Healthy Choice Portabella Marsala Pasta Review

Another dreary morning. I am so ready for some sun. I am also having a really hard time getting to bed before 12am. I went 10 whole minutes earlier last night. It's a start I guess. I absolutely did not want to get up yesterday. Lucas and I split the last Starbucks Via. These were just a special treat. They maybe cheaper than going to Starbucks, but they aren't cheap, besides, I can make this stuff with any coffee and even use half caf or decaf.

I also had the other half of my Pink Ribbon bagel with peanut butter and dried pineapple, along with half an apple.

This was a pretty good breakfast.

After breakfast, I worked on yesterday's post and was then rushed to finish and go on an unexpected trip to the mall. We don't go to the Concord Mills mall very often so we didn't pass on the chance. It was still fairly early when we got there, not too crowded then, but it started getting busy after twelve.

We mostly just went to look around and get out of the house. We checked out Books A Million and stopped at Auntie Anne's for one of there awesome soft pretzels.

I got the almond pretzel, slightly sweet and buttery. The pretzel snack turned into lunch.

We also went to the Corningware Store. We picked up these new drinking glasses. They are Circleware or Circleglass Windowpane glasses, simple but not plain, also easy to wash. I love that they are tapered out instead of in.

After the mall we headed over to "Tarjay" or Target. I really wish there was a Target closer, so I could go more often. I got a healthy choice dinner to go with my leftover fish & shrimp from O' Charley's. It was their Portabella Marsala Pasta.

Now I'll tell you about it. First of all this was the first frozen dinner that looks almost as good, out of the microwave, as it does on the package.

I think it has a little black pepper in it, but not too much, just enough to make it good. The sauce was very good it sort of reminded me of brown mushroom gravy, but even better. It may be because I was so hungry when I got home, but I think I would have known if it were awful anyway. I'm giving it 5 stars. I also love that Healthy Choice has a leaf symbol on their website for the vegetarian products. Have you tried this? What was your rating? How about your favorite HC dinner?

I had some semi melted DQ vanilla ice cream. I set it out to thaw a little and sort of got side tracked.

After ice cream, I watched "The Good Wife". It was on from 9-10pm, but I still didn't get to bed early. I only read for about 30 minutes. I still have 3 more books to read before the end of the year to meet my goal on GoodReads. Maybe I can get a few pages in today and get to bed earlier than last night. Happy Monday!!
