Marie Callender's Review & Giveaway

Marie Callender's Bakes...sounds tasty, no?
Recently I was able to try 2 of them.
They are tauted as being more homestyle flavor and easy to make.

I chose two different ones, the Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese
&
Creamy chicken Alfredo w/ Sun Dried Tomatos.


Easy peasy to make.
You can pop them in the microwave and in under 15 minutes (including wait time) you will have a piping hot meal for 2 (or 1 if you are so inclined) or you can "bake" them in your oven in just under an hour.

The beginning of the week I had a little car trouble and did not make it home in time to make what I was going to for dinner, so I heated up the Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese in the microwave.
I got out two bowls and put some in each for me & the Cheekers.

Cheeks ate it but didn't seem thrilled with it.
He is 4 and it definitely doesn't look like the boxed yellow mac & cheese so he was a bit apprehensive.
I chowed down.
It was good, creamy albeit spicey.
I was surprised by the spice to it.
Not overly spicey but a bit of a kick.

Tonight we did the Creamy Chicken Alfredo w/ Sun Dried Tomatoes.
Loved  it.
Bow tie pasta w/ veggies in a creamy sauce.
YuMmers!
Again, under 15 minutes and dinner was on the table.
For being a frozen meal it tasted totally homemade.
I actually felt good about serving it with all the veggies in it & believe you me, there were a lot.
Cheeks wouldn't eat it.
Said he didn't like it.

I would say this would be great for older kids to share with one another for lunch
or
For a quick mid-week meal for one or two.
Little kids may be taken aback by the spice or all the veggies or the fact that it probably doesn't look like what they are used to.

I noticed at my ShopRite they were on sale for $4.99.
Not a bad value.
Good to keep on hand for a last minute, quick meal.

Now the fun part.

I have 2 coupons for "FREE" Marie Callender's Bakes.

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
