Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits Feature!

Now that we seem to be busier than ever and back to school time is here, I find myself rushing to make a delicious dinner that the whole family will enjoy.  I like to be creative but honestly, spending hours over the stove and in the kitchen seems harder than ever these days.  Since eating an English Muffin doesn't fly for dinner, I was thrilled when this opportunity allowed me to experiment with the many options that Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits offered me!

A few things I do that seem to make my life a little easier, is to have a weekly food menu that incorporates one bigger meal that I can make on Sunday to eat through the first part of the week.  We also have been enjoying easy entrees paired with salads, plenty of fresh veggies and fruit...these all seem to be the staples around here.  When the nights are busy with activities, I find that preperation and a plan makes life so much easier!  I also try to post the week's menu on the refrigerator which helps so the kiddos aren't disappointed with dinner that evening.  They can anticipate the evenings dinner and also suggest what they want for the following week.

Pillsbury Grands! biscuits provide a variety of family favorite recipes, ready in under 30 minutes, that are delicious and have a little twist to help parents keep dinner fun, not boring.  I was impressed with the variety of easy recipes that I could whip up in no time that were creative and yummy.  I decided to forgo homemade pizza in favor of making Grands! Mini Pizzas with Grands! Jr Golden Layers Buttermilk Biscuits.  With 100 calories, these little pizza biscuits hit the spot and the whole family enjoyed them. I also enjoyed a night off from spending over an hour in the kitchen!  Served with a salad, this was an easy mid week meal.

I started with these little Grands! Jr Biscuits...
