I made myself a BBQ chicken sandwich on a whole wheat sandwich thin with baby greens and gobs of mustard.
For some added veggies, I also enjoyed a side of broccoli slaw with Italian dressing.
Minimal effort was required to assemble this lunch, but it was still super satisfying and delicious.
My kinda meal!
As long-time PBF followers already know, Ryan and I take turns planning date nights for each other every other month. This is something we’ve been doing for years and is something we both look forward to every single time.
It’s fun to be the “date planner” and brainstorm creative date ideas you think the other person will enjoy and it’s obviously fun to be the one wined, dined and entertained!
Our date nights don’t have any restrictions, limitations, budgets or minimums. A date night can be a simple picnic at a park or a fancy-schmancy four-course dinner.
Past date nights have included:
- Pottery painting
- Indoor skydiving
- Winter Park Boat Tour & Dinner at Luma
- Festival of Trees at the Orlando Museum of Art
- Dinner at the Capital Grille
- Straight No Chaser Concert
- Dinner at Season’s 52 (I know, I’m obsessed…)
- The Best One (Ryan’s scavenger hunt that ended in a proposal)
When blog reader Lindsey e-mailed me asking how I come up with date ideas, I started to think about the steps I take when planning a fun date night. When it’s my turn to plan a date, I typically do a number of things:
- Think about local restaurants we’re dying to try
- Hop on Ticketmaster.com to see if any comedians or good concerts are coming to the area
- Check out Groupon.com for local deals and promotions
- Talk to friends and coworkers about fun things they’ve done recently
- Look at the city of Orlando’s calendar of events for fun festivals
As you may have guessed, tonight is DATE NIGHT!
It was my turn to plan a date this month and I’m excited for the activity we have planned.
It’s gonna be a fun (& yummy!) one!
