I think we forgot to cover presentation though. Need some work there, my friend.
Because we didn't expect he's going to mix everything up in a bowl

Well, we're poor college kids so we used our finest china and the only two clean forks we had

And yes, the bolognese was easy enough that I was confident it wouldn't be ruined lol

That's fine. I remember those days, but I'd still cook dinner for girls at my apartment in my college days and at least TRIED to make it look nice - depsite my Fred and Wilma glasses.

But I think if someone cooked me a meal and first put it in a dog bowl on the floor, that sorta takes away from the whole romantic dinner thing. And then to toss some in a bowl and throw it on the table with a fork, all I'm seeing mentally at that point is dog food in a different bowl . . . .

At the least, I'd have used a plate, maybe a little salad and a piece of garlic bread so it looked well placed and a little more appetizing? A folded napkin (even a paper towel folded nicely), clean silverware laid out (fork, knife AND spoon whether you are going to use them or not) also goes a long way.

I still think you did a great job for her birthday though and put a lot of thought into it.

I actually gave the dog some afterwords and just used the pics for comedic purposes

Right now we have literally 5 plates, and the reason for the hasty meal is that we ate at 10:30 pm, the only time I'll see her until Saturday at 4pm. She goes to UW Madison full time (16 credits) while working 25-35hrs a week. I work from 4-10 six days a week, so finding time for any half legit sit down meal is an accomplishment in and of itself unfortunately . Neither of us were actually hungry, but we had to use the meat before it went bad lol

Hey good job there Ryan, way to go for it. You know, Bolognese sounds REALLY good right now. I've never made it myself, I should try it sometime!

Honestly, if I can make it, ANYONE can lol

I'm gonna try and get a night off of work sometime when she's off to make a more proper meal, something a bit more strenuous with an appetizer and a legit, non-boxed dessert

Not yet, the soonest we're both free is the 28th. We take a 6hr long class, then jump

6 hours?!

After 6 hours, I'd probably be ready to jump without a chute.

Yeah, the benefit of that is after the class, we can just call up and schedule a jump anytime we want for $40

That's assuming that we 1) live through the first jump, and 2) decide to ever do it again
