I've talked in the past how Cory and I try to have weekly dates - whether out or at home. This past Sunday we decided to have a brunch date at home complete with lemon ricotta pancakes and bacon. Hold the mimosas though because we were still bouncing back from the tequila-drenched Cinco de Mayo. Plus, by staying in we got to wear comfy clothes & catch up on our shows from the week (i.e.: New Girl & Life in Pieces). Below I've provided a list of some of our favorite date nights in.
1. Sunday Brunch at Home - I LOVE pancakes so sometimes on Sunday mornings Cory will surprise me with my favorite lemon pancakes. Recipe here.
2. Cook dinner together - Cory and I try to meal prep for the week on Sunday nights because we're always so exhausted and time is limited during the week. But on Fridays or Saturday nights when we have time we love to get in the kitchen together. Cory is the cook in our family but I can chop garlic & pour wine. It's still such a nice time together, light our favorite candles, turn on some music and pour a glass of wine and enjoy the time together. Mexican night is one of our favorites with jalapeño margaritas.
3. Order in - Movies or TV on the couch and delivery (we're lucky to live in the NYC area so the sky is the limit with what we can order for delivery). Easy and relaxing. Don't forget the wine.
