BW wanted to do a weekly date night, and that is somewhat hard to do when it is just the two of us. Anytime we go out or try something new, it is a date with just the two of us. And we don’t have to worry about our non-existent kids!
So how to make Date Night something special and different from just “going out?”
I had this idea a few years ago of “cooking around the world.” In my head, I would make food unique to countries all over, so I would learn more cooking skills, eat delicious (or at least different!) food, and learn more about the world around me.
We decided — well, I decided and told him I wanted to do this and he agreed 🙂 — to Cook Around the World together!
It will take around 200 weeks. There are 193 United Nations member countries, plus a few other non-member countries, plus disputed countries, such as Taiwan who China claims to own and other situations like that.
We’re going to be using Wikipedia’s list and will try to keep track of updates or changes. Many countries in similar areas may have similar foods. Hopefully it’s good food! But we will also be taking the time to learn about the country as a whole while we make their food.
So without further ado! We start tomorrow (7/24/2014)!
