Here is how to pull off a romantic dinner at home:

Choose the main meal

When planning a romantic dinner at home, the main meal is most important. When I am planning a romantic dinner at home with my husband, I often have Barilla® Gluten Free Pasta on hand. You can find this brand at your local neighborhood Kroger store.

Surprise your spouse

Whether you have been married 10 years or 10 days, there is just something about being surprised. When planning that romantic dinner at home, surprise your spouse, they will love it. I know it can be hard to keep something like that on the down low, but it makes the dinner at home so much sweeter.

Start by planning the drinks

What kind of drinks will you have for your romantic dinner? Sparkling water or grape juice are both excellent choices. You can serve water if you want, but just plan on something. You will need something to help wash down the delicious meal you’re going to make for the romantic dinner.

Whether you dress up or wear your pajamas, your spouse will be happy because they are spending time with you. So, enjoy yourself and have fun with this romantic dinner at home.
