I don’t know about you guys, but I for one LOVE date nights. Getting a little dressed up and going out to try a new restaurant is 100% one of my favourite things to do. The only thing that’s even better? Staying in and enjoying a home cooked meal with T, especially if we’re making it together. Since we have completely different schedules, I think it’s really important to make sure we squeeze in a date night here and there, even if it’s just the simplicity of cooking a meal together. So here’s how to enjoy a night in with the help of truLOCAL:
Definitely grab a bottle of your favourite wine (or alcohol of choice) on the way home. It’ll make a routine dinner with your significant other slightly more special.
set the mood
Get a couple of candles, dim the lights, bring out your ~fancy dinnerware + china. Really go all out on the lighting and aesthetics to set the mood.
place an order with truLOCAL
A little background about truLOCAL: Since no one enjoys the mid-weekend grocery store trip that takes up way more time than you’re willing to spare, truLOCAL found a simple solution: they’re a high-end meat delivery subscription service. All their meat products are locally sourced, high-end, free run, antibiotic free and have no hormones added. You basically pick out which meats you’d like to order online and in what quantity, and the box will be delivered right to your door. Super convenient, no?
Here’s how it works: Meat products are worth a certain amount of points, and boxes have a maximum point allocation. You pick the box size and delivery frequency, choose your meat products, and after a few days you’ll see a pretty black box waiting on your doorstep.
I got the small box, and here’s what I chose:
– 3 Top Sirloin Steaks
– 1 Bacon Package
– 1 Hot Italian Sausage Package
– 1 Garlic Sausage Package
– 1 Sirloin Tip Roast
Think of all the yummy meals you could enjoy from just one box.
Literally nothing makes me happier than enjoying a meal with T, bonus points if we made said meal together. It’s an easy, efficient way to spend some time together, especially when you both have crazy schedules.
ps. With the holidays right around the corner, I wanted to share that truLOCAL has special holiday boxes – something the whole family can enjoy (or the meat lover in your life)!
