Instituting Date Night

Mark is my best friend, lover, and life partner but recently I realized that we're barely ever alone. We adore our eclectic group of friends so much that it's hard not to throw a dinner party every evening that we're not busy with our other obligations. But institute a date night? Isn't that what you do after buying a house and having 2.5 kids?

It seemed like the only way to commit to saying no just one night a week to all the other invites. The first week Mark tested out three new courses:

1. Oysters with Cilantro and Roasted Garlic
2. Toast, Brie, and a Balsamic Vinaigrette glaze
3. Roulade of Pork Tenderloin with Pomme Puree, Shitake Mushrooms and Madeira reduction

The fourth course was a trip to Jeni's and I was sold on our weekly establishment.
