HELP! 3 course meal for 2

Hi, I would like to cook my boyfriend of 3.5 years a 3 course meal tonight.

I know it's last minute but we have the house (and I have the kitchen!) to ourselves at his so I don't need to worry about people getting in the way whilst I'm cooking and will be a nice surprise for him to come home from work to!

I'm a pretty decent cook, just lacking in ideas! I was thinking maybe some kind of soup to start? I have the "new covent garden soup for every day" book if that helps. Was thinking maybe carrot and coriander or some kind of spicy parnsip soup maybe but can't think what to do about main, preferably something fancier that pasta and definately no fish.

Then maybe creme brulee or something not as stodgy as chocolate?

Thanks to anyone who can help, I'm open to lots of ideas!

It's impossible to help you when we know nothing about your BF's likes and dislikes. What's his all time favorite meal? Cook that and you can't lose.

Order Chinese and enjoy every minute. Do the home cooked meal the next time you have time alone.
