During the holidays it gets harder and harder for me to find the time during the week to prepare a good, homemade meal for my family. If I’m not making Christmas Cards, ornaments, or some other craft for a present then I’m writing. Things get really busy for bloggers this time of the year. However, I hate ordering meals out because it’s quite expensive and really there are not a lot of places around us that have food worth ordering. I’m especially a bit picky when it comes to the pizzerias and Italian food places because I was raised in an Italian family.
Did you know that about me?
I’m half Filipino and half Scottish-mix but my step-father is Italian, by the name of Ambrosino. You don’t get much more Italian than that really…from Sicily I believe. Growing up we had pasta every week, if not more than once a week. My all time favorite meal was when he made Eggplant Parmesan. It was out of this world. Anyway, to get back to what I was saying, I’m a pretty good judge of good Italian food and when I don’t make it we do Michael Angelo’s. It’s particularly perfect for pre-holiday meal time. The multi-serve (19.5 – 38 oz) Michael Angelo’s meals work great for our family and we normally serve different varieties so everyone has their favorites.
Whether it’s Sausage Lasagna or Eggplant Parmesan, served with a side salad in under an hour, poof, dinner is served. I think one of the reasons we like their food so much is because they are still a family-owned business ran by the CEO Michael Angelo Renna and his mother Sara. They have been preparing Italian food for years and they found a way to freeze their recipes and share their dishes while maintaining flavor and freshness that tastes like the original. Since there are no additives you get a more authentic taste. I’m a firm believer that just because I don’t have time to prepare meals through the holidays like I normally do, my family shouldn’t suffer.
As Michael likes to say, “If you can’t find it in Mom’s kitchen, you won’t find it in our food.”
You can find Michael Angelo’s at your local grocery store.
