Testing semi-ready meals

In a couple of weeks I will be doing quite a bit of traveling, and my families main concern is, oh my god Ma, what are we going to eat?

So whilst doing some shopping this past weekend at Trader Joe’s with my son, he decided in his infamous wisdom, that we should buy “stuff” than he, his sister or the hubby, could easily cook and still end up with a nice homemade tasty kind of dinner, bless his cotton socks 🙂

He chose some lovely looking Beef Sirloin in BBQ Sauce and some Garlic Fries.

Today was the day to put this menu to the test. He turned on the oven to the temperature stated on the beef package. Opened the packets and placed them in a roasting pan.

He let the beef cook away for the time stated on the packet, took it out of the oven when it was done and under Mamacitas instruction, covered it with foil to keep it warm and let it rest whilst he cooked the Garlic Fries.

Oven temperature was changed, in went the fries and whilst they were cooking away, he placed the packet of chopped garlic and herbs in a bowl, ready for tossing.

This time round, I sliced the beef so he could see in which direction to go, so hopefully he is all set! Next time, he’s on his own!DSC05901

Out came the fries and whilst piping hot, they got tossed in the bowl with the garlic and herbs mix.

Finally, time to eat dinner and decide if these ingredients stay “ON” the list of must have in the freezer whilst Mama is traveling 🙂

And it’s a “YES”, we have a winner! Everyone enjoyed and agreed that, it won’t be a Mamacita’s homemade meal, but it will be ok under the circumstances!

Gotta love my family ❤
