Date Night Log: Saturday, March 8, 2014
Dinner, a Nearly Double Feature, and Dessert
So, date night was going to be making cookies and watching a movie. Then, we went shopping to Sam’s and Kohl’s with my parents. And Muffin’s nap started at 3:30. By now, many people realize that means that Muffin is (pretty much) out for the night. So, date night actually included dinner, movie, baking cookies, and watching a movie.
For dinner, I had what I will now call a Blue Rocket Burger. Josh used his burger press to again grill beefy pork burgers (the beef-pork mixture makes for such a yummy patty). He also grilled asparagus and sausage that we had purchased from Sam’s that he plans to use in his lunches this week.
Anyway, I call it a Blue Rocket burger because it has blue cheese on it as well as Arugula (purchased on produce markdown at Brookshire’s for 99 cents and also called rocket).
After dinner, Josh crushed the corn flakes for Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies (the Joanne Fluke/Hannah Swensen mystery series/Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder recipe).
He put on Naked Gun on Netflix that we watched while I baked the cookies. I made them smaller this time, so they made a lot. I think the next time I make them, I will roll them out in balls and freeze half to bake again later.
I put a few on a plate for us to share. We attempted to watch Robin Hood: Men in Tights, as well, but we fell asleep partway through (plus, Muffin woke up after that one began, so it turned out to be not a date part of date night).
Date night was fairly successful. Lesson learned from this date night? Take the opportunity where it finds you. Like when Muffin is sleeping.
How has date night gone for you, lately?
