Date night became date nights this week. Autumn, Collin, and Abigail all went to participate in a dance festival which left Verne and me all alone in the house for two whole nights, and the most of a third!
It's quiet with everyone being gone, but it's been so nice to spend this rare time enjoying one another one on one.
Verne offered to take me out for dinner all three nights that the kids would be gone, but I rather enjoy cooking and eating at home. I set a pretty table tonight, and made a new, delicious meal. Cooking Light's Pan-Seared Scallops with Bacon and Spinach was a perfectly delicious light-tasting meal. I baked a fresh, crusty boule and cookies for dessert.
Tomorrow night he's taking me out for pizza!
