PLEASE.. help me plan a simple dinner for tonight!

gourmetgal1 | Aug 1, 2007 09:39 AM

I want to cook dinner for my boyfriend and I tonight and I am having trouble thinking of a fresh and creative meal plan. I want to make something relatively simple with only a few ingredients, but really good. I was thinking maybe steamed artichokes and chicken (maybe just pounded, skinless, boneless filets dipped in egg mixture, flour and then sauteed, topped with lemon?). Maybe some really good fruit for dessert or a peach crumble sort of thing? Is this really boring? Does anyone have any better ideas or recipes? It doesn't need to be complicated, but I am getting bored of making the same things every night!!!! (plain sauteed chicken with either tomato and cucumber on the side or a salad of spinach, nuts, strawberries or dried cranberries and goat cheese.) My boyfriend has been trying to eat healthy which is making it hard for me to think outside of the box. Please help me! Does anyone have any other ideas, recipes or suggestions? I won't have a ton of time, but I want to change up our routine! Thank you!!
