Marie Callender's Delights

   When Kroger's #FreshIdeasFromTheFreezer and #MyMagazineSharing offered me a #FreeSample of Marie Callender's Delights I just couldn't choose one.  So I used my coupon on one meal and bought the other.  I opted for Baked Turkey Meatballs in a Crushed Tomato Basil Sauce  along with Baked Country Chicken with Roasted Sweet Potato  and I thoroughly enjoyed them both.  Marie Callender's is notorious for not using any artificial flavors and their meals are a great source of protein.  You can choose between microwaving or putting in your conventional oven.  Meals are low calorie between 240 -300 calories and very filling.  I prefer to #OneUpped the meals with small side salads.  Will definitely be purchasing again soon!  Anyone interested in joining Kroger's exciting program can do so here .

Idaho Contributes Loaded Potato Skins to Frozen Food Meals

 Think Idaho, everybody's favorite potato. Along with FarmRich, they have created a very appetizing frozen loaded potato skins stuffed with cheddar cheese and bacon.  I can't stress how tasty they are.  They are part of  the #FreshIdeasFromTheFreezer program put on by Kroger, in which participants get a #FreeSample and promote with #MyMagazineSharing.  I #OneUpped my dish by making angus hamburgers to go along with the potato skins.  This dish was a huge hit in my house.  For those counting calories, 2 potato's equal out to be 280 calories.  Want a part of this wonderful program?  Use this link My Magazine Sharing

Choose Kroger's #MyMagazineSharing, #FreshIdeasFromTheFreezer

Only Kroger's offers #FreeSample to try before you buy.  All my life I have not liked any type of fish until I had a chance to try dr. Praeger's Fish Taco Bites (crispy tortilla coated bites of wild caught Pollock with lime, cilantro and jalapeno).  I choose to fry them as suggested on their box.  Initially I bought them for my husband who loves fish but I wanted the chance to try them also.  I ended up buying an extra box and I am glad I did.  Much to my own surprise I loved these fish bites. The entire box only adds up to be 170 calories for a filling and delicious meal.  Thank you Kroger and dr. Praeger's.

#OneUpped my frozen meal with #FreshIdeasFromTheFreezer! #MyMagazineSharing #FreeSamp

Kroger offered me the opportunity to try multiple products for free in exchange for giving my honest review through their program at My Magazine . I made the Asian style garlic chicken by SmartMade the other night and it was just perfect. Not only was it delicious but it was filling too. I decided to make homemade bread to go along with it and it turned out to be a wonderful meal. This meal was only 220 calories.. All Smartmade products are made with real ingredients and are an excellent source of protein.

Eye Has Not Seen nor Ear Heard

                    Steven R. Musick was a typical young person with plans for his future, very much like any young adult when he had a tragic mishap.  He became comatose for five weeks after suffering from an allergic reaction from a vaccine.  It also caused his heart to stop. 
During this period of time God grants Musick a peek into Heaven.  It's profound beauty is hard for him to put into words but Steven is certain about one thing...he doesn't want to leave here.  The author confirms the verse found in the Holy Scriptures  1 Corinthians Chapter 2 verse 9 which states, '"No eye has seen, No ear has heard and no mind imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him"'.
I had a great desire to read this true account because on July 17, 2016 I suffered a heart attack and flat-lined more than twenty times.  Being in the hospital I was always close by the medical staff and they would immediately use the defibrillator to bring me back to life which would halt a near death experience.  I was very curious as to what the writer experienced.  I was given the opportunity to read in exchange for my thoughts by the Blogging for Books team.  I enjoyed this story so much that I read it several times before starting my review.  There is such encouragement and inspiration pertaining to the Heavenly home that Christ has prepared for His Children.  I highly recommend this book.

Ron Marasco's "The Dog Who Was There" will soften the Hardest Heart

                     Author Ron Marasco's "The Dog Who Was There" will soften the hardest heart.  Those who know the real unconditional love of a pet will agree this was the perfect choice for a lead character in this novel.  Barley comes from painful beginnings having no home and knowing real hunger.  Barley longs to meet the special teacher from Galilee.  Along his journey he befriends a petty criminal.  They face adversary and difficulty together but there is much hope awaiting him.  This fictional story shares the utmost joy when Barley bears witness to Jesus Christ.  This book is heart wrenching and heart warming at the same time.  I was given the wonderful opportunity to review in exchange for my thoughts.  Many will fall in love with Barley and it's a story that should be shared among generations.  I was given the ultimate opportunity to review this novel for BookLook
bloggers in exchange for my thoughts.  Very inspirational.
