Dinner and a Movie
I’m not a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Sunday kind of person. Saturdays work well in my favor. I do want to put a stronger emphasis on Mondays. They suck. After I make it through Monday, I can generally make it through the rest of the week. Yesterday was Monday, today is Tuesday aka Twosday. Two for Twosday = Dinner and a Movie. It’s my reward for not shooting anyone on Monday.
I take Twosday very seriously. It’s my night to relax how I see fit. Sometimes I go out to eat before the movie starts and sometimes like today (I have much to do at home today as I’ll be away most of tomorrow), I stay in and cook one of my favorite meals and watch a movie on TV or on my Kindle Fire HDX. I have Amazon Prime and it has saved me so much money on movies and books, not to mention free shipping, that I plan to keep Prime even though it has gone up by $20 this year. I watch videos on my Kindle on a nightly basis and I’ve been known to watch it until the early morning hours. It’s the reason I became obsessed with Downton Abbey and other miniseries.
After careful consideration, I wasn’t kidding about taking MY day seriously, I’ve decided to make pizza and watch The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. While others might feel cooking is a task, to me it’s something I embrace with joy. I love to cook, it relaxes me and I love to eat. I’ve always been able to eat what I want without gaining weight until 2 years ago. I’ve had 5 extra pounds sitting on my hips for that long and I’ve resigned myself to accepting them as I refuse to give up good food.
Pizza dough should not be intimidating. You start with the dough and create anything you want. I originally found my dough recipe on the Food Network and every time I make pizza, I add different ingredients. Sometimes I’m in the mood for veggie pizza and sometimes I want all the pepperoni it can hold. I’ve included a screenshot of the dough recipe and challenge you to create your own pizza at home.
What is your ideal date night?
