Is it just us or does date night seem a little more elusive than usual these days? Many of us are opting to stay home rather than venture out to restaurants, movie theaters, and the like. That said, spending quality time with our sweetie is still incredibly important, and on these chilly autumn evenings, what better place is there to be than in the arms of the person we love most?
Instead of grabbing your plate and eating dinner in front of the television again, why not dine in with intention? Make a meal that feels a little more special than your regular fare. Opt for a nicer cut of meat, add another course, and finish things off with a tasty treat that’s as sweet as your special someone.
When dinner is over, you can plan a fun at-home activity (think games, wine-tastings, a craft, etc) or even watch a movie (splurge for a new release you’ve both been wanting to watch instead of mindlessly binging your everyday TV crime drama).
If you’re at a loss for what to prepare, we’ve got you covered. We’ve got a whole menu planned out that’s perfect for a fall date night at home. Enjoy, friends!
