Stay Home Date Night Made Easy is part of an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for InnovAsian Cuisine. I received coupons for Lemon Grass Kitchen frozen meals to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I remember the days when J and I were dating and it felt like we had run out of ideas for things to do. Now it seems to be the opposite. I’ll admit that I don’t make date night a priority. We’re lucky to have J’s parents living close by and Grambo living in the same house so if we plan ahead we can easily go out on a date.
But sometimes it seems like we do better trying to plan stay home dates. I’m not quite ready to be away from C for too long (I know, I know) so planning something to do together at home while the kids sleep is a great alternative. And we found a great way to enjoy some tasty food without having to depend on take out!
Stay Home Date Night Made Easy
Recently we planned a stay home date night with a little help from InnovAsian Cuisine’s Lemon Grass Kitchen and it was great to reconnect with J without feeling like we had to rush home to relieve whichever grandparents were watching the kids.
The date plan started with the idea of enjoying some of our favorite things. When I think of my favorite foods, thai food immediately comes to mind. We usually order from a local restaurant and J runs out to pick it up but the Lemon Grass Kitchen Line features high quality ingredients individually packaged for superior freshness. I figured it might be fun to spend a short time in the kitchen together putting together dinner.
Lemon Grass Kitchen meals are easy to prepare and also easy to customize. I added bean sprouts and peanuts to my Chicken Pad Thai to make it more like hitting the restaurant. For the price and ease, I thought the flavor was excellent. It was a great addition to our stay home date night!
We also enjoyed the great curry flavor of the Thai-Style Fried Rice. It was nice to be able to share entrees the way we do when we go out to eat too. Of course, we happened to be curled up together on the couch instead of stuck across the table from each other while we ate. It was nice to just enjoy some quiet time as husband and wife.
After a delicious meal of some of our favorite flavors, we each picked out one of our favorite movies to enjoy together. We got through one… well, J got through both while I fell asleep. But it was nice to fall asleep cuddled up with my guy!
