The relationship blues may have set in just after the holiday hoopla has settled down and now you feel the all-too-familiar sameness in your relationship routine. Take heart. The search for happiness in your relationship may only be a few simple home-prepared dishes away.
The holiday cooking excitement is over and your guy is back to his regular routine of sitting in front of the TV armed with the remote and a couple slices of cold pizza and a half can of beer. There you sit in your kitchen on a Friday or Saturday evening feeling like the food specialty in your weekend cooking has been spooked. Just where did the pizzazz go?
There is an old saying that “familiarity breeds contempt” and it is not just applicable to family or friends that have over-stayed their welcome. It may also apply to relationship routines such as meals that promote a staleness that makes both you and your spouse feel like your creativity is stuck in neutral.
There might just be a way to move your meals into drive by preparing new inexpensive gourmet weekend meals that are simple and definitely recession busters. One don’t-miss option is to check out Tastefully Simple, a national direct food sales company that offers food selections that can break up that weekend meal boredom.
Lynn Grueneich, Senior Lead, Communications at Tastefully Simple, stresses “We offer a wide selection of convenient, easy-to-prepare foods designed to help people spend less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying the rest of their lives.”
Friday night or on the weekend try settling on a recession-proof idea. Invite a couple friends or family members over and prepare a simple quick and easy meal. Add a Tastefully Simple gourmet snack like a Bruschetta cheese ball dish with crackers. It is easy and even if your guy wants to have his pizza as well, go ahead and order it and slice it up into bite-sized portions. Serve it alongside the Bruschetta cheese ball dish and see if he notices.
With weekend National Football League playoff games here and the Super Bowl right around the corner, invite guests over and let them bring the beverages, sandwiches, and other dishes and guess what, you got a meal.
