When Gary Chapman wrote about love languages, he missed a vital one — food. Although not officially recognized as one, we believe that food is a love language, and it is one so many of us already speak fluently. If you got a bride online like many people searching for Brazilian brides, you would want to impress her someway when she finally comes home.
One of the ways you can make your wife feel loved is by making her a meal.
Making a meal for your loved one is a sweet gesture for many reasons, but the most prominent is that she may not be used to such a lovely gesture. So, when this gesture comes from her husband, she sees it as romantic, sweet, and may even make her love you more. On that note, here are seven dinners that will pleasantly surprise your bride:
Beef Tenderloin with Balsamic Asparagus
Beef tenderloin with Balsamic Asparagus is a meal that you would consider as bougie and for excellent reasons. First, it is not cheap to make, and it requires a particular pattern to the preparation, so most people would instead order in, which again is expensive. However, if you are looking to please your bride, then it might be time to put on an apron, put in the effort, and swipe your card at the food market because this meal is a people pleaser.
Pork Chops in Port wine sauce
Typically, you should get one bottle of wine so that both of you remain in a very conscious state at the end of the dinner. However, with this meal, you would be needing a second bottle of wine and not for drinking — the wine is for the sauce. Mid-meal, you may have a strong urge to drink your sauce but please do not. This meal is delicious, and a perfect blend of sweet, sour, and tang spice with every bite. In fact, your bride may decide to renew her vows after eating Pork Chops in Port wine sauce with you.
Mini Pasta with white sauce
When having dinner with your woman, you wouldn’t want to get foods that put you at risk of making a mess. Pasta and other Italian foods are delicious options to try out on a date but they come with sauce that can easily spill and ruin your evening. However, there’s a solution to this problem, especially with pasta — mini pasta.
Regular pasta is long and you need to be careful while eating to avoid spillage. And since you’d want to give your wife all your attention, it would be ideal to go for foods that don’t draw your focus away from her. Bite-sized pasta is easy to eat and delectable, and for even better results, opt for white sauce over marinara sauce
Quick Chicken Marsala
Forget what the name says; this is not a meal you rush through its preparation process; it requires some level of delicacy. Quick chicken marsala is yet another meal prepared with wine, but not the kind of wine you know; you make it using the marsala cooking wine. The marsala cooking wine is a dry, sweet wine that balances the creamy taste of any food.
You make Quick chicken marsala with chicken breasts, which is the softest part of the chicken, and supposedly explain the ‘quick’ in the name of the meal. As delightful as it sounds, it certainly will blow the mind of your bride away.
Prosciutto and Arugula pizza
Many do not consider pizza as a date night meal unless garnished with prosciutto and the elegance of sprinkled arugula. This is not your ordinary pizza; it has to be made from scratch, using only the best ingredients. Your bride may have had pizza before — countless times even — but she has never had the luxurious creation you are about to feed her on date night.
Creamy four-cheese pasta with spinach
Pasta is best when it is so creamy you can hardly not make a mess when you eat it. The best way to make pasta very creamy is by using four different kinds of cheese. Imagine tasting mozzarella, parmesan, and any two other types of cheese in your pasta. The taste is heavenly, and the best part is this pasta comes with sprinkles of broccoli.
You do not always have to go to the beach or the seaside to eat a good oyster; you could always dazzle your bride by grilling it up at home. With the right kind of spice and some melted butter, this meal will melt in your mouth like ice on a sunny day. This meal would indeed have your bride smiling with excitement.
Steak and carrots with parsley pesto
A romantic dinner night is not complete without some unusual food, and that is why grilled carrots sprinkled with parsley for effect are just the right thing. Having this meal along with a spiced steak would make your dinner night even better. Your bride may never have had spiced, grilled carrot before, so you just might be making a good food memory there.
As we said before, albeit unexplored, food is a love language. Your relationship with your bride can be fantastic if you have occasional dinners where you dazzle here with any of these meals listed above. So, if you were wondering how to spice up your love life, make your bride happy, bring in the spices, wear an apron and make a meal.
