You all probably know by now that I dearly love spending time in my kitchen. Cooking, baking, expermenting, and, of course, eating all bring me great joy. To be honest, I look forward to making a meal each evening and I’m not typically one to rely on “freezer meals”, though I think the concept is awesome.
You know what I don’t love doing, however? Prepping veggies. Don’t get me wrong, I’m more than capable of chopping, slicing, dicing, or julienning– and I do– but I also don’t object to taking a good shortcut when one is handed to me.
And that’s how I feel about Green Giant Valley Fresh Vegetables.

Our days are busy, with school, activities, church, volunteering, and all kinds of other meetings and obligations. I honestly just don’t feel like always washing, chopping, and prepping the steamer to have some decent broccoli. So I’m grateful to have the option of having fresh, tasty steamed veggies right out of the microwave!
Recently, I went to the store to explore what different varieties Green Giant Valley Fresh had to offer and can I just tell you I was delighted to find white shoepeg corn??? I have vivid memories of the first time I ever had this variety of corn– it was when I was in junior high, staying over at my best friend’s house. It was the first kind of off-the-cob corn that I truly loved!
It took all of six minutes to steam it up while I assembled some chicken soft tacos.
And, with that, dinner hit the table.
While it is true that I was provided with a product coupon that covered the cost of my corn, I am being absolutely truthful with you all when I tell you that these steamable frozen vegetables have long been a total game-changer for me. I love being able to save some time and still eat well!
What are some of your favorite time-savers in the kitchen? Oh, and do you love shoepeg corn as much as I do?
