Pretty sure you’re tired of seeing my plain old eats, so I’ll let you see those first, then have you tell me what you think of another review I had Brad do for the blog!
I think I had around two servings of these while typing…
And two servings of these while waiting…
Then went for a nice 3 mile night run w/ Brad before dinner…which occurred at almost 9.30pm. (OMG MOM and DAD what would you do?!?!?!?! Hahahaha!)
Dinner was quick and simple as I needed to start getting cleaned up and readying for a really long survey day tomorrow (the one I was supposed to do last Friday, but couldn’t, because the boat broke…stupid boat): honey wheat flat out wrap (new?) with light ginger vinaigrette, quorn cutlet, spinach and tomato, with a bowl of grapes. Yummers. Kinda plain though. Oh well, was in a major hurry.
Anyhow…Like many other FoodBuzz bloggers I got my nice package of Buitoni Pasta in the mail, but unfortunately can’t eat it due to the cheese. So what better than to give it to my boy, right? Of course! Boys are bottomless pits, and suckers for free food (esp from pretty girls…like their gf’s…haha!). Enjoy the review! It’s quite funny!!!
This time around I tried some mushroom and cheese ravioli by Buitoni. Pretty exciting to get a nice free meal like this. You food bloggers have a pretty sweet gig.
We boiled em up and I paired them with a cabernet marinara sauce. Nice choice of sauce in my opinion. Little red wine flavor but nothing too strong to mask the main event.
Upon my first bite I picked up a trace of the mushroom flavor. But as I continued I seemed to come up with mostly a baked cheesy flavor. Fairly salty. There was a high ratio of pasta to stuffing. I would try to get more of the filling per bite. As I did this, even in sections with bigger chunks of mushrooms, the salty baked cheesy tastes all came together to remind me of one strong simple undeniable taste that wouldn’t leave me alone…
I didn’t want it to, but…
I thought long and hard about the delicious mushrooms buried in there…
And hey, I’m not complaining. Its not like goldfish crackers bring up horrible memories or something. I’ve eaten my fair share of them.
(Brad = fair share of goldfish consumption)
I’m a fresh outta college, easy to please type guy. Goldfish crackers are cool with me. But alas, when I get in the mood for Italian, I don’t wanna be thinking pre-k snack time. I couldn’t get around it. But enough dogging it. I’d give the meal a solid seven on a scale to ten. Unfortunately I ate the whole package (fresh outta college never turning down free food type guy) which claimed to feed two, and probably will still need to eat a good amount of sides before I’m full. Glad I got to try it. With a projected price around 5 bucks?? can’t see myself ever paying for it.
Read ya up later tomorrow night!!!
