REVIEW/GIVEAWAY: Wanchai Ferry

I am SUCH a foodie.
Oh, it's bad.
If it wouldn't leaving me weighing a GAZILLION pounds,
I would eat ALL day.
The worst part of it all??
I'm NOT a picky eater!
I have only met a few foods I don't like!

(aka cottage cheese. BLECH!)
So, when I was given the opportunity to do a review and giveaway on the new Wanchai Ferry Frozen Entrees, you can bet your right arm I jumped at the chance! " Each frozen entrée has all the ingredients needed to prepare a great-tasting, complete Chinese meal for 2 in only 14 minutes! They come in five delicious flavors including Orange Chicken, Shrimp Lo Mein, Spicy Garlic Chicken, Sweet & Sour Chicken and Sweet & Spicy Shrimp. Additionally, all of the entrees have no added MSG! "

I recieved ONE package of the frozen Orange Chicken package, a coupon for another free product, and the Asian inspired meal set!( two little bowls, two bamboo placemats, and chopsticks!) All the ingredients for a great date night!
So I set out to make this wonderful meal for my husband! First of all, let me warn you... I CANNOT COOK. I once put a frozen pizza in the oven, set it for 7 HOURS instead of minutes, and walked away. Thank goodness my sister happened to be there! But, I have become pretty good at preparing frozen dishes!

This meal was a walk in the park. Anyone could make it, and it would turn out tasting like you just ordered in from a Chinese restaurant! It's also super quick to prepare! It took me probably 10-15 minutes start to finish! AND HOLY MOLY the finish! SOOO yummy! I actually got super excited the other day because I saw it on sale for $4.00 and I have a stash of $2.00 coupons at home! I'm sooo stocking up!
The only cons that I have on this product is A. portion size. It says that it should feed 2 people. I think 1 1/2 is more appropriate. While I was full from my half, my husband asked what else was for dinner! B. Make sure that you have vegetable oil! Thank goodness I had it in my cabinet or I would have had to pitch it halfway through!

Overall, Great dinner plan! I will definitely be stocking up on Wanchai Ferry Frozen Entrees!

Always have had mediocre fortune cookie fortunes. Nothing that has stuck anyways. Winning these scrumptious meals would be a great fortune though!

My best fortune was when I was first dating my boyfriend (now husband). We went out for Chinese food and my fortune said "Your life partner is closer than you think"...can you say FREAKY! We've now been together for 4 years!

My best fortune was 'you should not spend large amounts of money right now.' We really wanted to buy a new HDTV at the time. Instead, I put the $3,000 in savings.

My company was acquired a week later and a lot of lay offs happened. I ended up not being one of the layoffs, but saving money after getting that fortune meant we had savings and I didn't worry (as much) knowing that we could get by for a couple of months on our savings.
