I would love to see them make lemongrass chicken.

Thanks to everyone for participating in my giveaway!


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!!!

1. Leave a comment with the answer to this question: Which Asian meal you would you also like to see as part of the Wanchai Ferry lineup and why do you need a quick and healthy meal for your family?
2. For one extra entry, please publicly follow my blog through Google Friend Connect (Left Sidebar) and leave a second comment saying that you have done so.

This giveaway will run from June 30th until July 14th at Noon Central Time. You MUST answer the question. Any comments that simply say, “I want to win!” or “Enter me” will be disqualified. I will use random.org to pick the winner. Make sure that you leave an email address so that I can contact you if you are the winner. You will have 48 hours to respond to my email, and then I will pick another winner. The winner must have a United States shipping address.

SKIL RAS900 Router Table Review Giveaway at "One Project Closer"

>> Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Most of you know that I have been steadily trying build up my own set of tools. It's not that I don't like sharing with my husband, but if I have my own tools, then (theoretically) I will always know where to find them (and can't be blamed if he can't find his). Yes, the end to the eternal... "Honey, where's the...?" questioning.

Over at one of my favorite blogs, One Project Closer they are giving away a Skill RAS900 Router table. I'm not going to steal his review, as it is very thorough, but I have to say, that one of the best features of this little table is that it folds up. Yes! Meaning, I could continue to claim my own little workspace in the garage, and yet add this great tool to my collection. I love tools that both work great and save space! Check out the giveaway, and hang around over there and read the blog. They pack a lot of useful information into their posts.

Thanks for reading!
