Farm Rich Review and Giveaway

Hello all!!! Thanks everyone who is continue to follow along. I'm telling you, this whole pregnancy thing can really throw a wrench in your blogging. I'm not sure if its the pregnancy though, or the 2 1/2 and 5 year old running around the house....but oh well. Its one or the other I'm sure.
Now on to the fun!

I got to review a product from the Farm Rich company. A company that I've never really purchased anything from before....and I don't think I really had any idea what they were. They have a whole line of freezer products that are like appetizers! I don't usually buy much from the freezer aisle except for my juice and the occasional frozen veggie. As soon as I went hunting for it I knew immediately what I wanted to try, the Mozzarella Sticks. But that's not all they've got - Mozzarella Bites, Pizza Slices, Mini Cheeseburgers and the list goes on and on. But, oh man, I love me some mozzarella sticks. We had a great restaurant out here on the west coast that shut down not that long ago that had the most amazing Mozzarella Sticks. 100% reall Mozzarella sticks and 0g Trans Fat and the seasoning is pretty darn amazing. And it wasn't until now that I tasted any that compared with them. I'm telling you, these were the best out of a freezer bag appetizers I've ever had. They didn't taste like freezer food at all, and I'm sure most of you know what I'm talking about. I mean, its great for convenience and ease, and who among us hasn't snuck the occasional tv dinner when making one is just out of the question. I know I have.

The first thing I noticed was that it was kind of expensive for a freezer appetizer, about $7.99. Then I realized, "oh I'm getting anywhere from 22-28 sticks in the bag, not the normal like 10 or some lame number like that." Now that was nice, bang for your buck. That was before I even had the chance to try it. I love also how the bag opens. Now that may seem silly to some people, but the location of the seal bag is really nice and less likely to break apart in the freezer or when you try to open it, thus sacrificing the continuing freshness of your food.

Now you moms out there will appreciate this. I made me a couple and they turned out amazing

There is actual cheese in these things, lol, a good portion of it. I obviously couldn't finish them all and i went to just quick and nuke them in the microwave and they still tasted good? What?! LOL! My son even gobbled a couple up, dipping them in some ketchup. All in all it was pretty successful and I'm really glad that I was able to pick these up, because I don't think I normally would have. The people at Farm Rich have also graciously have offered to give some coupons to some of my lucky readers! And if you are a coupon person this is right up your alley!

Military Friday!

Hi all! Its Friday again! Seriously? Sometimes I feel like time is crawling along like a snail, like with my pregnancy. However I think that might have more to do with the fact that I'm just totally excited and anxious to find out what I'm having. Then sometimes I feel like the days are literally flying by, and I look at my kids and they are not babies anymore. Where did the time go...and this week. Where did that go? The hubbs is uber busy so I was trying to fill my week with fun things for the kids in the hopes that it would go by fast and now that it has I'm like, "whoa! I did a good job." But one of the most favorite parts of my week is catching up and checking in my with MIlitary Gals!! So lets Fill-in, shout-out and Round 'em up!!!

If you are looking for extra support I would love for you to stop by and check out Love and Dog Tags and also stop by the Military tab up top. Thank you to Wife of a Sailor for another great fill-in!!! And stop in for the round-up at Mrs K and Captain J

1.My plans for this weekend include hanging out with my kids, some cleaning and wathing my friends baby while she and her hubby have a datenight, but I'd rather be - well, except for not being with the hubbs that's a pretty good weekend in my book!

2.I consider the Labor Day holiday the sign that summer is over. And the day you get to be on the news and get all sorts of cool stuff when you go into labor, LOL. Not that that's on my brain or anything :) Its a little too early though.

3.My favorite meal for cookouts is anything BBQ, potato salad, some beans and nice cold pepsi out of a glass bottle :) Yummy!!! And I can't think of anyone that wouldn't agree with that!

4.So far, my favorite part of summer has been so fun and exciting! We went camping, my son turned 5, ordered some school stuff to do with him this year, and possibly decided on a job and moving!! (more to come on that later)

5.When it comes to deployments, my philosophy is one day at a time. The hubbs tends to be gone quite frequently. This last time was especially hard, and I think that my son happened to be at just the right age and stage that it created a perfect storm. So one day at a time is all I can manage. I try to maintain a philosophy of "This is Life". I chose this life, I knew what it meant so it doesn't give me the right to go on and on and on and say horrible unsupportive things or cause my husband stress or grief because he feels guilty. I do however believe that I'm human and a girl and a bit emotional. So allowing myself to feel sad, cry, be mopy with a pint of Ben and Jerry's and a good movie....surrounding myself with people who encourage me, but also allow me to be sad is key. Its all about balance.

Thanks everyone and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
