Hey guys!! It’s back to school time and that means at night we are all running around like crazy packing lunches, signing permission slips, doing bathtime, last minute homework assignments, it can get a little chaotic!  I always am on the lookout for easy dinners that can please the whole family and my wallet but are quick to make.

This is why I love Harris Teeter, they are one of my favorite grocery stores.  Besides their amazing selection on groceries, and their subs, salad bar, oh and the asian bar and fruit bar, and we can’t forget about their killer fresh pizza, they also have an amazing selection of Private Label items that are priced lower than the other grocer’s private label items and the quality is so outstanding!!

I always fill my cart lots of Harris Teeter Private Label items that help to keep my pantry stocked without breaking the bank which is a good thing when I have two growing boys and a hungry husband.

I am always thrilled with everything I get there but if for any reason you aren’t they’ve got you covered! If you are not satisfied with a private label brand for any reason, you can return your item to the store and Harris Teeter will refund your money as well as replace the item with a like item of your choice (restrictions apply).

Now let me show you how I create a dinner that can feed a crowd, everyone loves, can be made in minutes and is under $15 for the whole thing thanks to the fact that I can make the whole dish only using Private Label products.

My Chicken Queso Mac & Cheese is a weeknight staple in our house and it feeds us all with plenty of leftovers for lunches.  Not only is this meal delicious, fast and easy on my wallet but it can also be made in one pot!!  Yes!!! More money in my pocket, more time on my clock and less dishes in my sink!
