You went out of town to visit your mother, leaving the husband to fend for himself, foraging for food and what not. Now that you’re back, you want to make a special meal for him. Let’s see what Betty’s got cooking in her “Men’s Favorites” section…
Mmm, mmm, manly… BROTH? Nothing makes your hubby feel like he’s your big, strong stud than starting this Man Meal with a cup of reconstituted beef juice and a celery swizzle stick. Although it might tell him he needs to drop a few pounds. Oooohhhhh. Wait. I just got it. He’s manly, he’s a beefcake, you want his juices later on…dirty girl. I had no idea you had it in you.
Okay. I understand that if your intent for this evening is actually a night of nooky, you don’t want to get all involved in dinner preparations, but really, how is this a recipe? Or manly for that matter? Slice tomatoes, lay on lettuce, pour on dressing. Your three-year-old could make this.
Wait. I’m so slow on the uptake. I get it now. You are signaling for your man to LAY you down and unDRESS you. I guess the lettuce part is optional or only for the adventurous.
I think I’ve got this suppertime seduction thing figured out now. This isn’t some salad for dieters, and certainly not to help your husband lose that spare tire he’s sporting. No, this is the ultimate in subtle seduction signals. You’re going to tear off his clothes, like you tear up that lettuce. Strip for him like you strip that meat and cheese. Make him hard like a boiled egg. And tossing that salad? Betty does suggest on the back of the card that some men prefer the traditional oil and vinegar dressing with this. (I told you she was dirty!)
