In three weeks it will be our SEVEN year anniversary!!! WOO HOO. I can't believe how fast time has flown! This is a picture of us on our very first anniversary, six years ago. I can remember it as if it were yesterday. We were celebrating by going out to dinner and leaving our one month old behind with my parents. I don't think I enjoyed too much of it as I spent the whole night worrying about my baby girl...and to top it off, we got stuck in traffic because of the local parade and it took a lot longer than we expected. Of course, my daughter was fine when I finally made it back home.
Six years later and I now dream of the opportunity to get away for a quiet dinner for two, but it doesn't happen very often with 3 kids!
So, when MyBlogSpark contacted me and asked if I wanted to have my own "date night" at home and try out their Wanchai Ferry and Mararoni Grill Dinner kits it was a no brainer.
Wanchai Ferry Orange Chicken
This was my favorite meal. I was skeptical as to how this would taste from a box, but it was absolutely delicious. It was simple to make (when you don't skip a step-like rolling it in cornstarch that they provide-and yes, yours truly forgot this step :) and didn't take long at all. My husband was really impressed with this dish and I served it with some delicious egg rolls over a candlelight music-filled dinner!
Marcaroni Grill Creamy Basil Parmesan Chicken & Pasta
I don't eat out very often, but I had just eaten at Macaroni Grill a couple of weeks before I tried this one, and I have to say I was really surprised at how much the boxed dinner really did taste like it came from the restaurant (minus the wonderful waitress waiting on me hand and foot!). This is definitely a meal I would purchase for a quick dinner. Served with some fresh bread and it is just scrumptious!

Since as long as I can remember I've always enjoyed finding a good deal. Now as a homeschool mom with 3 kids and a self-employed husband, I find myself couponing and saving money as a way to "live it up" and buy finer things and do more activities with my kids! I love sharing some of my deals with you.
