Oh, what would we DO without Cheap Date Night? What a boring 10 minutes we’d have on a Monday with absolutely nothing to do!
Luckily, I’m here to save you from yourselves. First with a recipe, then some happy drinks and a tiny movie.
First up is Cherry Dump Cake. You literally dump the ingredients in the pan, toss it in the oven and voila. Dessert!
1 can Cherry Pie Filling
1 can Crushed Pineapple
1 box (about 18 Oz.) Yellow Cake Mix
1/4 cup pecans
1/2 stick Butter
Okay, here comes the fun part. Put the pie filling and pineapple (with juice!) in a 9×13 pan and mix it up. Dump the cake mix – dry – over the top. Sprinkle with the pecans. Cut the butter into slices and place over the top of the entire mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. You’re going to want to serve this warm with ice cream! Trust me!
And keeping with the “Dump” theme, you’ll love this one. Razzin Mike’s is SO easy to make!
1 bottle Mike’s hard lemonade
1 shot raspberry schnapps
Take a swig from the bottle of Mikes. Now pour the shot of raspberry schnapps into the bottle. Put your thumb over the top and turn the bottle once or twice. Enjoy.
Wasn’t that just the easiest drink evah!!??
Okay, time to get your giggle on – here’s the longest laugh ever recorded in TV history. By who else? Lucy. =)
Boy, I hope you’ve packed in your sweet tooth, because today we’re taking you on a sugar rush roller coaster!
As always cheap date nite features a quickie snack or meal, even quicker likker and a fast movie – for those times when you just don’t have hours to spare but want to have a wee bit of quick and cheap fun.
First up is our snack.
Peanut Butter Banana S’mores
Seriously? Need I say more? Well, okay, maybe the recipe for those of you already drooling. =)
30 squares of graham crackers
30 marshmallows cut in half
package of chocolate chips or Hershey bars
Ok, first line your 9X13 with aluminum foil. Lay out your 15 graham cracker squares, then top each one with a sprinkle of chocolate chips (or a few squares of chocolate), a slice of banana and two marshmallow halves. The other 15 squares, spread with peanut butter and place carefully over the top. (Peanut butter side down, but you knew that right? right.) Bake at 350 for 4-5 minutes until marshmallows puff.
Let cool and bit and dive in!!!
You’d think with a sweet treat like this, you’d need a fairly simple drink. Right? Wrong. Here’s the perfect accompaniment to our s’mores.
Peanut Butter Cup Martini
1 oz. Kahlua
1 oz. Frangelico
1 oz. Baileys
Decorate your martini glass with a few swirls of chocolate syrup and slide into the refrigerator. In a cocktail shaker, mix your liquors with about 1/4 cup of cream and a scoop of ice. You can add more later if you’d like. Now shake it baby shake it. Yeah, no one’s watching. =) Strain into your pretty glass and decorate with a few mini Reese’s peanut butter cups.
Got it? Excellent. Now let’s plop down with our goodies and watch a bit of a movie.
Here’s one I don’t remember seeing before, from the Carol Burnett show – called No Frills Airline. Poor Tim Conway…lol…..I love him!
