When Cole and I first started dating over five years ago, we quickly adopted the date night ritual of cooking together. It was quite natural, really. We both liked food, cooking and, most importantly, we both liked eating. It was a no brainer to cook most of our meals together! It's a good thing that turned out, am I right?
There are a lot of dishes that come to mind when I think about the early stages of our relationship. Pasta bakes were on the menu almost once a week as were frittatas and anything with pesto in it, but the one dish that gives me serious nostalgia is stir-fry.
Because deep down we're both just a couple of nerds in love (who also enjoyed watching Archer back in the day), we didn't just make stir-fry frequently when we first starting dating, we made an event out of it which soon came to be known as Stir-Fry Day. It was a day we came to know and love and would look forward to celebrating for obvious reasons. Because, admit it, stir-fries are fun! They're also quick, easy, cheap and darn tasty.
