Looking for for new date night meal ideas? Check out this guest post on 5 Romantic meals you can try on your next date night.
Have you got a date night coming up and want to impress your partner with your culinary skills? Then it’s time to start planning what you’re going to cook. Preparing and cooking a meal for your partner is one of the most romantic things that you can do. And is often far more intimate than if you opt for a meal in a local restaurant.
Perfectly complemented with the right lighting, mood music and decor, this date night is bound to be unforgettable. But if you’re stuck as to what to make, the process might feel a little daunting. To help guide you, here is a list of 5 romantic meals that you can create:
Chicken Pasta in a White Wine Sauce
If you’re looking for a simple yet delicious date night meal then why not opt for chicken pasta in a white wine sauce. Typically using penne or linguine, it’s a recipe that’s easy to replicate at home and only requires a few ingredients – meaning that you don’t have to worry about scouring the shelves for dozens of different elements to create it.
If you’re vegetarian or just fancy ditching the chicken, you could instead opt for vegetable linguine with fresh spring vegetables in a white wine sauce.
Steak and Lobster
Alternatively, if you really want to push the boat out and impress, then why not treat them to a steak and lobster dinner? A luxurious choice, it gives you the best of both worlds. Although it’s not the easiest thing to cook, it’s bound to go down a treat and will be the perfect start to your date night.
A Picnic Basket Full of Goodies
Ok, so this isn’t really a meal that you will strictly cook – unless elements of it are technically cooked in advance. But one of the most romantic ways that you can spend a date night is enjoying homemade goodies from a picnic basket. By heading out in the late afternoon/early evening to a romantic spot, you’ll be able to spend quality time with your partner.
It’s also a more budget-friendly option, with ingredients that you could find on Weekly Circulars ahead of time.
Honey Glazed Salmon
Alternatively, if you’re looking for a delectable meal that’s not so calorie-heavy, then perhaps honey glazed salmon paired with fresh vegetables is more suitable. Still a mouth-watering option, it won’t leave either of you feeling too full yet it will still be very satisfying.
Tempting Beef Tacos
Do you both love tacos? Then why not have a fun Mexican-themed date night meal? Even though these can be messy, this tantalizing recipe is guaranteed to put a smile on your partner’s face. Paired with freshly made guacamole, sour cream and refried beans, they are a fun and unique date night meal.
So, there you go! Those are 5 romantic meals that you can cook for your next date night! The meal that you cook, of course, is up to you. And will depend on your budget and personal preferences. But whatever you settle on, you’re guaranteed a wonderful and romantic night that you will both cherish for years to come.
