One of my brothers took a trip to Italy during college. He was hosted by a family that he’d never met before, and was able to live with them as part of their family for a while. When he returned, he told us about how wonderful that experience was.
The meals, mainly, made such an impression on him! Because they weren’t just meals – they were events. They brought the family members together. To eat, to talk, to drink and laugh. To relax and really enjoy spending time with one another.
I loved hearing about how much fun those meals were for my brother and have tried to embrace a little of that spirit in some of our meals at home.
After the kids have gone to bed, my husband and I will eat dinner out on the back deck. I’ll have a few candles lit, have wine poured and a delicious meal ready to enjoy.
When it’s just the two of us having dinner together, it’s easy to talk and catch up on what’s been going on in our lives. We enjoy having the time with each other, laughing and enjoying our meal and wine while we relax.
Bertolli makes those special date nights easy for me to put together with their awesome new line of frozen meals. They’re delicious Italian meals that are conveniently portioned for two people, so I can make the perfect meal for date night without slaving over the stove all day. I love them!
Doesn’t this look good?
We’ve tried several different Bertolli Meals-for-two so far, and will definitely be trying more in the future. They’re exactly what I want for our date nights – easy and delicious!
