This great, time-saving service and recipe is brought to you today thanks to Skinner® pasta. All opinions are mine alone.
Did you know about National Friendship Day? It’s true – and what better way to celebrate or show appreciation for a friend (or two) than telling them about a great service that can save them plenty of time and even money? To all my busy mom friends out there, here’s my gift to you – Why Instacart is Perfect for Busy Moms!
One of the best gifts us busy moms (and dads!) can receive is the gift of time – and grocery delivery can be the ultimate lifesaver. I don’t know about you, but skipping the hassle of getting all the way dressed, heading to the store, finding the items, checking out, and driving back sounds like a miracle – and it’s easy to get! Skinner® Pasta – the #1 pasta in Texas – is partnering with Instacart to offer FREE grocery delivery (or $5 off your total grocery bill) beginning last week on August 6th in celebration of National Friendship Day. Imagine, all your groceries delivered right to your door, and you can even stay in your pjs!
Not only can you get quick, convenient grocery delivery with Instacart thanks to Skinner Pasta, but they’re also holding the Howdy Skinner Sweepstakes – a Texas-sized getaway and other fun prizes sure to make anyone smile. If you win, you could share the trip with your own best friend! Visit HowdySkinner.com to enter, and you’ll have a chance to win a 3-night stay for you (and a friend, of course) at the Marriot Marquis Houston – that includes airfare and $500 spending money for seeing the sites, hitting up restaurants and attractions or a fun shopping spree!
Other fun prizes include membership to Care.com and $500 – giving you more ‘me’ time by handling dog walking, babysitting and housekeeping services – or you could win FREE PASTA for a year for you and a friend! The sweepstakes kicked off on National Friendship Day (August 6th) and ends 09/06/17 at 11:59:59pm CDT. See details and official rules at HowdySkinner.com.
As part of their partnership with Skinner, Instacart is giving free grocery delivery for customers in Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Dallas. All you have to do is buy ONE package of Skinner Pasta and have a minimum $35 order. Those who don’t qualify for free delivery (if you’re already an Instacart Express Customer or a first time customer) will receive $5 off your order (delivery must be $35 or more to qualify).
No matter what Skinner Pasta you choose to add to your Instacart, it’d taste great with our Homemade Alfredo Sauce recipe:
- 2 tbsp. Butter
- 1 Garlic Clove, minced
- 1 tsp. Red Pepper flakes
- 1 cup Heavy Cream
- 1 tbsp. All-purpose Flour
- 1/4 cup Parmesan, grated or shredded
- In a medium saucepan, melt the Butter over medium heat.
- Add the Red Pepper Flakes (adjust based on your desired ‘kick’) and minced Garlic, cooking about 1 minute or until fragrant.
- Mix in the Flour; cook until light tan in color.
- Mix in the Cream, reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
- Add the Parmesan, stirring until melted in, then remove saucepan from heat.
This goes great as a topping for your favorite Skinner Pasta – whether you use spaghetti like we did here, or their fun Texas shape pasta! Skinner Pasta tastes great and is easy to cook with; it always turns out right. Not only is it gentle on your wallet, but it’s so flexible – allowing you to make all sorts of delish recipes in a hurry for those busy family nights or get-togethers with friends!
Who would YOU share the Houston trip with if you won?
