The pressure is on! Santa Claus is not only coming to town, but so are mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, multiple cousins, spouses and their children! While it’s no surprise that holiday cooking and entertaining can be stressful, a little planning…and some secret weapons…can save a lot of time in the kitchen.
The National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association (NFRA) recommends you shop early, keep your fridge and freezer stocked full, and check out these easy to make holiday appetizers, entrées and desserts at EasyHomeMeals.com.
The frozen aisle of your local grocery store can be your holiday secret weapon – full of delicious ready to eat snacks, breakfast items, entrées, desserts and quality ingredients to make preparations easier, less stressful, and more enjoyable for holiday events, family gatherings and unexpected guests.
Top Holiday Tips:
- Cut yourself a break! Cheat a little…you don’t have to make everything from scratch. Spend less time in the kitchen and more time with family and friends…and don’t feel guilty about it!
