked over all the yummy possibilities, and I selected my top 8 ideas to share with you. Since I need to be especially quick in the kitchen 2 days each week (when my youngest is away and I can REALLY work), 8 recipes would take care of a month of working lunch ideas for me!
