What’s for dinner ? Tomato Basil Chicken

Have been trying to make new dishes lately and have been using Pinterest to find them.
It was between

Skinny chicken and broccoli Alfredo

chicken, spinach, and cannellini beans quesadillas

or tomato basil chicken.
The tomato basil chicken looked easy and not too much work. It was already 8ish so didn’t want to do too much work.
Not the best photos but here is what I made

Free food at Stop &Shop

Campbell’s GoSoup is on sale this week 2 for $4 . I had 10- $2 off coupons from my smiley360 mission so I got them completely free! ( other 6 not pictured)
Also someone left a coupon for $1 off 2 healthy harvest pasta so I grabbed it since it was 10/$10 so it was basically buy one get one free.
Do you ever leave coupon by products that you don’t need ? I do .

My First VoxBox from Influenster

As you know I am on a few sights where I receive complimentary products and give my honest opinion about them.

I love it because I get to try out products for the most part I haven’t tried yet ( sometimes even new ones) and get to share with the world.

Here is what I’ve tried out so far from the VoxBox.

So here is what was in my box.

BelVita breakfast biscuits. I had them with my green smooth and orange for breakfast. I also bought a pack and had it as a snack because I liked them so much.

There are 4 long biscuit/cookies in each pack. I had the cinnamon brown sugar which is really good but they also have blueberry, apple cinnamon, & chocolate. Great choices.

I’m always a fan of products I can put in my purse when I am on the go. When I am running around sometimes I need something to hold me over and give me enough energy until I have my next meal and these are perfect for that. Also good as a snack or if you are craving something sweet but don’t want to be bad and have candy.

Next item I tried was the Dickinson’s Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes

Vine Video – Dickinson’s Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes

I put 2 packs in my purse immediately just in case I needed to use them while out. Good thing I did because a few days later I ended up staying at a friends place. It left my skin feeling soft, smooth, moisturized , & refreshed. The smell wasn’t so great but these are natural so I could put up the smell. I;ve used witch hazel in the past ( from a bottle) but I felt like it dried my skin out and these did not, I did look on the package and saw aloe was in these,which is great. Again another item I can throw in my purse when Im on the go. I will definitely buy these because they are convenient , easy to use, your skin feels refreshed. Especially with summer around the corner and being in NYC , these are perfect!

Next was the Colgate Optic White products ( Toothbrush, Mouthwash, & toothpaste)

Colgate 360 Toothbrush: I love this toothbrush. It really does its job cleaning my teeth along with my gums, cheeks, & tongue. On the back part of the brush it has little “bumps” to clean your cheeks while brushing and to use on your tongue. There are plastic cups within the bristles , which are supposed to hold the toothpaste better and the bristles help polish and of course clean your teeth. It also has a nice handle and grip for control.

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste- Minty taste , says white teeth within one week. When I see things like that I always wonder if its true. I want to say I’m on day 3 of using this regimen and I can already see a difference. I can’t wait for the whole week ( or when I’m done with the whole tube/bottle)

Colgate Optic White Mouthwash- So the taste isn’t so great with this one. It tastes like peroxide or the product/gel on teeth whitening strips.

I do like how it foams up and I can see when I spit it out the mouthwash, its still working . Around my teeth in the cracks I see the foam ,sort of reminds me of teeth whitening strips without the strip. I believe that is the idea and I like it. I think thats why I can see results so fast because even though I spit it out, its still penetrating and whitening and cleaning.

I don’t use sweeteners so don’t have anything to compare this brand to.

I was sent a booklet that had some yummy recipes the pumpkin walnut pancakes looked delish but I’m in the middle of moving and couldn’t really make anything. I ended up giving the box to a friend for their coffee.

I did use a little in my yogurt dipping sauce for my black bean fritters instead of regular sugar. Tasted the same to me

Here is the recipe for the fritters : Black Bean Fritters

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer

Check out my vine video here  Vaseline Spray & Go Video

I was pretty excited when I saw this product in my box. I saw ads in magazines & commercials for it and was like wow I want to try that but I already bought my regular lotion. You spray on a light weight mist of lotion over your body , do a quick wipe , get dressed , and off you go.

The lotion absorbs quickly, its not greasy or sticky, & leaves skin soft and moisturized .

I also like the top nozzle twists to lock so when you are traveling you don’t have to worry about it leaking all over your clothes.

I was sent the Total Moisture , I liked that the scent wasn’t overpowering.

The only thing I would change is the price, I feel like its a bit much when I can get regular lotion for cheaper.

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Woolite review – crowdtap

20130422-144840.jpg

I only used the Woolite once so far so can’t really give a great review.

It didn’t have a strong scent which is something I look for in laundry detergent. I’m also sensitive to certain fragrances in soap, detergents, & lotions. Woolite didn’t cause a reaction which is a great thing, for me anyway.

Clothes seemed to keep their color and looked and felt clean.

Perfect for:

Your favorite pair of jeans

A vintage t-shirt

a wool sweater

or any piece of clothing you love to wear

Lunch review

I try to get different healthy choice meals every time I bring one for lunch . This time I went for the pepper fish because I was in the mood for fish and well it comes with dessert . How could I pass that up? Stop & Shop always has them on sale for $2 which is great!
The fish was flavored nicely it was over wild rice . I think the rice needed a little seasoning but tasted good if I had the fish and rice together in one bite.
The broccoli – there were a lot of stems rather than broccoli I like both but I wish it was an equal amount.
Dessert was yummy but didnt care for pieces of broccoli in it.
Might get this one again but will see what other fish meals they have first before I go back to this one
