(NAPSA) - Thousands of budget-conscious Americans are discovering that you can find more green in some frozen meals-and we're not just referring to your veggies.
Consumers don't need to skimp on quality to get convenient, flavorful food at a low price. A top-quality frozen dinner, lunch or breakfast costs less than eating out at a restaurant-even a fast food place-and may even cost less than creating the dish from scratch. Frozen meals also require less mealtime preparation, leaving you more time to spend with your family.
Frozen meals offer convenience and cost savings, but one brand is actually putting more 'green' in your wallet. Banquet, a company known for making familiar foods that families love, is giving away more than 16,000 redeemable cash prizes totaling $1 million from February through April 2010.
The prizes range from $10 to $100,000, and redeemable game pieces can be found inside 17 varieties of single-serve dinner meals. Consumers should look for packages that say 'Thanks a Million' on the front panel. Non-winning promotional packages include a Banquet coupon instead for other cost savings. More information, rules and deadlines can be found at www.BanquetThanksaMillion.com.
The company also offers multi-serve dinners, potpies and prepared poultry products such as fried chicken, chicken nuggets and wings. For over 50 years, Banquet has provided good-quality food for families to enjoy at a great value.
Finally, to further stretch your food dollars, the experts at ConAgra Foods, which makes Banquet meals, suggest you stock up on frozen foods. They last longer, reducing the number of trips to the grocery store, which puts the savings back into your wallet.
For example, a few frozen ingredients can help you put together a palate-pleasing meal such as this:
