Spy School #7 (perfect for Valentine's Day)

I'd prepare to do this challenge for your Valentine's Day Date!

Are you the cook or is he?  For this challenge it doesn’t matter.  What matters is that you both whip up something sexy in the kitchen.  Get your head out of the gutter; I’m talking about cooking a meal together that you wouldn’t normally eat and then sharing the meal over candlelight.

To prepare you’ll need to choose the date and time of your husband's cooking challenge and get the groceries necessary to make your aphrodisiac meal.  You might also want to come up with some dialogue questions (no talking about kids tonight!)

Here’s what I suggest (with the exception of the salad, these recipes are from one of my favorite cookbooks InterCourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook)

For Dinner:

Strawberry Salad
1 lb washed and torn spinach
1 pint washed and sliced strawberries


Combine the following in blender and pour over salad:
3/4 c. sugar
1/3 c. vinegar
1/4 c. poppy seed
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tbsp. grated onion
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 c. salad oil


Strawberry Pasta

(see the cookbook)

OR

Chicken and Asparagus Black-bean Enchiladas

See the cookbook



For Dessert:

Strawberry Chocolate Crescent Rolls
2 strawberries sliced
chocolate chips (semi-sweet, bittersweet—you choose)
1 package of crescent rolls (package of 4 is perfect)
powdered sugar

Lay out crescent rolls.  Put a few pinches of chocolate chips and a strawberry slice in the center.  Roll up.  Place on a cookie sheet.  Bake according to package directions.  Cool a few minutes.  Dust with powdered sugar.  To make dessert taste better, feed each other.

Sample discussion questions:

·      In what ways have I changed since we’ve been married?
·      What song from the 80’s best defines you and why?
·      If we could get on a plane tonight and go anywhere in the world, where would we go?
·      If someone was to make our marriage into a movie, what actor and actress would portray us?

Text or e-mail this to your husband inviting him to the challenge:

 The Challenge:

Bond is a man of distinguished taste.  If you choose to accept this challenge, your skills and tastes will be put to the test.  Meet me at ____TIME_&_DATE____ .  Dress in a manner that makes you feel sexy.
