I Totally Celebrated National Frozen Food Day

Did y'all know that yesterday was National Frozen Food day? I believe that one should celebrate as many food-related holidays as possible, so I hit the frozen aisle with one of the coupons that Plateful Co-Op sent me for the frozen Old El Paso entrees. I've had the chicken enchiladas before so my original plan was to try something new, but apparently I am old and set in my ways because I ended up with the same thing again! (They also make fajitas and burritos and quesadillas and beef enchiladas, so maybe I'll eventually get around to trying something different!)

 Proof that other varieties really do exist, and that I'm not too cool to whip out my phone for photos in the frozen aisle. 

Sorry, yours probably won't come with an adorable Gremlin kitten!

I'm a total cheese addict, so I add a bit of extra cheese on top when they're finished, as well as a bit of salsa. (Is adding salsa weird? Oh, well.) When they sent me the coupons for the entrees, they also sent some cute margarita glasses and I had this great idea where I was going to pick up one of those frozen margaritas in a bag, but then I totally spaced out at the grocery store and forgot the bag-o-booze. Sadness!

I would show you an "after" photo, but these mostly just look like mush after 40 minutes of baking. They're tasty mush, though! (Why is it that some of the best tasting food is the least photogenic?) I can usually get at least 3 large (for me) meals out of a box, so I know what I'm having for lunch today!

Disclosure: I was provided with information and a package of prodcts by Old El Paso® through Platefull Co-Op. I was not otherwise compensated for this post, and opinions/views are my own.

I wish they made something vegetarian like spinach and cheese enchiladas or bean and cheese burritos.

I'll have to try that someday!

I didn't know that National Frozen Food Day existed before now. However, I use Frozen Foods a lot. My family loves Old El Paso Meals all the time. The meals are fast, easy and a great price.
