  • Marinate and grill chicken breasts, strawberry spinach salad with caramelized nuts & strawberries, maybe add some mandarin oranges, roasted herbed potatoes, warm chocolate molten cakes for dessert.

  • How about lamb chops? Side dish of roasted potatoes sounds good and easy. I think for dessert homemade cupcakes with some decorations of hearts or pink/red sprinkles on it.

  • shrimp cocktail

    steak, caesar salad (make yours bigger and add chicken breast to it), garlic bread.

    chocolate mousse.

    my girls want ribs - so I'm making porkribs, caesar salad, corn on the cob and chocolate mousse for dessert.

  • This is a sexy dinner that you can make, bake, and not have to spend a lot of time cooking. White Lasagna!-- A pinto gris would be fab with it.

    Serve it with a salad. You can easily make salad ahead of time. No-bake cheese cake for dessert can be made days ahead.

  • My dh and I have chicken cordon bleu in white wine sauce, usually served with a ceaser or garden salad or peas - lol, my dh likes to have some of the white wine sauce on his peas :-)

    Then we frequently have tiramisu for dessert, or chocolate dipped strawberries.

  • Another idea would be to do lots of "bite sized" things - a nice, crusty french bread that you dip in flavored oil, various olives, cheeses, some nice ham sliced very thin (picture shaved ham), bite sized pieces of fruit (mellons, berries, etc) that you could then feed each other with your fingers on the floor, picnic style, with candles and wine...
