Date Nights In

We like going out for dinner, but more often then not, we stay in. For one thing it's way cheaper and for another, we both love cooking! For under $10 we get a great meal, drinks, and have fun with each other while cooking. Below is a picture of one of our recent meals. Kenny cooked the chicken and I made the green beans and rice. It was delicious, and this meal cost about $5, which is way better than $20-30 tab after eating out. At least it is for us. We rarely eat out without gift cards because we would much rather save our money and go on vacations!!

**To make great tasting rice, I melt 1 Tablespoon butter in a pot and then add 1 cup of rice and coat with the melted butter. Then I add 1/4 cup - 1/2 cup chicken broth to the rice. Once that cooks down, I repeat until the rice is tender. It is the basic recipe for risotto, and you'll never eat plain rice again!
