Velveeta Cheesy Skillet Party Review and Giveaway

We were selected to host a House Party gathering featuring Velveeta Cheesy Skillet Dinners.  I prepared 3 of the 4 dinners and we added salad as a side dish.  I chose  Ultimate Cheeseburger Macaroni, Zesty Nacho , and Chicken and Broccoli. To save time since I knew I was going to make 3 of the dinners I pre-browned the ground beef. I used a vegetarian meat replacement for the Ultimate cheeseburger macaroni  and 2 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts for the Chicken and Broccoli.   We have 6 people for dinner and everyone was able to try each of the dishes.   While my family is spoiled (according to them) by my home cooked pasta dishes they each had a favorite. Cameron my oldest liked the zesty nacho dish while Nathan preferred the Ultimate Cheeseburger Macaroni.  My Dad liked the Chicken and Broccoli one but was open to all three of them. Mike my husband unfortunately  wasn't a fan of any of them.  I assumed the dishes would end up being salty as Velveeta tends to be salty, but they weren't.
I love the fact they are easy to fix and are essentially one dish meals.  For me as a mom I would prefer more vegetables in the dishes but that could be easily fixed by adding half a package of frozen vegetables or fresh if you have them. 
House Party events are great , everything you need is included in the box and in this case I was given a $5 Wal-mart gift card to purchase the meat with.  My local Wal-mart is not a Super Wal-mart so I saved the card and picked up the meat at Safeway on sale.  Each guest received a bright yellow Velveeta  Cheesy Skillets reusable tote bag, a magnet wipe off sheet (great for leaving notes on the refrigerator), and a coupon for $1.00 off the purchase of a Velveeta Cheesy Skillets dinner.   Since I did not have enough guests to hand out all the goodies 2 lucky readers will receive the same goodies my guests did.
The Tote is perfect for trips to the grocery store or like I’m using it today, a trip to the park with the boys.
