Good Date Ideas: Cook as a Couple!
Do you like it in the kitchen? Book a date with your honey to cook as a couple. Cooking together is a good date idea that can go cheap—a simple meal at home while the kids are out of your hair, or extravagant—cooking classes with a private chef, with lots of in between.
- It's together time. While dining out is a great treat, creating a meal together is interactive. You get to function as a team to produce you're own reward—a delicious meal, duh. But unlike, say, a weeknight family meal sandwiched between soccer and ballet, cooking for two can be leisurely and playful. There are those who even dare to cook naked, but careful around those burners!
- Enjoy the anticipation. Start your date to cook a few days before the actual meal. Snuggle up and write up your menu, then shop together for ingredients. Or maybe one of you plans the meal, sending texts as hints as to what's for dinner. Anticipation of the big event will make it that much more fun.
- Get sensual. It's hard not to get sexy when you're talking about gratifying your senses, and all of your senses can be delighted when you cook as a couple. Come on, remember 9 1/2 Weeks? And they weren't even cooking. Feed each other little tastes, waft the scent of a shared bottle of wine, use your hands to mix ingredients, it's all good!
