Date night - Jerome style
Date night at the Jerome residence is on Tuesday night. It came about after a rough move from Maryland almost 4 years ago and 7 months living with Darrell's dad. Needless to say, funds were low, so creativity was high. For the past (almost) four years, Darrell and I have tried to keep Tuesday night open for us. Typically, we don't leave the house and the children don't either. When the kids were younger, we would feed them kid-friendly food, put them to bed (a little early?), and make an adult-only meal. Nowadays, we rent a special movie on Tuesday nights, still feed the kids a kid-friendly meal and let them watch their movie while we eat our meal and catch up with each other. Sometimes we get take-out, but most of the time one of us finds a cool recipe to try and we (o.k., usually Darrell) makes it. We really look forward to our adult-only meals on Tuesday nights. Above was tonight's dish.....Kale Lasagna Diavolo from the magazine Vegetarian Times, January/February 2011 issue. Excellent! The conversation and company was excellent too! We do occasionally get a babysitter and go out for a date night, but this keeps us connected on a weekly basis. How do you and your significant other stay connected during the week?
