Romano's Macaroni Grill - GIVEAWAY

Posted by Jeri Maxedon 2009-04-24
Living in a very rural area has it perks as far as privacy and peace. But when it comes to eating out, we have to make serious plans as it takes at least 20 minutes to get to a decent restaurant, and 45 minutes to any of my favorites. One of my favorites is Romano's Macaroni Grill. (unfortunate for my waist They have THE BEST italian food. I always love to try their new dishes as I am fairly open-minded when it comes to food, and I have NEVER been disappointed. Well, I most recently tried one of their newest dishes, the Creamy Basil Parmesan Chicken and Pasta. Want to know the best part about this dish? I ate it AT HOME! That's right! Romano's Macaroni Grill now has fantastic restaurant favorite meal kits that you can make yourself in the privacy and ease of your own home. I was super excited to try this opportunity from My Blog Spark & Romano's Macaroni Grill, but I was a little nervous about the skill and time it might take, as their restaurant dishes seem fairly difficult. Well, I was pleasantly surprised to open the kit to find a very easy experience layed out in front of me. The kit included all the necessary creams, additions, and spices that was necessary to have my restaurant experience at home. All I had to include was the chicken, and voila! Instant Romano's Macaroni Grill on my dining room table, that everyone LOVED! Now my family thinks I should cook like that every Thanks to the creators of these kits, I have found more flavors of the kits in my local grocery store, and have a new one to try tonight, the Chicken Marsala with Linguini...yummy! I do feel that I should mention that if you are feeding 4 people (like one box says it does) you should probably get 2 boxes. I have 2 small children and we all ate well, but if they were 2 teenagers or adults, then we would not have had enough. Just a

  94. I'm actually a pretty big fan of Macaroni Grill. It's one of the only chain restaurants I appreciate. (You will not find me in a Chilis or an Olive Garden, or a Red Lobster, etc. I would rather cook.) But Macaroni Grill? They have good stuff! We have a local Italian restaurant which is good, but not the same at all.
