This fall we’ll be experiencing a whole new household. There are lots of changes to adapt to. We’ll now have a college student and a preschooler (yes, our boys are that far apart in age!). One thing I remember from my younger years is the after school hunger that I experienced. It seemed I was always ready to eat as soon as I made it home after school. We are gearing up for this after school hunger with Hot Pockets and Stouffer’s Mac Cups!
We’ve been doing a lot of preparing for the fall. We recently got a deep freezer for our basement because we know we’ll have to buy extra food now! ZZ, my college student, and I made a run to Walmart the other night after the little kids were in bed. (By the way, it’s pretty scary being in the car with YOUR KID driving!! lol) We went to the frozen food section to find some things for the upcoming after school days of hunger! We stocked up! The first thing we picked up was Hot Pockets brand sandwiches.
We found the value packs of Hot Pockets for a great price! Each package has 12 Hot Pockets in it! ZZ chose his favorite: Pepperoni with garlic buttery seasoned crust! Sounds delicious, doesn’t it?! He really loves these! My husband does too, and since he teaches and also seems to come home with that after school hunger these are definitely going to permanently be on our grocery list! Of course school isn’t in session just yet, but ZZ couldn’t wait! He had to get in on the goodness early! I have a feeling I’ll be buying more before school even starts! 😉 Something always happens when mama tries to prepare ahead of time, doesn’t it? 😉
Both of our boys can really eat! Most boys do have quite the appetite, right? LA LOVES mac-n-cheese so when I heard heard about Stouffer’s Mac Cups I knew we had to stock up! These, too, were found right in the frozen food section!
I was really excited about these Mac Cups because it will make for a quick solution to the after school hunger that will be in full effect in our home in just about a month! Remember, mac-n-cheese isn’t just for dinner anymore! These Mac Cups comes in two packs and can easily be stored in the freezer for access after school!
As a mama, I’m happy to have these after school foods in our home to satisfy my hungry guys! What do you keep on hand for after school hunger?
