Date night, oh how I miss you. Gone are the times of late night pizza dates and fancy dinners, we haven’t been to the movies in who knows how long. Eating out with a newborn is kinda like working with the monkeys at the zoo. I say that in the most loving way possible. There is a lot of bouncing, swinging, rocking, feeding and crying involved. I needed to find a solution that The Mister and I could enjoy, and not be stressed out the entire time. We needed an easy date night, something we could even enjoy at home. It’s time to get creative. If you hang out with us regularly you know I’ve been learning to cook and while that is going great, with cooking comes cleaning. I needed to find a yummy food to make for an easy date night dinner with little clean up.
We love Mexican food. I was born and raised in Texas, it’s pretty much in my blood. We decided to try Cocina Mexicana Frozen Bowls by Hormel. They had tons of variety so I was able to get a few option that we would both like for us to share.
Just because you cooked dinner in the microwave, doesn’t mean you have to eat it in a plastic bowl. I set the table with our normal dishes and even used a few candles.
Since Baby D went to bed before dinner we paired our easy date night with a dvd rental, since movies are a thing of the past. I grabbed my favorite theater candy and relaxed on the couch to enjoy.
What is your favorite easy date night combo?
