Gus and I are planning a little trip to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, and we're leaving our son, Buddy, in charge of the house. Which also means he'll be in charge of making his own meals. Yes, he's 23, but I'm a little worried because let's face it, he's a guy - and if it involves more than a microwave, he's probably not going to bother. So my job is to find a microwaveable meal that he can just heat-and-eat for an easy lunch.
Enter Velveeta Skillets Singles. Microwaveable? Yes. Heat-and-eat, no fuss? Yes. Virtually no prep and no clean-up? Yes!! They're perfect for a hungry 23-year-old guy who doesn't cook, is always hungry, and
Velveeta Skillets Singles are available in four varieties: Chicken Alfredo, Lasagna with Meat Sauce, Ultimate Cheeseburger Mac, & Chicken Chili Cheese Mac. I bought all four at my local Walmart, where they were priced at $2.48 each. Most of the boxes on the shelf had instant $1-off coupons (so be sure to check for those), bringing the price down to $1.47 each! Make sure you look for the national newspaper insert coupon that was available on 7/18 for $1 off one Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles, too!
Under $2 for a quick, easy, tasty meal that takes 60 seconds to make? I think these were made with men in mind!
Buddy zeroed in on them right away when I brought them home - and asked all the usual questions. What are these? Who are they for? Can I have one? After I told him they were his, it didn't take long for him to tear into one to make his own personal feast.
How easy is it? Well, let's see: remove the cardboard, peel the top back halfway, microwave for 1 minute, then stir in the cheese packet.
