Easy Dinner for Two???

OK, first of, I'm not that great of a cook. I can, I just don't do it very often.

I'm planning on making dinner for Jessie and I tomorrow (Thursday) night and I need some options. The requirements for the meal are:

1) Has to be pretty easy to make
2) Ingredient simplicity is a MUST (nothing that is difficult to find in a local market)
3) Has to be good tasting.
4) I'm not an onion fan, so if I can do it w/out onions, that would be AWESOME!!!
5) No fish. She is not in the mood for fish
6) Hamburger Helper is not going to cut it this time. She hates it when I "Make Dinner" out of a box.
7) Pastas are always good, but no baked ziti, I already did that.
8) I need a 100% recipe. Ingredient list and the who how to.

So, if you've got anything, please let me know. I'll end up going to the store in the afternoon. Sorry it's a little late notice.

3 med. carrots, cut in chunks
3 potatoes, quartered
1/2 head cauliflower, divided into flowerettes
1 Polish sausage ring

Steam vegetables over gently boiling water until tender or nearly so. Place Polish sausage ring on top of vegetables and steam until sausage is heated through, 5-10 minutes. Remove onto platter and serve hot. Add a cole slaw salad and Jello dessert for a satisfying meal.

Chicken or pork over rice with mushroom soup.

Brown a couple chicken breasts or pork in a frying pan.

When the meat is just about done add a small can of mushroom soup with about half the amount of water you would add if you were using it for soup.

Make a bag or 2 or rice and top it with the mushroom/meat mix.

I think this is on the soup can label if you look

MRE's......can't go wrong and the chicks dig 'em.

For a romantic setting I'd recommend the chicken and rice with just 1/2 the little bottle of Tabasco, gently warmed in an immersion heater and two mess kit tin's of a nice blend of hot chocolate. You'll have her in the mummy bag in no time - trust me.

4-Cheese Baked Macaroni

My fiance makes this on a Monday night to start the week off right! Great taste and easy to make, just choose a side veggie to serve with it and you're set. Ingredients and Directions as follows:


1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 2/3 cups skim milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3/4cup shredded Swiss cheese
3 ounces low fat processed cheese (Velveeta)
6 cups cooked macaroni (about 3 cups uncooked)
1/4 tsp salt
cooking spray
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
1 tbsp margarine, or butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place flour in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk or fork until blended. Cook for about 8 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly. Add cheeses and cook for about 3 minutes or until cheese has melted, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and add macaroni and salt, mixing until well blended. Spoon mixture into a medium-sized casserole dish coated with cooking spray. Set aside. In a small bowl, mix breadcrumbs and margarine, or butter, until well blended. Sprinkle over macaroni mixture and bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly.


Good luck with dinner plans!

Thanks Y'all. I'll be heading to the store at around 4 or 5 to get the stuff for whatever I come up with. (She's not getting here till 9:30, so I have some time.) Keep 'em coming.
