Since being married to my husband, I’ve learned many important lessons, but there is one that seems to be one of the most valuable.
Always make time for each other.
It’s been written about in countless magazine articles and relationship books, urging parents to find time in their busy schedules to “date” each other. However, this can be easier said than done when you have a family. There are also times when we’ve both worked a long work week and didn’t feel like leaving the house. Our “date night in” usually translated into “Netflix and Pajamas” night. It was definitely time to get more creative.
But how can you keep the romance alive when you’re not able to get out of the house and go on a date together?
HelloFresh is an option that I can appreciate; we were able to create incredible restaurant quality meals within our own home.
We made three, delicious meal in one week:
– Meatloaf Balsamico with Sweet Potato Mash and Green Beans
– Hoisin-Marinated Rib-Eye Steak with Bok Choy, Scallion Pesto, and Mashed Potatoes
– Presto Pesto Panko Chicken with Roasted Potatoes and Green Salad
Neither of us is a gourmet chef, so we were a little skeptical that we’d be able to create a meal that would compete with our favorite restaurant dishes. But, don’t let these meal kits fool you! We were amazed at what we created with a little guidance from HelloFresh.
As we unpacked our first meal kit, Meatloaf Balsamico, I noticed that all of the ingredients were pre-measured and the kit included a step-by-step recipe with easy to follow instructions and pictures. It also came with a super cute apron!
After our son went to bed, we turned on some soothing music, and got ready to cook together. The instructions made the recipe so easy to follow; we took turns and helped each other with each step. We could already anticipate how delicious dinner was going to be when we could smell the wonderful aromas coming from our oven as everything cooked. The Meatloaf Balsamico was our favorite meal, I highly recommend it. We savored every single bite, it was so delicious!
The Presto Pesto Panko Chicken cured my craving for comfort food! This crunchy, flavorful chicken with roasted potatoes definitely made me want to do a happy dance! This was recipe was a cinch to prepare and so satisfying to eat.
The Hoisin Marinated Rib-Eye Steak was the most time consuming, but the quality of the meal was well-worth it! A juicy steak with rich Asian flavors and paired with buttery mashed potatoes.
I greatly appreciate that HelloFresh recognizes quality and sends only the freshest ingredients. Every step is laid out in an easy format to read and understand. It’s fun and easy to prepare, and you’ll be thoroughly impressed with the results – even if you don’t have the skills of a gourmet chef.
Have fun and enjoy making a wonderful, unique meal with your spouse! We were actually shocked how relaxing and rewarding preparing a HelloFresh meal together could be. We found this to be exactly what we needed! A unique and fun way to spend time together for a Date Night In!
