Anniversary Dinner Menu Ideas

dinners-for-two

Happy September, everybody!  I’ve always found September to be a pretty dull month overall.  Besides Labor Day, there’s nothing exciting going on.  But there is one relatively  new holiday that I will be celebrating this month: my boyfriend’s and my 1 1/2 yr anniversary! (Yes, it’s still new enough that we celebrate the halves!)  I have decided that I want to cook a meal to celebrate- help me pick my menu after the jump!

I found the perfect collection of recipes on Recipe4Living called “Elegantly Easy Meals for You and a Significant Other.”  Elegant AND easy?  I couldn’t imagine anything better.

I picked out two meals that I like the sound of the best, so I just need help in deciding which one is best.  Here are the candidates:


Meal One:

Green Beans, Toasted Pecans and Blue Cheese: This couldn’t sound any better if it tried!  Vegetables are always better when they have delicious cheese all over them, and it sounds pretty easy to make!

Broiled Herb Butter Chicken: This meal is in and out of the oven in 15 minutes and the herb butter is bound to give it some great flavor.  And who doesn’t like chicken?

Chocolate Silk Pie: The perfect romantic and tasty dessert.  You don’t even need to bake it!

Meal Two:

Moroccan Lentil Salad: Fresh veggies, lentils, and chickpeas make this a delicious and awesomely healthy way to start the meal.

Maple-Garlic Marinated Pork Tenderloin: Grilling is probably the simplest way to cook food, so this main course would be EASY!  The combination of maple and garlic is really intriguing, too.

Crustless Cranberry Pie
: The person who added this recipe described it as “Light, super simple, and delicious dessert.  Great with vanilla ice cream.”  Enough said.

Now here’s where you come in: let me know which one you like the sound of.  I think I’m leaning towards meal #1, but I’m not sure.  They both sound yummy!

    Thanks for sharing these recipes. Maybe the Broiled Herb Butter Chicken would be a good choice. It’s easy to prepare and everybody likes chicken.
