I know, I know. In your head I’m an uber glam mom making a four course dinner for my loved ones in a pair of Louboutins. Ummm….reality check. I’m really a mom who works full time, comes in the back door at 6:00, and then trips over myriad backpacks, tennis shoes and fairy wands while making her way to the cabinet for a box of instant Mac ‘n Cheese. And confession – the dress code at work is casual, so on a good day I’m in ballet flats, on a bad day I’m in flip-flops. (I just happen to really like the pretty pictures of the Louboutins!)
For those of us who are in need of a quick dinner for the kiddos that’s a little more than Mac ‘n Cheese but a little less than filet mignon, try this on for size: dice up some cooked chicken breasts (easy to prepare ahead of time, freeze and thaw), and mix the chicken with milk, butter and chive flavored cream cheese to taste. Spoon the mixture into the middle of Pillsbury Crescent Roll dough, and then wrap the dough around the mixture to make individual “bundles.” Bake according to the directions on the Crescent Roll package and voila! Dinner in no time flat! (Get it? Flats?)
Enjoy, fellow moms! And remember: regardless of our actual footwear, we’re all well heeled in our hearts.
