We started our date night by making cookies, something I have been wanting to do with Darren for awhile (several of those who link up to Project 52 have mentioned doing it and it sounded so fun!). We made yummy oatmeal choc. chip cookies and I was reminded how much I enjoy cooking in the kitchen with Darren. It is nice to be working closely together and completing a project.
While the batches were cooking we watched The Big Bang Theory (I know, it seems to creep into our date nights often, but we both love it so we might as well watch it together). Darren has hooked the tv up to his computer, so we can play computer games using the big tv screen, so we decided to try our hand at a few games. Darren said he knew how to play Spider Solitaire, but after started the game, it became quite apparent that he really didn't remember. So we had a great time using trial and error to figure out the rules. And of course, once we figured it out we had to keep playing to try and win. After our date had run much longer than planned we finally gave up and called it quits. All in all, it was a fun time spent working together on the cookies and the game.
