One of the reasons that I fell in love with Mr. How Sweet was because he was so. . .sensitive.

I had yet to realize that he had the appetite of a famished caveman.

Clearly, this meal probably won’t be cooked by a boy. It doesn’t include boxed pizza or the staple in our house – Archer Farms pasta and risotto.

But I can promise that a boy in your life will enjoy this meal.

Men like simple meals.

Starter: Pizza Dip

Main Course: Chicken Romano with Lemon Butter Sauce

Dessert: Cookies and Cream Brownies

According to Mr. How Sweet, real men don’t eat salads. Even though on our first date he ordered a grilled chicken salad without cheese and croutons alongside a mojito.

I guess I didn’t look into that too much.

    This meal is the perfect meal for men and I quote about the Chicken Romano with Lemon Butter Sauce…”this is the best meal you’ve ever made”

    My mister LOVES chicken with any sort of lemon-y sauce. I think this menu is a keeper for him! Mr. How Sweet’s first date meal is cute! Do you think he was trying to impress you?

    My hubby doesn’t have a big appetite, so a salad would fill him up– or, that’s what he says, anyway. LOL

    That chicken looks wonderful, it looks like fish. I could imagine mahi mahi or salmon taking its place. :)

    I have heard that too, that men don’t eat salad. Pssh. So weird. Although if I had my druthers (what does that expression mean anyways??) I would definitely be eating a lot more brownies than salads. :)

    It’s been almost 6 hours since I read the title of this post on twitter and I STILL have “Let’s hear it for the boy” stuck in my head. I finally had to find the song online and listen to it in its entirety so that I didn’t continue singing two lines from the chorus over and over again.

    I just thought you should know.

    Also, I’m sure Kevin Bacon would enjoy this meal, although I’m quite surprised, given Kevin’s surname, you hadn’t used a footloose reference when sharing a bacon themed meal with us.

    NOW I feel like I should go on a tangent about how, when I was 9, I watched the Footloose dance sequence on a continuous loop for a week during summer vacation, trying in vain to teach myself the dance steps, and how difficult that was back in the day before technology brought us DVDs, the internet and Youtube, and how I’d have to watch the sequence, stop the VCR, rewind, rewatch, rewind, watch again… but then I’d just be challenging Heather’s reign as the “Commenting Queen”, so I’ll just stop….

      You know, I never even thought of the Kevin Bacon correlation. But…I am not really a fan of his. :)

      it’s okay.
      you can be princess ;)

      you are pretty funny.
      you make me laugh (out loud, no less) on a daily basis.

      Commenting Jester.

    Oh my gosh… that first date bit is hilarious! :) Wish I could remember the details like that.

    Great looking food girl!

    My boyfriend is not a real man? He enjoys a salad with dinner every night. He has a weiner though….

    Plenty of men eat salad and know how to cook way beyond packaged meals. And not all of us want or have men in our lives in a romantic fashion. Despite that, this meal would be good for anyone.
