Dinner around the table is a must in our family. Catching up on everyone’s days and the highlights and sometimes low-lights is essential. We always, always make sure to eat at the table for each meal when possible. One of the dinners that is always, ALWAYS a hit with our family is our Burrito Bowl Meals or Taco Tuesday!
As a food allergy family it is imperative for us to read ALL of the labels of EVERYTHING that we bring into the house. This has made trips to the store harder and longer, but that’s our reality. We tend to eat as fresh as we can and with little to no additives if possible seeing as that is where most of the cross-contamination can occur for our (life threatening) allergies.
When Del Real Foods asked if I wanted to share about some of their food I jumped at the chance to showcase a brand that we LOVE and that is SAFE for our family. We bulk buy the Gluten-Free Chicken and Gluten-Free Beef from Costco. Hello deliciousness. I try to make all of our meals from scratch but goodness does life get busy! After a day out and about with the toddler and preschooler I hardly want to make another meal…
For the last two years Del Real Foods has helped keep our Burrito Bowls full and Taco Tuesday easy. I LOVE when I can count on my kids eating the food I put in front of them. Nothing makes me crankier than wasting a plateful of food that a picky kid just won’t touch. We have never had a burrito bowl turned down.
My husband and I LOVE spicy food and the Al Pastor Taco Kit came with some of the tastiest, spiciest sauce to spread over my marinated pork tacos. We wiped our plates clean. Embarrassingly clean. I know exactly what I am going to pick up for our next party as that Al Pastor Taco Kit came full to the brim with food easily enough for 5-7 adults. Took my husband and I nearly a week to finish. YUM.
You see those gorgeous Beef Tamales? Yes, they were fresh and perfect. Coming from someone who has lived in the Southwest for thirteen years? That should say something.
We were sent our favorites: Shredded Chicken and Seasoned Shredded Beef AND were able to try the Carnitas, Al Pastor Taco Kit and those oh so filling Beef Tamales. And I am more than a little excited that one of my readers will be able to pick FIVE items to be sent straight to your door.
Asking them not to dive right into their plateful of foods? Well, that right there took some restraint. A ton of restraint for a hungry toddler and preschooler. Thankful that the first shot worked(everyone’s eyes open is a win) and we were off to the races. Our fridge was overflowing with goodness.
And these two didn’t see to mind one bit that we had tacos all week. Definitely hit the store for more bell peppers- their fave to crunch on for Taco Tuesday’s.
And NOW onto the GIVEAWAY!
