Date Night Menu Done Right

I think that everyone likes to have someone cook for them every once in a while. If that someone happens to be the someone you happen to be dating (or would like to be dating)? Even better!

Date night meals don’t have to be difficult or expensive, though. Try out this menu next time you have the chance to woo your sweetheart and you’ll surely sweep her (or him) off of her (or his) feet.

Start the meal off with a cocktail – it’ll help ease your nerves! An Aperol Spritz is a refreshing cocktail perfect for the end of summer, and the fact that it uses Prosecco (don’t worry, you don’t have to splurge on the fancy Champagne) makes it perfect for a date night drink.

Since it is date night, do the fancy thing and start the meal with a salad course. Spinach Stone Fruit Salad is a perfect choice: sweet cherries, peaches, and nectarines pair with creamy avocado, crunchy walnuts and a sweet white wine vinaigrette for a salad that is both good for you and dynamic in flavor.

Since we put on our fancy pants with our fresh and fruity salad, let’s keep the fancy going with our main course: Endive and Ham Bake. Your beau will be impressed to see you channeling your inner Frenchman with this combination of bitter endive, salty ham, and creamy cheese. Served alongside Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes, this is a meal that you and your sweetheart will want to make for each other again and again.

Of course, we can’t forget about dessert! What would date night be without some chocolate? Marble Bark with Pistachios and Fleur de Sel will look like it took you hours to make, but only requires a cool 20 minutes to reach chocolatey, salty bliss. Enjoy this chocolate bark at the end of the meal with a glass of wine and bask in each other’s company – it is date night, after all!
