Speaking of seduction via food, here's a book.

Be careful when browsing that book in a bookstore! It got me kicked out of a Barnes and Noble in Sioux Falls, SD!

I always attempt to have the ratio of my intelligence to weight ratio be greater than one. But, I am from the midwest. I am sure you can now understand my life's conundrum.

Appetizer: BLT's cut into wedges with spinach instead of lettuce and a good dollop of dijon in the homemade, lemony mayonnaise on a bed of lemon (or grapefruit) roasted asparagus.

Roast chicken from this book's 0688131352.01._PE30_PIdp-schmoo2,TopRight,7,-26_SCMZZZZZZZ_.jpgrecipe, and roasted zucchini with balsamic vinaigrette on roasted acorn squash.

Dessert: rhubarb upside down cake with whipped cream and port or Frangelico fortified hot chocolate to finish.

Drinks: bubbly rose to start, Spilker Ales' Hopalleuia with the entree, and either really good coffee after the hot chocolate, or decent coffee with Frangelico to end.

As for the explanation, in the "Intercourses" cookbook, there is a picture of an asparagus apron/skirt/kilt. I was providing an example of the dance I would do whilst wearing said apron/skirt/kilt, and apparently Barnes and Noble is not the appropriate place to tango. I also think we were disturbing several rows of book-shelves with our chuckles in the black bean section.
