A Bite of Romance
Did you know that foods can be romantic? I don’t mean just your everyday ordinary foods; they don’t quite fit the bill. But there are special, maybe even exotic foods that definitely qualify as romantic.
No, I can’t give you a list of them, because the list is different for every couple. Oh, there are a few that seem to be romantic for every couple, like chocolate dipped strawberries, but those are extremely rare.
You see, what makes a food romantic is the memories associated with that particular food. So, since I don’t know what memories you and your wife have, I can’t tell you what foods are romantic for you; but you can. All you have to do is dredge up the memories of special things you have eaten at special times with your wife.
It could be that you ate something special on your first date. Or, that you had habit of going out for ice cream after the movies. Maybe it’s a special type of chocolate you used to buy at a favorite getaway. Then again, it could be some type of desert you used to enjoy sharing. It might even be a special drink that the two of you enjoy. The point is that it has to be something that you enjoyed sharing together in those special moments you shared.
Day 53 – Put your thinking cap on, turn it up to high power and try and recall that special romantic food or drink that the two of you used to share. I think you can figure it out from there, right? Go get it and have a special time together with a bite of your romantic food.
If you can’t come up with anything, there’s still hope. It’s not too late to start a new romantic tradition in your home. Come up with something special, maybe a special pastry that the two of you can share as part of that new romantic tradition. Go get it, and have a special time together. Then, the next time you bring that home, the positive romantic feelings will start as soon as you bring it in the door.
