If you’re the kind of couple who believes that date nights, where you’re able to get out of the house and do something fun, is an important part of maintaining a healthy relationship then the shelter-in-place laws passed in an attempt to stop the spread of COVID-19 are cramping your style.
The good news is that you don’t have to decide between giving up your date night and staying safe. With our help, you can do both!
Instead of going out for a nice dinner, stay in, and prepare your favorite restaurant meals right in your own kitchen. All you need is an adventurous spirit, a recipe, and some high-quality ingredients.
Why Cooking is a Great Date Night Option During the Covid-19 Pandemic
Cooking is a great date night activity because it’s an engaging activity that encourages communication. There’s something about measuring and mixing ingredients that not only helps a housebound couple relax and start talking but also helps bring out everyone’s sense of humor.
One of the great things about cooking is that it’s likely both of you have a very different approach to challenges. You’ll encounter many challenges while cooking, which means that the task of creating a spectacular COVID-19 date night dinner teaches you how to compromise and work around one another’s quirks.
The more complicated the menu is, the more you’ll have to hone your teamwork skills in order to complete the project with minimal fuss. If you rarely cook together, there will be a learning curve, but once you get the hang of how to use each other’s skills to their best advantage and complete the job, you’ll find that you enjoy the process. Best of all, the teamwork skills you hone while making romantic dinners during the COVID-19 pandemic will come in handy and help you through many tough situations once that shelter-in-place order is lifted.
In these trying times, it often feels like we’re marking time and never really accomplishing everything. Making an at-home date that involves cooking is a great way to break out of that rut. You start with a pile of ingredients and finish with a lovely meal. Seeing the transformation will make you feel good about yourself.
Make sure you take lots of photos of the cooking process and finished results. You’ll have a great time sharing the images on social media and might even inspire your friends and relatives to do the same.
