Write about a favorite recipe, or create a poem that is a recipe for something abstract, such as a feeling.
2 cups of kind words and encouragement
1.5 cups of romancing and courtship
2 tbsp of stupid jokes
1/4 cup of spontaneity
1 cup of trust and respect
1 pinch of enjoying each other's company in silence
1/2 lb of compatibility
Top it off with a garnish of patience
And you have the perfect recipe for a lasting, loving relationship.
Tweak the ingredients at your own discretion. Everyone has their own preference.
Some people like it served cold, boiling hot or at room temperature.
I recommend a nice red blend wine (Shiraz, Cabernet and a touch of Merlot) to be served alongside the dish.
