Date Night with Wanchai Ferry and Macaroni Grill! *Giveaway*



I remember it like it was almost yesterday...my first date with the man who would turn out to be my husband. The butterflies in my stomach, the nervous excitement and the hope of what this new relationship could turn out to be. We went to dinner and saw a movie and then grabbed some ice cream afterwards. He brought me home and we sat in his car in my driveway for hours and talked about anything and everything.

Fast forward 11 years and we're married now with twin 5-year-old boys. Things are still great, but in a very different and hectic way. My husband Mike works two jobs and I work part-time, my kids go to school and we still try to maintain a little bit of a social life. We know we need to make time for each other as a couple, but sometimes it's just tough to make plans to go out.

That's why I'm glad for a restaurant-quality meal that I can quickly and easily prepare in the comfort of my own home. Wanchai Ferry and Macaroni Grill Dinner Kits allow my husband and I to enjoy a tasty meal together after the kids go to bed. If you're in the mood for Asian cuisine, you can choose from Wanchai Ferry's Cashew Chicken, Spicy Garlic Chicken, Kung Pao Chicken or Orange Chicken. If you're more inclined toward Italian food, the tasty selections from Macaroni Grill include Chicken Piccata and Angel Hair Pasta, Creamy Basil Parmesan Chicken & Pasta, Chicken Alfredo with Linguine, Garlic & Herb Chicken Penne and Chicken Marsala with Linguine.

I personally recommend the Macaroni Grill Creamy Basil Parmesan Chicken & Pasta. It's so good you'll think you're eating out at the restaurant and it looks really pretty on the plate. Pair it with some bread and salad and some candlelight and you have a yummy date night dinner in!
