Blessed Pinterest for sharing so many great ideas! I always see something that looks awesome that sparks a date night. I absolutely love finding other’s ideas on creative dating too!
I was intrigued by a pin I saw linking to the blog “A Bit of Sunshine” by Rebekah Gogh. She is an amazing photographer which is something that draws me into blogs instantly! She and her friend cooked up this idea for date nights at home called “Dinner at Eight.” Basically they have young children they have a hard time leaving or affording to leave, and decided to get crafty and have a dinner at home after putting children to bed extra early. About every other month they give a theme, February being “Sweetheart.” My heart melted looking at so much amazing food, cooking, and dating. We’re talking like all favorite things in one! Jacob and I decided to jump aboard since cooking at home is always a great date for us!
Since we had big plans for Saturday and the month is drawing to close quickly, we decided to have a spontaneous date Friday and buy some fresh ingredients for a romantic pasta dinner at home.
We had a really good time using our Kitchen aid attachment to roll out some home made spinach noodles. After that we just used a pizza cutter to make thick noodles from the sheets rolled. *Don’t fret if you don’t have a noodle roller, it’s not hard to do it with a rolling pin!
And adding a fancy drink always seems to help with dinner! We don’t do alcohol, but we do enjoy Italian soda- particularly with an Italian dish- now that’s amore!
