Mystery Dinner Date Night

Dating while in school is often nonexistent, especially once your married.  A few months ago Nathan and I realized that we needed to get back to dating each other, and make it a habit before we bring kids into this crazy life.  We took turns planning dates and it lasted a few month, until last semester. My final semester was crazy and I was caught up in a whirlwind of "to dos' before I could get that silly piece of paper that tells employers they should hire me.  We would occasionally find a night where we could go out to eat, but nothing creative just dinner.  Nathan started school last week and I decided to brave my incredibly hot kitchen and make him a nice dinner.  Then I decided to get crazy and turn it into a mystery dinner.  

Here's the menu:
I let Nathan choose my dinner as well, so that I couldn't cheat. 

Appetizer Course 
Nathan got Pucker's Power (Brazilian Lemonade), I Don't Wanna be a Duck (Ranch Chicken), and Two Paths One Choice (Fork)
I got Pucker's Power (Brazilian Lemonade), Fluffy Pillows (Roll), and Slippery When Wet (Ice Cream)

Main Course
Nathan got Indians Delight (Corn on the Cob), Buccaneer's Pal (Knife), Mini Digger (Spoon) and Shoemaker's Temptation (Nectarine Cobbler)
I got Don't Wanna Be a Duck (Ranch Chicken), Buccaneer's Pal (Knife), Two Paths One Choice (Fork), and Shoemaker's Temptation (Nectarine Cobbler)
Nathan chose well and got Fluffy Pillows (Roll), Sleepy Relative (Napkin) and Slippery When Wet (Ice Cream)
I got Indian's Delight (Corn), Mini Digger (Spoon) and Sleepy Relative (Napkin)
It was so much fun seeing what we each got and trying to eat without the correct utensils. We both had to eat ice cream with our hands and I was very grateful I received a napkin with my corn.

It was a silly simple date night, but we both had fun and it was different from anything we've ever done before :)
