Hormel Foods-Enjoying April Showers! #HormelFamily

    This month has been just like any typical April with some deceiving weather and some nice and sunny days and some not so sunny days.  Despite some of the bad weather, it is important to have some fun and engaging activities to enjoy indoors.

    Some people enjoy experimenting with new recipes when it is cold and rainy outside.  I’ve never been a gourmet chef, by any means, so I always enjoy checking out recipes in cookbooks that look like I could possibly prepare the meals successfully.  I also really enjoy hitting the grocery store and looking out for some new products to try.

    Luckily, our local grocery store always keeps all of our favorite foods on hand to help us stock up during a rainy day.  This month, I made a trip to pick up some items in order to cook up something new and tasty for my family.

    One of my favorite Hormel foods is Dinty Moore Beef Stew.  It is absolutely delicious and it is so easy to pair with just about any meal.  We like to pour it over white rice and enjoy a yummy meal.  I especially like that my boys love to eat this dish and they are getting some vegetables in there without even realizing it.

    We love to spend time together watching movies and eating popcorn and there is nothing like the feeling of eating Dinty Moore Beef Stew when it is cold and rainy outside and then snuggling up with my boys under a warm blanket and enjoying some flicks together.  I make sure that we all get to watch a movie that we like by taking turns allowing all of us to choose the movie that we watch.

    What are some of the ways that you keep your family busy during those days that you have to stay indoors?  We would love to hear about any special recipes that you prepare, any books that you read, or any crafts that you all do together!
