in the night kitchen

Last night, for date night, we decided to bake.

Standing in the kitchen, playing with eggs and sugar and flour reminded me of one of my favorite Maurice Sendak books. We love cooking together, and it’s even more fun at night, sipping wine in our jammies while the snow falls fast and thick outside….a fire in the fireplace and THIS MUSIC added to the coziness.

Jeff buttered the bread pan…

He mixed the butter and sugar together…

whisked in the eggs and mashed bananas…

I added the vanilla, flour, cocoa powder and chocolate chips and poured it in the pan…

This morning we had Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Tea Cake with our tea!

We look forward to more date nights in the night kitchen 😉

What did you do for date night this week?

    Very clever and fun post! Love the children’s book tie-in!
    Did you ever see the movie “It’s Complicated”? There is a scene where Meryl Streep and Steve Martin go to her bake shop at night and he can order anything he wants and she makes it for him. It’s soooo romantic! This reminds me of that scene.

      Thanks so much! Yes, I LOVE that movie. SO romantic and funny. The cooking scene with the croissants is the best! xoxo

    As Carolina says above – so sweet 🙂 My wife and I tend to avoid cooking together though… I can be a bit… annoying in the kitchen, and it doesn’t help that the room is narrow so we end up falling over each other 😀

      It was something we had to practice. I tend to be a little “Type A” myself 😉 hee hee
