To Dine or Not to Dine – That is the Question

by J.J. Tanner from the Dinner Club Mysteries,
      written by Linda Wiken

So, most of you know by now that even though Ty Devine can be a complete and utter annoyance, especially when he pulls his I’m-a-PI-so-let-me-handle-this schtick. However, I am not immune to his other qualities. Let’s face it, he’s one sexy guy. And we have had the occasional lip-locking situation, something I’d really like to expand on. 

But, truth be known, he scares me. Not in a physical way but the emotional kind. Like, will I get hurt if I really and truly fall for him? 

I’ll admit, it’s great having him around when I get into a sticky situation because of helping out a friend. But, where do I want this to go?

So, I’ve invited him over for dinner. Yeah, me. The person who’s more into looking at cookbooks than using them. The invitation has been given though so now I need help planning a menu.

If food is the way to a man’s heart, what should I cook?

  1. If he is a meat and potatoes kind of guy, I would make a rib-eye with fried onion strings and mashed potatoes. If not, I would make some kind of pasta with an amazing sauce (probably cream-based!), an antipasto salad and crisp garlic bread. For dessert with option #1, I'd go with chocolate cake, for #2 tiramisu or gelato ~

  2. J.J., you should make something you're confident making. If you're not confident making it, then it will not turn out well.

  3. Just about anything barbecued. Frozen grapes work well too, as does anything you can potentially feed each other. ;)
