When I first started dating my boyfriend, Paul, I slaved for HOURS in the kitchen making him homemade lasagna.
I simmered the sauce overnight, even setting my alarm and getting up several times overnight to stir.
I made homemade pasta noodles, rolling out the sheets with a hand-cranked pasta machine and kneading the dough until the flour created a concrete-like paste in the crevices of my countertops (which was not a reflection of my finished pasta product, let me just say).
I layered sauces, noodles, cheeses and meats until my pan weighed more than either of my children at birth.
Do you know that I didn’t even need to bother with all that work?
Brookshire’s has created Fresh Take Meals, in the deli section, to give you home-cooked tastes without you having to slave over the stove, or set your alarm for odd hours of the day and night.
I’ve enjoyed Fettuccine Alfredo, Chicken Parmesan, Roasted Salmon with Rice Pilaf and Baby Carrots, and Chicken Spaghetti, all at the ease of reheating in my microwave or oven.
The dishes taste homemade because they are homemade, right in your local Brookshire’s store.
Pick up at the Fresh Take Meals section in the Deli. Then, stop by the Bakery for a loaf of freshly baked bread and the salad bar for a tossed green salad or an assortment of olives. You’ll have a dinner on the table that you can feel great about in minutes.
