Now, Game of Thrones seems like an odd choice for a romantic dinner theme, but my DH and I both liked the first couple of books in the series and we've found the TV show very entertaining. Besides, my DH once implied that GoT would be a great idea for one of our dinners... so, why not?
I started by searching for appropriate recipes. I guess one could very well just go and develop them, but I had happened to come across this amazing site, Inn at the Crossroads, which features a large collection of recipes based on descriptions in the books. There are so many interesting ones, it was difficult to choose. However, I wanted dishes that are fairly easy to prepare, or rather, things that don't take a long time to cook or can either be made in advance or found in a grocery store. I do enjoy cooking, but time is always an issue, especially in a household with a small child. Another concern was that the ingredients had to be available in a supermarket in Finland.
