Easy sides with the help of Marie Callenders #ComfortsFromHome

This post brought to you by Marie Callender’s. The content and opinions expressed below are that of CleverlyInspired.

You know that week of Thanksgiving when we spend all the time in the kitchen and seem to be cooking the whole week that we have no dinner is planned for people to eat. I almost got a little attitude when my kids come up to me and say hey mom what’s for dinner? When I’ve been working on chopping vegetables and making gravy all day. But we have to eat even though Thanksgiving is the biggest meal of the year we still have to eat dinner that week so Marie Callender’s makes it really easy.
