VH Sauce Dinner and Family Excitement [Review]

VH Sauce Logo VH is hosting an "Excite Your Dinner Blog Tour" event and Journeys of The Zoo has been selected to participate.

It's like they knew that VH Sauces were just what The Zoo needed to spice things up in the kitchen department and that kids can never have enough educational and creative toys.


Fun and excitement for the Whole Family!

After opening up the package and doing a little dance, I got right down to business. I checked the labels. Ed has an allergy to nuts and I like to know what I'm feeding my family. If I can't pronounce it and/or don't understand why it's there then I'm not eating it. All three of the sauces passed my test.

Next up, I needed to find a recipe. While I consider myself an okay cook, I'm not one of those people that can throw something together from whatever's in the fridge without some guidance. It's like VH knew because they include a recipe and cooking instructions on the back of each of their sauces.

I followed the recipe except I replaced the broccoli for red peppers so that meant some extra liquid. In turn, I let the sauce cook longer to thicken up a bit. The kids ate it up so I'll be stocking up on this!

Butter Chicken Kids Toys

Butter Chicken with Animal Chopsticks and Playdoh.

Saturday night was another special meal which included Beef Back Rib Stirfry with Korean BBQ and Soya Sauce.

This is one of VH's new sauces so I hadn't had it before. However, from reading the label, I knew I'd love it. It's description is "tangy asian sauce with hints of sesame and ginger". Even the kids like tangy (I like to call it taste) and we put sesame seeds and ginger in everything. This dinner gives "lick the platter clean" a whole new meaning. Like the previous night, no leftovers for lunch.

VH Sauce Korean BBQ Stirfry

I could see myself putting the Korean BBQ sauce on salads and hamburgers so I stopped by VH's Facebook site, and was pleased to see that they had tons of great recipe ideas.

Be sure to check out all the possibilities for yourself!

A big thanks to Older Mommy Still Yummy for nominating us for this event. We're pleased to announce that we are passing the torch on to Elizabeth at Frugal Mom Eh! and can't wait for her to impress with her cooking skills.
