Macaroni Grill Giveaway

Most nights I try to cook dinner for fiancé so when he comes home or soon after he gets home he has a nice meal waiting for him after a long day. I am a wife in training!

Sometimes he comes home and I have created a feast for him and other days I have thrown something quick and easy together and still other days I have got nothing for him! It’s a guessing game what he will come home to every night – whether he will be fed a feast or not at all!

Whenever I go to the grocery store I always try to get a few things that I can make easily in a pinch.

Enter Romano’s Macaroni Grill frozen entrées.

I was recently sent a sample of Romano’s Macaroni Grill frozen entrée from MyBlogSpark to try out. I got to try out the new Basil Parmesan Chicken complete meal for 2.

taste3 120

I am not the biggest fan or frozen meals, but I think they are ok every once in a while. Everything in moderation, right?!

This frozen meal consisted of grilled white meat chicken, broccoli florets and tomatoes with cavatappi pasta tossed in a creamy basil parmesan sauce. All I had to do was to add a little bit of milk and then cook while stirring for 15 minutes until the vegetables were cooked and the pasta was tender.

One thing I do enjoy about frozen meals like this is that you can control some aspects of your meal. I was able to choose the milk I used and I also added a few extra fresh vegetables to the mix!

While the vegetables cooked the packaged called to cover the pan being used. Clearly I need to add a big saucepan with a lid on our wedding registry ASAP!

taste3 127

I also chopped up a little French bread to go with our feast.

taste3 124

After 15 short minutes our meal was complete!

His & Hers pasta bowls.

I added a handful of edamame to this meal and I love the pop of green in the pasta.

French bread + pasta & veggies = awesome

What Can You Get for $10 ?

What can you get for $10 bucks these days? Normally I would say not much, but my views on things like this have drastically changed since I have been frequenting Reading Terminal Market.

Remember last week when I spent $5 on some awesome goods? I didn’t think it could get much better than that.

But boy was I wrong!

DSC_1467

I went back to Reading Terminal Market again because I couldn’t bare to pay more than I have to for amazing produce.

DSC_1468

I specifically didn’t buy my usual produce for the week because I really want to make a habit to get down to Reading Terminal to get some fresh local goods at a fraction of the cost for what I would pay for the same thing at the grocery stores around me.

DSC_1470

I also really love the fact that I will be buying things more seasonally which also means they will be cheaper and fresher! It’s a Win, WIN!

DSC_1469 

And fresh for this season (Happy Fall!) means lots and lots of squash. Acorn, butternut and spaghetti squash! Oh My!

DSC_1471 

I also picked up a few new items that I will be experimenting with in the upcoming days.

 DSC_1473

Anyone have any good yucca recipes?

DSC_1474

  I feel like I am committing highway robbery. There is NO WAY I should be able to get all the amazing vegetables I got at Reading Terminal Market for the prices that I paid for them.

I got all this ->

DSC_1482

Acorn squash, red onions, kale

DSC_1483

Butternut squash, okra, yellow squash, cucumbers…

DSC_1484 

Green onions, zucchini, cauliflower, yucca…

DSC_1486

Doesn’t my little grocery pile look so pretty and green?

DSC_1487

I got 11 items of produce for under $10.

DSC_1488   

Did you just about fall over? Because I almost did when I went to check out! Let’s get a closer look at that receipt :

DSC_1492

The most I paid for an item was $1.79 (for the kale) and the least I paid for an item was $0.29 for the zucchini!

Can you believe it? Because I sure can’t! I swear I felt like a security guard was going to tackle me for stealing because there is NO way produce is that affordable anymore, but apparently if you look in the right places it is!

Where is your favorite place to get affordable produce?
