Friday night date-night dinner can be crowded and cliché. Instead, trade carpooling duties with a friend, and spend a free Saturday at brunch. Or, just have it at home. While you can’t go wrong with eggs and mimosas, Leah Tinari, owner of New York City brunch hotspot Fatta Cuckoo, swears by BLT tacos. To make them, take corn tortillas and toast them in a pan while you’re frying bacon.
Top the tacos with arugula, avocado slices, tomatoes, and a dash of hot sauce. Toast the day ahead with a tequila sea breeze: one ounce grapefruit juice, one ounce cranberry juice, and one ounce tequila. To make it extra delicious, eat it in bed…nearly naked.
Get physical on the living room floor
“My husband and I have two young kids, so getting out by ourselves is pretty rare,” says Rebecca K., 33, of Seattle, WA. “But we do make time to do P90X together three times a week, after the kids are in bed. It keeps us in shape, and it also gets us in a competitive spirit; we always have competitions over who can do the most push-ups!”
One more reason why breaking a sweat turns up the heat in your relationship? Studies have found that competition can crank up libido, so keep challenging him on the push-ups.
