Hi guys! Last night’s date night was so fun and relaxing. And I was in bed by 10:30, wooottt!
The night started with some simple smoked salmon + cream cheese on some multigrain crusty bread.
I had two and they were yummy! I’m definitely going to get the bigger package of smoked salmon from Sam’s next time we go. The current package I bought from WF and it’s not all that much in quanity and it was pretty pricey. I also had a POM spritzer with my appetizer, POM + seltzer. Fancy.
Dinner was easy peasy but sounds froo-froo and was very delish.
I sauteed up some red onion and swiss chard. Added in some grated garlic, a splash of white, and a splash of chicken stock, letting that all hang out. Last minute I added in some small already cooked shirmp and spooned portions over whole wheat couscous. Good and some spicy kick at the end because I also added in spicy mustard, horseradish, and some red pepper flakes. I didn’t eat that entire bowl but about 1/2? The smoked salmon helped with filling me up. I had a wine spritzer with dinner. Splash of white and seltzer.
After dinner (and no cleanup because it was date night) we sat on the couch and watched some TV. I had a glass of white and maltballs.
2 maltballs and I didn’t finish that glass. It was a big pour and I gave myself an hour to sip it because I was going to bed. I didn’t finish it in an hour and I didn’t want anymore so I passed it off to Scott. Then I fell into a lovely coma in my bed. My throat didn’t give me any issues last night and the wine didn’t seem to dry it out. Hooray!!
I love date nights at home. We can sit in our jammies and nibble on yummy special food while just relaxing and hanging out. Leaving us both feeling loved and content.
