You know your family reads your blog when…

You get food related things for Christmouse.

I was really blessed this year, especially given that I asked for nothing. I got a whole whack of cool stuff.

Earlier this month, my sister-in-law & brother told me that I had to empty my freezer for my Christmouse present. Figuring that it would be cookie dough to use with my awesome Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer cookie cutters they gave me for my birthday, I was excited and made sure there was nothing in there this week (except for the baking I gave away that you saw last week).

Well, I didn’t anticipate the OTHER food they got me. The Designed Dinners are taking over my freezer!

They went to Designed Dinners in Whitby and made me meals! I remember going by the store with my sister-in-law, said it was a really neat concept, and she went and made me some of them to try!

The way it works is that you go in, make really great meals from scratch and take them home so that you’ll have healthy options to whip up when you’re low on time, energy, etc. It’s a healthier and tastier alternative to your Lean Cuisines.

The most exciting part? They have the POINTS value on ‘em.

The not so exciting part? I have no room in my freezer again. 

I am looking forward to trying them out and reviewing them for y’all, though.

I’m also looking forward to using the silicone bake ware my mom bought me, but thankfully have no reason to bake right now.

Hmmm...looks like a rat trap to me...

But the best thing? I had casually mentioned on twitter that I wanted something, but thought it was too late…and Jainey made it his mission to find it.

Looks like a rat trap, right? You’re probably wondering why the hell I’d want something like that. I mean, I live in an apartment. If I had a vermin issue, I should be contacting building management and getting the hell out of dodge, right?

My mouse trap cheese board and trap slicer
Well, this isn’t a trap, per se… 

IT’S A CHEESE BOARD!

AND, the trap part is a  slicer!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Best. Gift. EVER!

Oh, and spending time with my family. That was swell too :)

Jaime (Embracing Balance) said...

OMG, that is so effing cute!! Now I want one!!

I wonder how many people will go ahead and follow Jainey on twitter now...cuz you know I just did. :)

marie said...

@jaime I was wondering that myself. Maybe it will actually get him to use it more often :)

Those are some of the best gifts I have ever seen!!!

I think the cheeseboard is PERFECT for you!!!!

Nia a.k.a. Genea said...

Wow! Cool gifts!!!!

Natalie said...

The frozen dinners are awesome. The cheese board mousetrap makes me want to vomit. Growing up we had a mouse problem even the exterminators couldn't figure out. Our traps looked like yours but we always had disgusting vermin hanging off ours. *gag* There is no way I could eat cheese off of that. Even though it's impressive in some ways :D

Kimberley said...

The food was a fabulous gift. I had a horrible mouse problem in my last apartment so although I am happy for you, I can't look at your cheese tray...LOL!

Vanessa (Last Night's Leftovers) said...

Ok, the cheese board is just about the most amazing thing ever.

Lainey said...

Oooh, I'm jealous about the dinners. I would love a gift like that!

jainey said...

i'll apologize in advance....i'm still not really sure what i'm doing on twitter. but i'll try to be interesting. really. :)

That cheese thing is AWESOME!!!

We have one of those dinner things nearby and I always marvel at what a fantastic idea it is! I can't wait to hear what you thing about the various meals you get to try!

I was REALLY wondering when I saw the rat trip picture... I mean, practical gifts are good and all, but ewwww!

Then when I saw the explanation I just had to laugh. That's so clever!

Tiffany said...

Designed Dinners sounds really YUMMY! Can't wait to hear how you like them.

The Merry said...

Okay, I have to admit the cheese slicer is nifty :)

Sonya said...

Man, I live in Whitby and didn't even know that business existed! I just checked out their website. I am curious how their food tastes. I look forward to a review. I'm tempted to try them as once again this girl is going to get back on the wagon.
