    My husband and I always like making popcorn for movie/tv at home date nights. We pop it in a brown lunch bag and top it with whatever spices we’re feeling on that particular evening. So much better than store bought microwave popcorn! Chocolate and wine are also always amazing. Those Brookside chocolates look delicious!

    Micky — February 12, 2013 @ 3:15 pm

    My favorite date night meal is classic spaghetti with a nice glass of red wine. Reminds me of Lady & the Tramp. A chocolate dessert is perfect to top it all off.

    Anne — February 12, 2013 @ 3:36 pm

    My favorite meal for date night is chicken in cream sauce over rice, because it’s my spouse’s favorite (and I like it, too). I always make it for him when he needs to be reminded he’s special.

    My favorite date night meal is make-your-own pizza. Interactive food dates are so much more exciting than just going out to a restaurant. The best toppings to keep on hand are pesto, marinara, roasted peppers, artichokes, avocado, eggplant, mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes 🙂

  27. #
    Celeste — February 12, 2013 @ 7:05 pm

  50. #
    Elissa — February 13, 2013 @ 8:17 am

    My favorite date night is when my boyfriend and I go out and get a dozen raw oysters. Then we also share appetizers a salad or a meal and eat off of the same plate. Waiters always try to give us another clean plate and we never use it 🙂

  65. #
    amanda w. — February 13, 2013 @ 6:41 pm

    My husband is veg and I am not, so meals can be tricky. Favorite date meals are often small plates. We like assorted cheeses, (prosciutto for me), almonds, olives, roasted peppers, good bread, salad and wine. The bonus is this kind of meal encourages slowing down a bit, which we really need these days!

  66. #
    Danielle T — February 13, 2013 @ 6:50 pm

    i love a good movie with stove top kettle popcorn!
