Have you ever heard of Glory Foods? Their tagline should be “Helping Folks Fake Homecooking” because you can seriously get away with throwing this stuff in a pot and saying you made it from scratch.
This may come as a shock to you, but when I first got married 95% of the meals I cooked came from a can or box and 95% of the time it was Glory’s brand. Yep it’s true. Ask my hubby. We were young, flat out broke and in love. I cooked just about everything in my handy dandy electric skillet or the one stock pot we had. I look back now and laugh at just how love struck we were. Nothing else mattered. I think I was married for about a year before I started really building my kitchen & spice stash and cooking from scratch.
I was introduced to Glory foods when I was chatting on a popular hair forum and the ladies were talking about how incredible Glory products were. The next day I picked up a Rotisserie chicken, a can of Glory collard greens, Glory black eyed peas, glory candied yams and a box of their cornbread mix. Dinner was done in a matter of minutes and tasted like grandma had stopped by! (Dang I wish I had that plate right now) This was one of the first meals I made in our new home.
Glory Foods got us through a lot of affordable, fast, southern-style meals back then and I still love and use their products today. Those prewashed and chopped collards greens around Thanksgiving time are a LIFESAVER. OMG please get those greens! It will save you so much time.
If you’ve never tried Glory foods then you are missing out honey! I have never had food come from a can or box yet still taste homemade and seasoned to perfection. They also have a ton of fresh packed and already cut produce as well like squash, mustard greens, sweet potatoes, and lots more. You can check out the inventory below. I love grilling chicken breasts, cooking those sweet potatoes in brown sugar, butter and cinnamon and steaming a side of that yellow squash and zucchini. It’s such a fresh, home cooked dinner that is ready super quick since you don’t have to do all that chopping.
Fresh Produce Ready To Use For Those Super Busy Days
Glory was so nice and sent me this basket full of their yummy, soulful products. I had just about tried everything already though.
