Now that Brad and I are an “old married couple” we decided that the best way to keep things fresh is by creating at home date nights. Since subscription boxes are all of the rage these days, we decided to try out Hello Fresh meals. Enjoy today’s post on our Hello Fresh date nights, maybe you’ll want to have some of your own.
This is not a sponsored post. Today’s post is brought to you by me in hopes that you’ll give Hello Fresh a try!
Hello Fresh is a subscription box that gets delivered to your door weekly. You can pick your meals or have them picked for you. If you aren’t interested in having meals delivered, you can skip weeks.

Having at home date nights is extremely important to us. Date nights keep things fun, keeps the spark alive, and reminds us why we love each other. Hello Fresh is not only a great way to have at home date nights, but there are other benefits to our Hello Fresh date nights.
4 Benefits of our Hello Fresh Date Nights:
One benefit is Hello Fresh allows us to try new recipes and new food items. Some new items we have tried is couscous, brussel sprouts, and zucchini. We learned that really like zucchini by itself (not just in zucchini bread), brussel sprouts are delicious (especially roasted), and couscous is a great grain alternative and can be served in so many varieties. Some of our favorite meals are chicken under a zucchini blanket, lasagna baked fusilli, and pistachio crusted chicken.
The second benefit is that both Brad and I are able to cook and improve our cooking skills. Using a knife is seriously my weakness and these recipes are have taught me how to cut things correctly. Brad also helps to teach me how to properly use a knife.
Third, for a half hour while we cook, we are alone together. There aren’t any distractions such as the TV or our phones. The recipes force us to turn on all of our attention to each other. During this time, we laugh, talk about each others’ day, sip on wine, and have fun.
Hello Fresh gets delivered to our door. What’s a better benefit than that?. I love that we don’t have to go out of the house to have a nice dinner. Often times, I cook in just leggings and a t-shirt and Brad is able to keep his clothes on that he wears to work.
