    No don't cook for girls, then they expect it and ask for it when you don't want to!

    Actually this is perfect way to screw up the food.. get out of it forever....

    Lasagna, super easy, buy the noodles, and use cottage cheese instead of the ricotta or whatever mix the package recommends.

    I appreciate the quick feedback! Im debating between pasta or the steak dinner. She likes asparagus, so I could cook that with olive oil. Its gonna suck cooking steak though being its 30 degrees at night haha. Do yall know many 18 year olds that cook for their girl? haha

    i agree. steaks are easy and kinda hard to mess up. only think that can go wrong is you burn them. lol my mom did that last summer. Backed potatoes are pretty easy as well.

    You could always cook them in the oven, though not quite as tasty imo. Wrap them individually in foil to keep the moisture in, throw some carrots and onions in with them, pretty nom-tastic.

    you can cook steak on a pan/skillet on a regular stove.....

    if you go the steak route, put some basic seasonings on there and let it sit already thawed in room temperature for about 20 minutes before you cook it... and after you cook it, make sure you let the steak sit for about 5-10 minutes... this will help leave the steak nice and juicy... hell, while you wait, make your asparagus... to make things easy, i would just cook it in the same pan/skillet that you just used for your steak! Throw in some olive oil, toss the veges in and if you got some sauce, drizzle some sauce on it... add some sliced mushrooms too! that'll be yummy.!!

    When its done, plate up and serve!
