When Hubby was sick with appendicitis, there were so many people who helped us out. To say thank you, we made cookies for them and decided to make a date night out of it.
Instead of getting a babysitter, we let Sweet B go to town on the dishes. She was happy to play in the water by herself which gave us more one-on-one baking time.
Baking is a great last minute date. If plans don't work out, you can always find fun dates to have at home. Cooking and baking together is one of them and really gives you an opportunity to work together to create something.
Try it! Instead of spending money on a night out, spend the night in and make something delicious together!
