Default Picnic on the boat

Thought I'd try and spark some discussion on some ideas for a Picnic on the boat. Has to be a cold menu, as I do not have a stove or microwave on my boat (92 Maxum 2100SC). Looking for a romantic meal for 2!

If your over 25 go with wine..........under 25 wine coolers.............don't worry about food that just ruins it.

In all seriousness, some of my dock mates are some real foodies. For us we have a grill and a kitchen so it's all steak and chicken for us but they do some really fun stuff.

Try a traditional greek salad with the cheese and tomatoes...

They also do a great ceasar with chicken that can all be cold. You can pack the pieces seperately in a cooler and bring a fun bowl and make it in front of her.

I've also seen some sushi pulled off or cocktail shrimp naturally in fancy glasses. (if your a seafood person)

If your from down south cold fried chicken is sexy to some

The most important piece of all of this is if anybody forwards this crap to my wife I'll hunt you down like the dog you are...........I've worked for 10 years to make her think I'm incapable of having these thoughts.

If all else fails body shots and whipped cream is a good fallback.

Too funny. I promise I won't tell her. the traditional Greek salad with the cheese and tomatoes sounds yummy with a nice crusty roll, w/butter and wine of course. Strawberries dipped in chocolate is always a big hit. Just a side note I have cooked on a Engine, I did some fish wrapped in tin foil and all seasoned up. turned out really good. Only took 20 min to cook if I remember right!

Thumbs up

the traditional "blow boaters special..." might be the way to go...strawberries and champagne.....but start out with fried chicken and mashed taters....no..wait.....the salad thingy above and THEN the strawberries and champagne...and chocolate!!...yeah....way to a womans heart is definitely chocolate....


don't forget to use those fancy glasses (plastic of course) and hold your pinky out...

soft tunes on the radio....then under the sleeping bag!!!

Ok lets see... gotta have the check list:
- Find the perfect Anchorage
- set the mood with soft tunes on the radio, think a little Barry White might do
- cocktail shrimp in fancy glasses
- greek salad with the cheese and tomatoes
- Nice Red wine
- strawberries Dipped in Chocolate and champagne with the fancy glasses (plastic of course
- then Desert (Hey....I am keeping it "G" rated LOL)
- followed by body shots and whipped cream
Check and Check Sounds like a Great night to me! Now I just need that Moon to Cooperate

IMHO - If you've already had "desert" then screw the body shots and whipped cream. I hate that crap - just like where it goes!!
