Here’s an idea for a 2-part Romantic Interlude.
Suggest to your sweetheart that she/he take an hour to go to the mall or the sporting goods store or some place they enjoy and where they can relax.
Hint to her/him that you’ll have something special for them when they return.
While your sweetheart is away, prepare a candlelit meal. It can be simple or a feast, elegant or take out. It’s something for just the two of you.
When your sweetheart returns, dinner, a romantic one, is served. What you serve is up to you. Robert
