    Mmm, fondue sounds good. My favorite meal would be my husband’s homemade lasagna, crusty bread dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar, caesar salad and raspberry swirl cheesecake for dessert.

    The Kippen House says:

    I want what everyone else is having! I want the fondue, the alfredo, the chicken parmigiani, the steak, the pasta (definitly pasta!!!) the pollo durango from Cafe Sabor in Logan, a great big salad with lots of Ranch, and for dessert: baked chocolate cheesecake! I think I’m putting on calories just thinking about it!

    Poulsen Family says:

    Ummm, pecan crusted mahi mahi with lemongrass butter sauce. Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my face. I have to tell you though the fondue is in close second, my husband took me for an early valentine’s date to the melting pot…so delish!

    Alicia and my boys says:

    Tempura with white rice. Pecan pie and rocky road ice cream for dessert…I know crazy mix! but, delicous!

    Megan Tea says:

    I would love, at least once, to go to a very fancy restaurant where the food is WAY overpriced and looks more like a work of art than dinner.

  10. 160
    Aaron, Vicki Tunell says:

    There are so many choices! 🙂
    Thai Red Beef Curry, Spinach Salad, Panna Cotta, maybe some chips and salsa too? I can’t decide, I love food too much 🙂

    I am going with your idea! My boyfriend and I love the Melting Pot. It’s a wonderful, romantic fondue restaurant. Have to get the chocolate peanut butter dessert fondue!

  14. 164

    noosh says:

    I couldnt decide between a really good burger and fries, strawberry shake, fried zucchini sticks, followed by a Sprinkles Red Velvet cupcake or my favorite sushi rolls with chocolate peanut butter fondue as dessert…but I think I’m going to go with the sushi since it sounds more healthy 🙂

  17. 167

    My perfect dinner would be back at the “Hotel Del Coronado” where I was able to spend two anniversary’s in a row there! I love eating outside when the weather is just perfect, and San Diego has it – by the beach with a filet minon, garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus.

  31. 181

  39. 189
    Jessica says:

    A big baked potato w/ a garden salad, steamed broccoli and bread…from Ruth Chris Steakhouse. That’s right, no meat just veggies at a steakhouse.

    BTW, check out my homemade Tortilla Soup recipe. I don’t love to cook but I like to make soups and bake. Hope you are good.

  40. 190
    Ang says:

  41. 191
    Katrina says:

    I would just love a dinner that is still hot when I sit down to eat it! (Four boys and I rarely get to do that!) I’m really not much of a red meat gal, but LOVE when we go out for a really good steak, baked sweet potato and a nice salad. Gotta have a chocolatey dessert with that!

  42. 192 says:

    to start with breaded mushrooms in a garlic cream sauce

    then steak, stuffed potatoes with steamed veggies

    dessert, chocolate fondue with chunk of cheese cake!

    and 1000 lbs heavier! 🙂

  44. 194

  45. 195
    Davis Family Ü says:

    Hi Jenny,
    My ideal dinner would be an appetizer guacamole and chips and salsa followed by fajitas… I love mexican food! I don’t even need dessert! Thanks for the chance,

  46. 196
    Brindi says:

    A Cheeseburger – something funky and falling apart in my hand. Grease is all right. Served with spicy french fries, hot from the fryer. Cold, ice cold coke from a real bottle. (Can you tell I’ve been dieting?)

  47. 197
    Cakebrain says:

    I’d have a meal at Lumiere in Vancouver…the tasting menu–and I’ll just skip the bread! that makes more room for dessert!

  48. 198
    Brandon and Camille Smithson says:

    My Dream Dinner:

    Pollo Rosa Maria, Pasta, French Bread, and for dessert… a hot fudge cake and icecream. yum! I may need to go running to burn the calories I just gained by thinking about that.

  49. 199
