Old El Paso Frozen Entree Review and Giveaway (US Only)

Are you ready for another giveaway?! I haven't had a whole lot of time to blog lately, but I'm happy to share another giveaway with you. :)

Recently I was offered the opportunity to test out one of Old El Paso's new frozen entrées and I jumped at the chance. :) We love Mexican food, and I wanted to see what these new frozen options were like. I don't always like frozen meals but thought I'd give one of these a try.

Old El Paso has eight choices in their new frozen entrée line and include burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas and fajitas. Our Wal-Mart didn't have all of the choices, but that's okay. We ended up getting the Steak Fajitas to try out.

Each entrée is marketed as a meal for two people, and I was very surprised to see how much was in the bag! Often when a dish is labeled for two people there is barely enough for two, but not with Old El Paso frozen entrées! I didn't even cook the whole bag and with a side dish of refried beans and chips, we had enough for three people! Of course if you have really big eaters, it won't stretch that far. :)

The fajita filling was super easy to cook! Just dump it in a non stick pan, turn the stove on and let it cook stirring occasionally. In just about 13 minutes, your filling will be ready. Fill your tortillas and top with cheese, sour cream, salsa, or whatever you desire and enjoy.

My parents and I enjoyed these fajitas. The flavor was good, and the meal was certainly easy to prepare. For days when you just don't have time to cook a meal from scratch, the Old El Paso frozen entrées just might fill in the gap!

Would you like to try one for yourself? They are available at many grocery stores, or you can enter on the Rafflecopter form below for a chance to win a prize pack like I received.

1 Coupon for a FREE Old El Paso Frozen Entrées of Your Choice
1 $10 Visa Gift Card

The Sparkle Box Review and Giveaway (US & CANADA)

"Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned below for free in the hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Comission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

Here we are already in the beginning of November, and Christmas is just around the corner!

I am excited to bring you a special book review and giveaway! In our ME centered society, it's so refreshing to find a children's Christmas book that turns our focus away from ourselves and helps us to focus on others. And that's just what The Sparkle Box does.

About The Sparkle Box - A Gift with the Power to Change Christmas
Sam is so excited about Christmas! He's thinking about his Christmas list, looking forward to holiday parties, and puzzling over one very mysterious gift: a sparkly box sitting on the mantel. In the midst of the festivities, Sam and his family participate in various acts of kindness to others. On Christmas morning, when Sam finally opens the Sparkle Box, he finds only slips of paper that record the family's good deeds. Sam's mom explains that the things that they've been doing are, in fact, a gift for Jesus, for Jesus said that whatever we do for those in need, we do for Him.


        Written by Jill Hardie
        Illustrated by Christine Kornacki
        Available now!
        Hardcover with jacket, 10 x 10, 32 pages, with a fold-out sparkle box included!
        ages 4 to 8

I was given the opportunity to review this book, and was eager to do so. The book itself is a nice quality hardback and has a dust jacket with a glittery silver Sparkle Box right there on the front which is sure to attract young readers. The illustrations are beautifully and realistically done, and the story itself is well written.

I was hoping this book would prove to be one I could give to my sister-in-law to use with my young niece and nephews, and I wasn't disappointed. I think they are going to enjoy The Sparkle Box this Christmas season and so will another family or two we are going to share it with!

If you're looking for a simple way to add more meaning to your Christmas celebrations, or if you just want a sweet  and simple story to remind you and your children of the many needs around us and that doing things (even little things) for others is doing them for Jesus, then I you'll want to get The Sparkle Box. This book may be marketed for young children, but it has a message for all of us and a challenge - what am I going to do for Jesus this Christmas season to bless those in need?

Author Bio
Author Jill Hardie and her family began placing a gift for Jesus under their Christmas tree as a way of bringing more meaning to the holiday.  The first time they opened His gift, the commercialism of the season melted away and they felt a profound joy and peace.  Jill hopes that The Sparkle Box will spark a new Christmas tradition, bringing light into thousands of lives. 

Illustrator Bio
At a very early age, Christine Kornacki developed a love for painting and bringing stories to life.  After receiving a BFA in illustration from the University of Hartford, her dreams of illustrating children's books began to take shape.  She spends her days painting in her studio, which adjoins a charming cafe in New Haven, Connecticut.
