Crab CakesI am definitely a seafood person. I grew up eating seafood and til this day, it’s still my favorite protein to eat. Jimmy on the other hand is a red meat guy, but he does love a good crab cake. So one week, when Jimmy was having a long week at work, I decided to make crab cakes and plan a at home dinner date. So I made crab cakes from scratch, wild rice and a side salad. He loved the thought that I put into dinner and I even made dessert for us. I truly believe that married couples need to still have date nights and make their marriage a priority. We try and do at least one date a week, some weeks it doesn’t happen, but for most weeks it does.
