Hip Hip Hurray Giveaway! FREE Bob Evans Products, up to $23.94!



A couple of months ago, I toured the new Bob Evans restaurant in Xenia, Ohio, the first build of their new restaurant concept. It has the look of a modern farmhouse (beautiful!) with all the yummy food that you expect at Bob Evans.

Today, I'm reviewing a newer product from Bob Evans, their Bob Evans Single Serving Sides. Can I just say easy + yum = winner? ;-)

My family and I sampled both the Bob Evans Singles Macaroni and Cheese and the Original Mashed Potatoes. We had the Macaroni and Cheese with dinner last Friday night:



That's my plate; my kids were too busy slurping theirs up for me to get a picture of their plates! My oldest two absolutely loved the Macaroni and Cheese; they ate all I had given them (I split one of the sides between my 8 year old and 6 year old) and asked for more. Their nerdy mom was too busy writing down what they were saying to get it for them right away!

From my 8 year old:
It's very rich and really cheesy. It's a taste sensation! (She's a big ham, that girl of mine!)

From my 6 year old:
Mmmmmmm! Goody! It feels yummy in my tummy! Can I have more? (That boy loves macaroni and cheese.)

The mashed potatoes were just as good; I can tell you that I wholeheartedly enjoyed noshing on a *cough* whole single by myself as a late night blogging snack. Talk about perfect comfort food...mmmmm.

I did find it was best to heat the Macaroni and Cheese Single Side on a small plate in my microwave as the cheese sauce gets pretty bubbly while it's heating. And the mashed potatoes fully heat in a minute but they do require a good stirring before gobbling them up serving them.

Bob Evans Single Sides (and all sorts of other yummy Bob Evans products) are available for purchase in the grocery store; to find the Bob Evans products in a store near you, click here.

We have to have green bean casserole too! My DD has asked that I make it for every holiday and her every birthday since she was 8. (She's 20 now!)

Stuffing - my mom always makes the best stuffing. I don't think Thanksgiving would be complete without it.
