Date Night In

September 8, 2014

Friday night is usually date night for me and my guy, but during football season we tend to take it easy. We live in a university town and he owns a restaurant directly across from the football stadium, so Saturdays can be nuts for him. That’s why we decided to eat in this past weekend!

He’s an omnivore who doesn’t eat a lot of veggies or veg protein, so our favorite compromise is pasta with marinara, of course!


He always makes the pasta and sauce (he is Italian, after all), and I handle the bread. This loaf is from a local bakery, and I doctored it with olive oil, garlic, rosemary, and salt. We grew the rosemary ourselves in his backyard, and it is divine! Nothing quite like bread with fresh rosemary.

It was a nice, quiet evening – just what we both needed.

    Fresh rosemary with bread is amazing. It reminds me of Veganomicon’s rosemary focaccia.

    That meal doesn’t sound like a boring comprise to me. =)

    Rosemary on garlic bread sounds like such a good idea! 🙂

    This looks like the perfect night of carby bliss.
