Food to romance by

Jeserf | Aug 2, 2007 04:11 AM

I'm looking for some of your go-to recipes that you make for the 'special person' in your life. My boyfriend and I are looking to reduce the amount of money/calories we spend in restaurants and enjoy cooking together.

The only other time we've eaten together at one of our houses, we made a pantry baked pasta with chicken, veggies, and fontina. It was pretty good, but a little heavy. It did use up a lot of things I needed to get rid of, though!

Something versatile. Something that can please me (basically a vegetarian) and him (he likes all meat). Also, it's be GREAT if the leftovers were good, too! I'm trying to convert him into a leftover-at-lunch-the-next day person :)

Sides/salads/sandwiches/pastas/soups...I'm open to anything.

I have never really spend a lot of time cooking for someone else and I don't want to force him to eat tofu and veggie burgers on the times we do eat together at home.

So tell me - what do you cook to romance your SO?
