The View is great from here - Win a trip to see the View!

Thursday, February 25, 2010

I went to see The View a few months ago, and we had a ball in NYC. I can't believe I forgot to blog about it. But now that I am a The View brand Ambassator, I am revisiting that wonderful trip in my head. I don't always agree with what the ladies of the View talk about, but I have learned tolerance from watching them. They prove people from different backgrounds with differing opinions and passions can work well together. Here's a picture of my Mother in Law Arlene and I at the View in November.




Here's Sherrie looking awesome. The camera really does add weight because that girl has done wonders with her figure.

If you would like a once in a lifetime chance to see The View in NYC, there is currently a sweepstakes to win a trip. Click here for a chance to enter and you can win a trip to see a taping of The View! Thanks, Mom Central!


Say Cheese! Here's a pic I took from where I was sitting.

I am a participant in The View brand Campaign, and will receive a tote bag and other items for my reviews and promotions.

Giveaway -Wanchai Ferry Meal for Two gift pack!

Thursday, February 11, 2010

Chinese food. Let us pause for a moment. Do you remember the last time you brought home Chinese for you and your special other someone? I'm talking BEFORE kids. You know that smell, that distinctly Asian flavor that fills your house before you even open the plain brown wrapper, and expose your taste buds to the signature taste of the orient. Now, Wanchai Ferry brings this taste to you from the freezer case of your local market. Myblogspark and the people over at Wanchai Ferry have hooked me up with a GREAT giveaway so you can share not only the spectacular taste of Wanchai Ferry's new Frozen entrees for two, but get yourself some hot swag over at Target to go with your meal.

Husband and I decided to try Wanchai Ferry the other night actually, so I got the Spicy Garlic Chicken. There are three parts to creating your meal, the most difficult of which is simply browning your chicken. Then you remove the chicken, add veggies, cook them up, add the chicken back with some water, their special sauce, and cook it up for 5 minutes. Then, you microwave some jasmine rice up and serve it over that. The Rice microwaves up perfectly. Very impressive. So how did it taste.? Well, The DH's opinion was... A+! Seriously, it tastes AWESOME. For something from the freezer section, I was shocked at how spicy and delicious it tastes... and here's the surprising part... NO MSG! So my honest opinion of Wanchai Ferry Frozen meals from the freezer section is an over all A. And it comes in other flavors other than Orange chicken and Spicy Garlic Chicken. Check out the other products here. The only small complaint I had was that I had to brown up the chicken separately, but a lot of people will prefer to do that anyway. I was just a little nervous I would over-brown it, but the directions on the package were very clear and easy to follow.
