M&M Meat Shops Invites You!


M&M Meat Shops is encouraging Canadians everywhere to Bring Back the Mealtime Tradition!

Meal time has always been an opportunity for families to come together and spend quality time as a whole. The way time gets away from us each and every day is a constant reminder of how important it is to carve out family time in our often hectic, day to day lives.

On September 19, 2013 M&M Meat Shops invites you to participate in the 9th Annual National Family Dinner Night!

A recent national study completed for M&M Meat Shops reveals that fewer families than ever before are making family meal time part of their daily lives. Nearly 10 per cent of Canadians say that they never have dinner with their partner or their family*, and fewer than 40 per cent sit down with their family for a daily meal. 

Some of my favourite conversations between my family and I have occurred across the dinner table. These memories are some that I can only hope to create with my own family as our daughter gets older! If great memories aren't enough incentive to be a part of this event, how about a contest? :) 

About National Family Dinner Night

This year, in addition to encouraging everyone to enjoy a family meal, M&M Meat Shops is challenging Canadians to share their own family-favourite recipes that feature M&M Meat Shops’ products. 

From September 13 to October 11, 2013, you will be able to submit your recipes on the  M&M Meat Shops Facebook page to be entered for a chance to win 1 of 3 prizes of a $100 M&M Gift Card. Winners will be selected by a panel of M&M food and recipe experts and the winning recipes will be featured on www.mmmeatshops.com


Okay... so I know life can be crazy! Time can slip away quite easily, and sometimes you just need a little bit of quick inspiration!

Want to add a bit of flare to your mealtime? You can do that with M&M Meat Shops Chicken Breast Slices, drizzled with their own sweet and savoury teriyaki sauce and served over M&M Rice & Vegetable Medley.
  
Or you could try the newest M&M Meat Shops one-dish entrees: Steam and Serve Chicken Alfredo, Steam and Serve Hearty Beef & Potatoes or Spaghetti Bolognese. All feature great homestyle recipes, delectable ingredients and are ready in 12 minutes or less!

I hope you'll join my family, and families across Canada in the coming together for dinner 1 week from today on September 19th, 2013 for the 9th Annual National Family Dinner Night! :) 

What will you be making? I'm thinking some lasagna! That's always a favourite in our household...
  
What's one of your family's favourite meals?
