How ‘The Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond and Ladd Drummond Spend Date Night Out
Ree Drummond and her husband, Ladd Drummond, have been married for more than two decades. They do their best to make sure they spend time together so that they can stay connected. Here’s how The Pioneer Woman and Ladd spend their date nights out.
Ree Drummond’s marriage tip
How do Ree and Ladd maintain their relationship? During an interview with Parade magazine, Ree shared how they continue to keep the love alive. Ree says she and Ladd work hard at making sure their marriage stays strong. One marriage tip The Pioneer Woman tries to stick to is refraining from going to bed angry.
“Ladd and I try not to go to bed with a disagreement still pending,” says Drummond during her Parade interview. “I always make a joke that if our feet touch before we go to sleep, then everything’s fine. We have the same primary love language, which is quality time, and we do our best to have that time as much as we can at the end of the day. We try not to let that fall by the wayside because we do our best when we’re together.”
How Ree Drummond spends date night out with her husband
When Ree and Ladd have some alone time together, they have date nights. One way they like to spend date nights out is to eat a hearty steak meal and go for a drive.
“We’re going to sound so old when I say this, but it’s going to Tulsa and having a big steak dinner and beautiful wine and dessert,” Ree tells Us Weekly. “Then we almost have to be carted home! Sometimes we go for drives. Usually, we either listen to country music or ESPN radio — some kind of football analysis going on that I turn way down because it’s killing my vibe.”
How Ree and Ladd Drummond spend date night when they’re home
When Ree and Ladd spend date night at home, they usually go out to see a movie. “We love to watch movies together,” says Ree in her column. “But because the closest theater is about 50 minutes from our house, we usually only go out to see epic ones, like Aquaman or something from Marvel. Ladd and I will split a popcorn and a regular Coke—it’s the one time I drink it! (Yes, he loves Dr Pepper, but only in a can!)”
Ree Drummond’s favorite date night recipes
When it comes to Ree’s favorite recipe to make for date night, bacon-wrapped filet is at the top of her list. “It might sound cliché, but bacon-wrapped filet is hard to beat,” says Ree in her column. “Loaded crash hot potatoes are a favorite, too—I pile mine with sour cream, while Ladd sticks to cheese and bacon.”
The Accidental Country Girl also likes to add a simple meal to the mix. She enjoys a salad with ranch dressing and a “gooey” chocolate dessert on the side. Ree adds that she doesn’t want to make any “complicated” desserts.
