Cheesy Chicken or Steak Rice & Vegetable Bowl Recipe #NewFromHormel #Shop | Optimistic Mommy

There’s nothing I love more than when a brand I have enjoyed for a long time comes out with a new line of products.  Especially when those products make dinner even easier for me.  Since Riley is now in school, I am looking for even more easy to make meals – luckily Hormel has two new prodcuts that have high quality ingredients in them, and taste like the entire dinner was made from scratch!

I headed to my local Kroger Marketplace in search of Hormel’s Everyday Scratch and Hot Sandwich Meat products.  I figured they would be near the other refrigerated meats, but I was perusing near the deli and happened to come across the Hormel Everyday Scratch items on the very bottom shelf.  Right now, there’s a great coupon to get $1 off this product (Expires 11/30/2014)!

I did not see the Hormel Hot Sandwich Meats with the Everyday Scratch, so I headed back near where the rest of the refrigerated meats were.  BINGO!  Found it!  Unfortunately it looks like my Kroger just has the Philly Style Steak and Buffalo Style Chicken – I really hope they get the other 3 flavors in soon.  Don’t worry, there’s another $1 off coupon for the Hot Sandwich Meats too!  😉  This one expires 11/30/2014, as well.

I grabbed a few other essentials and headed home to make an easy meal.  Luckily I already had the other 2 ingredients I needed, besides the Hormel products.  So I was set as far as dinner goes!
