Good morning! Welcome to Tea ‘n Strumpets. I write a monthly spot (second Friday of the month) called Recipe for Romance to give you ideas of how to make your own love life a little more romantic. Just in time for the weekend, yes?
One of the things that happens a lot in my house is I’m usually the first one up. Sleeping in and relaxing isn’t something I get to do very often because I have little people who think they have to eat as soon as the sun crests the horizon. There are some mornings I’d like someone else to get up and feed the cat, the kids, and whoever else is hanging around. Better yet, it would be wonderful to have someone deliver breakfast in bed with all the trimmings, including a rose or tulip to brighten the meal. Think of just hanging out in bed with a hot cup of coffee, a good meal, and a comfy back support. Only thing needed is your lover. 😉
RECIPE FOR ROMANCE
One (or more) loved-one
Morning (your own definition applies)
Beverages (coffee, tea, juice)
Favorite flower variety
Delicious meal (variations may apply)
Assemble the ingredients and bring to your lover (or convince them to bring it to you). If you’re serving, make a meal you know your loved one(s) will enjoy and provides relaxation. Find your lover’s favorite treats and assemble them on a tray to deliver to them as they wake up. And if you’re adventurous, offer to feed them with your own hands. It’s reminiscent of being cared for in ways not the usual. Love and connection works in subtle as well as obvious ways and making someone a meal is an easy way to show it. As always, clothing is optional.
Alterations to Recipe:
For those who have small people who often demand food first, ask them to help you to prepare the tray and goodies for your lover(s). Little people love to do fun surprises for their parents (usually) and giving them a goal helps with the enjoyment. This not only strengthens your relationship with your lover(s), but also the connection you have with the little people in your family. Connection is important for every relationship and engenders more love.
Mix and serve immediately. Feeds the souls of two or more. 🙂
