This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Stouffer's.
When there's a rainstorm in Los Angeles the city can basically shut down – a 20 minute drive can take over an hour.
So when I heard on the news last Friday that a late winter storm was coming our way and saw the weather looking like this in afternoon, I told my husband that instead of doing Friday night date a restaurant like planned, we should a fun date night at home and make an ordinary night a little more fun!
(For those of not from LA, this is ominous weather in our city).
I decided this would be a great night to try a new Stouffer’s Saute for Two. It’s a great gourmet meal for a couple – perfect for after a long week where you don’t have the energy to cook but still want a delicious meal.
The whole entree comes in a one bag. So simple!
To set the mood for our romantic date night at home, I set the table with our crystal wine glasses and silver chargers.
(You know, the stuff you get for wedding, but don’t use too much)
Then I decanted a bottle of our favorite cabernet sauvignon.
Then I put a Steak Gorgonzola Stouffer's Sauté on the stove. It cooked in less than 15 minutes and was so easy to make without over or under cooking it. Even a culinary novice like me couldn’t screw this up. Seriously.
It was perfectly portioned for two people.
We loved every bite! The steak, pasta, and sun-dried tomato were a perfect combo. And the creamy cheese sauce was delicious. (Warning: this was not a low calorie dinner, but it was worth it!)
We lingered at the dining room table, taking and listing to the rain fall outside, and being cozy – making an ordinary night at home extraordinary. I can’t wait to do it again!
So tell me, how do you make an ordinary night with your significant other extraordinary?
