Boyfriends birthday/moving in dinner

Rebeccastellato | | Jul 28, 2014 09:32 PM

For his birthday next month, my boyfriend said all he wanted was for me to make him dinner. Unfortunately at this point in time we are living in a weird combination of his parents house and the basement of the family I'm staying with so there is really no good place for me to cook said dinner. We are planning on moving in together sometime in late September- early October so it would be much easier and much more romantic for me to cook him a nice meal on our first functioning day in the apartment (and by that I mean once everything is unpacked) since it will be in our own place. However, this means I have to make something really "wow" worthy since it will be a delayed celebration of his birthday (aside from giving him his presents since he won't let me take him out for dinner) AND the first meal we will be sharing in our new place. I really, really need some help here. I am open to any type of meat or seafood used. He's not picky so I can make him anything as long as it's nice. I figured I would make a salad, a main dish, a dessert and possibly, if I'm feeling up to the challenge, an appetizer. Any and all ideas are appreciated! If it helps at all with suggestions, I am very familiar with cooking things from scratch and more complex recipes since I spent 8 years as a vegan and needed to follow some complicated recipes. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! :)
