A Romantic Night and Dinner for Two

A Romantic Night and Dinner for Two

Romance is key to any relationship I learned yestarday. My relationship was getting frustrated and over complicated with my fiance. I remembered something she told me a long time ago, that I was not very romantic. Well 2 years later it dawns on me. Better late than never. I will go through how to setup a perfect romantic night for two. Onto it.

The key element to a Romantic Night is to surprise her (or him)! I stayed home from work with a Migrain so I could setup a great dinner for Lyndsey. I cleaned my apatment, vacuuming and everything. Once I was done cleaning I went online and Googled "homemade romantic dinner for two" and found the perfect recipie from RomanceStuck.com which led me to their Romantic Recipes for Two. Here I found the perfect recipe to make. Chicken Parmigiana. Well now I have my ingredients list for what I am going to make time to go shopping.

Shopping at Safeway
I went to Safeway to do my shopping but almost any grocery store will do. I picked up the essentials for the Chicken Parmigiana, chicken, spaghetti sauce, eggs, and of course bread crumbs. Now while you are at the store pick up 2 Tall candle sticks, candle stick holders (if need be) and a single rose of her favorite color in a vase. (I picked out a pink rose for Lyndsey). This should cost around $30 give or take. Once you have the items needed it is time to head home and cook.

Cooking the Chicken Parmigiana
1 hour and half is about how long it took to cook the Chicken Parmigiana. Allow yourself at least that much before your lover is to come home. For the list of ingredients and directions see Cooking the Chicken Parmigiana. They explain everything perfectly. Once you put the chicken into the oven, time to setup the table.

Setting up the Dinner Table
The trick to setting up the table is be very classy, but not perfect. Imperfections make you seem cute and sweet. Trust me on this one (at least for a guy doing it for a girl). I got out 2 nice plates, silverware that matched. I put the knife and spoon on left and side and the fork on the right hand side. When we sat down I said, "I hope the silverware is on correct because I used a saying my mom taught me, 'The knife protects the spoon from the fork'". She giggled, which set the mood.

After the plate was setup I put the flower in the middle with the candles on each side of the table. I knew when she was coming home, so about 10 minutes before she got home I lit the candles and turned out the lights. I was in another room and after about a minute or so went out and greated her. I received a big hug and kiss! After she came in I took the chicken out of the oven and put it on our plates and we ate.

The After Math
Well as Isaaic(sp?) Newton discovered for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Well we had a great night last night. Let me just leave it at that. I proved that it worked!

Ending Notes
If you are frustrated with your love life, do something romantic for her/him. I gurantee they will be very appreciative of the gesture at least. Just a side note, I cannot cook very well and this chicken came out AWESOME! This was a great recipe to make a perfect night.

That's so sweet. I'm trying to get my husband to be more romantic- but he is so militant. It's kind of hard, so I have to be the one to do all the romantic stuff. It helps because I love to see him happy. So I just need a little more ideas to have a romantic evening.

Posted by anonymous on November 20th, 2007

That was a good idea for a wonderful evening. Nice to know there are still some romantic guys out somewhere.

So this is gonna be a hit! I returned about three months ago from Iraq. The wierd thing s, that since I have been home, While life has been pretty chill for myself, it is the exact opposite for the girlfriend, Due to the shitty economy, her employer is laying off a good protion of thier new employees. That would be her. Now preparing for graduate school, I have been trying to figure out what to do and gettng slightly frustrated in that i didn't know what to do, until this article came along, the shopping began, one thing led to another and now I have the perfect place setting with a winner meal and dessert (mousse). Thanks for the motivation to take things one step further.

A tip for you guys; know what ethnic backround your girl is from and see if you can find a place setting from that country / culture. If you can find her's, look for something from yours. I am for the most part slavic. I lucked out big time and found a Slovak Arts and Crafts store 30 minutes from my place. You might be able to find these places around your outlet malls. Also, from a financial stand point, its a hell of alot cheaper too than going out becuase guess what, you will get multiple settings out of the place setting.
