Hubby and I decided that tonight would be our “date night”. Its been a while since we’ve had a night to ourselves. Normally on date night we would pick out a nice restaurant to eat at and have a few drinks. Tonight it going to be a little different. We are having date night at home. We decided since we’ve eaten out the last two nights that it would be more special to cook something fun together at home.
Our date night eats include: an assortment of cheese and crackers, homemade pizza, and lots of red wine.
I brought out my old friend, bread machine, this morning to make our homemade pizza dough.
Wondering why there is a telephone 1 foot above the floor on my wall? The little man loves him some “telfone”. So we mounted it there for him.
Anyway … I seasoned my homemade pizza dough with olive oil, garlic, oregano and a little crushed red pepper.
The dough ball keeps growing so big it actually busted through the freezer paper I wrapped it in.
I thought it would be fun to make our own pizza together. Some of our topping options include: pesto, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, and goat cheese. Mmm!
Speaking of goat cheese … I bought this to try.
If you can’t read it, it is goat cheese with blueberry and cinnamon and OH.MY.GOD!
I did have one epic fail in my date night planning however, I forgot chocolate! There cannot be romance without chocolate. Hubby is on his way to the store to retrieve chocolate so that we can get date night underway properly.
Our after dinner entertainment will be a movie from Netflix.
See you tomorrow!
