Ian's Mac and No Cheese

I was doing my regular grocery shopping at Super Target this week and I reached into the freezer case to get an Ian's Allergen Free Fish Stick and an Ian's Allergen Free Chicken Nuggets and what did I see right next to them but this mac and no cheese. I forgot to take a picture so I nabbed this pic off their website.
Andy was with me and begged me to buy it. It looks just like the real stuff and was easy to prepare in the microwave. Andy ate it right down - he loved it. I tasted it and it was *okay* but I wasn't buying it for me, I was buying it for him.
I love that Ian's really seems to be adding to their allergen free line of items. While I still prefer making food from scratch, it is so nice to have options.
I also love that my Super Target carries many of them. My primary grocery store is still my local food co-op (Mississippi Market) but Super Target is so much cheaper on some items - Ian's being one of them.
Ian's also seems to be putting out a lot more coupons lately. You can usually find printable ones on the internet. It all helps when raising a gfcf kid.
And if you buy a lot of Ian's foods, don't forget to save the points and let your kids redeem them for fun things. You can also get points for doing all kinds of things - check out their website for more information.

My kids LOVE Ian's! And yes, while the majority of their food is cooked from scratch, it is SOOOO nice to have a chicken nugget night and know that it can just be popped into the oven for a few. Its perfect for what I call a "minimal effort" night. We all need those once in a while, right??!!

Hey Karen,

Thanks for the nice comments and the link back. Have you tried my chocolate chip pumpkin cookies? They are delish!

Have a great weekend!

In your pumpkin cookies, do you think I have to use butter or could i substitute it?

Kathi said...

Carie - you could definitely sub. I need to update some of my recipes as I am using healthier options. I have been making them using coconut oil and they turn out wonderful! I have also made them with ghee.

I have such a hard time cooking with ghee, wish I didn't!
