T.G.I. FRiDAY’S Entrées for One!

This post brought to you by T.G.I. FRiDAY'S. All opinions are 100% mine.

I don't know how some of you other married folks with children can manage to do home cooking every night...but I applaud you if you can and do. However, in our household we often do "quick and easy meals" during the week since hubby both work outside of the home and our energy when return home is always on our toddler.

On some nights it's so much easier to grab something from the freezer to heat & eat.  I will be the first to admit that it can get BORING and fast!  Some nights our tastes & cravings are markedly different so I find the new line of T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “Entrées for One” to be a good solution.   So if he wants fajitas & I'm craving pasta - we can both get our fix!

When I think of T.G.I. FRiDAY’S, I automatically associate the restaurant.  During our time dating, my husband & I would often go in for lunch and always left with a great dining experience.  We do enjoy the casual dining out experience, but since it's not always practical - we can still enjoy T.G.I. FRiDAY’S style cuisine.  I've learned that this line includes nine new entrées inspired by the bold and fun flavors of the famed T.G.I. FRiDAY’S restaurants.  They include items like Sizzling Steak Fajitas & Cajun-Style Chicken Alfredo, not to mention the new varieties which will keep us from frozen food boredom.

I purchased the Prime Rib Stroganoff for the hubby and guess what? He liked it. He is very honest about tastes and not a big pasta fan. I thought I would sway him with the "Prime Rib". I don't think the portion was quite enough for his exceptionally hearty appetite but he did seem to enjoy it!  We haven't tried the many other selections yet but I have my eye on the Sesame Orange Chicken! Sounds yummy!

Wordless Wednesday: Funny Flashback

My Gourmet Guy: Let's revisit!

A while back I posted my hunky hubby in the kitchen "whipping" up some ribs, read the post My Goumet Guy.  I'll admit - I DO NOT cook often enough.
He loves me anyway.  We both work full time so we usually do quick and easy for dinner.  With a 15 month old toddler - it's just the way of the world for us right now.

I wanted to get in on the Lawry’s BzzCampaign for BzzAgent because I know that my personal chef (AKA Hubby) is a magician with Marinades!

So friends, please root for us that we get chosen to try out Lawry's marinade!  We just might share what Chef Hubby creates!

Inspired by Tiffany Noth

I honestly wish that I had more time blog more often, but it's pretty tough since I do work full time outside of the home and we are very busy keeping up with our 15 month old son.  I just had to share this post because I am feeling a whole bunch of gratitude for my marriage that I couldn't contain my desire to share.

I am thankful that my husband & I have a mutual respect for one another. Life can be hard enough without adding an unhappy household to the mix.  We both have our fair share of stressors in life and can get on each other's nerves but do our best for the sake of our family.  In preparing for marriage, our spiritual advisor (who was married before becoming a priest after his wife passed away) taught us that the best gift that we could share with our future children is to love one another.  He encouraged us to demonstrate our love and respect for one another. We have started to see that lesson in action.  When my husband gets home from work and greets me with a hug and kiss, our son runs right up to us and wants to make it a family hug.  He then gives kisses to each of us.  Again, he is only 15 months old but knows that we love each other.

I do on occasion get to read some inspiring posts.  Today, I read one written by Tiffany Noth of A Bloggy Mom.  I found it to be a great reminder and wanted to share that with you all.  Please read her post: Marriage, Wifehood, Respect.  Thank you Tiffany for reminding us all of the importance of respecting each other.  As Tiffany points out, we try to teach our children about respect - what better way than to teach by example? 

Do you have any lessons that you have learned along the way that can be useful to newly married couples?  Please share.

Husband To The Rescue, Again.

For the past few days I had been suffering with a Migraine.  Poor timing as we had a day off for Labor Day on Monday.  I spent a the majority of that day in bed.  I had to work on Tuesday which is also when the pain and nausea peaked. It's not a surprise that this put me into a Crappy Mood.  I struggled through my workday but had to bail about half way through as I was overcome by throbbing pain and severe nausea.  I was barely able to drive and about half way home I just KNEW that I was going to barf.  I scanned the car frantically for something to throw up into. Luckily I found an empty plastic bag on the floor of the passenger side. WHEW!  OK, TMI.  Back to my Hero Hubby again.  Well - I did feel a smidgen better after I hurled, but not well enough to function.  While I rested my husband took over for a defeated Mommy.  He fed and bathed our little boy.  Normally I am on bath duty and until then hubby hadn't really given our guy a bath unassisted.  Now that I know that Daddy is great at the task of bathing, I just may let him take over bath time from now on!  Headache or not.  On second thought - I'll continue with bath time...I would much rather do that then take the trash out.

Being away from home and not being able to access Driect tv Internet can sure leave you out of the loop. I went camping and didn’t get to check my e-mail for a week. I felt like I had notified everyone that I have usual contact with and let them know that I was going out of town. By the time I got back, I had two hundred and twelve e-mails! Thirty-four of the e-mails were junk and promotional mail. The other one hundred and seventy eight e-mails were ones that required – gasp—a response! It was Sunday night when I returned from camping and checked the e-mails. I was too tired and overwhelmed by the shear number of required responses that I couldn’t even start answering them that night. I went to bed and decided that I would take care of business when I went back to the office on Monday. Would you believe that it took a whole four hours to respond to everything! That’s about 1 ½ minutes per e-mail. Next time I go out of town, I will have an auto response.
