Now that summer is in full swing, I’ve had to adjust our grocery list to make sure we have plenty of great lunch options for the kids to eat when they’re home. I love having choices that are filling – and that are quick to make, too. I recently headed to H-E-B and stocked up on Tyson® Chicken Nuggets (by the way, click here and type in Tyson Chicken Nuggets into the search box to find a $1.00 coupon!) & State Fair® Corn Dogs (keep an eye out for the $2.00 yellow in-store coupon at H-E-B!) from their frozen section.
We love to go to the freezer aisle to stock up on foods that’ll fuel our kids for long days of playing hard. Both the Tyson nuggets and the State Fair corn dogs are good sources of protein, so they’re a great go-to for lunch or even for a mid-afternoon snack. The corn dogs are portable so we can just heat and eat – even take them in the car while out running errands! Our kids love that they’re fun to eat and that they’re a great mix of sweet and savory. And the nuggets are a win-win for me and the kids. The kids think they taste great, and I love that they’re made with 100% all natural ingredients, and use white meat from chickens raised with no added steroids or hormones.
The summer is also a great time to come up with creative activities, and the Tyson nuggets inspired me to do something really fun. Our kids love to watch cooking shows, and we’ve especially enjoyed watching some of the kids’ cooking championships as a family. Our two oldest kids have said they’d love to go on one of those shows, so we decided to have our own cooking challenge: the Chicken Nugget Championship.
The rules? Each of our boys was responsible for coming up with their own recipe using Tyson chicken nuggets. They had to use ingredients we already had in the kitchen for their creations. Brian, my mom, and I each tasted both recipes and were the judges.
