Q&A: What would you like your woman to cook you for a romantic dinner?

Question by Trippy1: What would you like your woman to cook you for a romantic dinner?
I have met a fantastic guy right before Christmas and one of the things we like about each other is we both love to cook. Tonight he is coming over for dinner and I am figuring out what to make. I asked him if he has any ideas but he is working today and couldn’t put much thought into it. So far I have made him 5 cheese baked ziti in vodka sauce with garlic bread and Christmas cookies for dessert (he made the meat balls),pot roast and sourdough bread with cheesecake (pot roast takes too long to make so he couldn’t contribute to that, showed him how to make cheesecake), marinated and grilled garlic lamb with rye beer bread and cookies for dessert (he did the grilling, you need that Y chromosome to really be good at grilling), grilled marinated chicken leg quarters with sourdough bread (again him with the grilling) but I don’t remember the dessert. Tonight I will serve cider beer cupcakes which I already made, rye beer bread made with Guinness (his favorite beer) but I can’t think of what we can make for the entree. I have salmon fillets in the freezer but that may not work well with the rye bread. I also have 5 fresh mangos. So, any suggestions? I should mention I always make my own bread from scratch. Since He has never baked I am going to make 2 more loaves of rye Guinness beer bread while he is here to show him how its done. Any input from men or women is appreciated I can run to the store and buy any meat and veg so it doesn’t have to be salmon and mangos. P.s. I am cross categorizing this in “romance and dating” to get different input.
Jenny P great idea, the corned beef would go well with the Guinness beer bread! Even a brisket would go well with it.
Nikki- fantastic idea, especially about the vegtables in soup.
Thanks again ladies. They didn’t have corned beef brisket at the store yet, and the pork roast didn’t look so good so I got a regular beef brisket and I am going to make this recipe.http://www.themeaningofpie.com/2010/05/brisket/
Again thanks a million and I will be using your suggestions in the future.

Answer by JennyP
I don’t associate salmon and the delicateness of its flavor with rye or beer. Have you considered a corned beef brisket and vegetables? I know its not st. Patricks Day yet, but I think you could pull it off. Or. perhaps a hearty stew of some kind might be something you would enjoy. Serve it with dumplings or over noodle in a pudding or even a fruit salad with a lemon cream.s or mashed potatos. You can use your mangos

What do you think? Answer below!

Q&A: Would you know any universities that some way specialize in japanese studies/literature?

Question by AIM: kirunastamell: Would you know any universities that some way specialize in japanese studies/literature?
Would you know any universities that some way or another specialize in/are important in the field of either literature, Japan(ese studies) or, ideally, both? Even more bonuspoints and cookies if they happen to have/work with some sort of exchange programme for foreign students, because there’s no way I’m going to go through the entire giant hassle of arranging everything myself without help of those kinds of institutes.

Well I am going to Florida State University so I checked out their web-site. Check out this: http://www.fsu.edu/~modlang/divisions/eastasian/jpn-new/ . It’s called “Japanese at FSU” and it shows the different majors: Elementary Japanese I and II, Business Japanese, Grammar and Syntax, Japanese Literature, Caligraphy, Short Stories and Essays, and Japanese Films, etc.

Also, they do have a International Study Abroad program in Japan. – http://www.eduers.com/studyabroad/japan/FloridaStateUniversity.htm

A lot of foreign students come to FSU and to Tallahassee.

Definitely a variety of cold and hot sandwiches, or panini. At least 2 soups that change daily. And at least 4 salads. Chef, Cobb, Caesar, and Greek.

Q&A: I want to make healthy cookies and sell them at a local coffee shop. What kind would you like?

Question by ShaMayMay: I want to make healthy cookies and sell them at a local coffee shop. What kind would you like?
They are all oatmeal and applesauce (instead of fat) based – not too sweet, I let the fruit or added stuff add the sweetness. “they dont taste healthy” (ive been told by a picky, chocoholic) Ive made Cherry Pecan (my fav), and Cherry Coconut Pecan & Date Pecan (my friend loves these). Please give me tasty ideas for sweet combinations – I know what I like and its not usually what everyone else likes.

Q&A: How much would you pay for 50 asorted homemade cookies?

holiday cookies
by afagen

Question by Teekie: How much would you pay for 50 asorted homemade cookies?
I want to make a holiday cookie tray for friend and family. I will be making 3 different kinds of cookies, all from scratch. I’m starting out with 50 to a tray, but will do more if they need it.
I don’t know how much store bought cookie trays cost.
But how much would you be willing to pay for them? I
I was thinking $ 30

Thanks!!

Answer by Kurokage
For 50 Cookies? I’d probably pay about $ 20 or so, but if you’re actually trying to make a little bit of a monetary gain out of the cookies as well as making them for family and friends, make sure you are taking into account the cost of all the supplies you are using. If you are spending around $ 25 to make the tray of 50 cookies, then selling them at $ 30 a tray would be a perfect idea. I hope I’m not insulting your intelligence, but I wasn’t sure where you were coming from with this question. I do love homemade cookies though and I’d surely pay for them. :)

Answer by Tigger
Sure they would! I’m not sure how they will roll out though, you might have to add a little more flour or refrigerate the dough before rolling…
