If you are like me and love doing things the easy way, stick around because we are going to hack a week night dinner the easy way!

It kills me to say this, but most of the time I am a really good planner. I always have my days mapped out, my money mapped out, and my meals mapped out, but when you get home from a hard day’s work, the last thing you want to think about is dinner (even if it was already planned). Sometimes I literally just cannot do it. I can’t bring myself to scrape together some sort of meal, let alone dessert.

I am too cheap to order out and would rather starve to death than cook.

Sound like you? So what do we do?


Well, I am here to show you the light at the end of the tunnel. The very first thing we do is head to our local Save-A-Lot and grab some of the awesome new America’s Choice® Creations products. These are totally going to be your new best friend when you’re running short on time for dinner, trust me!


America’s Choice® Creations products are not only crafted with high-quality ingredients but they are also exclusively sold at Save-A-Lot, so you know you will be getting them at a price you love! With choices like Bacon Mac n’ Cheese, Pecan Caramel Brownie Cookies, Triple Pepperoni Pizza, and more, how could you go wrong with America’s Choice® Creations.

Hack #1


If you are trying to trick your family into thinking that you worked away over a hot stove for hours cooking, America’s Choice® Creations products are going to be your secret weapon. One of my husband’s absolute favorite things to have for dinner is hamburgers. Lucky for me, America’s Choice® Creations makes delicious Black Angus Bacon & Cheddar Burgers that literally take 9 minutes to cook in the oven. Put these together with some lettuce, tomato, and onion to serve up a “homemade” dinner with less than 15 minutes of work.


I have a four-year-old so the options like Bacon Mac n’ Cheese, Black Angus Bacon & Cheddar Burgers, and Triple Pepperoni Pizza really appeal to me. Those are options that I know will go over well around here but, if you are looking for something a little fancier try the Honey Bourbon Salmon. You can even pair that with Crab Cakes for a gourmet style meal that will cost you less than $20!

Hack #2


Looking for extra praise for your hard work in the kitchen? Make a super fancy dessert like this caramel apple cheesecake. I know what you’re thinking. I was just complaining about not wanting to cook and here I am making gorgeous deserts.

Well guess what, the truth is I simply took something that was already great, America’s Choice® Creations Cheesecake, and just added a can of apple pie filling, some granola, and a drizzle of caramel! It takes less than 2 minutes!




Don’t like cheesecake (like my child)? I highly recommend you grab Peanut Butter Truffle Brownie! It’s so delicious! Simply add a dollop of whip cream and enjoy a homemade tasting dessert that YOU didn’t have to cook!


The Pecan Caramel Brownie Cookies are also a huge hit in my house!


Don’t let take out break the bank If you are pressed for time or just don’t feel like cooking, head to your local Save-A-Lot and pick up some delicious America’s Choice® Creations products for a “homemade” meal in less than 30 minutes!

  1. The Macaroni & Cheese with Bacon looks yummy. I’ve tried the Jimmy Dean brand . Now when I’m at Sav-a-lot I’m going to pick up the America’s Choice brand and try it.

  2. Can’t wait to try the lasagna! My family loves it, but I hate making it! There are so many choices and we love our Sav-A-Lot!

  3. I hear ya on rather starve than cook. I have those days too. 🙂 That hack for the Americas Creations cake is good. I love the caramel drizzle…perfect touch!

  4. Wow these are some really greats ideas for easy meals. I usually cook Maggi (instant noodles), due to less options.

  5. I try to make healthy homemade meals all the time, but occasionally I don’t feel like cooking. By having frozen meals or burgers around I can still eat healthy without putting too much effort into cooking.

  6. Wow! What a selection of delicious dishes! I’d love to try their Caramel Apple Cheesecake and the Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies look mouthwatering too!

  7. Thanks for sharing these ideas. Since we usually are home we tend to make fresh meals, nothing wrong with taking a day off and getting store bought 🙂
