A Valentine's Day Date Night Alternative
Not in love with the idea of an expensive dinner reservation and crowded movie theaters on Valentine’s Day? You’re in luck! We’re giving you a foolproof plan, ideal for the lovebirds that want to stay in the nest this Valentine’s Day weekend!
Let’s break this down. There are two essential components to the date night equation: Food + Entertainment.
Sure, you can order takeout or microwave leftovers, but where’s the romance in that? Treat your date to a tasty home-cooked meal. Creating a menu is easy when you stick to one simple theme: Breakfast for Dinner.
- Step 1: Grab your griddle and heat it up for eggs and crispy bacon. Because who doesn’t love bacon?
- Step 2: Whip up your favorite waffle batter (go for the box mix – no one will know!) and bake up endless fluffy, golden waffles. Is your main-squeeze into Star Wars or the Avengers? Yeah, we have waffle makers for that. Lightly sift powdered sugar overtop for a restaurant-worthy presentation.
- Step 3: A little thing we like to call Mimosas. Some OJ, some champagne, and you’re good to go. Add a fancy fruit garnish for an extra special effect.
If rom-coms make your fella cringe, go for one of these underrated romantic films. Don’t worry, they still provide all the feels you look for in a good love story.
If movies aren’t your thing, take to your Roku and find a show you can binge watch side by side. Netflix and Hulu are stocked with classic sitcoms like Friends or The Office that will have you laughing together all night long. Impress your guest even more with fresh-popped popcorn. Any of our popcorn-makers will create the perfect treat for a cozy night on the couch.
There you have it! Who needs a night on the town with a date like this? You never know– this could be the start of a beautiful tradition with your Valentine!
