Couples Night

Once a month, Oscar and I go to a couples get- together for some good home-cooked food, hilarious conversations, play some games  and have some fun. Each couple takes a turn hosting the dinner and each couple brings a dish from a country of origin.  We started couples dinners back in February and have even hosted a couple at our place.

I love couple’s night. Don’t get me wrong, I love our date nights too, but its also fun to hang out with our other couples who are also our really good friends. I like bonding with the girls and cutting up with the guys. We have hilarious conversations and share funny stories about each other. And of course, there’s the food…….

Below are some photos from our British couples night. All of the dishes shown below were homemade (except for the Spotted Dick)  and very tasty!

Here’s how it works:

Each couple brings a bottle of wine or beer and your favorite dish from that country of origin. Whoever is hosting the dinner can pick the county or theme.

Have each couple sign up for a dish so everyone knows who is bringing what and so that you have a couple of main dishes, a couple of appetizers, and a couple of desserts.

#1, bring dish, #2, bring booze or drinks, & #3, Get ready for some good times!Do you and your friends host couples dinners? Do you have any fun themes or ideas you would like to share? If so, please post cause I’m also looking for suggestions!!
