Can you share anything about his and your likes and dietary guidelines? Are either of you veggie? Is he a meat and potatoes guy?

serioius, make him some nice pasta, and as a starter, slice some mozarella and tomato’s, stack them (so a slice of tomato with a slice of mozarella on top) with some olive oil over it

Stir-fry is easy. You can make it with veggies, tofu, shrimp, chicken etc. You can use noodles or rice. And the sauces you can use or real diverse too. I had noodles with peanut sauce, tofu and green beans and carrots for lunch. It took me no more than 20 minutes to make and was delicious.

Well he is a meat eater whereas I am not. He likes pretty much any kind of meat. His favorite is steak but I wanted to get away from that, and go fro something new. He loves veggies though too, as long as they are the side and not the main coarse lol.

Spell Check! Making* Just caught that. =]

When they say that “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” they don’t mean that it has to be good. It just has to be filling and he didn’t have to cook it. At least that is how it is for me.

I would go with spaghetti and garlic bread. And I am only saying that because that is probably what I will have for dinner.

Make homemade hamburgers. My ex loved them and they are super easy. All you have to do is cook the hamburger patties. The rest is just slicing tomatoes, onions (if you like them…yuk), tearing lettuce, cut some avocados (tasty on a burger), melt some cheese on the patties and make it a cheeseburger, then just leave out some mustard, mayo, and ketchup – you’re set. =]

Another way to go is to make pasta and meatballs. You bake the meatballs, and then add them to his portion of the sauce.

Ground beef, turkey, pork or a mixture
salt and pepper to taste
very fine breadcrumbs
minced garlic and onion
slivers of fresh basil
parmesan cheese

Roll into small balls. Bake in 375 degree oven about 20 minutes. Drain. (I bake mine on a rack and avoid that step.)

1/2 med onion diced
1/2 red bell pepper in julienne strips
3 cloves garlic, minced
olive oil
1/4 lb. crimini mushrooms, sliced
1/2 small zucchini, julienned
2 TBsps tomato paste (from a tube)
1 Can diced tomatoes (and liquid)
1/2 c. water
salt and pepper to taste
1/8–1/4 c.Fresh basil leaves (roll up together and sliver)

Saute veggies in olive oil starting with onion and pepper. After 3 min., add mushrooms and zucchini. Cook garlic last (only 30 secs. so it does not become bitter). Add tomatoes, tomato paste, water and simmer. Add basil.

You may want to toast some pine nuts and sprinkle on as you serve it over your favorite pasta. I also lke fresh grated parmesan cheese. A salad and Italian bread make good accompaniments.

Have a nice dinner.

as long as you are naked, you could probably feed him anything you want.

Rice, preferably basmati. And…
Chicken Shish Kebab:
Skewer it: Chicken breast chunk>White onion chunk>Red bell pepper chunk>White onion chunk>Chicken breast chunk>Pineapple chunk>Chicken breast chunk>White onion chunk…continue till the skewer is full. Then soak it in Kikkoman’s Teriyaki sauce.
Broil it, basting at intervals with teriyaki sauce, turning at the same time for uniformity.
Pair with white wine, or pilsener, or his favorite cocktail.
First dinners aren’t about quantity, rather- company.
He’s coming over for you, not food. (Plus, you can’t screw up alcohol.)
