Ready. Chef. Go!

Wednesday’s are always busy in our home. I’m usually working and  running errands for the majority of the day, followed by recording my podcast, and the evening is typically occupied with Bible Study.

This makes my daily meal planning even more important!

I wrapped up today’s activity by prepping these Ready. Chef. Go! Microwave steaming bags for tomorrow’s dinner.

I LOVE steamed asparagus and I’ve found that microwaving asparagus provides the perfect amount of crisp for my desired tastes. 


Step 1: Trim the ends of the asparagus stems.


Step 2: Insert asparagus and your desired seasonings into the Ready! Chef! Go! Steam Envelope. I love lemon pepper asparagus, so I’ve added lemon slices and a savory seasoning blend.


Another close up.  This time with tabs of butter added.  Tomorrow, I’ll be microwaving these packets for 3 minutes each and serving them along with salmon filets.


Pictured above is a close up of the rear of the packet. For more info, check out the product website!

Meatless Monday: MorningStar Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles

I had two back to back meetings scheduled for this evening, so I knew I needed to plan ahead. I came home at 4:30pm and used these MorningStar Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles to make tacos for the Husboo. He loved them and EVEN had seconds. My final evaluation is always completed by asking if he would have that meal again. With NO hesitation he said, “YES!” Another #meatlessMonday win!

Product review: The crumbles are a new MorningStar product and I highly recommend them. They are preseasoned and the cook time was only 8 minutes. I had taco seasoning on standby just in case the flavors weren’t to my liking, but I didn’t add a thing.

I served the tacos using Old El Paso’s new Tortilla Bowls and added Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Blend and Wholly Guacamole’s spicy pico and guacamole dip. A quick, 30 minute meal.

I also purchased the Grillers Recipe Crumbles, so I’ll review those at some point in the future. Until then, “Go fix something!” 🙂
