Van de Kamp’s Seafood and Veggie Meals for Fish on Friday are a perfect intro to my new series!
I love these new Van de Kamp’s Seafood and Veggie Meals for Fish on Friday. I’ve mentioned before that I’m trying to slowly ease my family off of expecting a meat dish every night for dinner, and incorporate more vegetables, grains, legumes and fish instead. To do this I’ve been posting a Meatless Monday Series of recipes that has been a fun challenge for me~I’ve really enjoyed preparing dinners for my family with more fruits, veggies and greens. It makes me feel like I’m being a good mom.
Now it’s time to move on to phase two; Fish on Friday recipes!
To kick off my new Fish on Friday series, I’m featuring one of Van de Kamp’s Seafood and Veggie Meals from Walmart – Lemon Herb Shrimp with Barley, Spinach, Sweet Potatoes & Chickpeas. I know most of you probably think I cook a dinner from scratch for my family every night. Hah! I’ve got you fooled. That is totally unrealistic for me, and I think for most families. I always have at least a few frozen dinners in my freezer for nights that are just way to crazy, or I’m too worn out, to cook a meal. While I went with the Lemon Herb Shrimp this time around they also have some other great varieties like California Salmon with Peas, Yellow Carrots and Sun Dried Tomatoes, Baja Style Cod with Whole Grains, Black Beans and Red Peppers, and Garlic Herb Shrimp with Quinoa, Spinach and Cranberries!
