Date Night – McCormicks & Schmick

*The following post is sponsored all opinions are my own*

When is the last time you dated your spouse? Thankfully I can answer that question with the following answer… last month! As many of you know, last month we celebrated our 6 year anniversary.

My personal goal is to a have a monthly date with my husband because as parents we are naturally in Mommy & Daddy mode 24/7. This month with the help of our friends at McCormick & Schmick’s we are able to have a nice relaxing HOT dinner alone.

Often times I’m so busy getting the kids settled, hands washed, food on plates, and drinks in cups that by the time I sit down my food is lukewarm.

On top of having a wonderful HOT meal, I learned that it was National Wine Day! We were able to try a 2012 Jordan Cabernet. It was dry but tasty. Next up appetizers!

JoColby enjoyed the Shrimp Kisses/ Pepper Jack Cheese/ Bacon Wrapped/ Fire Roasted Corn Salsa/ Onion Strings.

Being the Maryland girl that I am, I normally would not go for a crab cake, BUT our waiter Keith insisted that it was delicious and it was! The Fire Corn Salsa topping was a delicious bonus. Next up the main course.

JoColby had the Dry Rubbed Black Angus Bone In Rib Eye 20oz cooked MEDIUM and in his exact words ” It was cooked to perfection, melted in my mouth, no A1 needed, one of the best steaks I’ve ever had!”

I opted for the McCormick’s Trio ( Crab Cake, Grilled Shrimp and Grilled Salmon with red pepper white cheddar potatoes and broccoli) and added a side of Crab Legs! It was soooo delicious and to top it off, I added the Lobster Mashed potatoes!

I’m not sure how to explain the deliciousness of this meal but can we go back to the fact that they cut my crab legs open for me!

Everything was so delicious and then we had dessert, talk about stuffed.

We wanted to try the Strawberry Ice Cream Pie and it was superb and the granola crust was on point.

Last night we just wanted to focus on each other and enjoy a delicious meal and that mission was accomplished. Shout out to our amazing village! My SIL held us down for a few hours, I am always so grateful for our support system because being a parent is HARD.

My goal is to continue our monthly date night series. When should be go next? Thanks again to our friends at McCormick and Schmick at Crab Tree Valley Mall for the delicious meal. I want to hold each of you accountable to plan a date night with your spouse and tag me with #HWTHDate I’m looking forward to the movement. Until next time….

XO,
