Cooking as a couple ~ Newlywed Girl

I have come to realize cooking couples seems to be a dying breed. This is especially true when you start having kids and are getting over the whole ‘honeymoon or newlywed stage.’ I really think that we should be bringing this fad back! Its a great way to catch up with your other half, as well as, strengthening your relationship by doing activities together that normally feel like chores.

Sunday night, my hubby and I combined our powers in the kitchen and made a delicious grilled steak and veggie dinner. He watched while I marinated and coated the steak with my quick pepper crust, prepped the asparagus and microwave ‘baked’ potatoes. When I was finished with my prepping, he took the veggies and steak out to the BBQ grill to cook. It was simple but it was fun – he wasn’t just couch potatoing while I made dinner.

We poured a nice bottle of pinot noir to enjoy with our delicious homemade steak meal. This meal would rival any major steakhouse, in my opinion.

I wish I took photos of the food! Oh well – you’ll have to take my word that it was good looking and tasty.

After dinner we caught an evening show of Dark Knight and shared some stale movie popcorn. It was a really great movie, I can understand the hype now.  

My suggestion: try this date night style, you might just enjoy it.
