The Perfect Date Night Dinner, Asparagus, Courgette, Chicken And Orzo Pasta

Our summer has officially started, bright early mornings and bright evenings, call for the Perfect  Date Night Dinner, Asparagus, Courgette, Chicken And Orzo Pasta.

Last week I was a little stuck for what to cook for dinner, too hot to want to be in the kitchen to tight in wanting to order out, as I had food in the fridge and I hate wasting food, it’s a serious pet peeve of mine, so I always have a menu and food prep for the week.

But as the adventurous person I am and flying somewhat solo for the night, no kid, but a spontaneous virtual date in tow for the night, and a little left over chicken, a courgette and asparagus some pasta and herbs and some lemon wedges and I set off bringing this harmonious dish together for the perfect virtual date. 

What makes this a perfect date night dish is that it’s quick and simple, but certainly packs a tasty punch, plus perfect for the whole family if not dating. 

 I’ve been on a few free dating online sites and it’s going really well even my Nan has been retired dating too and she has been on a few picnic dates and russeled up a few dishes also, so no matter your age it just goes to show, Taft you can have fun meeting new potential suitors online and going on dates virtually or safely in a public space no matter your age.

To make things more special and a little more fun, a great way to incorporate this dish into something a little more exciting is than having a cook a long virtual date. Not only do you get to have a fun evening, you can always get to see your virtual date cook and if they can’t cook by wreaking havoc in the kitchen. It’s a great bonding experience for you and the potential new suitor plus you also get to check out heir digs without actually going haha!

How fun would that be to have a virtual cook a long, plus it’s extra quality time spent together before the cook a long where you both can decide on what to cook, which for me is a great tell tell sign to see if you are going to get on.

Well what can I say it went down a treat and that is not just the food! I had a great virtual date which honestly is a lot more fun than I anticipated and something that I highly recommend especially for something new and different for those who are wanting to try free dating online, no harm in mixing it up a little.

But back to this tasty dish, I promise you guys no matter who you make this for, everyone will be wanting to come back for seconds.
