Now this is a great post at a great time, I have a friend in from the Netherlands (who happens to be a chef) now also. Has has cooked a few very special dinners for us the past few nights and Sat is my turn. He has been all over the world cooking so this gets harder to make something special but I will head to the market in the morning and see what I come up with.,......

stuffed jalapeno, cream cheese rolled in brown sugar and strawberries, guacamole
Is that in a layered casserole form? I think the strawberries would look MUCH better on top than the guacamole

Another YEA for the banana pudding! Your meal sounds awesome!

Congrats! I guess the shortest way to a guy's heart is through his stomach.

The shortest way INTO a man's heart is through his stomach.

The shortest way TO a man's heart is through the rib cage.

It all depends on what you're planning to do.

You might want to go with more “local flavors” instead of US traditional since most of what is traditionally iconic here can be found elsewhere. By local flavors, I mean dishes that are special to the east coast or west cost, or mid-west, the south, the north, etc.

How about Banana Pudding for dessert....I love that stuff!
I like Keltin's ideas. But I have to add one thing to them, Boston Baked Beans, made of course with few chunks of that pork before it's pulled, for flavor, and real maple syrup. Nothing is more American, especially in the midwest/Massachusettes region than baked beans. Yum.

But then again, chili, or New England Boiled Dinner are both great as well. Ah, what the heck; go with the beans and pulled pork. I'm making pulled pork for New Years Eve, cooked on the Webber (in the snow) with apple wood chunks.

Congratulations, Elaine on acquiring a "new son". I'm sure that your cooking and hospitality and kindness (the fact that you asked for advice showed that you cared) all helped to make a great impression. Any date set yet?

We work for a British company and I can tell you from experience when serving dinner, most really enjoyed a good grilled steak. Most also like Tex-Mex (like fajitas)---don't know the availability of your ingredients are, however.

Anwyay, congratulations again. :)

Sorry, I posted before reading the entire thread. Wish I could have been here sooner. But in any case, the dinner was a huge success, from what I've read, and your meal sounded wonderful. Congrats. And congrats on the wedding proposal for your daughter.
