I am cooking some grandious meal for a friend of mine and I want to impress. What food items should I include in the menu?

I was thinking of doing a shish kabob with pork and chicken that was marinated and peppers and Vidalia onions with a dipping sauce for a bit of it.

But what kind of sauce?

Then maybe a salad to start with. Any ideas on a dressing or will just EVOO work drizzled on?

Hmm, maybe a a sliced ribeye steak with baked red potatoes drizzled with EVOO and seasoned.

Damn it! Anyone have any ideas?

I want many things in the menu, like an appetizer or salad, main course, something else, and maybe a dessert. Too bad desserts take too long to make (like a day and a half) :(

Anyone?

What about a nice Caesar salad to start, a pork tentderloin roast with some borsen potatoes and fresh green beans, then you could end it with some fresh sorbet. Since the pork roast will have such a strong taste, you can even get away with a red wine if you like, perhaps something like s zinfandel or cab.

The sorbet is super easy to make as well, i've got this braun ice cream thing, you put the bowl in the freezer for like 2 days, then pour your stuff in there, turn it on and forget about it. It's done in like 30 minutes and it's delicious. You can also do it with a food processor in about 3 minutes. You make up the mixture, leaving out some (about 2/3) of the liquid (because you will already have frozen that 2/3 of the liquid) and freeze the fruit. Then put all the liquids and frozen stuff in the food processor, pulse it a few times and you've got sorbet.

yes you can, but i have certain expectations about how the night will end.
after we're done playing twister, you can go see FN, he's about an hour away from me.

married? no way! actually, me and the gf just got done with a huge fight about marriage and kids and stuff. I'm nowhere near ready for that, she agrees, but... well, anyway we got in a huge fight about it.

If you bring the gamecube and wear a cuet little maid costume, then yes it will be good enough. :drool:

not as yet, we're working up to the makeup sex. it'll be better if we let the tension build a little more. it'll be like a "sex explosion."

Leave the stick at home, but be sure to bring some rope. Asphysixation sex = :drool:

I'm not really into video games, I prefer to play on the PC over the intarwebnet. I like to shoot people.
