Keep the high heels in the closet and pull out your favorite hoodie. This date night is dedicated to relaxation and simplicity. A little quality time spent free of television, laptops and cell phones could be just what your relationship needs. Unplug and light the fire, the only place you're going is to the couch.
Date Night Dishes... Unplugged relaxation
Sometimes date night doesn't need to involve any major event, a fancy dinner or even a cute outfit. An evening spent relaxing and perhaps not even talking may just be exactly what you both need after a long week. Take a trip to the library and pick out a book you've been dying to read or ask the librarian for some recommendations. Head home to a warm couch covered in blankets, a roaring fire, and just you two and your newfound reading material. Commit to spend the night free of distractions.
Of course you'll need to eat, so after a simple dinner -- take-out perhaps -- treat yourselves to this light and tangy version of creme brulee. Grapefruit is in season and its refreshing flavor will remind you of warm summer days. Custard is generally a diet buster, but this creme brulee recipe uses nonfat Greek yogurt and very little sugar. Save the extra mint and grapefruit and make up a few mojitos to enjoy while you lounge on the couch.
