I am almost starting to believe that Spring is coming. After the winter here I was beginning to think I’d never see the bare ground again. But it is starting to show and I know that it’s going to be busy time around the farm very soon. Spring is kidding and planting season and that means that time will be in short supply. I’ll be looking for a quick snack to grab when a traditional lunch isn’t an option. I love something with meat, cheese and nuts because I end up satisfied and ready to face whatever is next on my chore list. I learned about the Oscar Mayer P3 Portable Protein Pack and it is the perfect solution!
I found them in the Packaged Deli section of my local Walmart. The day I went shopping they were on sale for $1 each! Talk about a #PortableProtein bargain. The cute packages are easy to pop into a purse or toss into a totebag.
I stocked up on the four varieties; applewood smoked turkey breast, slow roasted turkey breast, rotisserie seasoned chicken breast and applewood smoked ham. Each comes with a cheese selection and some nuts creating a perfect, protein packed snack. The #CollectiveBias in this household chooses the applewood smoked turkey as favorite with the ham coming in a close second.
The farm isn’t the only crazy in my life. The hubby is fire chief in our town and on call 24/7. It never fails that I’ll be making dinner and his fire radio will squawk and out he has to run. I know he’s hungry but he can’t wait for dinner – he has to GO. As he’s running out the door I give him what I can so he has something to eat but oftentimes it’s not the best option. I like knowing I have something healthy on hand that I know I can give him that will taste good and satisfy his hunger.
These are PERFECT for when he has to dash out before I can feed him. Easy to open, easy to eat and full of protein that will hold him through a long fire call. This leaves me worrying only about the fire (and if a deer or elk will run out in front of his truck on the way home) and not if he’s hungry. Since the packs were so affordable I was even able to leave a few of them at the firehouse so that they are available for the volunteers if they are hungry. Isn’t that fantastic?
I also found a way to take advantage of these tasty little packages of #MeatCheeseNuts. The last couple of days the sun has actually shown itself – I almost didn’t recognize that big yellow ball in the sky!. Pretending it was summer I took my book and a snack and let the goats loose to graze. They were so happy! I was so happy! To be completely honest, I didn’t get much reading done ’cause the goats were so entertaining to watch. I was in trouble though once I opened my meal. They had to see what I was eating; the meat and cheese weren’t up their alley but they were very interested in the almonds. With AbbyGoat in the mix I was lucky I came out with all 10 of my fingers.
Pricilla really liked them too. I was happy to share with her – she’s getting old now and she lives for treats. This was the first time she’s had almonds and she let me know that she would like them again. She kept following me around maaaaing for more even after they were all gone.
I’m excited to have learned about the Oscar Mayer P3 packs. I’m sure I’ll be using them throughout the summer. We both love to go out for trips into the woods to explore, for short drives to see new areas of this beautiful state of Montana and we are looking forward to huckleberry picking again when they come into season. The Portable Protein Packs will be a perfect solution for what to pack for these trips – light, easy and delicious. I love anything that makes my busy farm life easier and these most assuredly do that.
What do you like for a quick meal on the run?
