A Delicious New Year with Daily Chef Bruschetta! #MealsTogether

Justin wakes up at 3:30am for work 5 days a week, so he’s not a stay-up-until-midnight-on-New-Year’s kind of guy. He’s so in the habit of going to bed at 8pm that by 9pm, he’s basically a walking zombie. In the past, I’ve let him go to bed on New Year’s Eve & have just woken him up at about 11:55 to watch the countdown & fireworks with me, but this year was different. His sister & her husband were in town and staying at his parents’ house, and they invited us over for a New Year’s Eve mini-party. I knew that we’d leave before midnight since we have a three-year-old anyway, so I talked Justin into letting us accept the invitation.

I didn’t want to show up empty-handed, but I also didn’t want to make anything complicated. I wasn’t sure what everyone would like, and it had already been such a crazy week with Christmas having just ended {including our second Christmas on Saturday} so I wanted something that I could just pop in the oven & forget about for a bit. When I heard about Daily Chef Bruschetta, available at Sam’s Club, I knew it was the perfect solution. Who doesn’t like bruschetta?

I have been wanting to get a Sam’s Club membership for awhile now so I finally went out & got one! While I was there, I searched for the bruschetta. I found another yummy appetizer option from Daily Chef, but I had my heart set on the bruschetta. When I found it, there were two kinds: Chicken & Bacon, which I know my family would love but I couldn’t eat {I don’t eat bacon}, or Chicken Spinach & Artichoke. I am completely obsessed with Spinach & Artichoke everything- it’s the appetizer we get everywhere- so it was perfect!

There were only going to be 6 of us {plus Shane, but he’s a very picky eater so I didn’t count him} at the party so I just got one box. It was giant- it had 32 pieces in it for just $9.95! That was definitely more than enough for our party. We headed for check out along with some other great finds- you can see what we found that Shane was excited about in my G+ album!

The perfect party supplies: Daily Chef Bruschetta, Fudge Covered Oreos & a huge stack of games!

The next day was New Year’s Eve, and Justin went snowboarding in Utah with his dad. When they got back to my in-law’s house, I met up with them with Shane & the bruschetta in tow.

Still frozen, but it already looks delicious!

I called ahead to have Justin preheat the oven to 400, and then as soon as I got there I popped them onto a baking sheet & put them in the oven for 12 minutes. While I waited, I loaded up Shane’s plate & mine with the pizza that they’d ordered for the mini-party, and the timing was perfect!

When the bruschetta was done, I could barely wait for it to cool down to eat it. It looked amazing, and I could tell it was going to be delicious! Even so, I underestimated it. The bread was perfect- a hard crust with a soft middle- and while I’ve had some bad luck with frozen spinach & artichoke before, this seriously tasted like I’m used to from restaurants.

Everyone loved it- they knew that it was frozen, but they couldn’t believe it! A few of us even went back for more.

We ended up staying & playing games until around 10:30- much later than I expected- and by the time we got home, it was so close to midnight that we just let Shane stay up to ring in the New Year. It was the first time that we were all together at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s & it was definitely one to remember!

  15. I thought bruschetta was only made with a tomato recipe which i already love but now you really peaked my interest. i love this idea and i am a fan of all these ingredients actually more than the tomato one. I guess You can also top it with tomatos if someone wanted to. I definitely have to try your recommendation, thanks
