My beloved and I have are like the biggest homebodies. Even though Orange has many dining places to offer, our idea of “spending time together” involves a really nice home cooked meal and movies. Organising a romantic dinner does not need to be elaborate nor should it happen only on the 14th of February. It could be on any weekend or after work. I think having an impromptu romantic dinner with your loved ones during work week is a good way to break the work-sleep routine.
Simplicity is the key. If you need a little help from the Recipe Base pouches and packet aisle in the supermarket to make this dinner happens, why not. Whilst the majority of sauces on the market cater for families in terms of portion size and taste, there is a new product called Just For 2 by Maggie which specifically caters for, as the name suggests, two people, costing only $1.99 per packet.
The Just For 2 range comes with 4 variety of recipe bases:
- Lemon & Thyme Chicken
- Moroccan Chicken
- Sweet & Sticky Pork
- Spicy Tomato & Red Wine Meatballs
There is no artificial colours, or flavours, as well as no added MSG. As my beloved and I are big fan of chicken, we were looking forward to try the Lemon & Thyme Chicken first – a creamy and citrusy chicken dish which contains a concoctions of flavours such as thyme, garlic, lemon and rosemary. You’ll end up with a good amount that creamy sauce that goes really well with rice. Also, if you like the taste and scent of dijon mustard, you will definitely adore this dish!
Lemon & Thyme Chicken
Recipe as per the Just For 2 packet instruction
