Alright, heres what you're going to do.

 

Go get some 5-7 dollar two piece chuck steak or steak with relatively little fat from Kroger/Publix/Wherever you live. Go get a can of peas and corn. (This is a classic, easy, southern dinner I've done before). And A1 sauce.

 

Spread some A1 sauce on both sides of each steak. Preheat your oven to broil. When its done, stick the steaks in the oven. For medium rare to medium, keep it in there for 3-4 minutes, then switch sides, and 3-4 minutes on that side. Then take it out, and you have a pretty damn good tasting steak. Try it out once before she comes over, maybe tomorrow.

 

Peas and corn should be self explanatory. Dash some pepper in it while its in the pot for more flavor. Maybe a little salt.

Then if you're old enough, go get some wine, or some beer, and grab whatever she prefers, if you don't already have any. I don't think lying about the chef thing is a big deal, and has potential to make you look worse than you really are if you come clean. Its so miniscule. Don't take life too seriously. I think you're a light hearted guy just going with the flow, enjoying yourself, and accidentally let this one slip. No need to increase the possibility that you make it sound like it was a HUGE LIE and overall just make it extremely serious and kill the attraction she has for you. And no, it is not shallow.

What was wrong with just being yourself? Why the need to lie like that?

 

Never cool to masquerade as being someone else with skills you don't possess.

 

Well, why not continue the lies, and when she comes over, tell her the oven broke, and you picked up a pizza instead.

Or make pad thai.

 

All you need is mushrooms, green pepper, broccoli and carrots. You can also add baby corn, bean sprouts, or water chestnuts.

 

Pick up a packet of pad thai sauce (the one I use comes pre-mixed, it's not a powder) buy a couple of skinless boneless chicken breasts.

 

1. Cut the chicken into small little squares, about 1" by 1"

 

2. Put the chicken in a fry pan with a little bit of water, and cook it at medium heat until the chicken is turning white.

 

3. Add your veggies (just takes a few minutes to wash and chop them) and let everything sit and steam up, tossing occasionally.

 

4. When the veggies are tender, add the pad thai sauce and stir it up.

 

5. Add a little bit of lime juice and a bit of cilantro if you want it to taste even better.

 

6. Serve the stirfry up on rice, or something like Mr. Noodles.\

 

For dessert, if you really want to wow her, make a fruit salad out of mangos, strawberries, etc... dust the fruit with icing sugar. Super easy and really good.

Hahah, wow, funny stuff here. This isn't a lie, this is an exaggeration. I enjoy cooking. But cooking for myself some left overs is different from making a nice impressive meal for someone I like. I will follow some easy recipe. That + wine should to the trick .

Well, which is it, then?

So, was that a lie, too?

 

Hmmm...

It's a literary device called hyperbole - a figure of speech in which statements are exaggerated to evoke strong feelings or to create a strong impression, but is rarely meant to be taken literally. It is meant to be used to create emphasis.

 

You are getting caught up in the detail rather than the idea. If someone says "I'm screwed" do they mean there is a screw going into them? No, it is a figure of speech. A hyperbole if you will.

 

EDIT: Sorry if I came off rude here. I am more excited/nervous than scared and I failed to express that in my original post.
