Marie Callender Saved My Dinner

Friday night. Start of the weekend.
Start of relaxation for the working Mommy.
Right?


Well that's what I thought.
I went to my Christmas party for work during the day.
Stuffed myself on some sort of chicken and appetizers.
The 18yo decided to "head out" before I got home.
That left me the 5yo & myself to worry about for dinner.
Right?


Not so much.
Unexpectedly the Daddy came home.
I had taken nothing out of the freezer.
Mother Hubbard had nothing on me as far as cupboards being bare.


Sadly, the daddy didn't understand why there was no food.
I offered him a pb&j sandwhich.
After all his son was eating it.


He shook his head no.
Told me he wanted something warm & comforting after working outside all week & living on take out.


So my mommy super powers remembered I had 2 Marie Callender's Chicken Pot Pies in the freezer.
Ta~da!
Dinner.

The nice thing about Marie Callender's Pot Pies is that you can microwave them.
Hello!
I asked him if he wanted microwave or oven preparation, because I'm nice like that.
It takes approximately 60 minutes in the oven and only 10 minutes in the microwave.

Mr. I Can't Wait opted for the microwave.
Good choice!

I popped one in, along with some biscuits in the oven.

10 minutes later....dinner was served. (I popped mine in after his...we wouldn't want the Daddy to wait!)

Both of us had the chicken version.
Oh!
My!
Gosh!
Heaven in a pie.

It was so warm, comforting, good, chock full of veggies, creamy excellent taste...I wanted more but Daddy had already finished his.

Although I wanted more, it was for taste not satisfaction.
Both the Daddy & I were full after eating our pies.

I will say Daddy thought his was a bit salty.
Mine was borderline salty.
Really, that is the only negative comment I can make about the pies.

    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…
