Not to be disrespectful but maybe DH should make and exception and you can make him a porkchop or something to go along with meal.

Wednesday is tomorrow!! Just curious...what have you decided upon?

If you've already posted your final thoughts, I missed it. I know you posted a possible menu, but wasn't sure if it was final or not.

First off Thanks GB for clearing up some misread issues. Second I am only looking for a little friendly advice not what I should or should not feed my dh.

Ps8, thanks for asking. I decided against lobster since he has never had one and I thought to costly to not like. I am making stuffed jalapeno, cream cheese rolled in brown sugar and strawberries, guacamole. For the meal I decided to bbq. Assorted meats (chicken, sausage, ribs) corn on the cob, baked potatoes with toppings, coleslaw and fruit salad. Dessert is.....(drum roll)....Banana pudding!

Even in england these burgers are very difficult to find however I found at New York Pizza http://nype.just-eat.co.uk and the taste was amazing...

Also, there are ethnic based dishes that are really American creations. Spaghetti and meatballs comes to mind and, I think, veal or chicken Parm is in that category.

Chili con carne.

Barbecue!!!

Fried Chicken

Clam bake

Oooooh Elaine, that sounds wonderful!!! Your guest will never want to leave! And by offering an assortment of meats for your BBQ, you can be sure a favorite will be in there. Be sure and let us know how he liked it.

Again thanks everyone for your interest. Dinner was wonderful (if I do say so myself!) He loved it. Great company, great food, great time. I will say I am a little tired today. Next time we all go out (before he leaves) it will be pizza.
