Welcome to our Happy Friday Night!
Each Friday I try to make a cocktail and appetizer for my husband and me to enjoy after the kids go to bed. It's a fun night to look forward to and a lot less chaotic and expensive than going out for the evening (of course we still do that from time to time!).
steamed crab legs
I stopped by a local seafood restaurant and picked up a couple of pounds of snow crab legs. All I needed to do when I got home was to add a little clarified butter.
Our cocktail is basically a cosmopolitan, but made with white cranberry juice. I made it by mixing 1:1 ratios of citrus vodka, triple sec, and white cranberry juice and then a good squeeze of lime. Shake with ice, strain into a martini glass, and garnish with an orange twist.
Last week, Kerri from Elle Belle's Bows shared a wonderful spinach artichoke dip she made in line with celebrating her husband's Superbowl love. I hope you can visit her blog!
Many of you have shared that you have a similar date night routine. Please join the party and share what you do to nurture your marriage (keep it PG please). It can be a recipe you enjoy, a special trip, movie time, a devotional, or whatever you feel appropriate. I can't wait to see what inspirational ideas you have.
Happy Friday Night!
