Story time! A little while back, Mike went away for a week to visit one of his best friends.
My initial reaction was, “OMG – A WHOLE WEEK BY MYSELF?! HOW WILL I SURVIVE??” Then, my thought process (somewhat) quickly changed to, “OMG – A WHOLE WEEK TO MYSELF!!”
I mean, I knew I was going to miss my babaganoosh, but a week to myself wasn’t the worst thing either. I was getting excited! I was going to fill my calendar with events and hangouts with friends. I was going to drink white wine and have Mr. Noodles for dinner – just like I did far too often in my single days. Ha. I was going to enjoy some “me-time.” It was going to be fabulous.
While I did go out and about and do a bunch of fun stuff, like check out Medieval Times with a group of new blogger friends (more details on that coming to le blogaroo soon!) – I also stayed home and did a little at-home pampering on myself.
Sometimes you just need a night at home to rest, relax, and take care of you. You know? I waited until the very last night of my solo week to do this, but hey – better late than never. LOL
So, what exactly does one need for a night of relaxation? For me, it’s easy.
JennJenn’s Checklist For A Solo Night Of Relaxation
- Wine, duh.
- Delicious food.
- A 90s Playlist
- Cuddles with Dusty
I REALLY wanted to focus on the relaxation part, so I did not want to cook AT ALL. So when my friends at Rose’s Family Meals offered to send me over a nutritionally-balanced, delicious multi-course meal – I didn’t hesitate to take them up on the offer.
Each 4-serving meal is composed of expertly developed recipes prepared by Rose Reisman’s team of award-winning chefs, and includes a protein-packed main course, complete with good-for-you grains and vegetable-based side dishes, a fresh salad, and dessert. Just heat & eat. What could be simpler, faster, more convenient AND good-for-you?
It was so easy! Everything came already cooked and prepared – all I had to was pop the pan in when the oven was preheated. Easy peasy, lemon squeasy!
What I really liked about Rose’s Family Meals was the fact that nothing was frozen. Everything was fresh and you could taste the difference. On top of that – there was minimal waste. There was one big aluminum pan with everything that was to be heated.
As the food was heating in the oven, I poured myself a big ol’ glass of wine and had a mini dance party to some 90s music. Because, I mean – if you’re not dancing in your PJs to some old school 90’s hits – are you really living your best life?!
And now I want to give you a chance to try out Rose’s Family Meals for yourself!
I’m giving away a gift certificate for a Rose’s Family Meals for four with a main course, vegetable side, carb side, a chef’s choice salad, AND dessert!
