“Just Add Turkey”

Reser’s Main Street Bistro Baked Sides

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and soon families across the country will be sitting down to a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. My husband and I both enjoy cooking & baking for this event, but let’s face it… it can be a bit overwhelming. There’s the turkey that needs a lot of preparation and roasting time, plus salads, side dishes, desserts…the list goes on and on! Whether you enjoy cooking or don’t, you should check out the Main Street Bistro Classic Baked Sides made by Reser’s Fine Foods. You could save yourself a ton of time on your Thanksgiving dinner using these side dishes.

From Reser’s Fine Foods web page: Our refrigerated–never–frozen sides come fully baked with a golden brown cheese topping and taste fresh from the oven. Dig into these comfort food classics tonight!

Reser’s is a family owned and operated company that has been making delicious meals since 1950. Their products can be found in most local grocery stores. They offer a large variety of dinners and side dishes as well as with salads, dips, spreads and more. They are a very good tasting and inexpensive way to add to your family’s meal in a hurry.

Here’s what we received:

Available all year

  • Baked Scalloped Potatoes (very good!)
  • Baked Macaroni & Cheese (nice and cheesy…almost as good as my Grandma’s)

Limited Edition – Available for holiday season only

  • Mashed Sweet Potato Bake (Check out their recipe for sweet potato pie)
  • Baked Homestyle Stuffing (I made this in the microwave. Taste was very good but texture would be better if it were baked in the oven)
  • Baked Green Bean Casserole (Another Thanksgiving classic – YUM!)
  • Baked Spiced Apple Cranberry Bake (We thought this was good but would like to have it over vanilla ice cream or maybe in a pie crust).

You can either microwave (5-10 minutes depending on item) or bake in the oven (18-25 minutes depending on item). I tried some items in the microwave and some in the oven and although there isn’t a huge difference between the two, I think the oven does produce better results. The microwave is of course, much faster, so if time is an issue that would be your best bet. Either way you can cook them right in their own container (remove outer packaging and plastic wrap first).  Of course, you could transfer them into casserole dishes and make them look even more home made!

Baked Scalloped Potatoes Spiced Apple Cranberry BakeTo preserve the best product quality, Reser’s does not recommend freezing their refrigerated items. However, if you do freeze them they recommend that you thaw them in the refrigerator rather than at room temperature.

On the downside, these are not exactly diet-friendly items (that’s pretty normal for comfort foods).

elf-on-the-shelf2

Elf on the Shelf SALE Price $16.99 (Regularly $29.99)

Don’t miss this HOT after-Christmas sale at Pottery Barn Kids to get Elf on the Shelf  for only $16.99 (reg. $29.99) + FREE Shipping. Get it NOW and have it ready for next year!! We finally got Elf on the Shelf this year.  It’s in a gift box that includes a book. Elf on the Shelf is almost NEVER on sale except for after Christmas, so here’s your chance to start this sweet Holiday tradition for your family.

As the story goes, the Elf on the Shelf flies home to the North Pole each night while your kids are sleeping, reporting to Santa about how children behave. It’s how Santa knows who should go on the Naughty or Nice list! Elf on the Shelf then flies back to your home and lands in a different spot each morning. Children are not to touch the elf, as it may disrupt his Christmas magic! Elf on the Shelf leaves on Christmas morning before your kids awake, and will not return until next year – usually around Thanksgiving.  There are TONS of fun ideas on where Elf on the Shelf could end up each day, and no shortage of Christmas magic.

My daughter LOVES her elf, and named him Elfey. She was very sad to learn that he wouldn’t be back until Thanksgiving, but asked Elfey for everything on her Christmas wish list (and he delivered!)  One of the things she asked for was a plush GIRL elf that she could keep all year, so she wouldn’t miss Elfey too much.  :)
