Date Night Prize Pack Giveaway!






Think of all the reasons why you love your favorite restaurants - yummy food, no dishes to wash, yummy food....I think you know why I like my to eat out. I try to recreate restaurant quality recipes at home, but one of the most difficult to recreate is good asian food.

Lucky for me, MyBlogSpark sent us a "Date Night" prize pack to create restaurant quality food at home. Like most of our dates, our children were right there with us. Thank goodness for dates at home!

We had the opportunity to try the Wanchai Ferry Orange Chicken box kit and the Macaroni Grill Creamy Basil box it. Both were yummy, but I have to tell you that the Wanchai Ferry Orange Chicken was amazing!

I even went out an bought a second box this week! You can get a $1.50 off coupon here.  I try to shy away from box meals because I like to think I can do it myself, but this was one really great product!

Want to try them for yourself? MyBlogSpark is giving one Suburban Jungle reader a "Date Night" Prize pack to try these tasty meals for yourself.


What's included in your "date night" prize pack:
$25 Visa Gift card to buy chicken and additional ingredients
1 Box of Wanchai Ferry Dinner Kit
1 Box of Macaroni Grill Dinner Kit

How To Enter: Leave a comment telling me what you do to keep date night special. 

Extra Entries:
5 Extra Entries for blogging about this contest
3 Extra Entries for tweeting about this contest (include @suburbanjung in your tweet, 1 extra for daily tweets)
2 Extra Entries for following @suburbanjung on twitter
2 Extra Entries for being a google friend connect follower

*This contest will end on November 12, 2010.  The winner will be selected by random.org and notified by email. MyBlogSpark, Wanchie Ferry, and Macaroni Grill provided the products, prize pack, information and giveaway prize. All opinions expressed are my own.

I always have dessert planned. MY husband is a big chocolate fanatic. As long as there's chocolate, he's a happy camper.

I have been married for 5 years, and I have three kids, and I have had ONE date night! But it was special because my MIL watched the kids, so I not only got to go out to eat with just my hubby, but I also got to avoid my MIL. I would keep a date night special by keeping it simple and low key (if I ever have another one!)

It's just the two of us, and our date nights are varied and sometimes it is just a walk together. Sometimes it is tea. Sometimes it is a dinner out, and sometimes it is a sweet treat.

I like to slip little notes under the plate for my hubby to find. :)
