What's your ideal date night? Probably something involving Oprah Winfrey, if you've got your priorities in order.

But for Oprah, who is already blessed enough to chill with herself every day, an ideal date night with longtime partner Stedman Graham is blissfully simple.

The media mogul revealed that she cooks delicious comfort food for Graham in a chat with O, The Oprah Magazine on Twitter.

She told the magazine that her Graham is easy to please:

Well, I am a really good cook.

And the wonderful thing about Stedman is in all the years that I've been cooking for him, no matter what it is — even if it's a piece of toast — like the other day I made an English muffin, and he's like, 'Where did you get this English muffin?' and I'm like, 'It's an English muffin'.

She continued:

He is delighted with anything that I make, so my favourite date night is to make him black-eyed peas and cornbread as a surprise for dinner.

And then, honey, hush.

That’s all you need. 

A little black-eyed peas and corn bread. That’s it!

Perfect date night.  

Lucky man.
