It's Friday, and A Giveaway

** Thanks to all who entered!  This giveaway is now closed!  Comment #11 was chosen using on 11/3/09, and the winner contacted.  Watch for future giveaways!! **

Back in the days when I worked a regular, corporate job -- Fridays meant the end of the work week!  Woo Hoo!!  Now?  Between parenting and freelancing -- Fridays are just another day of the week.

I'll make this Friday a little special by running another quick giveaway!  Leave a comment from now until Monday night and I'll draw a winner Tuesday morning.  What am I giving away?  Two of Marie Callender's shelf-stable meals!

I had the chance to try four of their new meals -- Traditional Stuffing & Turkey, Garlic Herb Chicken, Classic Stroganoff and Sweet Sesame Beef -- and found them to be convenient and tasty.  Of course, they're not as tasty as a home-cooked meal, but when I'm busily trying to homeschool, meet deadlines, and feed my kids, they made a filling lunch.  My favorite of the ones sent to me was the Sweet Sesame Beef.

These meals steam the starch (noodles / rice / stuffing), then you heat up the sauce and mix the 2 together. The starches were cooked perfectly and there was enough sauce to mix together nicely. The flavor was not bland (I was worried about that!)  They weren't spicy, either -- but nicely flavored.

Would you like a couple to put in your pantry for those crazy days when you want a quick, hot meal?  Marie Callender is giving away TWO to one of my readers!  Leave a comment and let me know which 2 you would like to try.  Your choices are: Traditional Stuffing & Turkey, Garlic Herb Chicken, Classic Stroganoff and Sweet Sesame Beef

For extra entries, follow my blog and/or tweet this entry.  Leave new comments for each entry.  Comments will close Monday night at midnight, and I'll post the winner to this post Tuesday morning.

If you don't win this one, come back next week for another yummy food giveaway!!
