Easy Summer Lunch For Hungry Teens #SuddenlySaladSummer

party time

Summertime means that my house is always full with activities. I love to listen to my girls and their friends hang out. The other day my house became ear piercing central. Mikaela and her friends decided to pierce each other’s ears. Of course they built up quite an appetite and it was lunch time.

I looked through my pantry to see what I could fix for 4 hungry teenagers.  I couldn’t find anything, but as I was deep thought about what to fix for lunch, my attention was drawn to the couch.

Gracie and Allie wanted me to make the Ranch and Bacon Suddenly Salad that I had just recently bought at our local Publix with this coupon for $.75 off of three boxes of Suddenly Salad.

Pizza and Pasta

I knew that one box of Suddenly Salad wouldn’t be enough for these hungry kids. So I decided to pair it up with a frozen pizza.  And plus when you think pasta, you know Pizza just goes with it. Just look at how nice the pasta looks with the pizza.

The kids gobbled up the pizza and pasta, even going back for second and thirds.

I am just glad that I had Suddenly Salad on hand. It  makes life a little easier. And the kids loved it. I will have to say that the Ranch Bacon is our go to for any quick parties that we need to go to or for impromptu get togethers at our house. Because I never know when I will have a house full of hungry teenagers needing to be fed this summer.
