A great dessert to add at the end of any meal, Skippy peanut butter with dark chocolate on bananas. Yum!

Now for planning an easy meal to make for everyone. Simple side dishes with a little something extra... bacon! My kids love their mac n cheese. Boil a box of macaroni, drain and add some velveeta cheese. Next, grab some Hormel Black Label bacon. Cut the bacon up in smaller pieces, toss it into your skillet and cook on medium high until crispy.
When the bacon is done, use a slotted spoon to put the bacon on some paper towels to soak up the grease. Add the half the bacon to your mac n cheese and we'll use the rest for our next side dish.
Green bean, potato and bacon dish is another side dish that will go great with your meal. Now you can pretty much just eyeball the amount that you would want. I have about a pound and a half of fresh green beans and 5 red potatoes. Again, easy to put together and fast to clean up. Line your baking sheet with foil and then all you have to do is throw the foil away when your done. Set the oven for 375 degrees. Rinse off the green beans and break them down to bite size. Then, wash off your potatoes and chop them down to bite size too. Combine your vegetables and coat them with olive oil. Make an even layer on your baking sheet with the vegetables and add salt and pepper for taste.
I also like to add a ranch seasoning packet to the vegetables for extra flavor.
Put your baking sheet in the oven for 25 - 30 minutes. When the vegetables are done, combine the other half of bacon with the vegetables in a bowl and serve.
A big thank you goes out to the Hormel company
for all the goodies to try out!
