Several options came to my mind when I read this.

1. You should have rolled over towards him, looked him square in the eye and said "you know, it's been boring me, too...why don't you take a stab at it for a while before I suffer some real burnout and poison the sugar dates?! Then, kiss him goodnight, and roll back over. Fake snoring would be helpful here.

2. For 30 bucks, you can make a nice dinner with some double thick pork chops, risotto with kiln dried cherries and roasted patty pan squash, and then top that off with chocolate mousse and amaretto cordials.

3. Spend the entire 30 bucks on a nice bottle of wine, light as many candles as you can get your hands on, turn on some jazz, take off all your clothes except your heels and your pearls....and ask him if he's still bored after he regains his senses.

I really like all three choices, personally. I do so hope I was helpful.

LOL!

I like all of those suggestions though


You could always wear the food? Just nothing hot like caramel or bananas foster...that is more of a whoa then a wow.

Thank you thank you...just throw money...

I'm all for wearing the food, too, despite my constant need to monitor food temps and holding times. My favourite food to wear is chocolate, fruit, whipped cream, and the ocassional splash of brandy

instead of worrying about what you're cooking... why not worry about what you're wearing while you're cooking?

i bet THAT would get him interested in MORE than just the food.

I suggest meeting him at the door in the nude and saying..."Guess what's cooking!" lol
Ummmm..... I suggest you take your elbow, and slightly jab him in the stomach. Then say that you are working your butt off. THAT..... or suggest sushi!

I have actually done that.

I also used to have some very sexy little "outfits" that I'd surpise him with. One night he came home, and I had on a black lace catsuit with an apron over it, and was fixing supper.

He loved that.
