    i just google recipes, if you have enough time make a practice one first. simple stuff with spices have a better chance of coming out good.

    idk, im not good with food either, but last time i was at someone's house he made me cube steak with garlic and something typical on it and that was delicious. just pick a meat than add w/e veg. and grain goes with that well. unless you're vegetarian, i'm no good with that.

    Rawrly saidI mean, I could Google a recipe for anything, but what? I have a hard enough time picking out food for myself on a menu, let alone planning a dinner that is supposed to end VERY well icon_sad.gif


    Start the dinner with sex. Then, whatever you end up eating will go very well.

    Sex before dinner is generally much more comfortable and satisfying anyway.

    Well the only thing I know how to make well is pork ribs. They take 3 hours to make but they're juicy, they fall off of the bone, and they just look great. So here's how to make them:

    Lay foil in a 3inch deep pan (or whatever you have). Then put down however many ribs you want. Just sprinkle on whatever spices you have (I keep it simple with salt, pepper, onion powder, pork rub, and meat tenderizer. Oh, and throw on some diced onions if you'd like). Fold up the sides of the foil over the meat so it looks like a little package, and most of the work is already done.

    Now just add an inch of water to the pan so the meat doesn't dry up (make sure none gets into the foil or the flavor will be thin and watery). Place in the oven at 200 degrees for an hour and 45 minutes. Then pull it out and pour honey barbeque sauce over them, make sure the water level is the same as when you started, raise the heat to 300 degrees for 30 minutes. Finally, check on the water level again, throw on some more sauce, raise the temperature to 350, and wait 35 minutes. Then pull it out, add more sauce if you want, and enjoy!

    I'm hungry; I'm going to go make those ribs now.

    A chicken anything is usually good. Do chicken, some vegetables and brown rice and maybe a sweet potato. icon_biggrin.gif

    Something easy or something healthy?

    Anywho here's a very simple recipe that my mom begs me to make whenever I go home. I tend to over cook, so this should make enough for left overs =)

    1 lb lean ground beef (or turkey)
    2 15 oz cans chili beans, drained (I usually grab one hot and one medium)
    a few pieces of green onion
    1/4 onion (I prefer sweet yellow), chopped
    1/2 bell pepper, chopped
    3 cloves minced garlic
    shredded cheddar cheese
    a few baked potatoes
    chili powder to taste
    salt and pepper to taste

    Bake the potatoes in the oven as you would normally

    Brown the beef/turkey over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic for flavor while the beef browns. After the meat is done, plop in the beans and bell pepper. Throw in the chili powder, salt, and pepper. That's pretty much it. Sometimes I add jalapeno, tomatoes, and/or mushrooms. You can also add in some other seasonings like basil or parsley. Fresh would be better. You can also add in some Tabasco sauce if it isn't hot enough for ya.

    Cook the chili on medium heat for about 20-30 minutes, longer won't hurt as long as you watch the heat.

    Cut the potato in half, cover both sides with chili and garnish with cheese and green onion. Done!

    It should look something like this (this person added sour cream as well):

    Why not order something "take out" from a local restaurant, have it delivered just BEFORE he gets there, make a mess in the kitchen and tell him you slaved over a hot stove all day...just for HIM ??? ..icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    Get one of those "skillet meals" from the grocer's freezer. All you have to do is toss it on the skillet for 10 mins. They turn out pretty good. Can't mess up there.

    The things I always think about:

    How the food is eaten- Chicken can be messy, but if it is cut up much easier. I however am very picky when it comes to someone preparing chicken meat for meicon_sad.gif
    -If you cook pork/beef it could come out tough. This creates another dilemma while eating/chewing.
    -I would stick with fish (specifically salmon), but not everyone likes fish.
    -Pasta is fine, but generally people don't know how to properly eat pasta. Then they just make a fool of themselves.

    I suppose I could ramble on more, but I would just see if he likes fish.
    You can then just have a salad with fishicon_smile.gif easy and leaves you hungry enough for dick later.

    If he likes fish, this is a wicked simple thing to make and comes out pretty well.

    Let salmon filets sit for several hours in the fridge in a marinade of maple syrup (the real deal, not some Aunt Jemima crap). Grill/broil to taste, periodically basting the fish with leftover marinade.

    I also add tarragon to my marinade but that's 'cause I'm freakily in love with that combo, but I've been told it's an unusual one. I think it comes out great. icon_smile.gif

    Rawrly said...but I don't know how to cook! Anyone have any ideas for a killer home-cooked meal? I can make potato and leek soup and garlic bread and that's about it but I don't have a main course!

    In your area does your supermarket have rotisserie chicken? Buy one of those about 2 hours before your dinner. They're precooked and very inexpensive. You can keep it warn on low setting in your oven. Then do baked potatoes and some vegetables, maybe peas or corn. I can also tell you how to do those super-simple, if you have a microwave. Just e-mail me. Buy a bag of mixed salad greens, and some Italian dressing, perhaps also a ranch & French to provide him a choice.

    I have a great chicken picatta recipe. I do it by eyeballing it so I never measured anything.

    When making a recipe for the first time and serving it to others, be sure to have a backup plan!

    Do something kinda cute and romantic:

    Have a picnic!
    Place a blanket on the floor in your living room.

    I'm sure you can handle hot dogs or hamburgers.
    Buy some ready made salad at the deli (potato salad, macaroni salad), pasta salad
    A bag of really good chips
    A good bottle of wine (if you drink)

    For dessert: Chocolate covered strawberries (store bought), or you can make S'mores in the kitchen (Google for the recipe . . it's easy)

    DO NOT SERVE THE FOOD IN THE CONTAINERS IT CAME IN! Transfer the store bought to whatever bowls or dishes you have on hand.

    Dude, whatever you do will be fantastic. Remember, it's about you and him - not the food. Just remember to breathe!

    Trader Joe's has a lot of good stuff that can easily be made in minutes.
    Simple instructions on the "kit".

    Good desserts, too.


    Or just get some fish fillets and broil them with butter and some spices.
    (But not everyone likes fish.)


    Camfer is right, too, that if this isn't something you've done before or which isn't your forte - i.e. there's a chance that you'll burn everything or worse - you want to have a backup plan.

    One option: "Sorry, honey, I burnt dinner... do you want to start with dessert and then go to Denny's?"
