Simply Suppers Experience !!!!!

Lordy knows I love to gab and this is so much fun building this little space, and getting so much inspiration in seeing what others have done with their spaces also. :)

I wanted to blab a bit about this recent awesome event I was introduced to called Simply Suppers by my good friend Kiera.

The website is www.simplysupper.ca
and basically it is a entree preparation evening. I know that really it has been a godsend for me, I am not a chef or would ever even claim that I like to cook at all. I have found in the last few years well I have just gotten plain bored with trying to come up with quick and easy and good meals to make for a starving teenager haha. When Kiera (did I mention she is my very good friend haha) told me about this entree or supper pre-preparation evening she was going to I was intrigued. So when she decided to do it again, I thought why not give it a try - I would never say it is for everyone, but here is what it has done for my little family:

- My son looks forward to supper again and so do I
- The ingredients are all fresh - I put them together myself so I can see exactly what goes into my food - and no preservatives!
- We have variation in our menu - get to try new things without the hassle of buying tonnes of extra ingredients that I may never again use
- It fits our time line, I am a full time working mom that gets home when dinner should be on the table, so the fact that most meals can be finished up in 30-45 mins is great timing for us
- The portions are generous - my son can have seconds (he is a good sized strapping teenager) and I also can still have lunch for the next day!
- It has sparked my imagination - so that the other nights when I haven't pulled out a simply suppers entree from the freezer - I am more apt to want to make supper, and see more options of what to make!

I really am enjoying trying this out - like I said it is not for everyone but has been awesome for our busy little family, and well worth it.

Again Thank You Kiera!!!!!
