I have a confession to make – I am one of those moms who has a deep desire to make every party Pinterest-worthy. It’s such a problem that after having two boys born in March, my first thought upon trying for #3 was that I needed to time the delivery so that the baby did not have another spring birthday.
Totally, not normal, I know.
I start dreaming about the boys’ birthdays three or four months ahead of time. I choose a theme, I start gathering decorations and supplies, I start planning the menu.
Oh, the menu. When it comes to party food, I dream big. Everything is impeccably decorated to match the theme, and I spend the two or three days leading up to the event cooking up a storm. Cakes, hand-breaded nuggets…all made with love. All made with so much effort that by the time the party comes around, I am so exhausted from being in the kitchen that I can barely enjoy the festivities.
After the baby’s first birthday this winter, I realized something had to change with my party prepping routine or the parts I love about party planning (the décor, the activities, the favors) will get lost in the stress of food prep. So, when POPSUGAR Select asked if I knew someone who needed a KFC “nuggetvention”, I realized I DID know someone who needed a kick start to change her view on nuggets. I actually knew her pretty well.
Why was I spending all of this time preparing food in advance, when I could easily create a party table that had KFC Popcorn Nuggets as the star? Theses nuggets have 100% white meat chicken that is not pressed or formed and they are extra crispy. As a busy mom, I can free up some of the time I would have spent cooking and spend more time with my kids – enjoying the fun parts of celebrating their birthdays. But, no need to wait for your child’s next birthday to celebrate.
Popcorn Nuggets from KFC are easy to grab for your family on the go!
