Wanchai Ferry & Macaroni Grill Boxed Dinner Prize Pack




CONTEST IS CLOSED.
Do you remember your first date? I can easily remember my first date with Bryan. He took me to a drive thru at a fast food restaurant and we took our food to the park for a picnic. I spent my time feeding fries to an extremely skinny cat which had crept out of the woods to see what was happening.

My Blog Spark, Macaroni Grill, and Wanchai Ferry wanted to allow me to have another date night, this time in the privacy of my own home. They sent me a package of Creamy Basil and Parmesan Chicken Mix from Macaroni Grill and a package of Wanchai Ferry Orange Chicken Mix. Also included was a $25 gift card to buy any additional supplies needed for my date night.

Unfortunately for me, my children were home when the package arrived. They announced they had been longing to try these items. My romantic date night was turned into family dinner night.
The meals included everything needed except for the meat. Because I made both dinners the same evening so the kids could taste them, I did not have enough chicken. I used beef in place of chicken for the "Orange Chicken" dinner. I think it worked just as well with the beef.

The dinners were simple to make and quick to prepare. My picky family enjoyed both meals and asked if we could have them again soon. The Creamy Basil and Parmesan Chicken had a rich creamy sauce and Orange "Beef" was not too spicy. Maybe I will be able to try one of the other varieties such as Cashew Chicken, Spicy Garlic Chicken, Orange Chicken, and Kung Pao Chicken. Or Italian favorites suc as Chicken Piccata and Angel Hair Pasta, Chicken Alfredo with Linguine, Garlic & Herb Chicken Penne, and Chicken Marsala with Linguine on a date night soon.




Buy It!
You can find Wanchai Ferry & Macaroni Grill at most major grocery stores.

Win It!

One person will receive a prize package including a box of Wanchai Ferry Orange Chicken, a box of Macaroni Grill Creamy Basil and Parmesan Chicken, and a $25 gift card to complete your date night.

The winner is #113, Mami2jcn.



Contest Rules:
1. Tell me if you would prefer to go out or stay home for date night. Please leave your email address.

Extra entries:
2. Follow me on GFC.

6. Contest is open to the US only.
7. A winner will be chosen by random.org on November 1st, 2010.

Thanks to My Blog Spark, Wachai Ferry, and Macaroni Grill for allowing me to review this package.
