As busy, working parents, who doesn’t love to get out of the house and let someone serve you and, more importantly, clean up? Sometimes it’s just too difficult to make it happen – flaky or costly babysitter, you’ve been at work all week and want a nice evening at home with the love you your life. I get it and I love a nice stay-at-home date night, but you’ve gotta do it right. You can’t have a nice meal together on the sticky table with your kids mess thrown everywhere or cook some elaborate meal that has you in the kitchen all night cooking, then cleaning. The Daily Meal has come up with some great ideas for how to set the mood. Get some recipes to go with your date night after the jump…
