For a romantic meal what would you serve?

Anyone care to share what they would serve for a romantic meal for just the two of you? Recipes would be nice also :)
After the Thanksgiving holidays I'd like to surprise hubby with a quiet evening for two.

Depends...is he home all day or does he come home drunk?? LMAO...ok ok ok

My hubby really enjoys his steak, and not often enough do I make one of his favorite dishes.....

Staeak Sandwich and Fries.....Not too elaborate but if i wanted to make it romantic JUST for him, I would chose his favorite meal and spice it up alittle.

my idea of what your hubby might like: to start, a bottle of coppola blue label merlot. smoked trout on buttered toast points, with a creamy dill sauce for appetizer. a small mesculun salad with sumpreme of oranges and red grapefruits, goat cheese, and pine nuts. a rack of rosemary lamb, salt encrusted baked potato, and evoo/butter sauteed string beans and shiitakes...

for dessert, some fresh berries, whipped cream, and a pot of earl grey, with a snifter of gran marnier... oh, and leave the can of whipped cream on the table

Yes Steak will def. be a good choice for hubby tan and middie. Think I'll through in a few of those oysters too WayneT.
Bucky.... hubby is a pretty simple kind of guy. But heck you can fix that meal for me anytime and he can just sit and watch me inhale it

Foods that you eat with your fingers are always romantic, especially if you feed each other.

Ya beat me to it. :)

Yes, anything that's eaten with your fingers is sexy. How about chocolate fondu with fruit for dessert?
