Baked Pasta Primavera via Unilever
I'm just wondering if my fellow mom's feel the 'need' to arrange dinner plans (either cook or order) when they go out for a night with girlfriends.
Do I plan the meals even when it's my Girls Night Out?
Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.
Usually, I do.
It's not a guilt thing...these days it's a save-money thing. I'd rather cook something ahead of time that my husband can serve to himself and the kids because I know in the end it's a lot cheaper than the pizza guy.
First, pizza around here can be expensive.
Second, the Mister can eat like a growing teenager...for that matter, the Twofer often eat like growing teens so Pizza doesn't get us very far from the 'I'm huuuungry' whine.
Unilever and Mom Select to the rescue!
For National Mom's Night Out I was the lucky recipient of a Unilever Making Life Better Family Fun Package that contained all kinds of goodies to make an easy, tasty, and filling meal for my family. This included:
- Family Fun Book with tips for easy and affordable meals
- Package of Lipton Tea (how did they know my husband LOVES homemade iced tea?)
- Lipton Beefy Onion Mix (great for burgers or meat loaf)
- Knorr Cheddar Broccoli Rice
- I Can't Believe it's Not Butter
- Bertoli Frozen Entree (can't get any easier for Chicken Parm)
My Mom's Night Out
Ironically, I did not go out on National Moms Night Out but I DID go out that Saturday night...a little too late...to celebrate my friend Allison's birthday.
My tweets from the bar and dance floor looked like this:
BTW - the old dude RAWKED
I'm sure there is photographic evidence of my unique dancing skillz (anyone remember the 'running man'?) but none of my friends are savvy enough to get those up on Twitter, etc. Facebook may be another issue.
Working on my moves,
