Wan Chai Ferry Dinner Kits June 1, 2010

I like to eat…but I don’t cook well, nor do I really like to cook. It was slightly disappointing to think that I’m an anomaly because I’m stay-at-home-mom but I really don’t like cooking. I cook because we have to eat and stay on a budget. Perhaps even more of a let-down is that I’m Asian, and I don’t know how to prepare Asian dishes! But tonight, we had good Chinese food; and on a fluke, I made this one night for company, and almost fooled them that I made it from scratch!

Anyways, they are the Wan Chai Ferry Dinner Kits. It’s on sale at Meijer this week, and if you click  here (and you might find more that you can use!) you can get a coupon to make it a great deal (should cost you about $2). They have a few varieties like Sweet & Sour, Cashew, Kung Pao, Spicy Garlic, and Orange Chicken. The kit includes Jasmine rice, the sauce, and directions; all you need is to add the meat. Makes a great meal. We’re going to print out our coupons; only 2 coupons will print from a computer, so if you have another computer or laptop, you can print more! (Obviously, don’t photocopy because they would be like plagiarism and stealing.)

I love shopping at Meijer! They have great deals, and my husband loves that they are still a family-run business, not selling public stock like WalMart. Anyways, I’m going to list some of the deals that have made it on my grocery list and link you to more great finds there!

I’ve already made one trip to Meijer, but will be returning later on this week for more!
