To create Cornish hens: 2 Cornish game hens, Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, lemon, dried Rosemary leaves (in spice section).

How to Make one Enchanted Evening for two
Rule Number Two:
Now, I’ll sum-up the whole matter of romance in one word – presentation. You will find the correct presentation for the spinach salad and dessert included in the articles.
Look around your house for a setting that says “this is the place”. You may wish to set up a small table in front of the fireplace, on the back patio or put cushions on the floor and enjoy dinner on your coffee table.
Buy or borrow two cloth napkins. Nothing spells class quite like cloth napkins. Fold each into a triangle shape. A lace tablecloth is pretty, but not mandatory. Knife and spoon go on left side of plate, forks on right. Wine glass is placed on right side of water glass.
Complete table presentation before starting meal preparations. Remember to place the candles on table. One long-stemmed red rose, crosswise on her dinner plate is romantic. Twelve dozen roses are ostentatious. Keep in mind: understated is elegant.
Presenting Your Romantic Self:
Women are tactile. Choose soft clothing made of cotton or a silk shirt. Don’t overdo the cologne. Here’s a woman trick: spray cologne in front of you and walk through it – you have my personal guarantee to smell delicious.
Give your Woman the Romance she Wants
Rule Number Three:
The key word of an enchanted evening is romance. Romance does not translate to sex. During the evening, if sparks start sizzling, suggest a time out. Consider an after dinner walk or weather permitting, spread a blanket on the ground and stargaze.
After dinner is finished, pour your woman a glass of wine, or sparkling non-alcoholic beverage and shoo her out of the kitchen. Women are natural helpers. But tonight is all about her. Pile the dishes in the sink and brew the coffee.
If you’re having Baileys with the coffee, add about a tablespoon of this creamy liquer to each cup of coffee. You may enjoy a black and white classic movie. Do you need a clue? War movies or football movies aren’t romantic. Select something with Rock Hudson or Carey Grant if you want your ladies toes to curl.
Do you “happen” to have a book of romantic poetry? Get it and ask her to lie on the couch, with her feet in your lap. Read a few of the poems, while you gently massage her feet.
It’s a good time to sincerely compliment your woman and tell her you care. There will be another good time for intimacy, just not tonight.
Tonight, you are giving your woman the romance she wants.
