Hmmm. What to cook?

Cooking has always brought me a happiness that I didn't think was available. I just fire up the stove, and things start to fade away.

My husband (who quit smoking and starting running the first week in February) is running his first 5K tomorrow morning. My in-laws are coming to watch him run. I'm really looking forward to cooking dinner for them tonight but am having a total crisis trying to decide what to make.

Possibilities:
Shrimp Diavolo with Asparagus, Proscuitto, and Smoked Mozzarella Penne
Texas Chicken with Baked Mashed Potatoes
A Grilled Feast (Steak, Potatoes, and a Salad)
Chicken Cordon Bleu with Rice
Marinated Salmon with Pasta Primavera

Any choice would, of course, be accompanied by cupcakes for dessert!

I would have gone Texaschicken. i find that if you go too fancy, they think you are being pretentious, and grilling can be a little, well, unpredictable.
