Macaroni Grill at Home + Giveaway

It’s official. Ryan has left on his bachelor party cruise. 

As those of you who follow me on Twitter already know… 

Update on the Cruise Adventure

Since I don’t have the internet on my phone, please enjoy this grainy picture I took of the picture text message I received of my handsomely adorned fiancé. 🙂 

Incoming Alert!

I just about died laughing when I saw that! 

I talked with his cousin who said he basically raided Spencer’s and bought a bunch of bachelorette party gear for them to sport throughout the cruise. I love it! 


With my usual dinner date Bahamas-bound, I was on my own for dinner tonight. 

Well, not quite all alone… 

"What Am I? Chopped Liver?"

Since I did have one guest, I decided to reach into the freezer to make a romantic meal for two. 

Macaroni Grill Basil Parmesan Chicken

I received a sample of the basil parmesan chicken Macaroni Grill frozen meal for two through My Blog Spark a week or so ago, and since I was in the mood for a fast dinner this evening, I figured I’d give this meal a go! 

The pasta dish cooked up within 15 minutes. 

Though it called for the addition of a quarter cup of milk, I substituted a half of a cup of fat-free cottage cheese since I didn’t have any milk on hand. I figured worst case scenario it would turn out cheesier, and that wouldn’t exactly be an awful thing. 😉 

Along with the frozen pasta meal, I also received a large, white ceramic serving bowl to serve the pasta, which I loved! 

Flavorful Dish

Though I’m not huge on frozen dinners, this one tasted really good. The sauce was creamy (apparently the cottage cheese was a good substitute!) and very flavorful. 

Noodles + Veggies + Sauce + Cheese

Bite of Flava!

I definitely ate this meal straight out of the serving bowl. 

Now it’s your turn to give this meal a try. 

One of you will win your own sample of a Macaroni Grill frozen meal!
