The D word. That would be dates, of course. Because they can make a person feel happy, excited, nervous, and sometimes crazy, one of the challenges on a date is coming up with a conversation so that the time spent on the date won’t be awkward.
Going to a restaurant and having dinner is always fun, but the risk of garlic breath is a big one to take. What about going to your pantry and fridge or just as far as the grocery store for an amazing date? No, I’m not suggesting that you should have a date next to the ice cream section. I am suggesting having a dinner date with a meal that is home-made.
Let’s quickly get the idea out of the way that you don’t have to be a professional chef in order to cook. A home-made dinner should be low key, so don’t stress much about what food to make. There are a lot of meals that can be made by people who are not professional chefs, like chicken sandwiches and many others. You can even Google some fast and easy recipies. This will give you lots of ideas to choose from. Sure the food won’t taste like it might at a fancy restaurant, but it will be more special. Working as a team to chop and cook the food will be a lots of fun, and the conversation will flow easily at dinner time. Let’s also not forget that music can be put on in the background to sing along with while the food is being cooked. This will make the date even more enjoyable. For desert, you can go with something easy like ice cream since you’ve already done a lot of work chopping, piling and cooking, as it’s always ready to serve.
Keep in mind on this date that the point is not only to show off your cooking skills (if you’ve got them) but mostly to enjoy your date and yourself as well. Remember the whole point of the home-made dinner date is to have fun and share a recipe with your date. You won’t even have to worry about paying a bill, and you can tag team the dish washing duties. Just remember to go easy on the garlic.
