Project 52: Cooperative Meal Double Date

Hi there,

So I missed last week.. We’ll just have to do some extra dates ;)  It’s not that Nathan and I don’t see each other.  He works from home. He’s 20 feet away from me for most of the day!  We even do a whole lot of activities together – something at least every second day.. I just can’t always call them “dates.”

This weekend we had a double date, and it was so much fun, and so relaxing!


I spent Saturday with my bestie, Sara, shopping our little bottoms off.  Our last stop was groceries to make us and our boys a fabulous dinner.  We rushed back to her place, and the cooking began.  The boys even helped!  They chopped, they stirred, they grilled.

On the Menu:
  • Garlic Bread (multigrain and delicious)
  • Sara’s potato salad
  • Shauna’s garden salad with pear, grapes, walnuts, craisins and a honey citrus vinaigrette
  • char grilled chicken with an herb glaze and another with a honey bbq sauce
  • caramelized onions and mushrooms
  • strawberry rhubarb pie (we had to buy this one pre-made)
  • sangria
  • rosé


Our fabulous dinner was followed by a fun wordy game called Buzzword.

This was definitely a date I’d do again and again.

About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.
