For us there was a time when Friday night meant meeting for drinks at our favorite pub then going out for a late dinner. Eventually we eliminated the drinks before dinner and chose instead to have dinner in a nice restaurant with a glass of wine and then go to a movie. Slowly we crept into dinner out and coming home with a movie from Blockbuster.
Overtime we became less willing to wait for a table so we opted for eating at home. At first it was takeout from Ruby’s Chinese restaurant, grabbing a hot pizza from Pizza Hut, sometimes even a bag of sliders. Nothing better than coming home with takeout, getting in your sweats and curling up on the couch with takeout, chowing down while watching a good (and sometimes not so good) DVD.
To be honest……Walt and I like to cook and grill and we really do prefer our own cooking to eating out. So now we prefer to spend our Friday’s at home in our sweats with a home cooked meal, something that is easy to throw together, sometimes with a bottle of wine. We get comfy and eat while we watch a movie or one of the programs we’ve DVR’d throughout the week.
For us it’s the perfect Friday night……….no hassles, no traffic, no crowds.
