Wanchai Ferry Yumminess!

A few weeks ago, I had an opportunity I rarely have-- I got to try the new Wanchai Ferry frozen meals. As part of the My BlogSpark program, I was able to sample the Orange Chicken variety. Now, I have to say... we do not eat many frozen meals around here (with the notable exception of when I was pregnant- then, convenience reigns as I battle all-day sickness that lands me in the hospital). I love to cook, and I love to cook with fresh ingredients, from scratch. One of the perks of being a stay-at-home mom (and, honestly, one of the responsibilities in my opinion) is cooking homemade meals for my family.

Anyway, the point of all this is... I may very well not have ever tried the Wanchai Ferry meals had it not been for this Spark. But I'm so glad I did!

One busy night I had managed to feed all three children and had them tucked away to bed by 7:30 pm. And then I realized-- oh, yeah, WE'RE supposed to eat too! I was happy to have that Wanchai Ferry meal tucked in the freezer!

It cooked up in about 15 minutes and what I loved the most was that you brown the (fully-cooked) chicken in the pan for a bit before adding the other ingredients. This keeps it from getting soggy and makes the meal taste a lot more like a good take-out might.

Even more fun- I had received these cute bowls, chopsticks, and place mats along with the meal. All of a sudden a crazy evening morphed into a fun date night!

I have to say I enjoyed this meal even more than I expected to. I think you will too!

I'm excited to be able to offer one of my readers a Wanchai Ferry prize pack that will include two Asian inspired rice bowls, chopsticks, and bamboo placemats along with two coupons for free Wanchai Ferry frozen meals! (Each meal serves two people- probably not two super hungry people, but it was plenty of food for my hubby and me!)
