Pret a Paquet

Screen Shot 2013-03-16 at 10.18.32 PMPret a Paquet helps consumers “style up their lunch” (think chevron stripes!), featuring BPA-free lunch containers (in portions recommended by a nutritionist) with coordinating, eco-friendly, reusable insulated sleeves.

The Pret a Paquet Lunch Kit is a handy lunch box that makes it easy to pack a stylish healthy, on-the-go lunch. It features compartments to separate food. The container holds enough to fill 35.2 oz./1040 ml/4.4 cups of food and includes a lid and an insulated neoprene sleeve. These are available in two patterns: Blue and black stripe and Peach chevron. It is also made with secure zipper to ensure no
spillage, and is easy to carry, clean, and dry. Best of all, you will be able to find these available exclusively at Target starting April 2013!

This lunch container works great. It helps keep your portions sized correctly. I love the sections, so that my food isn’t mixing into one big mess. It’s all very fashionable, so everybody will want to know where you got it from! Functional and pretty, what more could you want?

HoneyBaked

I have driven past HoneyBaked so many times. I just assumed that they just had ham. I don’t make ham a lot and I don’t normally have to make too many big dinners so they never really crossed my radar. However, I will be the first to admit how wrong I was.

Did you know that HoneyBaked caters? Did you know you can walk into HoneyBaked and eat lunch? Did you know that you can stop in there and get an easy and affordable meal for your family for dinner tonight? Me either! That’s one of the many things I learned the evening last week I went and got to check out HoneyBaked.

One of the many things I learned that night was that they glaze the hams right in the store. We actually got to watch them do it. (It was pretty cool.) They use a gluten free glaze and only glaze the amount of hams they will need for the day (to keep the ham fresh). Now, you can walk in and request exactly what you want too. (Though, they do a darn good job with it!).

What other products does HoneyBaked carry? They have port, beef, turkey roasts, ribs, shredded beef, and pork in barbecue sauce for sandwiches, deli sides, whole turkeys, desserts, turkey breasts, thin sliced honey bacon, and more.  I got to try a lot of it:

It was so good. Good just doesn’t describe how good it was though. It tasted homemade. The cinnamon apples literally melted in your mouth. I could easily pick this up for a holiday and pass it off that I made it at home (though it was way better than anything I could have made at home!). Little things like fresh bread delivered daily and fresh produce delivered three times a week make a difference. It makes their food all that much better than everyone else out there!

If you like their food, they have a great loyalty program too. If you buy 5 dinners, you get the 6th one for 50% off! The lunch box card is buy five lunches and get the 6th one free.

Want to try HoneyBaked now that I’ve made you hungry? You can! Here is a coupon for $10 off, so you can enjoy HoneyBaked for dinner tonight!

Chef Boyardee Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is shelly aka allysmama. Congrats!

Did you know that Chef Boyardee has new whole grain products and a new website they have just launched called Club Mum?  I didn’t either till recently.

Lead by a panel of four mom bloggers and launched by Chef Boyardee, Club Mum is a new online community for moms to share experiences, ideas and tips around how to get the “good stuff” in their kids. The website will include editorial and video content on a broad range of topics, such as getting more vegetables into kids’ diets, keeping kids active during winter weather, packing nutritious lunches and encouraging philanthropy among the whole family.

Their new whole grain product launch goes hand in hand with this.    Now, I already loved that a can of Chef Boyardee counts as a serving of vegetables.  However, the whole grain aspect just makes it all the better.  I recently tried the Whole Grain Lasagna.  I’ll be honest — I couldn’t tell the difference between the whole grain and the regular lasagna.  They tasted exactly the same!  If you like Chef Boyardee products, you will love their new whole grain products.

Since my family and I enjoyed these so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to win a Chef Boyardee Prize Pack.  In it is a lunch box and 3 of the Chef Boyardee products!  Here’s what you need to do:
