What should I make for a romantic dinner?

im going to cook my hubby dinner for our anniversary but im clueless on what to make that might be special...im also considering having it be something soooo simple that my boys could make it and just be our waiters for the night...any thoughts or ideas would be great

  • Spaghetti :)

    Im serious. Well its not special, but you said your boys will be the waiters. I just think thats the cutest thing ever so it would be perfect if they serve the spaghetti :)... have some candles on the table, wear a nice dress or whatever you feel like.

    your boys serving it will be the most special moment anyway... you wont need any fancy easy food :)

  • How about shrimp alfredo? It's easy! Just thaw and saute the shrimp, cook the noodles like you spaghetti except with alfredo sauce. It's a little better than spaghetti, and just as easy, if not easier, than spaghetti to make!

    By the way, Happy Anniversary! Congrats! I hope the night goes as you want it to.

  • Chicken Cordon Blue is so easy. I have been making it for years. Pound out the chicken breasts, add a slice of swiss cheese and a slice of ham to the center of the breast. Seal with a couple of toothpicks. You can dredge in flour or not, then brown in a pan. Add some chicken boullion, and 1/2 C of water or wine. Cover and simmer 30 minutes. Remove and keep warm. Make gravy with corn starch and half and half (you can use milk, but won't be as rich). Serve with mashed potatoes. The cheese that melts out, mixed with the wine (or water) makes a nice gravy. Once you have made it once or twice you will wonder why it sounds so complicted and then you can tweak it however you like.

  • I'm trying to think of something easy and special. How about steak? with baked potato. A nice salad. A purchased fancy dessert.
