Minute Ready to Serve Multi-Grain Medley

On a scale of 1 - 10 this definitely receives a 10.

I've told you about the brown and wild rice in this product, now I'm telling you about the Multi-Grain Medley.  This little single serving cup is filled with brown rice, wheat, quinoa, rye, barley and oats.  It's fully cooked and all you have to do is heat in for 60 seconds in the microwave and it's ready.  I've eaten this with several dishes such as beef and gravy as well as by itself.  It's simply wonderful no matter how you serve or eat.  Tonight I'm having my Medley with scallops, drizzled with a white wine sauce.  Yum Yum!

Go to the Minute Ready to Serve site to find recipes.  While there check out all of their other flavors such as Chicken, Pilaf and even Spanish.

Mrs. Paul's Parchment Bake

On a scale of 1 - 10 this product gets a 20!

I'm always a bit leary of frozen fish. More often than not the fish is soft and mushy. I've learned the hard way that buying frozen fish just isn't worth it. But when Foodbuzz's Tastemakers offered to send me some free coupons just to try Mrs. Paul's newest fish Parchment Bake I decided what the heck.

The fish is enclosed in a sealed parchment bag. It bakes in the oven for a total of about 25 minutes. I will admit that when I saw this wasn't a dish I could microwave I almost lost interest but then I realized this was all I had taken with me for lunch giving me no choice but to wait the 25 minutes. So I sat down and read while my fish cooked - in the oven.

You won't believe this! It has to be some of the best frozen fish I've ever eaten! It's flaky yet firm. The one I chose to try 1st was the Classic Grilled Tilapia which I expected to be sweet and not really appealing. Again I was wrong. It had just a slight taste of sauce, not sweet but with a touch of heat - but not too much. The one flavor that I really picked up on was the taste of grilling. This fish is the best! And to top it all off - It has 80 calories and .5 g of fat! Can't beat that. Now I can't wait to try the other flavors. Next will be Garlic Butter Tilapia, and then the Roasted Garlic and then I get Lemon Pepper. Yum!
