Disclosure: I have been selected by Find Your Influence to be a spokesperson for Bertolli. While I have been compensated for my time, my opinions are my own.
If there is one thing my husband and I have mastered since having kids, it’s at-home date nights! Although, we try to sneak away every now and then, most of the time we have to come up with creative ideas to do at-home date nights after the kids are in bed or even during nap time too.
One way we did that recently was with Bertolli! My husband and I headed out to create our date night in and decided to pick up the Bertolli Skillet Meal for 2! That was absolutely perfect for us, I even found one that would fit my dietary restrictions too. We decided along with our skillet meal, we would a pair our meal with a delicious salad.
Bertolli was actually an Italian brand of olive oil, but as the years went on it grew into an international brand of Italian and Mediterranean foods.
Our date night included dining like an Italian with our Mangia Moment. The great thing is right now you can win a Mangia Moment kit that is worth $150.00 just by sharing your Mangia Moment. All you have to do is share your moment with the #MangiaMoment and #Sweepstakes hashtag on your Twitter or Instagram account. For complete rules and regulations, please visit http://www.bertollimangiamoment.com/contest.
I will be personally giving away several kits to readers that enter via my giveaway link! This is a GREAT way to get started having date nights with your love or spending a night in with a good friend!
The meals themselves are so simple to prepare, my husband worked on the meal while I put together the salad and dessert. All you do is pour the contents of the bag into the skillet and warm up, then serve. It took just under 10 minutes to prepare our entire meal!
That leads me to share my 5 At-Home Date Night Tips! What would you add to the list?
- Set aside 1 Night a Week for a Date Night and Stick to It!
- Mix Up Your Date Night Ideas from Cooking Together, Dessert & Game Nights, Movie Nights, Etc.
- Get in the Kitchen together to make your meal or dessert, spending time together.
- Plan the date night after the kids go to bed if you are unable to hire a sitter.
- Just say no to electronics like your phone and social media, have an electronic-free date night!
These are the tips that we use when we plan our date nights, I’ll admit sometimes it’s very hard to do but it’s also very necessary for any relationship.
We enjoyed our dinner and recreated the same date night with a game night too a few days later! We like to do date nights weekly, lately some of my favorites include dinner then later on doing dessert and a game. Of course, movies are a must too for us.
