What's in the box? Each month you receive a variety of mixes and recipes to create soups, casseroles, dips, and cheese balls. You also get a reusable shopping bag with each shipment.
Shipping: Company's Comin' ships to the US and shipping is free on a monthly subscription.
Company's Comin' was shipped in a Priority Mail box. All the mixes were enclosed in ziploc-type baggies and the casserole mixes also came in a little fabric bag. The recipes are printed right on the packaging – so no extra papers/cards to misplace! All the recipes are simple, easy to follow and only need a few common ingredients to add to the mixes.
First Look: For September, there were two casserole mixes (Mexican Casserole and Chicken Pot Pie) and two soup mixes (Confederate Chicken Enchilada Soup Mix and Grandpa Bo's Baked Potato Soup Mix). They all have simple ingredients to add to the mixes and all the recipes are pretty quick to whip up!
Mexican Casserole Mix: For this recipe, you just add 3 cups of water to the mix and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, brown 1lb of hamburger and when it's done – drain and add it plus 1 can of black beans to the prepared mix. Mix it all together, pour into an 8 x 8 dish and top with grated Monterey Jack cheese & crushed chips.
The final result was EXCELLENT. Aside from me thinking so (and maybe being partial because I made it), my 4-year old cleaned his plate and my husband went back for seconds, so that was all the proof I needed! Seriously – a great option for us – it was quick, very tasty and easy to make. What more could you ask for?
Dinner In A Jiffy: Chicken Pot Pie Casserole Mix: The next casserole was a chicken pot pie mix. This one is similar to the first in that it only calls for a few extra ingredients to add to the mix to make a great meal – chicken, veggies and crescent roll dough.
The recipe is very simple – add mix & pasta (included) to 2 1/2 cups water. Add 1 cup mixed veggies (it called for frozen but I just used the canned ones I normally put in pot pie) and 1 can of chicken and bring to a boil until the pasta is done. Pour into an 8 x 8 casserole dish, top with crescent roll dough and bake for 11-15 minutes until top is brown. Here are some pics of the process:
This was also very good – we all really liked it. It was very flavorful without having to add any extra spices (no salt, pepper, or anything – which is usually the trouble I have when doing a normal pot pie – getting the seasoning just right). The only thing I would do differently is maybe use pie crust instead of the dough – the top was good, but a bit too bread-y.. (if that makes sense)..
The Soup Mixes: I'm saving these for when it gets a little colder outside, but I wanted to show them here, too. Both of the soups came in a ziploc baggie stapled to the recipe/packaging card. The mix is listed on the front and the recipe is printed on the back. Again, the add-in ingredients are very simple and the recipes are easy to follow.
Final Thought: I was really happy with these mixes. The casseroles I made were both delicious, quick, and easy to make. Just what I need with our busy schedules. My “what's for dinner” routine usually involves opening the fridge and seeing what's there and what I can fix in 30-40 mins, so this was super easy and helped me make that decision. These are great to have on hand when you haven't had time to plan ahead or just want something delicious and easy that everyone will like. I am excited to try the soups very soon!
Company's Comin' also has an online store – so if you LOVE a particular mix – you can get more! Casseroles, soups, and cheeseballs are $10.95 each and the dips are $6.95 each. Based on the store pricing, the retail value of my box was $43.80 – so at $29.95, it's a great deal! Just use this link to check out Company's Comin.
I hope you enjoyed my guest review – stay tuned and hopefully Erin will let me review another one soon!
