I mean I can. But lately I've been reading all these mom's making all these dishes and claim, "Oh it's soooo easy, blah, blah, blah...."
My poor son is destined to a life of shake and bake and instant stuff(gotta love the freezer isle at wal mart).
But I finally brought myself to read the back of the packages....
Stouffer's "Easy Express" Yankee pot roast skillet
(Me thinking, oh pot roast with veggies, that's healthy!!!)
300 calories per serving(ok, not bad)
930 mg of sodium (crikey!!!)
8 grams of fat (I went to college, I should know if this is bad or not, for the life of me I can't remember)
38 grams of carbs
18 grams of protein(ok, this sounds good....I think)
Banquet chicken nuggets and fries
15 mg of cholesterol(How is my cholesterol "better than my doctors" as he claims~My doctor says that)
560 mg of sodium
My goal for this new year was to learn how to cook healthy.

Do you have a crockpot? That takes care of a lot of the cooking. For a pot roast just dump the pot roast, 1/2 pkg of dry onion soup mix & 1/4 cup water. Cover & cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. I've made stews, chili, roast beef or chicken, sloppy joes, spaghetti sauce...all in the crockpot.
The spices in my cupboard read very close to what you have with the addition of oregano, basil, parsley & cayenne pepper. You can break up the lumps in the onion powder; mine does the same thing. With simple spices you CAN make tasty dishes like a seasoning rub for roast chicken, pizza sauce, spaghetti sauce, taco seasoning, stir fry...
I have many in my blog Rhonda's Homestyle Recipes (just click on the link). Â Feel free to check it out and use whatever you think you could manage.Â You can also contact me & I'd be happy to help with a
