Enrollment period is nearing its end, moms are in the middle of shopping for school supplies, and school is about to start in a few weeks. Its back-to-school crunch time again and home kitchens need to be prepped for dishing out nutritious and great tasting school meals or baon.
Last year, we featured some ready to eat items from the grocery as school snack options. This year we will be adding a few home-cooked snacks in our list of preferred baon. Our game plan menu for the week includes homemade burgers, ham and cheese waffle, oven-toaster carrot cake , banana fritters, and crispy coated chicken fingers. These are easy to prepare and filling home-cooked items that are sure to keep the kids energized and well nourished while in school. And when it comes to preparing flavorful home-cooked meals, a dash of Ajinomoto can give your food lots of flavor.
Ajinomoto is a known brand of MSG or monosodium glutamate that is widely used as a food flavor enhancer. There were some controversies about its safety and possible ill effects on one’s health but the research done on its safety and efficacy has proven otherwise and it has been included in the list of GRAS, Generally Recognized as Safe, ingredients approved by the US FDA or United States Food and Drug Administration. However, just like in everything else the key to good health is in moderation. Over the years, the Ajinomoto brand has given us with more products that make it easy for those with limited cooking skills to dish out flavorful meals for the family. There’s the classic Ajinomoto seasoning that can be added to just about any dish, Aji Ginisa Mix for stir-fry and sautéed dishes, and different breading mix for tasty and crispy fried dishes.
As a back-to-school treat for all you busy and hardworking moms, FoodieMomster will be sharing a bundle of Aji Flavors to our lucky reader. Preparing meals for the kids should be a cinch with Ajinomoto Umami Seasoning, Tasty Boy Breading Mix, Crispy Fry Breading Mix, Aji Shio Pepper, Aji Ginisa Mix, Lee Kum Kee Oyster Sauce, and Lee Kum Kee Chili Garlic Sauce.
