Thank you Decoy for sponsoring this post and elevating our night!
Who says you have to go out to have a romantic date night We have been doing date nights at home for a while now, for us thursday night is always date night! We love to enjoy some quality time over dinner with some delicious Decoy wine once the kids are sleeping. It’s usually followed by some games or an episode of friends/ property brothers/ Beat Bobby flay!
I like to go the extra mile and create a nice ambiance with flowers, candles, and a good meal. It’s our way of keeping things romantic and spicy in our relationship! I like to keep it simple but still make it feel extra special. I always try to do a different cheese board, with different cheeses and accompaniments.
The menu I chose today was a simple cheese board, truffled arugula salad, and my Cheesy Arrabiata Spaghetti. The Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 Napa Valley limited edition pairs perfectly with this menu. I was so pleasantly surprised with how great it tasted. It complimented the food really well. Decoy Limited is the best of the best from Decoy cellar and has set a delicious new benchmark for the Decoy Portfolio. Click here to find your Decoy limited in stores!
Here is how I made the truffled arugula salad:
- Olive oil
- Truffle oil
- Black Pepper
- Garlic powder
- Lemon juice
- Shaved parmesan cheese
Toss all those ingredients together and voila! It’s very simple but the truffle oil gives it that OMPH!!
On my cheeseboard: crackers, berries, Pepper Jack goat cheese, Parmesan, and Dill Fontina. You can add nuts, olives, your favorite snacks, grapes, jams, the options are endless!!
Now for some of our favorite games to play: Code names, Taboo, Uno, 5 second rule, desi chaat. (fair warning: it gets really competitive, play at your own risk LOL).
Also you don’t need to make it all fancy, just eat good food, drink some Decoy wine, and spend some quality time together! I hope you will take some time out and have a date night with your SO!
