Ideas for a Date Night In

I know we are all dying for a night out at this point in our “social distancing” lives, but just because we are confined to our homes doesn’t mean we can’t have fun with our significant other! Here are a few ideas for a date night in. We hope will spark some laughter and joy this weekend!

An oldie but a goodie! Use your BBQ or oven, and our AMAZING pizza dough recipe!

Blind Wine Tasting.

Another one of our fave ideas for a Date Night In is to do a blind wine tasting. Richelle, Edmonton blogger, enjoys a glass of white wine.

Grab a few different bottles of mixed price points, vintages and varietals. On a sheet of paper number the bottles and write down the names. Do a quick google search on each wine and jot down the location the wine came from, and a few tasting notes for each. Cover the Labels on the bottles with paper and number the Bottles (make sure they match your sheet of paper!) Then have fun trying to be a sommelier and figure out which is which!

CharcuterieRichelle, of River City Sisters lifestyle blog, makes a delicious charcuterie board for a fun date night in.

Meat and Cheese go hand in hand with vino, so why not Put together a fun  Charcuterie Board  ?? We’ve got lots of fun inspiration to make the best charcuterie. Or, try doing a Crudité board instead if you are looking for a lighter fare.
