_________________________________________________________________


Let’s be honest, we can all use a little help now and then. It seems like the days are getting shorter and our lives are getting busier. Wanchai Ferry has answered our cries for help with their frozen Asian entrées. I was sent a newest frozen entrée, “Beef and Broccoli” to try out. It’s ready to serve in 14 minutes, so right off the bat, I was pretty excited. Wanchai Ferry Beef & Broccoli comes with tender beef strips, and an assortment of Asian-style vegetables, including broccoli florets, red peppers and water chestnuts.

Tonight was the night to try out this quick dinner solution. My husband and I both got a rather late start this morning, and then I had to run errands, so by the time we were both home, neither of us were really in the mood to cook. Our stomachs, on the other hand, were in the mood to be fed. Into the freezer I dove (well, reached) and pulled out my free sample of the Wanchai Ferry Beef with Broccoli. My husband’s first comment was, “Let’s cook up some Jasmine rice to go with it.” “Aha”, I replied, “it’s already in there.” Score one for Wanchai. The next question was as to whether we had to microwave it or heat it up in a pan. According to the directions, the answer is both. The meat and vegetables are cooked up in a skillet, and a separate package of rice is heated in the microwave.

My husband and I like to frequent a national Chinese food chain and so we have a fairly good opinion as to what we like. Overall, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by this easy to fix meal. The packaging says that it serves two and that is just about right. A little more might have been nice, as we have hearty appetites, but it certainly was enough food for two average adults. This was particularly appealing for me, as we don’t have children, so we don’t need big batches of food that end up as leftovers going bad in our refrigerator. As for the nutritional content of the dinner, both my husband and I have made a commitment to eat healthier, so I took a good long look at the packaging to see what was in the meal. Right on the front of the package it states that it has no added MSG! That makes me sooo happy, as MSG tends to give me a killer headache.

You can try out this easy to prepare Asian cuisine yourself! There is a $1.60 off coupon available at http://bricks.coupons.com/bstart.asp?o=63369&ci=1&c=GM&p=OMaEZjGT. Also check out the website at http://www.wanchaiferry.com/MealTips.aspx later this summer for meal tips to enhance your Wanchai Ferry frozen entrée. You might want to try the two additional new flavors of Wanchai Ferry frozen entrées, Kung Pao Chicken and Szechuan Style Chicken, which will soon join five other delicious varieties including Orange Chicken, Shrimp Lo Mein, Spicy Garlic Chicken and Sweet & Sour Chicken. Additionally, all of the entrées have no added MSG!

Now on to the fun part… okay, eating a yummy dinner was fun for me, but I don’t know how to blog in smellavision… The folks from Blogspark and Wanchai Ferry generously sent me this free sample of their Asian meals for review. All opinions in this review are my own and not influenced by getting a free meal. They also sent me a pair of cute Chinese Tea Sets, and want to give one of my readers their own Wanchai Ferry prize pack! The prize pack will includes: one VIP coupon and two tea sets. Woo hoo! Free stuff for you too!!!

RULES:
To enter my very first Giveaway, please do the following:

Sometimes I'm in the mood for a vegetarian meal, so a Buddha's Delight or veggie lo mein would be a welcome option. I need a quick option because I work full time and have a 2 hour commute- there just isn't time at the end of the day to cook a fancy dinner.

I'd like to see sweet and sour shrimp (or any other shrimp dish!).

I'd love this for the times that my daughter has activity after activity and I'd still like for us to have something healthy (but quick) to eat!

Definitely General Tso's Chicken because it's my favorite Chinese food. My family is very busy and quick meals are sometimes really helpful in the evening so we can have quality family time together.

Anonymous July 10, 2010 at 9:39 PM  

Sweet & Sour Shrimp would be great.
I enjoy cooking and generally, Chinese is pretty quick. But some evenings, if work has been hectic, even Chinese is too much effort. So a good "kit" meal is very appreciated.

I would love to see Sesame Chicken added to the line. When school starts our schedules get extremely hectic. A good wholesome quick meal is hard to find, this would be great! Would love to try the Orange chicken.

Congrats on your first giveaway! I'd love to see a General Tso's Chicken variety. It's nice to have quick, easy to serve meals on hand for when I end up getting home late, it's wonderful to have something simple and fast available.

Hunan Beef would be a nice tasty addition. We need quick and healthy meals because we are always running out the door!

Though they have an Orange Chicken, I would like to see a Lemon Chicken meal. There are those days when there just don't seem to be enough hours in the day, and you want to provide a good meal though it might need to be quick also.

Elle July 14, 2010 at 12:17 AM  

I'd love to see them do a Pad Thai (you asked for Asian, not specifically Chinese!) because I'm an actress and my schedule is so erratic it's hard to eat healthy and quickly!
