When Dinner gets Tough - $20 Visa Gift Card & Ragu Giveaway

Friday, August 12, 2011


You would think getting dinner on the table every night wouldn't be that hard to accomplish. But if your kids are in any activities, then sometimes you know your family is lucky if you're able to scrape up anything on time?

On those nights, it's so easy (and still healthy!) to have a pasta night. Just open up a jar of Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional pasta sauce, boil some water (or in our house, zucchini) and you're done. Phew!

Ragu has a lot to say about dinner time! Check out this video - entitled "When Dinner Gets Tough."



You can join in the discussion and share your 2 cents about dinner at the Ragu Mom's the Word on Dinner Community on Facebook. It's easy to get involved. You can quickly share your stories and ask questions!

But that's not all. Ragu is offering one Suburban Jungle reader the chance to win "dinner on us" by giving away a $20 Visa gift card! 

To Enter: Visit the Ragu Mom's the Word on Dinner Community on Facebook. Leave a comment on their page about how you survive when dinner get's tough. Then leave a link to that comment on this post.

Extra Entries: Leave 2 Extra Comments for sharing this contest on twitter, facebook, or your blog (2 extra entries for each share - up to 6 extra)

*This contest will end on August 26, 2011 at 9:00 PM EST. The winner will be selected by random.org and notified by email. The prize will be shipped directly from the sponsor. This contest is open to US residents 18 years of age and older. I received compensation for this post/giveaway.

Ymmy pasta idea for dinner, yes I think it's a very easy idea to make pasta for dinner, but some familis prefer to have a perfect meal for their dinner as they get togther at night.

Dinner gets tough at our house several times a week with all my children's after schools practices. I like to make a quick supper of spaghetti with garlic bread.
