Looking to put the sizzle back into your relationship? Or are you and your guy just in need of some quality together time so you can relax and reconnect? You can surprise him with a “grilliant” experience this weekend that will make him feel loved and will bring you both together.
Though the weather outside isn’t your typical grilling weather, it’s actually the perfect time to fire up the grill and warm up your spirits and your bellies. Here are a few ideas for how you can put together the perfect “grilliant” experience for you and your man this weekend:
Grill Up Something Great
There are so many options for great dishes you can grill up. Does your man love a juicy steak? Or is he trying to eat a bit healthier and would prefer a smoky, mesquite chicken? Select a nice cut of meat to tempt your guy — steaks, chicken, fish, pork loin, leg of lamb or even kebabs. Anything goes! Soak it in a savory marinade or rub it down with the perfect blend of spices. Then fire up the grill so that it’s ready to go when your man walks in. You can throw your meat on the grill so he can enjoy the delicious smells while it cooks and you prepare the perfect sides.
Pair It with the Perfect Beer
While you’re getting everything ready on the grill, lead your guy to the sofa to kick up his feet and present him with an ice-cold beer. Surprise him with his favorite, or decide to try something new and exotic. Go to a specialty shop and get recommendations for the perfect pairing with what you plan to grill. You could even do a mini-world sampler. It might even be fun to try a few brews from local breweries.
Relax for a Game or a Movie
With March Madness upon us, it’s the perfect time to kick back in front of the TV and enjoy your grilled entree while you watch a game. If your man’s not a basketball fan, or if there isn’t a game on the night you decide to grill out, put on a good movie instead. Skip the romantic comedy and pick something that you and your man will both enjoy. It’s Oscar season, so there are plenty of great movies in all genres for your choosing.
Follow It Up with a Good Back Rub
Nothing beats a great night like a good back rub. Offer your guy a nice shoulder massage or a deep back rub to work out all the kinks and to help him unwind. If your man is more a foot guy, try a foot massage instead. When you’re done, he might decide to return the favor. Either way, it will make him feel more relaxed and will bring the two of you close. Then … who knows?
There are few men who don’t love to grill or don’t love a nice meal cooked on a grill. Surprise your man with this “grilliant” experience this weekend, and you are sure to make your guy feel like one lucky fella.
