Many thanks to Birds Eye for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging me to make bold veggies for my family without sacrificing precious time to spend with them!
My kids are somewhat on the rare side. They LOVE veggies. However, they do complain when I make plain vegetables for sides. I picked up some of Birds Eye Flavor Full frozen vegetables to appease their request for flavored vegetable sides. I typically steam all of our vegetables, but since the colder months are upon us and fresh produce isn't too reliable, my go-to is Birds Eye Steamfresh frozen veggies - and I definitely stock up on them. It is incredibly convenient for me to just grab a side from the freezer and place it in the microwave while I finish up making dinner - especially on Mondays when I grocery shop, volunteer at Girl Scouts after school until 4:45, and rush home to fix dinner because Nick and Matthew leave for Boy Scouts at 6:45. I have been making a lot of one pot or crockpot meals on Mondays and I love having a quick veggie side dish, like the Birds Eye Flavor Full veggies, on hand and ready to go. There are eight different varieties to try. We started out with Buffalo Cauliflower and Ranch Broccoli. We were having a one pot pasta dish and I knew I would not get any complaints with the spicy side, so we tried that one first.
Matthew and Cami were happy to see that I was making a flavored veggie, but I think Nick was even more excited than they were. He lives for buffalo-flavored anything. We have a hard time finding buffalo foods that don't have blue cheese or ranch with them - which Nick would not touch with a ten foot pole. I will eat ranch, but I prefer my spicy foods to be spicy and not have ranch with it. The Birds Eye Flavor Full
Buffalo Cauliflower does not, I repeat, DOES NOT, have any cool aspect to it. It is definitely a side for spicy food lovers. And it was perfection. It was spicy, but not too overwhelming for the kids and it had very bold buffalo flavor to it. A lot of times spiciness takes over and it won't have any flavor to it, just heat. This was not the case. We were very impressed with the buffalo cauliflower and will most definitely make it a regular side at our dinner table.

Cami especially loved the Flavor Full Buffalo Cauliflower. She is my slow eater who doesn't eat large quantities of really anything. After she finished her pasta and first round of cauliflower, she asked if she could eat the rest of what was left of the cauliflower! She literally grabbed the bowl it was in and chowed down. That is definitely a win in this mom's book!
