Is Convenience Food Really “Convenient”?

I see people buying Hamburger Helper or packaged meals. I know they are busy and think that they are saving time. I just disagree.
Last night I made a smoked picnic shoulder. While it does take time, it is not a lot of work, it just cooks for a long time. Also, if you take the time to make at least one really good meal a week, you can make extra and prepackage your own convenience food.

I have four meals worth of ham frozen and we will have another meal of ham tonight.That is five nights that I just have to reheat some ham for dinner. Add some nice bread and a salad and you have a great meal that is quicker than most “convenience food” and will taste way better.

Please try at least one great meal a week and make your own packaged food! Your stomach and family will thank you!
