Create delicious, easy family meals with help from these simple sauteed vegetables.

Busy is an understatement. There are never enough hours in my day to do all the things that I need to accomplish. Not even close. Can you relate?

Easy Side Dishes: Simple Sauteed Vegetables

I’m excited to partner with Mirum to bring you my thoughts on quality meals this holiday season.

That’s never more true than at the holidays. We’ve got special programs and parties at school. The shopping and wrapping. The baking and decorating. Let’s not forget all the usuals: homework, laundry and meal prep.

Easy Way to Sautee Veggies

Oh, the meal prep. My boys eat enough for an army so I’m pretty sure I spend about 95% of my time in the kitchen.

So the name of the game for me has become making the most of each moment by making smart, efficient choices that make it easier to get everything done that I need to.

I also don’t want to sacrifice quality for my family. I want the very best for them. One way I’m making that happen is by working smarter in the kitchen.

Meals That Do More

The Make Meals That Do More products at Walmart help me to get quality meals on the table quickly while sticking to my budget. It also allows us to have those coveted evenings around the kitchen table together.

Original Country Crock

Another thing I’m loving on these busy days: Walmart’s Grocery Pickup. It enables me to quickly get the freshest ingredients for all my holiday and post-holiday cooking at an everyday low price. All the items I need without hours spent inside the store…. genius!

Vegetable Side Dish

These simple sauteed vegetables are the perfect side that all my kids love. Paired with a rotisserie chicken, it’s the perfect fast meal for those busy nights where we’re running everywhere.
