It probably comes as a bit of a shock when you realise that neither you nor your partner has an appointment that night. You will be able to spend some time together, at home, in total peace.
How long has it been since you enjoyed that luxury together?
Imagine sitting at home, curled up together on the couch, glass of wine in hand and music playing in the background…
It could be romantic and it will certainly be restful. As a busy professional couple you need to treat these rare times together as precious and not let anything interrupt them.
Turn off your mobiles. Unplug your landline. Turn off the computers. Turn off the TV.
Let nothing come between you and your partner for the night.
Time alone together is rare and the last thing you want to do is to spend hours in the kitchen cooking the evening meal, but there is something so routine about ordering takeaway that it doesn’t fit the mood of the night.
All you need is some carefully selected canned food stocked in your pantry and you can whip up something simple like this Thai Style Salmon & Noodles from John West.
Heat oil in a saucepan, add ginger, lemon grass and chilli; stir-fry for 1-2 minutes.
Add frozen Birds Eye Garden Peas or Sliced Beans, drained John West Red Salmon and coconut milk; cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir in cooked noodles, heat through for a further 1-2 minutes and serve.
Canned salmon and coconut milk, noodles in the pantry, frozen vegetables in the freezer and jars or tubes of herbs in the fridge – that’s all you need.
