a) low in fat and calories (for my benefit)
b) hearty and filling enough that it doesn't lack meat (for his benefit)
c) not too filling (for optimum lack of bloatedness)
d) simple, ingredients-wise (for cheapness, mainly, as I'm buying)
e) quick and easy to make, while still presenting impressively (because, c'mon, I'm going to get distracted but I still need to look like a shit hot chef)
oh, yeah, and
f) exceptionally tasty (obvz so I can be like 'yo, I'm better at this than you are')
.. OH GOD.
