take-out with a twist

DH and I enjoy eating out. Sometimes, though, we prefer doing take-out - more relaxed, you don't have to pay the high alcohol fees, etc.

Last night we did take-out with a twist. The weather was awesome, and we really wanted to be outside near the water. So we got our take-out and went to the park. We took a cooler with a few "refreshments." We enjoyed our dinner by the river - watching the boats go by and creating a unique memory. Not just another dinner out!

Just thought I'd share in case it inspires others to try it

less stuff, more time

(48, married; DH 52. I am fully retired as of 2015 (well ok, I still work part-time but only because I love the job and have complete freedom to call off if I want to travel with hubby for work), DH will fully retire 2018 when he turns 55 to access 401K penalty-free)

Re: take-out with a twist

Good idea. I would like to do the same very much. Only problem is that DW would not like me bringing my fishin' pole.

Seriously, I'm glad you enjoyed. DW and I did this once with the inlaws. Simple burgers/fries and enjoyed it very much. Look forward to doing it again soon (w/o the inlaws) .
