If you’ll be apart for several days, create a romantic-dinner-in-a-box.
- Write out the menu.
- List the ingredients needed for dinner.
- Write instructions for preparing the meal.
Go into as much detail as possible. Use correct cooking terms. Add offhand comments like, “If I was there, I’d crack and separate the eggs for you.” Or, “time to give the cook a kiss”.
Place all in a box. Include uncommon dry ingredients you don’t have around the house.
On the morning of the dinner, send your sweetheart a message with directions to the box.
A call during dinner lets you share the meal together. You may be apart physically but you can share the meal together. How romantic.
