Treat yourself and your date - Date Night with food demonstrations and tastings!
Posted 07 - 21 - 2015

Whether it’s a first date or an anniversary surprise for your bride, going on dates doesn't always have to mean draining your wallet at fancy restaurants. There are plenty of affordable and entertaining dates you can go on with your beloved. After all, it's really the time you spend  with your sweetheart that matters and not how much you're spending on the dates.  But dating for long-term couples comes with its own new his and her matching set of pressures, especially when kids are in the picture. You no longer have the time to make sure you have five minutes together without interruption, let alone set aside an entire evening to dote on each other. So when the stars are finally aligned — you've cleared your calendars, you've found someone notfeatured on America's Most Wanted to look after the kids — you want the evening to be perfect, which practically begs for a Murphy's Law moment.  Don't sweat it!  We’ve done the work for you.  Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Sabor A Pasion are hosting “Date Night with Dinner Tonight” that you don’t want to miss!

Samples of the recipes will be available for tasting by the entire audience.   Each participant will receive a flash drive copy of the 52 page Dinner Tonight Cookbook and door prizes will be given throughout the evening.  Jessica Theimer, RDN, LD Program Coordinator for Dinner Tonight! will be on hand to demonstrate new and innovative kitchen gadgets that are sure to make a couples dinner more fun.
