Romantic Easy Dinners

I need help. I want to make dinner and suprise my husband on his birthday. The only issue is that he has to work late. I want to make some thing that is easy to transport, but not a casserole type dinner,we eat way too many of those. He has an hour break and if I time it right we can have the whole hour. We have been having trouble lately and I would like to make it as romantic as possible. Any suggestions you can give would be great.

yay! Glad it went well. Chicken salad sounds like the perfect office picnic meal. And I'm happy that he was able to get off work before midnight as well. *grin*

He really likes chicken salad so I made one that he loves. That was easy enought to transport and he loved it. I brought strawberries and a few other small things that he likes. I felt like a school girl again. It was great! I was so happy that we could have a few minutes alone without too many interuptions.

Thank you everyone for you ideas. I surprised him and he was very happy. We had a picnic dinner with candles and soft music in his office. It was very nice. He was able to get out before midnight came home and surprised me with flowers and a bottle of wine.

Thanks

Hmmm what about sparkling cider like Jan suggested or maybe something like gingerale or sprite or something with a coupon for wine when he comes home?

Thank you for all of the ideas. I think the blanket and strawberries will help. We will have to pass on the wine, as he is do an install and if it is messed up, that would put a little stress on things with out a job.

Thank you

Well - what are some of his favorite foods? If you are going to bring something that needs to stay warm either try using a pyrex portable or wrap the dish in foil and then in a thick towel.

Bring along the blanket and picnic basket and how about some candels? Can you have dinner outside? Perhaps bring a portable grill and cook right there? Sort of like a tailgate picnic but much more romantic. Also how about a portable CD player and some nice romantic music.

giggle. I do have a tendency to forget about dessert. I'm not a big dessert person - I usually have fruit. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm strawberries.....
