His first time at my place and cooking for him

    I have been with my boyfriend a month and a half and this week is the first time he's going to my place. I often come to his apartment, but have been hesitant to bring him to mine, because I live with frat boys who keep the place a mess. I have been cleaning for the past week, and will be ready on weds. I am giving my roomates notice and will have them on their best behavior.
    I am going to cook him a nice meal. I was a culinary student and can cook. I am, however on a bodget since I am moving in may. I want suggestions on what foods would make your heart melt. I want to make chocolate souffles for dessert and ford dinner possibly chicken parm or homemade mac and cheese. He does not like wine so I may make screw drivers or should I have coke and make a desert drink?
    Since I have a bed in my room and a desk I was thinking of laying a blanket on the ground and doing a little picknick (dining room table is about to colapse).
    What do you guys think any ideas? My first time bringing my boyfriend over and my roomates aren't used to me bringing guys home so it will be interesting.

    I really like eggplant/chicken parmesan, so good!. Make sure you find out what he can and can't eat. I had a guy make some pizza handmade and he put beef in it. I couldn't eat it because, well, I can't eat beef. The picnic thing sounds cute stick with that.

    Hope things go well, good luck!

    Agreed. How about food you can feed each other, on a blanket in your room with the lights low. Then christen your bed ;)

    Feel free and let your craziness run all over the kitchen buddy, you'll love the dish that comes out and I'm sure he will love it too icon_cool.gif. But don't over plan it.

    Just make sure the frat boys are out while he is there (frat boys are usually hot and sexy and quite crazy crazy which makes them even more sexy) you dont want your bf paying them more attention than to you.

    Yeah, "bodget" and "picnick" should have been the first clue for him that the dinner should be hotdogs and a night of Jerry Springer and Budweiser.

    never heard of a culinary student solicit basic ideas for food.... anyway, no offense, but your place sounds like a hotmess. i'd picnic in the park instead

    I kinda agree with some of the others guys, over thinking has the ability to kill the mood altogether. I wouldn't put down the blanket...eat at the table with candles...Food?...don't worry about it...you're why he's coming.... not the food...Don't aim for perfection because it usually doesn't happen..Think with your heart..eat...enjoy.....

    Even though you have a lot of experience in the kitchen, maybe you could cook something together? Then, you have an experience to share and he won't (potentially) feel awkward about having some one serve him like its 1865.

    Your date-night plans are, dare I say.....Adorable!
    Any decent guy would be flattered by the efforts you're putting forth, the picnic idea is great.
    Just a thought, you might want to stick with a simple, yet impressive main dish...something "picnicy" that you can prepare ahead of time so you can focus more of your attention on your date instead of the kitchen prep.
    And how about a pitcher of Long Island Iced Tea or Bloody Marys!
    Have a great night!

    It's nice to have him at your place but I agree that it might now be the best place if you have roommates. A picnic in the park is an option if the weather is nice and then maybe dessert back at your place. If you're dead set on your place, something simple is good. Mac and Cheese sounds pretty weak for impressing someone. As a culinary student, you should be able to do a nice chicken breast, vegetable and roasted potato.

    Also, the red lines under the words you're typing mean they're misspelled, if you right click on them it will show you the correct spelling. I suggest you use it.

    It's important for your significant other to see how live and function when you are not in his presence.!..

    ..So you are a student and you live in a frat house.. Clean it up..get your roomies to show some respect on that day..and maybe not be around?..and if they are ask them to be extremely respectful.!

    ..Relax, have fun.. tell us lonely guys how it went.! icon_biggrin.gif

    The planning is clearly fun for you; that's not over-thinking, that's romantic. Either thing will be great, I bet, and unless he's a jerk, this effort you made will mean a lot to him. He's lucky to have a guy who wants to make something special for him.

    This is just how the "Gay Gene" works folks.. We are hyper-anal
    hyper analytical so we tend to over think..!!

    ..But if he is making this much effort to make a good impression..as "Family"..
    we should recognize this..and help him where needed.

    I think some of the obnoxious posts are out of jealousy...'He has a boyfriend and most of don't.'

    Cooking.. I hope you and your boyfriend have a blast.. I hope he recognizes the fact that you truly care..and I hope you two have freaky alien sex after dinner..so freaky you'll have to skip classes for a week to recover.. ..come back here and rub it in our faces!!..

    ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
    Was that so hard??? icon_confused.gif

    Right, I don't know what some of the other guys here have dated, but if someone were to do that for me, I would think it was really sweet, and be all up on him after.

    Not only did I get dinner, but I think I will have my desert too! icon_twisted.gif

    Honestly, don't ask us, ask him! Certainly, you want to avoid things he dislikes or can't eat.

    Otherwise, make recipes you have made before; you don't want to make mistakes. Make recipes that are not overly labor-intensive; you want to be in a relaxed mood to enjoy the meal and the company of your bf.

    Making fun of someone with dyslexia for mispelling two words. Wow, you must feel good about yourself.
