Skipping Friday Food

Well, I skipped Friday Food for good reasons....Max and I had a date night, a long overdue date night. We went out for dinner without the kids. It was wonderful but also felt odd not to have the kids with us. I've gotten to a point where I'm so conditioned to having multiple interruptions during my meals and often not able to get to my food until it's actually cold that it was such a treat to just sit back and enjoy a nice leisurely dinner.

We made sure to enjoy it from beginning to end, yummy cocktails and appetizer, cucumber gimlets and Mexican wild shrimp ceviche, an overall delishhhh dinner ( a few disappointments but still delish) of several small plates, tapas style, that included mouth watering scallops in a Brazilian curry sauce, and ended with dessert, a rum and Kahlua soaked tiramisu topped with Mexican chocolate shavings. Where you ask? Where did we have such a delectable dinner... we enjoyed this dinner at Bocanova.

It's such a treat to go out for a nice dinner. So, if you have kids, don't wait as long as we did for a date night. Treat yourself out for a nice meal, it's such a nice way to decompress, reconnect with your partner, and be refreshed to start the family juggle of tasks all over again until your next date night.


  1. Um, how long did you wait? Mine are 14 & 12 and I still can't relax going out without them. Pathetic, I know.

  2. Mine are 3 1/2 yr old twins and a 5 1/2 yr old. I can count on one hand the times we've gone out without them. I guess we'll always have worries ;)
