Make the holidays simple

As I mentioned earlier, the holidays can bring a bit of craziness to the table which is why I am all about simplifying things as much as possible. With Simply Potatoes, you don’t have to worry about peeling, cooking and cutting potatoes to have that perfect dish. It’s all done for you and you have fresh and delicious potatoes that are perfect for any dish.

Simply Potatoes are:

  • Made with real ingredients
  • Made with fresh never frozen potatoes
  • Easy to prepare
  • Less prep time
  • Simply Made. Simply Satisfying
  • Easy to have on hand
  • No peeling or shredding required
  • Versatile, delicious as is or in your favorite recipe

I made this casserole is less than half the time I would have if I had made the potatoes myself. There wasn’t a difference in taste either, it was delicious and nobody in my family knew that they were potatoes packaged and ready to eat! Imagine the possibilities as you make those side dishes for Christmas dinner. Your life can be easy and tasty!

Aside from the cooking aspect, here are a few of my favorite holiday tips:

  • Use bags and tissue paper instead of wrapping paper, it is much faster and easier to wrap gifts that way.
  • Use an artificial tree versus a real tree. Less mess and your money is not going to waste since you can reuse an artificial tree each year.
  • Prep holiday meals ahead of time. You can put together your casseroles and side dishes  a few nights before your holiday dinner. Then just pop them in the oven and that day is less hectic and gives you more time to spend with family and friends who are visiting.
  • Avoid dishes by using elegant paper and plastic utensils and plates. Many stores carry high-quality plastic utensils that also look nice. Then they can be thrown away and you can avoid a mountain of dishes to do.
