THE ROCK FATHER™ has partnered with Life of Dad and STOUFFER’S® as a paid Ambassador for the #FitKitchen promotion. As always, opinions are that of James Zahn, though sometimes influenced by his kids.
THE “WINGMAN”: Over the years, that term has meant many things to many people, often conjuring images of action – “Top Gun” fighter pilots flanked by other members of their squadron, heading into battle… or sometimes it’s that same level of back-up while vying for the attraction of another – like the silly friend in a romantic comedy. Here in Illinois (especially this close to Chicago), it’s a totally different life movie, and sometimes a good Wingman is simply an “associate” – something I can assure you that I know nothing about. No matter what the specifics, being a Wingman means being there for support, and right now I have a new Wingman here in my kitchen at Rock Father HQ – STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen Meals. Now, if you’ve been following me on Instagram (and if you’re not, it would be a lot cooler if you did), you’ve probably seen one of the #AtTheGym selfies I’ve been posting late at night over the past 18 months. I’ve been on a mission to get into better shape, and eating better is a big part of that. That’s where STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen steps-up to assist…

I need protein to fuel my body for adventure, and since each 14oz STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen meal packs at least 25g into the mix alongside veggies and complex carbs, that’s a great thing. I work at home and spend much of my day chasing two little girls around, while trying to maintain HQ, and get some gigs done that don’t pay in hugs, kisses and crayon drawings (although those are the most rewarding). I don’t always have time to make a proper meal, and a great-tasting, wholesome and satisfying meal direct from my freezer is appreciated.
And my freezer is packed – rockin’ the full assortment of bold, modern flavors that STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen has to offer…
- STEAK FAJITA in smoked red chile sauce with a mix of red & green peppers and seasoned brown rice
- OVEN ROASTED CHICKEN with diced red skin potatoes, seasoned broccoli and a savory wine sauce
- CILANTRO LIME CHICKEN white meat chicken with a black bean & corn mix, seasoned brown rice and a verde tomatillo sauce
- ROTISSERIE SEASONED TURKEY with a mix of diced red skin sweet potatoes & green beans
- MONTEREY CHICKEN with diced red skin & sweet potatoes, lightly buttered green beans with BBQ style sauce
- BOURBON STEAK with chipotle mashed sweet potatoes, seasoned broccoli & red peppers
When my “Wingman” packs me with energy, I’m ready to step into a whole new adventure… in a different movie… and sometimes, in a completely different city! I’m ready to run up a series of mighty steps to glory, my almost-six-year-old sidekick Adalyn there to share in the glory as Mommy and Little Miss Finley cheer us on!
