BJ’s Offers Delicious and Quick Wellsley Farms Fresh Prepared Meals
I’ve complained about our commute before. It’s a constant thorn in our side on getting home, winding down, having a NICE meal, and then preparing for the same routine the next day. Most of the meals we prepare weeknights are usually between 30 and 40 minutes from start to finish. There are a few *coughEXCEPTIONScough*
Yeah, I’m not the best at timing recipes out and usually think it takes less time than it actually does. I try. Really I do. But some weeks I’m so busy and tired that I can’t really write the recipes the way I should.
There, I’ve said it. Sometimes I’m a seat of the pants, make it up as I go along foodie.
And then sometimes, I just want dinner to magically appear in the fridge ready to be reheated and served. This is where BJ’s Wholesale Club comes in. I’m sure you’ve heard of their Wellsley Farms brand, right? Really? You haven’t?
Well, let me skool ya!
BJ’s has this really delicious and inexpensive brand called Wellsley Farms. I love their deli meat! Just saying. They also have re-heatable sides, frozen meals, snacks, appetizers, and many other “store brand” food products. They’re delicious. Honestly. Just look at that lasagna! Who wouldn’t want to dig in to that after a difficult day of work? Preparing for a holiday party? Throw some of their reheat and serve appetizers in your basket. Dessert? Try some cream puffs.
Wellsley Farms also have delicious soups and wraps. I can’t wait to try this Chicken Noodle Soup. The broth has that perfect color so you KNOW it will be full of delicious flavor. The noodles and vegetables are nice and chunky. Perfect for a chilly fall or winter night watching a game or a movie. Honestly, I’m seeing me, with a bowl of this soup and a delicious Turkey and Spinach with Swiss wrap watching some football on a Saturday. Maybe this Saturday…where Ohio State and Michigan State go head to head. Hmm…
Wellsley Farms also have some delicious salads! Like Italian Style Caprese Salad and this Butternut Squash Quinoa and Wheatberry Salad. We had this salad for dinner to go with some creamy chicken and pasta. Recipe to be posted soon. I loved all the colors and textures that were in this package and thought it would make for a quick and tasty side salad for our dinner. Besides, I’m a sucker for quinoa.
When I opened the package, the aroma of the butternut squash was my first impression. It has that sweet smell that you know will just taste delicious. The add ins are in a top section. The greens and dressing are in the lower compartment which is large enough to mix all the ingredients and the dressing together for a quick and healthy entree salad or side salad for any meal. Since everything you need is in the container, there’s no need to dirty any dishes. Win win !
Honestly, just look at those colors! That’s a spring mix, the butternut squash, quinoa, tangy cranberries and raisins, and creamy goat cheese. This is a hearty and delicious side salad or you can easily double up on the servings for a filling entree salad. Add some rotisserie chicken or some sliced steak and you’ve got the perfect main dish salad.
I purchased this salad, and a package of Italian Style Meatballs. We’re having those for dinner in a couple of days. I can’t wait. They look so tasty I just want to rip open the package and scarf them down taste a few. What can I say, I’m a sucker for a good meatball or meatloaf. And, well, lasagna an I have had a love affair since I was very young. Dad used to call me Garfield. I’ll just leave it at that.
What’s so nice about these prepared meals is the simple fact that the dinner items are baked right in the package. Yup. Just throw it in the oven, walk the dog, do some dishes, cook some pasta if you want, and then sit down to a delicious and hearty dinner from Wellsley Farms! Lunch items? Open and serve. Can’t get any easier than that, can you? I didn’t think so.
