As a new mom I have very little time during the day to myself. One thing I wasn’t prepared for about motherhood was how hard it would be to sit down and eat a meal. All my time and energy goes into taking care of my ten week old, and sometimes that means soothing a crying baby instead of fixing myself a good meal.
If a meal I’m making takes longer than five minutes, it’s just not happening. Sometimes even cooking dinner for myself and my husband is a struggle. Last night I had no time to fix a full meal, so instead I pulled out the Progresso Bistro cups and brewed Chris and I cups of soup with my Keurig!
A typical day for this new mom consists of getting up, feeding the little man, and then entertaining him throughout the day. He got his two month vaccines on Monday and ever since he’s been super clingy and fussy any time I leave the room. I love any and all excuses to cuddle, but it also makes it really difficult to take care of myself throughout the day. I never knew getting time to eat would be such a luxury!
When I first brought up the idea of brewing soup for dinner, Chris was a bit skeptical. He was really worried that the soup would taste like my morning coffee, but it didn’t! And that was the best part because I didn’t have to clean out the Keurig before brewing the soup. The less work I have to do, the better.
All we had to do was pour the packet of flavor in a coffee cup,
add the K-Cup to the coffee maker,
and hit brew!
And there you have it, a delicious and creamy cup of soup.
I love the bistro cups, and as a new mom it makes it super easy for me to not skip a meal because they’re so quick to make!
