Between the 95+ degree weather and the AC being on the fritz I’m doing everything I can to not have to cook. I take advantage of days like today, when the wind is blowing and the temperature is in the mid to low 80’s, to get my cooking done for the week.
I’ve had some help planning this weeks menu with the help of Food Lion’s new Recipe portal.
I found all kinds of delicious recipes on Food Lion’s newly updated website. There are several ways to filter the recipes including:
- Filter by cuisine type (Asian, Italian, Mexican, etc..)
- Filter by main ingredient
- Filter by meals (breakfast, brunch, lunch, etc..)
- Filter by Lifestyle (cooking for two, gluten free, vegetarian, etc..)
There are even more ways to filter so you can find the recipes that anyone you serve will love. Once you find a recipe you love you can check off the ingredients and add them to your shopping list!
My favorite feature by far is the ability to add your own recipes. I did it and it was so easy! You can see my Philly Mac & Cheese recipe on the Food Lion website.
Clicking on the heart by any of the recipes will save them to your Food Lion ‘My Recipes’ account. This makes it easy to save recipes to come back to later and add them to your meal plan!
So, how did I come up with this Philly Mac & Cheese idea? Well, I walked through every aisle in Food Lion while I was shopping. This is normal for me and how I get inspired. The first stop was the produce aisle where I found the Sliced Fajita Medley.
Then I found a package of shaved beef that was just calling my name. Farfalle, Pepper Jack Cheese and a few random ingredients later and I had the brilliant idea!
I bought enough ingredients to double the Philly Mac & Cheese recipe so I could freeze half of it for later.
If you have a recipe you think the world would love to try then you should definitely add it to the Food Lion Recipe Portal. It’s super simple to do and who knows, your recipe could become a hit!
