Taking care of yourself is an excellent way to be prepared to take great care of the other people in your life. This extends from yourself as a single person to nurturing the important relationships in your life.
One of the date nights my husband and I enjoy is sharing dinner together after the boys are in bed. It's a chance for us to spend time together, eat a meal uninterrupted (hopefully), and it doesn't require getting a sitter!
On this particular night, we tried:
We had a few different kinds of crackers and made a honey mustard sauce out of
yellow mustard and agave.
All of that was paired with a red wine we had on hand.
All in all, it was a nice relaxing dinner and a nice chance to spend a little time together. Next time, though I'm definitely making sure the only thing that was missing gets addressed - a rich chocolate dessert!
