Family Time & Salisbury Steak Sandwiches #CountOnCor #OvenTimeTips (& Giveaway Ends 1/29)

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of On-Cor. The opinions and text are all mine.

This month starts full swing for us for hockey season. My son has 12 games in the next eight weeks plus 4-5 practices a week! That craziness doesn’t even include my other two kid’s schedules or family commitments. The last thing I want to do is spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing and cooking when we do have some time at home. I am all about quick meals I can make at home that appeals to my whole family. On-Cor is a brand that my whole family enjoys. The On-Cor Lasagna with Meat Sauce has become a weekly favorite and when I saw the Gravy and 6 Salisbury Steaks I knew we had to try it out. With the On-Cor new packaging showing exactly what I am feeding my family, I feel better too knowing I am making a quality dinner.

I love that I was able to pop in the frozen entrée and spend some quality time with my kids. Usually, I am so exhausted or rushing around that I don’t sit down and actually play with kids during the week. Baking especially is something that is not on my radar during the week. Popping in an On-Cor family-friendly entrée meant I had time to play a game with my kids. Yes, we actually sat down together and played a game while dinner cooked.

I admit too that while we were waiting for dinner and playing the game, we may or may not have enjoyed some popcorn. Seriously my kids must have thought an alien took over my body as their “normal” mom doesn’t let them have popcorn as a snack before dinner or play board games with them!

Before we started the game though, I spent about ten minutes preparing some cookies with my daughter who has been begging me for probably a month now to bake with her! When I said, “Let’s make cookies!” She said, “What about dinner?” I said that we are trying a new dish in the oven and we just have to wait for the timer to go off, she had her baking apron on before I finished talking! She was so excited to make cookies for dessert, which is something we never have.

On-Cor is just a freezer away for an always easy, always satisfying and always ready solution for families to spend more time together. Perfect for those parents who made New Year’s resolutions to get organized with mealtime and spend more family time! Now even though we may have to rush out at night for a sports practice, we can at least enjoy time together while the oven does all the work.

The Gravy and 6 Salisbury Steaks has six salisbury steaks in it, which for my family meant two steaks each. On-Cor does the prep work, so I just had to pop it in the oven and take care of my other to-do’s that I usually neglect! I normally would have served these with mashed potatoes but to make them more kid-friendly, I went the sandwich route. Seriously, isn’t everything better when it’s in sandwich form?

I honestly cannot believe I never served my family the On-Cor Gravy and 6 Salisbury Steaks. There are not many dishes all five of us can agree on, especially my picky kids. The hearty On-Cor entrées are simply delicious. No frills, no fancy. Just really, really good food. Even my son with multiple food allergies was able to enjoy them!

Don’t just take my word – Check out On-Cor for yourself
