July 18th is our 8th Anniversary

And I haven't figured out what to cook. I want to do something special but I don't want to go out to eat like we normally do. Any suggestions? I don't eat fish but hubby does. I want to do something special for him but I am drawing a blank. What sort of thing do you normally serve for a special occasion?

Happy Anniversary to you!!

Our 9th is on the 18th too so Paul and I will be celebrating along with you and your hubby.

You say you don't like fish.. what about clams? Steamed clams with melted butter are wonderful. Serve them with a nice green salad and some crusty French bread and you have a nice meal.

Or... how about a nice romanic picnic for two? Fruits, wine, cheeses and a chocolate dessert of some kind??

Keeping with the seafood idea, how about lobster?

We prefer baked stuffed, but anyway is great.

Any way enjoy your day.

I vote for lobster too! What sort of foods do you like? It's important that you both enjoy your dinner. If I were to make a lobster dinner it would include sides of corn on the cob and potatoe salad. If you like steak, you could roast some new red potatoes as a side dish.

Oh my... so many good ideas. I don't know why steak escaped me. My hubby is such a huge steak fan and I could make him some shrimp too!!! Yummy! Oh and the roasted potatoes... I am getting hungary! Thanks for all of the good ideas! :o) Happy anniversary to you too, pdswife! It's so amazing how many ppl have anniversaries in July!
