McCain have launched the back to normality campaign to help mums and dads get back into the full swing of the school routine and mid-week teas for the new year.
As part of the initiative, they created a Back To Normal pack and I was sent one over to try out for our own family teatimes. The pack contained an oven tray, serving tongs, oven gloves, enamel plate, egg timer and a £20 supermarket gift card of my choice.
Also in the pack were some recipe ideas but I was able to make anything I wanted. The recipes sounded good but not really anything that all my kids would eat together. Anyway off to the shops I went and look at all of these McCain goodies that I managed to pick up, along with some other bits.
There are lots of potato products here to keep us going. I did have my eye on the new “peri peri” fries but I know none of my children would eat them so instead I picked up – southern fries, hash browns, smiles, micro chips and ridge cut beef flavour fries.
My kids can be fussy so I try to make things that they will all eat but try keep it fairly healthy at the same time.
First meal is chicken Kiev with the southern fries and peas. The fries have a lovely seasoned flavour.
Our third meal is a home made chicken tikka curry with rice and a few smileys.
I think all kids love the smiley face potato shapes.
We have enjoyed cooking with the McCain potato products.
