This past month has been quite the transitional period for our family. My wife recently gave birth to our 2nd child and we decided it would be best if she did not go back to work and instead, stayed home to care for both the baby as well as our preschooler, who we pulled out of daycare. Prior to this, we would typically take turns making home cooked meals each day, but lately there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Between sleepless nights due to a colicky baby, diaper changes, round-the-clock feedings and doctors’ appointments on top of my work responsibilities, there are moments that this newly formed family of four can barely lift a finger by the time dinner rolls around, let alone cook a huge meal. So what are our alternatives? Spend lots of money and order delivery? Make peanut-butter & jelly sandwiches? For a 6'2, 230 pound guy, the prospect of missing out on good meals was troubling.
Our questions were quickly answered when we were introduced to Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles. Compacting the power of Liquid Gold into individual serving sizes, Skillets Singles are available in 4 tasty varieties, they’re super easy to store (no fridge required) and simple to make.
How simple you might ask? Well, allow me (and my assistant) to demonstrate:

<!--[if !supportLists]-->2) <!--[endif]-->Place in microwave for 60 seconds
3) <!--[endif]-->Stir in the Cheesy goodness that is #LiquidGold
<!--[if !supportLists]-->4) <!--[endif]-->Congratulate yourselves on a job well done
<!--[if !supportLists]-->5) <!--[endif]-->Eat until it’s gone
What surprised me the most was the how hearty it was. I'm used to needing additional food to supplement my microwavable meal, but I was completely satisfied after only one.
In addition to dinner, it’s great for lunch too. Oftentimes, I find myself rushing out the door to work in the morning and forgetting to pack a lunch for myself. Now, instead of overpaying for lunch at a restaurant somewhere, I can buy a few Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles and stick them in my desk drawer. And boom, just like that, I have a quick, great-tasting meal at work without even having to leave the building. But.. Shhh! This is our little secret though. We can't let my co-workers find out about this, or else my precious Skillets Singles might not be there next time I'm ready for lunch.
Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles are currently sold at Wal-Mart. Each container has an IRC (Instant Redeemable Coupon) for $1 off that you can take advantage of at checkout.
It just goes to show you, folks that you don't need a lot of money (or time) to treat yourself to a Personal Feast. So give it a try! I'd love to know your thoughts.
