My younger self would have been horrified at the thought of a Friday or Saturday night spent in at home. Surely that was for old people? And parents.
Now I am a parent to a lively nearly 5 year old the thought of a night out makes me far too tired. Nights in are definitely where it’s at.
Our perfect night in would involve friends, family, a whole lot of food, a board game or two and a film with copious amounts of popcorn. Fluffy slippers optional.
We’d kick off with burgers, along with bowls of add-ins so people can customise their own to their hearts content. Sweet potato fries make a nice change to regular chips. Then out come the board games and a battle to see who reigns supreme at Connect 4 whilst munching on chocolate peanut butter rice crispy cakes.
We’re fiercely competitive so once I’ve – obviously – held on to my board game crown it’s time to calm things down a bit and stick on a film or two. Something family friendly for Izzy – anything with talking animals is always a hit – and then a more grown up option for when she’s tucked up safely in bed. There must be popcorn though – chilli and parmesan for those that prefer their popcorn to be savoury and a huge tub of chocolate and peanut butter popcorn for the rest of us.
A mug of proper hot chocolate, perhaps with a cheeky shot of rum in there, will round things off nicely before it’s time to head to bed without queuing for taxis and handing over a fortune to a babysitter.
