Ok guys...we're girls.  We don't want burgers and brats on the first date (maybe the second, or third).  Let me give you a little advice on what we would really love.  You can use it as your own idea.  Actually, I took the idea from some friends so feel free!

This meal happens to be one of my husband's favorite meals, and takes about 15 minutes to get it from the kitchen to the table.  No stove.  No cooking.  You can do this.  I can help.  Let's review the reason we date.  We date to get to know each other, converse, share likes and dislikes.  This meal forces conversation, creativity and sharing.  I know you are thinking this sounds really touchy feely. You think this is bad?  Wait until I give you the recipe for unicorn cupcakes (joking).    

This is what you need to get at the store:

FOR SALAD - combine all ingredients in small mixing bowl


If you feel like you might die without some kind of meat at dinner, go ahead and buy prosciutto, or something similar.  I assure that you won't die, but do what you must.

Add a little Sinatra, a nice wine, and you have an impressive little evening planned! Just mix, match those scrumptious little bites, and have fun!  Think of all the benefits of not going out to dinner.  You won't feel rushed, have to wait for a table, know exactly what you are eating, and you can save some cash to splurge on a nicer bottle of wine!
