Winter is upon us, and it's hard to do anything during these cold, dark days except sit on the couch and watch endless amounts of TV. If you're in a relationship, you may find it hard to even get out of the house and head to a nice restaurant for date night. So why not have date night at home? Doing so can be a fun way to change things up with a long-term partner, or can even help you impress the person you've been seeing for just a few weeks. Whether you're planning for Valentine's Day or just another Friday night, these date-night recipes—like citrusy red sangria and a quick Thai shrimp stir-fry—will help you put a lovely meal on the table for your special someone, no matter the occasion.
