reclaiming the marital entertainment space--surprisingly, not a reference to sex!

Ok, so I have been charged with coming up with a list of things to do at home with my wife in the evenings after the kids are in bed, because we are too broke to hire a sitter and go out right now. What are some fun things we could do at home with our clothes on that aren't too expensive or unhealthy, in a couple of hours?

My list so far is short, and banal--watch tv, cook something, etc. We like to do a lot of outdoorsy stuff, but our list of inside things is almost blank.
It is perhaps an indicator of something I don't want to think about that I actually have to ask random strangers for help with this. Over the last decade, we have kind of forgotten how to have fun together, I suppose. Most of our conversations are about money and the kids. Ouch. I have become a cliche.
I am intentionally leaving out a list of our interests, because I don't want to limit the possible suggestions or cramp the brainstorming.
Inviting over others is not a great option, because her standards of housecleaning dictate *lots* of preparation (and stress) before anyone can visit, and we don't want to wake up the kids.
