Enter to Win a $100 Visa Gift Card by Telling us How You Make an Ordinary Night Special

This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Stouffer's.

This giveaway has ended, thanks for entering!

When Stouffer's offered to send us a sample of their new Sautes for Two, we were kind of excited. Obviously we love to cook, but sometimes when we've got a half dozen projects going on at once, dinner time can get just a wee bit stressful. What? You want me to put down the paint brush and cook dinner?

The most stressful day of the week for us is always Friday. It's my busiest work day; I usually have to be at my desk extra early just to be able to finish work at a reasonable hour. When S gets home for work he's ready to take the weekend by storm, but I'm usually not done with work, we're both starving and it just makes getting excited for the weekend's projects a drag. So a couple of weeks ago we decided to make Friday night special (and a whole lot less stressful) by treating ourselves to Stouffer's Grilled Chicken & Asiago Tortelloni Sautes for Two.
The meal was tasty and definitely better than the cheese and crackers I usually resort to when I'm starving and just don't have the time to cook. To make things a little healthier we used about a third of the sauce, which was packaged in a separate pouch making adjusting the "sauciness" level a cinch. I topped it with a little fresh parmesan and paired it with a green salad. Delicious.

I wish I could say that we ate at the dining room table while admiring the new paint on our walls and trim, but we didn't. We sat in front of S's laptop and researched windows and basement contractors.
Some people save for years for a great vacation, we save for home improvements, so sharing a meal while checking out windows was our version of a special night.

Now it's your turn; leave us a comment telling us how you make an ordinary night extraordinary for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card from BlogHer. I promise we won't judge you if you don't use it for home improvements!

  1. We do it by finding the extraordinary within the ordinary. Laughing as we cook together. The beauty of delicious food and a shared meal. The fun of reminiscing about our days.

  6. Since we have a toddler sleeping upstairs, we don't do anything crazy. Just putting down our separate books or laptops and doing something (anything!) together makes it a special night.

  8. This is a good thing to think about because I want to make every night extraordinary! I do it by trying to do something a little special like play tennis with my husband or taking the dogs to the beach. It takes extra effort but it's so worth it!

  17. We often have champagne with our dinner at home - it adds a bit of celebration and sparkle to an otherwise ordinary day. Champagne also goes great with almost anything! Sparkling juices are another nice treat when we're not in the mood for anything alcoholic. We use fancy glasses even if we're eating our food off of paper plates.

But we work together getting it ready, enjoy eating a nice slow meal, and watch a movie and talk as we eat, and share the clean up. It is fun to cook the steak & shrimp in the hot oil, and since we do it infrequently it is special to us.....

When there are no "OMG, another puppy! Cannot contain myself!" moments, it truly is extraordinary. ;)

  63. Both of us are a bit of heath freaks, especially when it comes to food, so we spend quality time by cooking together. Our work hours are often long and unpredictable, but we still make it a point to cook together, especially on weekends, when we often prepare our meals for the week. (ummyah@hotmail.com)

  152. We make an ordinary night extraordinary with a game of Trivial Pursuit (my husband and I both love trivia and are very competitive), paired with a glass (or two!) of red wine!

  156. Any night I get to spend with my family is a special one, and to share a yummy dinner even better!

  157. We pour up some wine and play a board game. We fell in love trying to take each other down at Scrabble and other games so I think playing a game together will always be instantly special because it brings back memories of falling in love with our soul mates. Great question!

  158. I use lower lights and use candles. I also love to use fancy dinnerware and a yummy dessert!

  168. We try to make it special by putting the kids to be early and having a delicious meal alone. That gets harder to do as the kids get older, and meal creating time is getting shorter. Otherwise we eat at 10pm!

    I will definitely try these meals!

  169. Eating a piece of chocolate after my son goes to bed(that way I don't have to share!)

  183. Ordinary nights are made special by turning it into a theme party. If we are having tacos, I turn it into a fiesta with Mexican music and set a festive table. If we have Chinese, I put on some Asian music and we use chopsticks. The kids love it.

  185. Actually sitting down together at the table to eat is making a regular night special, since it takes real planning to be home together at the same time!

  190. A special night is when we can crawl in bed and snuggle before 11pm and have some alone time. Doesn't matter if we are watching a movie or just talking. Those moments together make it special.

  196. We make meals special by sitting at the table and talking about our day. We have two young children so it is hard to have a romantic meal at home.
