I told my man I would make dinner for us, before I checked my bank account and realized it was kinda low. I can't eat anything with dairy and he eats anything. So what are some really good cheap ideas for a romantic dinner in?

Some pasta (like spaghetti, or maybe those fresh tortellini).
Some sauce (your choice)
Some meat (chicken or meatballs? Might not be needed depending on what's in the tortellini)
Some veggies (I like olives and mushrooms)
Some lettuce, croutons and dressings to make a side Caesar Salad
One of those bake it yourself baguettes.
One roast it yourself chicken (you'll have some left over with a 1.5kg chicken)
Some potatoes (normal or sweet, your choice)
Some veggies (frozen or fresh, you'll have some left over - either mixed or peas are my suggestion)
Chicken into roasting pan, start it going, chop the potatoes up, toss in some oil and salt/pepper, throw them in the pan around the chicken. Turn the potatoes every once in a while to stop them sticking to the pan, they're soaking up the chicken juice! Veggies need about 10-15 mins depending on what you've got, so make sure you have water boiling and ready.
When the chicken is done, each person gets two slices of breast and a leg if they want, along with yummy roast potatoes and some nice steamy vegetables. After dinner, strip the chicken and put it in tupperware, you can make a stew/curry/sandwiches with it.0
