Your First Dinner-Date Menu?

Following on from hollisterb's post about cooking for a date, I'm wondering what forum members had prepared for the first dinner-date for that person who is now their permanent partner (husband, wife, significant other)

I still recall what I prepared for Mrs TD (back when she was still Ms W)

Starter: Insalata Caprese (tomato, basil and buffalo mozzarella salad drizilled with a balsamic dressing)

Entrée: Grilled lamb chops, buttered new potatoes, minted peas

Pudding: English trifle

She must have found it (and me) acceptable as we are now together for over 20 years

Re: Your First Dinner-Date Menu?

Poor Mr. Meisie. When we first met I could not cook at all so I never cooked for him. Since moving here, I had to learn how to cook (lack of take away and good ready made foods) and it Has since became a passion of mine.
His favorite food is Indian (I'm sure he has Indian blood in him somewhere) and I love cooking different Indian dishes for him now.

As I recall, it was a Thanksgiving turkey (first (late) wife).

Current wife, we took a motorcycle trip to Calice Ligure, and all I brought to eat was 5kg of various chiles from the garden (mainly Habaneros and such).

Homemade chicken soup. He'd caught my cold, seemed like the least I could do.

I made homemade tomato soup, Filet Steak with Bearnaise sauce, then chocolate cake with ice cream for dessert - Little did I know at the time my now other half didn't like tomato soup (she never said a thing)

Re: Your First Dinner-Date Menu?

I cooked mousakka the first time my now fiance came over. It must have been good because that was on the third date and techically that is still going on
