Schwartz 2-in-1 Recipe Mixes Review (Part 5)




So the lovely people over at Schwartz  (via Mumsnet) have asked me to do a product test of these 2-in-1 Recipe Mixes for chicken. It's ideal because we LOVE chicken in this house and I'd love to try new ways of serving it to my kids that are quick and easy, and maybe even let them help!


Before I start let me say that all views and opinions in this review are my own. I have not been paid to make this review, but I have been given these 5 packets for free. 

Review 5: Garlic & herb crunchy chicken bites + cheese & chive dip

>> Product Link <<

This is the one my Hubby has been waiting for! He LOVES cheese and he LOVES dip! I hope it lives up to his expectations...

What it says on the packet:


This says it serves 4 and takes just 20 minutes to prepare. That sounds PERFECT for a busy mum with hungry kids after school. Just what we need!


Cooking:


The prep for this was (again) incredibly simple. I didn't need to buy in anything special or additional to what was already in my kitchen which is always a bonus. I was thrilled that there was enough of the topping to coat all of my chicken mini fillets, and the dip was wonderfully simple. it looked just like store bought dip!

How did it taste?


I expected my 3yo to not like this very much. He is very anti-crunch. So you can imagine my surprise when he wolfed the lot down! It was all I could do to grab a few seconds video of him eating the chicken and giving his opinion on it before it was all gone! So I think that counts as a good vote. My 5yo has loved all of these so I wasn't too worried about him and true to form he really enjoyed it. My 1yo gave it a good go too, he really enjoyed the dip and ate all of that before trying anything else. I quite like it and the Hubby had no complaints. I can see us buying this one again soon!

Kid rating: 4/5

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
