    Any ideas what I can cook my boyfriend and I for dinner tonight???

    I'm no cook, unless it's a micro meal!! The only meals I can cook from scratch (well) are:

    Spag Bol
    Lasagna
    Stir Fry

    He's fed up of these...So any ideas...something not too difficult!!

    didnt we have this thread a couple of days ago?

    Get him to cook something?

    go and buy a jar of pasta bake and make that, hide the jar and he will think youve done really well.

    push the boat out; you can buy chicken already seasoned and just stick it in the oven and served with a salad and french stick... wash down with a medium sweet with wine.

    enjoy ;-)

    steak with homemade wedges?

    to make big fat wedges

    cut in half lengthwise, then lengthwise again
    boil them first a little as they will big thick for about 5 mins
    place them on a oven tray, drizzled with oil (any oil will do)
    when they are nearly done dust with cajun spice

    or chuck them all in a mixing bowl add oil and cajun spice and mix up with your hands then place on oven tray and cook that way

    gas mark 6, 20-25 mins

    Steak

    Fry the steak in a non stick griddle pan/frying pan
    you can cook this after you have dusted the wedges as steak cooks quickly
    lightly dust with cajun spice/thow in some diced onion/peppers

    job done :thumbsup:

    serve with peppercorn sauce on the side with a side salad:thumbsup:

    just use packet peppercorn sauce very easy then x

    salad on toast

    Got go with Steak. Easiest thing to cook.

    I would grill it slowly. Just ask him how he likes it. You can't undercook it thats for sure.

    If the missus ever learned how to cook and cooked me that I would be very pleased.

    Some thick cut Chips and some onion rings, maybe some peas and some chunky bread.

    always one to lower the tone yuk lol

    Can't beat a nice spag bog made with sacla red pesto, and red wine!
    Bang in some onions and muchrooms for good measure an all!

    Sweet!

    Brown off mince and onions, bash in red pesto, cook for a minute or so then add red wine and cook for a further minute or so then mushrooms and simmer for 20 mins!

    Bit of ciabatta bread covered in melted butter and garlic in the grill to go with it!

    I'm bleeding starving now!

    Chicken wrapped in bacon served with chips or mash or whatever covered in peppercorn sauce is also blinding.
    If your gonna do steak get a nice fillet so he won't have to eat it with his hands!

    Just go to M&S

    Starving now.

    Not a lot in today had some brocolli and stilton soup with thick bread.

    Still hungry obviously but don't think I will be eating that again.

    Get the 4p curry sauce from Sainsburys and have that with chips....

    Doesn't matter what it tastes like as you'll prob be too busy to eat it lol
