When you have kids, it takes a lot of effort to effort to get a babysitter, plan a night out, and actually get out. Not to mention, it ends up being costly. Hubby and I like to go out, but also think we can create the mood at home and have a nice time together. Whether it’s eating a meal, renting a movie, or playing games, it’s nice to just stay in sometimes. Wanchai Ferry and Target, along with My Blog Spark helped us create a nice meal that we could enjoy together.
Creating the Mood
I think an important aspect to doing a date night at home is creating the mood. We were sent this cute setting to help make our Asian inspired meal a success, and this is how the setting looked.
Before I was even able to prepare a meal, I headed to the store to get one of Wanchai’s new frozen meals for two. I’ve used Wanchai’s boxed meals before and really like them, but this was my first experience with the frozen meals. If you have a Super Target near you, they are now available in the freezer section. I found them for just under $7.00, which means that it was about $3.50 per serving. This is much cheaper than if we were go out to dinner to get the same thing. I picked the Sweet and Spicy Shrimp since hubby and I both really like shrimp. I noted on the packaging that it only takes 14 minutes to make. Quick preparation, all the better.
When I went to prepare the meal, I decided to do a teriyaki stir fry as well to add to the mood. All in all, I spent less than 30 minutes in the kitchen and came out with a delicious meal. The Wanchai ferry meal came with Jasmine rice, vegetables, shrimp, and a sweet and spicy sauce. Below is a picture of the serving size as well as the finished product. I really liked this dish, and the shrimp was a nice size and had great flavor.
And here is the Wanchai ferry meal, along with the noodle dish that I made. We also had fortune cookies to crack at the end of the night. Mine talked about spending time and find joy with my loved ones. How appropriate.
