Now, I'm not the greatest cook, but I've been told other wise. When I was in highschool, I took that sewing/ cooking class to fill the time because I figured it was an easy class. And it was...to screw around in. I ended up getting a D+ and that's when my father imformed me that, "Well, if you plan to ever get a husband, you'd better learn to do something!" So I did! And it didn't involve hanging out in any hot frigging kitchen, and was low on calories...actually burned calories!
Anyway...How about ribs? Beef or Pork. I'm pretty damned good with either one. You'd have to like my BBQ sause made with Jack Daniels and honey, but the meat itself will slide right off the bone. While the ribs are on the BBQ, (I love making the fire with the coals and shit) I'd whip up some garlic mashed potatoes, leaving the skin on, and smothered in butter and chives. I usually end up making enough for a small army, so for a starter, you'd get a garden salad mixed with herbs and spices, and topped with my version of honey mustard dressing, or red wine vinergarette. < BTW...My Red Wine dressing isn't fancy...Oil, vinegar, and a lot of friggin' wine to kick the herbs and spices in...LOL
For dessert...I'd make you take me someplace that offered Hot Chocolate Lava Cake and Vanilla cappacino which would end our lucheon date so I could get home to Pete and work off ll those calories, "doing something..."
