This Weeks Eats 9.13.15 (And the Sanctity of Date Night)

A friend recently put a request to Twitter for regular date night ideas, because dinner out gets expensive and really doesn't take up enough time.  We do try to go out for dinner maybe every six weeks or so, and usually we extend the time by wandering the aisles of Total Wine - a store that is NO FUN going to with children.  We'd probably go out more often if we didn't love our at home date nights so much.  It's something that we take very seriously, prioritize our schedules around and look forward to all week.  It's always an indulgent meal (big pasta or steak) that goes well with wine and after dinner drinks (like these).  It's always Saturday night after the kids go to bed.  And, it's always followed by a Redbox new release, or an old favorite film.  

Oh, and there are always candles and music. (Took this one last night while our steaks rested and we ate our wedge salads with blue cheese and heirloom tomatoes.)

Dinner and a movie at home has all the benefits of date night, plus I can wear my sweats.  Highly recommend!
