Meals Like Mom Used to Make from Blount's Family Kitchen

By Holly Christy, Publisher of Macaroni Kid Germantown, MD April 20, 2020

One of my most prized possessions is the cookbook my mom made for me, full of her hand-written recipes. From cover to cover, it’s full of the dishes she made us all the time as kids. Some recipes are simple and some are more complicated, but mostly they’re familiar, hearty, satisfying meals that take a long time to cook. The problem is, as much as I want to, I don’t always have time to make a home-cooked meal. And you can only eat out and get by on frozen options so many times before you really start to crave those satisfying meals like mom used to make.

Blount’s Family Kitchen, a 5th generation family-owned company, aims to fill the gap for families like mine who want to enjoy those home-cooked flavors but don’t always have the time to make dinner from scratch. Their meals are minimally processed, and cooked in small batches under the watchful eye of highly-trained culinary staff. You can find these meals in the refrigerated section of the deli department at Acme. The varieties include:

  • Beef Stroganoff with Noodles - tender stew beef in a decadent sour cream sauce with egg noodles
  • Macaroni and Beef in Tomato Sauce - a classic American comfort dish with ground beef and elbow macaroni in a chunky tomato sauce
  • Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo with Penne - white meat chicken and broccoli with penne pasta in a parmesan-garlic Alfredo sauce
  • Chicken with Noodles in Marsala Wine Sauce - white meat chicken and penne pasta in a savory mushroom sauce with sweet Marsala wine

It’s been so convenient to have a fridge stocked with hearty options for a quick meal! My 10-year-old can easily make one all by himself, which is a life-saver, and my middle-schooler likes having one for her lunch. They’re especially fond of the Macaroni and Beef in Tomato Sauce and the Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo with Penne!

It was a treat to find these Blount’s Family Kitchen meals, and to be able to share the love with friends and neighbors. I know plenty of busy moms who could use a night off from making dinner! Check out the highlights of our trip to pick-up these tasty meals and deliver them to some deserving moms last month: 

For a quick meal before practice or an easy and satisfying lunch at school or at work - Blount’s Family Kitchen refrigerated meals are a great choice!
