Michelina's MakeItYourMichelina via homeworkThe weather is cooling, school has started and the holidays are around the corner. You know what that means… the family schedule is starting to get jam packed and there’s even less time in the day for busy moms.

Michelina's MakeItYourMichelina via homework12When things get super busy, my go-to lunches are these little frozen meals. They’re quick and easy and get me through the day until I can make dinner for the family. I recently tried Michelina’s Beef & Peppers and it was quite tasty.
Michelina's MakeItYourMichelina via homeworkAs I often do with these frozen meals, I added a little something extra. Since the Beef & Peppers comes with an Asian sauce and is served with rice, I also added some sesame noodles on the side. I make up a big batch ahead of time and just heat up a little portion.
