If you have been following my blog before now you will now this is a monthly series I do where I post an easy idea for a date you can do with your partner to connect at home once the kids are in bed. Usually for cheaply because who does not like to be frugal? If you are new, welcome! This is the fourth in the series so if you are looking for some other ideas on easy dates to do at home then don’t forget to check out the previous three at the bottom of the post. It can be hard as a parent with young children to go anywhere, I have a nursing baby so I tend to not go very far from home, and rarely at night. It is important for my husband and I to still get quality time in and connect with each other so it is my mission to provide fun dates for us to do at least once a month, hopefully easy ones that you can do at home with your love.Who doesn't love melted cheese? Even better when it is on a date. Click To Tweet
Idea: A date night at home, can even be during the week after work (that was the only time that worked for our schedule) with some delicious Fondue.
- Fondue Pot, forks, and burner
- Fondue (either in the package or home-made, I posted a great recipe Wednesday you can try).
Set the table as romantic as possible, I did it while the kids were still awake so as soon as they were asleep we could eat. Table cloth, candles, wine glasses (even if it is just for water, it feels fancier), fondue, fixings.
It was great! My husband unfortunately had a long hard day at work and was home super late, right after the kids were in bed actually, so he was starving when he walked in and ready to eat. I think the date already set up really helped relieve some of his stress as it immediately distracted him from his work issues and put his mind on more important things, like me! Just kidding, on melted cheese and yummy bread, it’s hard to be in a bad mood while (delicately) stuffing your face with that and other delicious foods!
Just a quick 40 minute romantic meal date and then we could veg on the couch and be exhausted, that 40 minute re-charge was great though. It really changed our moods and also was a good excuse for an amazing dinner!
You can make your fondue from those packages at the grocery store, and those certainly are good, but home-made fondue is absolutely AMAZING! If you have not tried to make it yourself before I highly recommend it. Super easy and not a lot of ingredients needed. Check out my recipe here for an easy one to try.
Comment below if you try it. Your challenge this month is to try to do this date, or another one with your partner and let me know how it goes. Even better if you post it on Instagram I'm participating in #RFAKDateNightChallenge! Come join me for easy date ideas you can do at home. Click To Tweet
