Plan date nights.
As much as I enjoy our nightly routine (i.e., cook dinner or eat out and watch a movie, play Scrabble, or work on crafts) I also appreciate an occasional date. I like the message it communicates: "I care enough to set aside time to plan something that will make you happy."
So tonight's date? Pumpkin carving! (and seed roasting)
And, as an additional surprise, I did all the grocery shopping for the week (which Matt and I usually do together), so we have more time to just carve and relax. Matt gets to choose from our five menu options:
- Vegetarian lasagna
- Homemade pizza (did you know Whole Foods will sell you a thing of raw dough for real cheap?)
- Black bean and yam quesadillas with guacamole
- Grilled cheese and spicy bean soup (with homemade bread)
- Tomato, mozzarella, and basil sandwiches
