Now I love to cook! I find it so therapeutic and relaxing. Yes even with a little ones at my feet asking me to help all the time, I love to hear the words, ‘I helping too’. They get the bowls out along with every cooking utensil in the draw they can lay their little hands on. Its loads of fun watching them practicing their pretend cooking skills.
I do 99.9% of the cooking at home. Hubby confesses that he’s not confident at cooking however, he is always keen learn and will help out when I need it.
So this got me thinking. We were due for a date night and given that he’s not that confident in the kitchen, why not have a date night of cooking together? I thought homemade pizza’s would be the pretty easy to start with. We made up the pizza dough, I got hubby to arrange all the toppings we wanted and we began rolling out the bases together and making our pizza’s. It’s great to include the kids in making the pizza’s, they love it and have such fun building up their little master pieces. I also find if they help cook they are more likely to eat it!
We have a ball doing it together and made loads of mess but had the most beautiful homemade pizza’s. Hubby thought that it was pretty easy to do and said he felt confident enough to give them ago himself in the future, guess who's having pizza every night now! haha
After finally getting the kids to bed, we settled on the couch with some wine and watched Game of Thrones. What better way to end a fun afternoon than in the arms of your best friend on the couch eating pizza!
Date night’s don’t always have to be about organising a baby sitter and going out for dinner, keep it simple, inexpensive and most of all enjoyable.
Does your hubby or partner cook? If so what’s their signature dish?
