June Giveaway – Good Earth Bamboo Dinner Kit

Published by at 10:43 pm under Contests and Giveaways

It’s your favorite time again – our monthly giveaway! This month, we have a great package from Good Earth, a company focused on using 100% whole grain, no trans fat, no artificial flavors, no artificial preservatives, and no MSG in their packaged dinner kits. Coming to stores this summer, Good Earth dry dinner kits offer a selection of four delectable meals: Mediterranean Chicken with angel hair pasta, Spicy Citrus Glazed Shrimp with angel hair pasta, Herb Crusted Chicken with mushroom risotto and Tuscan Chicken with penne pasta. The only thing you need to do is add meat and a healthy meal is served! This actually appeals to us because when we get too busy to cook a complete dinner, this is a great shortcut that is tasty and fulfilling.

The Good Earth Bamboo Dinner Kit includes a Good Earth Mediterranean Chicken dry dinner kit, two sets of bamboo flatware, two bamboo dishes, a bamboo cutting board and a 100% recyclable grocery tote.

    I love Mexican Food and I usually have avocados on hand from my mother’s orchard. When I’m really short on time but I want something tasty and satisfying, I pull out Trader Joe’s Chicken Tortillas from my freezer. I lightly pat them with some Olive Oil & put 3 or 4 in the toaster oven and add some cheese to melt over the top.

    I make some Brown Rice, (boil in the bag) to serve on the side & whip up some delicious guacamole to top it off. I garnish with Cilantro, Tomatoes & Salsa & it’s always a winner.. Hot, Crunchy, Creamy,
    Spicy and yummy.

    When we’re short on time — or I’m just too tired to cook, we usually have frozen pizza :) *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  4. graceon 07 Jun 2010 at 3:41 am

    it’s seems like i’m chronically short on time, so i’ve come to master the art of sandwich-making. :) i also like quesadillas and tostadas and pizzas–anything quick and versatile. :)

    For us I usually put together a bowl of noodles, but I top it with shrimps, roasted pork, and chives and bean sprouts. I usually have these items in my refrigerator.

  6. Belinda @zomppaon 07 Jun 2010 at 5:05 am

    Cool giveaway!…If I’m really strapped, like Zoe – I go with the three minute dry egg noodles with two eggs (put in with 1 minute to go to let it get a little oozy), soy sauce and some chili flakes. If I’m lucky and have some bison sausage, spinach or something on hand, that goes in as well!

  8. Nicole-Lynnon 07 Jun 2010 at 6:08 am

    Oh that is adorable! Great giveaway! When we don’t cook I usually whip up a simple salad with chicken or steak and take out some frozen whole wheat rolls out of the freezer, or if I’m really feeling lazy order a pizza!

  9. Altaon 07 Jun 2010 at 6:11 am

    I try to become the genius of leftovers when I’m short on time and energy. Yesterday, I was short on energy, so I fried up some eggs and some leftover grilled sardines. I toasted 2 slices of bread, spread a little goat cheese over, topped with sardines, a fried egg, and a bit of chopped dill. Took maybe 10 minutes, and it was AWESOME! I didn’t take pictures, so I couldn’t blog about it, but it was better than I’d anticipated.
    Generally, with leftovers, I’ll do something like fry up rice, or even just heat leftover soup. I try to keep the freezer stocked with a few things just for these situations.

  10. Brandyon 07 Jun 2010 at 6:17 am

    I usually have something in the fridge/freezer that I can whip up pretty quickly. If not, then some orzo cooked in chicken broth is ALWAYS welcome in my house :)

  11. Cooking with Kaiton 07 Jun 2010 at 6:33 am

    What a wonderful giveaway. When I’m in a hurry I usually make a quick salad and there is usually minimal cleanup. :)

    I usually buy some pre made stir fry from whole foods, and a pouch of 90 second basmati rice. Healthy and quick :)

  13. StephenCon 07 Jun 2010 at 7:10 am

    My pantry always contains packages of ramen noodles which I cook from time to time (usually not using the flavor packet). They take only 3 minutes in boiling water and, after being rinsed to stop cooking and tossed with a bit of sesame oil, they have many uses (stir-frys prominent among them).

    I keep flour tortillas on hand, along with shredded cheese and usually refried beans and some kind of quick meat (canned chicken, for instance). I can whip up a mouth-watering quesadilla in about 5 minutes. :)

  19. vincent chinon 07 Jun 2010 at 8:26 am

    Take out or look for leftovers

  20. NOelle @Opera Singer in the Kitchenon 07 Jun 2010 at 8:34 am

    I subscribed to your blog at noellsky(at)gmail(dot)com.

    My favorite thing to make when in a tight bind? Spaghetti. I love using Bertolli sauces or sometimes boiling up a fresh tomato sauce is quick too, but this combined with veggies is totally satisfying! Quick comfort food.

    Trader Joes frozen food seems like you’re cooking and is our go-to quick fix :)

  23. Patyon 07 Jun 2010 at 9:45 am

    I’m a subscriber.
    We generally go through our produce drawer and make up some kind of a veggie stir fry. Add some protein from the freezer (shrimp, chicken, whatever we have on hand…) and microwave a package of Trader Joe’s frozen brown rice. Quick, easy and nutritious.

  24. B Nguyenon 07 Jun 2010 at 9:48 am

    If we’re short on time, we usually go out to eat. That’s a fantastic giveaway.

  26. junghwaon 07 Jun 2010 at 10:22 am

    when we are short on time, we rely on quick frozen meals.

  27. joyceon 07 Jun 2010 at 10:26 am

    I try to cook a large amount usually and freeze a couple portions for those short on time days!

  28. Triciaon 07 Jun 2010 at 10:35 am

    I usually have something frozen….soups, stews etc. I always cook too much and have to freeze some. Empty nest syndrome. sigh….

  29. Maryon 07 Jun 2010 at 10:52 am

    When there is no time to cook, we usually go to our favorite Thai restaurant. They have the best panang curry and tom yum soup! If time is really limited and we’re both lazy, canned soup is our go to!

  30. Sandyon 07 Jun 2010 at 11:44 am

    I either do one of two things:

    1) Take out my favorite ramen noodles (Which is a Korean brand called Shin Ramyun) and eat it with an egg and chopped scallions

    2) Cook frozen green onion pancake (Yi-Mei brand) with an egg and chopped scallions as well

    Seems like two of my favorite last minute dinners involve the key components of green onions and egg! I guess I’m a creature of habit.

  31. Kristenon 07 Jun 2010 at 11:58 am

    I love to go out or get take out, but mostly we just cook something easy at home. I have used other dinner kits and really enjoyed the results, so I look forward to trying these.

  32. Fight the Fat Foodieon 07 Jun 2010 at 12:13 pm

    I’m a subscriber already, hope it counts. We go for breakfast when we’re in a rush. I just wrote about a German pancake with apple-maple topping for just such a situation. You can see it, if interested, at

  34. Linze!on 07 Jun 2010 at 1:25 pm

    To the freezer we go for food that was made up in advance. For times when Momma doesn’t feel like cooking. It’s perfect to take something out like cheesy chicken spaghetti and just bake it in the oven at 350 degrees. That’s what’s for dinner tonite! Kids just love it too.

  36. Tracyon 07 Jun 2010 at 1:26 pm

    My short-cut to the quick-fix dinner is making the Korean tofu soup. Hearty and flavorful and fulfilling. Usually I always stock up a huge jar of red chili paste in my pantry and tofu in my fridge. So for this soup, I just open up a can of chicken broth and boil it up in my ceramic pot. The ingredients I use in this soup can be whatever vegetables I can find in my fridge. So in the pot, I would add 2 tbs of chili paste, little fish sauce for seasoning, my chopped cucumber, sliced green chili, mushrooms (whatever kind I have available at the time of cooking), white onions, scallions, and bean sprouts sometime. Let it cooks for a minute or two until all the vegetables soften, then I add in the tofu at the very end. All of this take me about 15 minutes to prepare and cook. Usually I eat this alone or sometime with white rice sprinkled with some rice seasoning (store bought).

  37. Bgabsteron 07 Jun 2010 at 1:49 pm

    Short on time: I grab some cold cut turkey from the 2nd drawer in the fridge, a few slices of cheddar cheese, two pieces of wheat bread, smother some good french’s or brown spicy mustard on the bread, add a little crispy romaine lettuce and BAM! (as Emeril would say) there you have it a healthy 3 minute meal hitting all food groups, meat, grains, protein, minimal fat, and a whole lot of good taste!

  38. Marioon 07 Jun 2010 at 2:07 pm

    I like to go to the store and get an warm already cooked turkey breast from the deli. Grab some frozen Broccoli and cheese. Once the Broccoli n cheese is out of the microwave I’ll toss in some sliced turkey. Done. Quick and easy, oh, and some fresh bread to sop up all the goodness.

  39. Karen Dotsonon 07 Jun 2010 at 2:11 pm

    Great giveaway! For me, something quick would be… to throw together a salad or eat an organic Amy’s frozen dinner.

  40. Martinaon 07 Jun 2010 at 2:16 pm

    We always have some frozen raviolis in the freezer and jared pasta sauce in the pantry. Raviolis cook fast and kids love them. Quick and delicious.

  41. Christineon 07 Jun 2010 at 2:22 pm

    We stop by the grosery store’s freezer section and pick up pot pies, burritos, chicken nuggests or mac & cheese. Then we get salad in a bag. We try to buy organic to be more healthy.

  42. Trishaon 07 Jun 2010 at 2:24 pm

    When we’re short on time — I usually cook two scramble eggs with eat with rice……

  43. Lethea Bensonon 07 Jun 2010 at 6:00 pm

    I usually do “breakfast” for dinner or order pizza=)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  44. Rachelon 07 Jun 2010 at 7:27 pm

    If we’ve got the money and we’re short on time, it’s usually frozen pizzas. If it’s too close to payday, I’ve found that grilled cheese isn’t too bad (if it’s on homemade bread, with something other than American cheese & grilled on a panini press!). That, and a cup of applesauce is usually enough!

    I am embarrassed to admit this, but when I’m too tired to do anything, I’ve opened up a can of corn and eaten straight from the can. Shame on me I know….

  46. Annette Don 07 Jun 2010 at 8:30 pm

  52. Judy Bradleyon 08 Jun 2010 at 12:29 pm

    I usually have things on hand in my pantry or fridge to throw something together quickly (more likely to have that than I am to have $$ to eat out!). Sometimes we use a frozen entree or packaged dinner, just depends on our moods. I generally keep diced tomatoes, black beans, pasta, brown rice, and other things on hand, so sometimes the last-minute meal turns out to be one of our favorites! (Also thank goodness for the microwave in case thawing is needed!)

    We frequently find ourselves looking to our old pal Trader Joe when we’re short on time (or out of fresh food items–TJ’s has some fantastic frozen food items that we couldn’t live without, especially with 4 hungry teens in our house!). You can whip up some pretty tasty dishes in short order with TJ’s diverse selection.
