Date left when she saw what was for dinner :( Page 7 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
thats rice?? My dog's thrown up more attractive looking things than that. I dont mind healthy eating and chicken, rice and veg is something I would eat at home... but on a date I would like something more special, and no, I dont mean an expensive meal before someone decides to slate me without knowing me :)

LOL, brown rice is not dry and hard unless you prepare it like minute rice. You need to actually take the lid off the pan and stir it now and then.

Just like boneless chicken breast is not dry unless you overcook it.

VVVVV - Doesn't look like puke to me. Perhaps you could ask that to the person that wrote the blog...

From the UrbanDictionary.com definition of a macro:

Macro
A large Hoe, or a hoe with large breasts or a large ass.
" Yo Mike, check them breasts on that macro."

You can make me dinner anytime. I prefer to eat at home so I can control what goes into my food. I go out on quite a few dates, and worry about all the restaurant food - thats a good way to get fat and lazy!

my last date, I made seafood stuffed mushrooms and Penne Vodka cream pasta. Salad and garlic bread. She was impressed. And honestly not hard to make. Chicken and rice is a tad boring

Okay, y'all...I got this one. Don't know why I said y'all, I'm from St. Louis...
He was an ass, she was an ass...as someone else stated, I'm surprised they didn't bang, as they are made for each other.
This is my first visit to the forum...thanks, I'll be here all week!!!

I personally think it was rude of her and i'm not just saying this cuz i'm a guy. I've been invited for dinner at other people's houses not particularly a date and even though i wasn't a fan of what was being served i ate it anyway and was gracious about it. Now obviously i don't know the whole story here and it definitely would've helped if the OP talked with her beforehand about what she likes/dislikes. I usually always discuss my/her favorite foods while courting in case this ever arises that way if you do cook you know what to make or know what kind of restaurant to go to. I'm not a fan at all of asparagus but chicken and rice is usually a safe choice. I don't know too many people that don't like chicken and rice, man or woman. Unless of course you're a vegan.

Chicken shiskabob over rice would be a better choice. More colorfull and tastes good. I found that women really appreciate a well cooked meal whether its BBQ or indoors...

She was extremely rude and should have just eaten what she could. That you are imposing your diet regime on a guest is not a good thing to do by the same token. Lying about her weight? Had you not seen her before? If so why was she risking even going to your house? Fighting over food, how juvenile!! Maybe she sussed you are a gym junkie and as for boxing, it is a barbaric hideous pasttime.

Next.

I have to say that I see more flaw on the cook than on the guest. When you invite someone to come to your house and you are going to cook for them, it's no longer a utilitarian event but rather one where at the center is to entertain and yes, also to impress. If let's say you can't cook worth a cr ap. Get pre-cooked stuff and be done. But don't throw together some stuff that your guest are going to feel disinclined to even want to desire to eat.

So what do you do. First, learn about your guest. Women can be very picky. I've known women that will not eat red meat, only eat free range chicken or fish, or do not touch gluten, or like think sauces, or can eat anything spicy, or love spicy stuff. So ask them. Do your research, then even throw the menu at them. One of my favorite dishes for a date that I make is grilled Coho Salmon, in a Thai sauce with jalapeños, served over arugula. Some women can't handle the heat. Some have said that they will try it without the jalapeños others did not want to even venture there. Is that their fault? No. And you as the chef, as the entertainer are in control of making it a pleasant experience for your guest.

So if the OP would have talked to this woman, and gotten, the I am not eating that over the phone, then he could have asked what do you like, what can you eat. In this day and age that is a legitimate question to ask.

Now, lets say that you don't want to put the effort or time to do something right. You can always find ways to cheat it and make a huge impression. YOu could have bought a rotisserie chicken from your supermarket, then slice some pieces and add a Bruchetta sauce on top of them and shaved parmesan cheese. Then either microwave, or better yet, broiled for a few minutes. Then either serve over pasta or spinach. This is a fabulous dish. The chicken is very tasty and is usually a winner with women that are watching their weight.

If you served a salad or some fresh fruit it would have been a complete meal. I am assuming that is brown rice, that takes 45 mins to cook. although the meal looks a little bland.try some fresh herbs. I don't think i would spring asparagus on anyone most people don't like it. I would make the same thing for myself but it would look a lot different.

What she did was rude as h*ll. I have ZERO tolerance for rudeness and picky eaters and dislikes and crap like that. If some guy came over and wouldn't eat something I made because, let's say it was farm-raised or not vegan or was red meat or didn't like asparagus, or blah blah blah, he can find the door. I come from a big family and you eat what you are served, or go hungry. Now if the guy ate most of the foods I cooked but didn't care for one item, no big deal. But to say what this woman did "I'm not eating this sh.." what a rude, classless, ungrateful, selfish, ________(fill in the blank).

Manners people!


Lol; good luck with that one.

What are we Sweden?

We invade people to tell (ok, force) them to live like us; and you expect respect and manners?

You guys saying the woman was rude should really read through the thread. Not only will you get VERY different perspectives, it’s funny as hell.

i could understand if you were serving her chicken mcnuggets and cold french fries, but this is ridiculous! i would never behave in such a way. if a man takes the time to prepare a meal for you, sets the table, cleans up his house, invites you over, for christ's sake, have some appreciation! i am sorry, but i just don't get it.

Who the phuck chooses asparagus as the main veggie for guests to eat?


BBQ asparagus with the right spices kicks as&! (and I'M a veggie hater!)


When you invite someone to dinner YOU ASK THEM what they would like to eat. Hell I have gals go SHOP with me for what they want me to cook. I love to cook and I am not limited in any way as to menu choices. I cook what my GUESTS want to eat


*sigh*

I have to agree with this.

The point in a date, or even a friendly dinner, is to have your guests enjoy themselves.

This thread gets funnier and funnier.

Don’t forget:

OP:
women always lie about their weight….this leads to a huge fight….


I know I just LOVE it when a man invites me to dinner and then fights with me.


Hell I have gals go SHOP with me for what they want me to cook.


Now that’s nice. :)
