The last 3 course meal I cooked for dh (pre DC!) was;

Onion tarte tatin with goats cheese and balsamic reduction,
Beef Bourguigone with dauphinoise potatoes,
Coconut creme brulee with raspberry compote.

It's his birthday soon so I may cook it again if he's lucky!

Lovely Madame it's those kind of ideas I need, more please!

In summer I would make

Goats cheese wrapped in parma ham on salad topped with a drizzle of balsamic

Steak and salad with a peppercorn sauce

Strawberries with dark chocolate and white chocolate sauces to dip (double dipping is no problem between me and dh)

In autumn I make

Roast butternut squash with chilli lime and ginger in a winter salad

pan fried duck breast with a raspberry sauce and crisp roast potatoes

Chocolate fondant puddings

Im impressed. I like cooking but don't think I have ever cooked a three course meal for just dh and me. smile

Bling, I make them quite often- whenever dh and I eat alone in fact, I find it very boring cooking for two and to avoid saying sod it we'll order a takeaway, I can get more motivated if doing a big meal.
