Date night at home with Wanchai Ferry & Macaroni Grill {giveaway}

It's always a treat to go out to dinner, don't you agree? I love great restaurant food! But it can be a hassle sometimes to get a babysitter, make sure there's nothing else on yours or your date's calendar, get ready and drive to the restaurant, then pay restaurant prices just for the chance to enjoy a great meal together.

Do you find these to be sometimes insurmountable obstacles?

Well, I have good news for you! I recently was given the chance to sample Wanchai Ferry and Romano's Macaroni Grill boxed dinners - yes, I said boxed dinners - and I was amazed at the retaurant quality of the finished product.
I used to be one of those who thought nothing delicious could come from a box. At least nothing even close to restaurant quality. But my eyes have been opened. You can get restaurant quality food from a box, if the name on that box is Wanchai Ferry or Romano's Macaroni Grill!

And so easy to make. Everything you need is included, except for the fresh ingredients required (chicken breasts, milk, butter, etc.). The preparation instructions are easy to follow and you will be amazed at your own results. Yes, you made this! The herbs and spices are perfection, the pasta and rice are quick to prepare, and the sauces are delectable. The finished product is one you will be proud to put on your table for even your most finicky eater.
If you haven't tried the boxed dinners from Wanchai Ferry and Macaroni Grill, you owe it to yourself to check them out. Need a little incentive? You can get a coupon for $1.50 off two packages of Wanchai Ferry and/or Macaroni Grill Dinner Kits here.

Need more incentive? How about a box of each and a $25 Visa gift card?

Yeah, I thought that might get your attention. :)

I haven't tried either one. Have been meaning to try the Macaroni Grill boxed dinner as we love the restaurant but only get to go when we are visiting the in-laws where there is one. The Orange Chicken sounds delicious in the Wanchai Ferry dinner.
