Dinner for Two

What better is there than to come home and cook a lovely dinner together with the partner? Especially during these cold and dark winter days, there is nothing I appreciate more than spending some quality time together. Quality time can simply be sitting together on the couch, or cooking together. I go out for lunch almost everyday and sometimes for dinners, too.
