Delish Frozen Entree

3 Mar

So after my horror of an experience with the SmartOnes soup I was a tad worried to try my newest SmartOnes frozen entree. Even though all the frozen entrees I have tried from them have been good it’s that whole “once bitten twice shy” syndrome – if they can screw up something as simple as soup who knows what they can do to a chicken and cheese quesadilla?

Which, there you go, that was my dinner last night. ๐Ÿ™‚ Normally I don’t eat the frozen entrees for dinner, I mean come on, I am home, I can cook something better then what I can heat up from a box in my freezer…although a lot of my cooking is taking things out of the freezer and putting them in the stove, which is just a large microwave…huh…something to ponder there…

Anyways, I made the quesadillas at home cause when I bought them I thought it was 4 points for the contents of the box but it was 4 points per quesadilla and there are 2 in the box. Now sure, you might be thinking “hey there shrinking woman, why didn’t you just eat one and put the other back in the freezer, duh!” well, my response to that is “dear reader, both quesadillas are wrapped in one piece of plastic so if I put one back in the freezer it will get freezer burn because it is no longer properly protected” See how polite I am though? No “duh!” from me to you. ๐Ÿ˜‰ lol

When I realized this I decided they’d have to be eaten at home so that was my dinner yesterday. I worried they’d be stupid small and not very filling so I made a nice big serving of cooked mixed veggies and after the quesadillas were heated up I opened them and filled them with salsa. lol. Salsa is zero points (score!) and would make the meal more filling, pretty smart huh? Ok sure, a frickin monkey could have thought of it but gimme a break! lol.

Turned out the quesadillas were really yummy and a decent size! Chicken, cheese and salsa all in a tortilla…oh I think there were peppers in there too. I highly recommend them! ๐Ÿ˜€ If you really just wanted to eat one I say pair it with a salad or some veggies but if you eat both at one time, a definite meal all by themselves. ๐Ÿ™‚

On another note, I emailed SmartOnes about the soup fiasco and got an email from them saying they “apologized for any concern and disappointment caused”. They also said they’d follow up with me about compensation for the product in question but I haven’t heard anything about that yet…I know some companies if you email or write to complain about a product they will send you a coupon or something and I think that is great. I mean, if you buy a product and there is something wrong with it you should be able to get compensated for the money you spent, right?

Or maybe it’s just that we live in a society that promotes our feeling like we are entitled to compensation when something doesn’t go our way?

Either way, I kinda hope I get a coupon…lol

So today I ate:

1 Quaker Maple and Brown Sugar Oatmeal pckg = 3 points

1/2 cup tomato sauce baked beans = 3 points

1 piece toast = 1 point

1 orange = 1 point

85 grams whole wheat pasta = 5 points

1/4 cup alfredo sauceย = 1 point

cooked mixed veggies = 0 points

1 pancake = 1 point

1 Jaffa Bar = 2 points

2 digestive cookies = 2 points

1/2 tbls Nutella = 1 point

Total Points Eaten = 20 ๐Ÿ˜€


I want another nibble of something but am refraining because I am not actually hungry just nibbly and I am going out for sushi dinner tomorrow evening and meeting a friend saturday for lunch so that’s gonna be a lot of food I can’t control in a short amount of time. I know refraining from eating one or two extra points tonight probably isn’t gonna make that big of a difference but at least I am trying…I am controlling tonight what I eat because I have that ability…tomorrow and saturday? Not so much ๐Ÿ˜›
