What is an Air Fryer?

The air fryer is a less messy, quick and healthy way to fry your food. We LOVE ours! I got mine at Costco, but I’ve heard great things about this one. My son and husband have been using it non-stop. For a couple of guys who never cook, I’m amazed by the things they are frying up in the air fryer.

My husband hosts a party each year for the big game. His game day parties always crack me up, because he doesn’t invite anyone but our kids and me! This recipe will be the perfect snack to serve my crew.

When I want even more melty coverage, I like to use Borden® Cheese Thick Cut Shreds. Ideal for melting, Borden® Cheese Thick Cut Shreds offer a wider shred that is nearly five times larger than traditional shreds, delivering smooth, creamy coverage to my favorite cheesy recipes.

National Cheese Curd Day: The Most Magical Day In All the Land

“National Cheese Curd Day?”

More like “National Get That Yumminess In My Belly NOW Day!”

Wondering when this day of delicious dairy celebration will be? Well mark your calendar for October 15, friends, and get ready to pack up the family to enjoy the yummies day of the year!

We hit Culver’s early (because we couldn’t wait until October 15th, OBVIOUSLY) and ordered ALL THE THINGS.

Burgers, chicken strips, grilled cheese, fries, Culver’s concrete mixers, and CHEESE CURDS.

We were fresh off a busy school day that had been capped by an active session of Taekwondo, we this crew was HANGRY. And you know what makes a hangry tummy happy? Warm, crispy, ooey-gooey, cheesy goodness. So you better believe that those cheese curds delivered.

It was, admittedly, our first visit to Culver’s and my kiddo’s and I could not stop yapping about the tasty food.

And the true test of a great burger? Ordering it bunless for your gluten-free self…the verdict?

DELICIOUS!

Our love of cheese and dairy runs deep at my house. So when I explained the “cheese curd” concept to my kids they were, admittedly, confused. Luckily…YouTube has the answer…

Did you know…

Finding a heart shaped curd means you’ll have good luck.

Every Culver’s Cheese Curd comes from ONE DAIRY — La Grander Hillside Dairy in Stanley, Wisconsin.

A secret Culver’s menu hack? Get a side of Cheese Curds and pile them in your ButterBurger® and prepare to be AMAZED.

Grilled Chicken Flatbread Two Ways

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. The opinions and text are all mine.

We’re soaking in the last lazy days of summer…relishing the fact that I don’t have to care that no one is dressed, fed, or out of their jammies by 8:30 AM — the normal time when the bus comes cruising through the neighborhood during the school year.

But it’s time to prepare for a shift to a more regimented schedule—school days are NO JOKE.

Especially when you add on those extracurricular activities.

My kiddos are both in school all day and then attend Taekwondo class 3-4 afternoons each week…and it takes A LOT to fuel these kiddos through their school day and then to power through an hour of Taekwondo.

We are past the point of fruit snacks, people. No granola bar is going to fit this energy bill.

THESE KIDS NEED FOOD.

Real food that I can whip up quickly, that they’ll happily gobble up, and that is made from pantry staples that I always have around—the sort of pantry staples that I can find conveniently at a local Dollar General store! (Don’t miss our $50 Dollar General gift card giveaway at the end of this post.)

Like these Grilled Chicken Flatbreads.

The key to the handy dandy nature of these snacks are the fact that I used Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken. They are precooked, so warming them up in a takes no time (3-4 minutes) and I can pull out just a few pieces and go about my merry business. That means that I can get these delicious flatbread in the hungry hands of my kids in about 6-7 minutes. BOOM.

And because my kids like the illusion of variety, I have two versions — a BBQ Cheddar and a Chicken Parmesan.

 

Because our schedule is tight, I use the minutes before the afternoon school bus arrives to prep these so they are toasty and ready when the kiddos come barreling through the door. That way they have time to sit down, enjoy their snack, decompress from the day a bit, and get ready for the next part of the day.

You can pick up a whole basket full of handy and delicious Tyson® and Jimmy Dean® products from Dollar General that can help you get yummy food into the bellies of you and your family, even when your school day schedule is BANANAS.
