Well, I had this kind of moment this week, and decided to put these wonderful, yet neglected, ingredients to good use! I mean, why not?! I had already purchased them, and certainly did not want to waste them.
So, what did I come up with? I had frozen meatballs, green beans, mushrooms, and rice, which just so happen to be foods that my boys love!
And, since I didn’t have a dinner planned for this particular night, I got creative and put together this fabulous One-Pot Meatballs & Green Beans with Mushrooms recipe! Sounds kinda fancy, but trust me, it’s super easy! Just dump a bag of frozen meatballs and a pack of frozen green beans in a skillet.

Have your children ever tried mushrooms?
I know most moms are skeptical, but you’d be surprised by the nutritional value they offer. Mushrooms are loaded with essential nutrients that kids need. They are rich in vitamin D and B12, which helps keep them energetic throughout the day. Does your child have an iron deficiency? Give them a serving of mushrooms each day to help. Mushrooms also boost immunity and contain antioxidants to help prevent sickness and disease.
