Venture out and take the family to an international restaurant for dinner.
If you want to keep it simple or you know the kids aren't that adventurous, go somewhere with food they are used to but take it up a notch. Take a mini-trip to Italy and get good pizza from a good Italian spot. Nothing against the chain delivery options, but stretch a little bit; at least find somewhere that you can get a glass of wine with your dinner. Pass by Taco Bell and find a Mexican restaurant where margaritas, housemade chips and salsa are an option. My kids and I have "discovered" a delicious little Chinese restaurant that we've passed by for years. Rice and some kind of chicken are a staple, but then we also peruse the menu for something new. Steamed bread is one of our new favorites; whatever seafood dish of the day is my go-to choice.
