“Applebee’s at Home” Date Night


In September we continued our Date-Around-the-World tour and took a trip back to our college days in Kentucky. We pretended to visit Applebee’s, one of the favorite hot-spots for Asbury College students. I put together a menu for some Applebee’s Half-Price Appetizers and did a bunch of prep work ahead of time so things were more-or-less ready. When date time arrived, we had a 6-hour period for movies and time together during which AustinĀ  could, at any point, order from the appetizer menu, and I’d go to the kitchen to pop them in the oven or finish any prep work needed. It was fun to taste some of our old favorites (or at least something close).

Here are some ideas of things that made it onto our menu if you want to give this date night a try:

Soft Pretzel Sticks with Cheese Dip

Veggie Patch Pizza

Mozzarella Sticks and Marinara Sauce

Chips and SalsaClassic Wings with Celery Sticks and Ranch Dressing

Hamburger Sliders with a Side of French Fries

Onion Rings

Spinach and Artichoke Dip served with Fried Wonton Chips

We had chocolate lava cake for dessert… as though we were still hungry!

Our dress code for this date was “Friday night college student.” We had fun music and printed a big Applebee’s sign and had Applebee’s coasters for our drinks.

And here’s a printable PDF if you want to use the same menu we did. If you want the Word version for editing, e-mail me and I can get it to you.: Applebee’s
