Friday I’m in Love: Summer Date Night in the Kitchen

This date night idea is an oldie but a goodie.
B and I usually cook dinner together, but are in charge of different courses. He prefers to cook the meat and I will do the vegetables.  So to make it feel more like a date and as one,  I found a one pan recipe. That way we were both looking forward to the same end result. It is so fun to cook with my love. I learn more about his food preferences every time. It is a great cost effective date that has a high interaction level and I love that!

I love finding new recipes on Pinterest. There always seems to be a never ending supply. We chose this recipe and also experimented with new ways to cook an artichoke.  Usually B steams the artichoke but wanted to see how roasting an artichoke tasted. It was good but I think we may stick to steaming ( or grilling if only we had an outdoor grill!).
The pasta dish was pretty good but will probably not be repeated. B and I would rate it a 6.5 out of 10. That is my one beef with finding recipes on Pinterest. Everyone is getting so talented at photography that all the dishes look so tasty and doable. And then you start on them and it’s a different story…. Does that ever happen to you?photo 4 (1)photo 5

I think the next thing that would be fun to cook together for a date night would be homemade pizzas!
