The different setting will spark an exciting atmosphere.
Have a picnic inside the house, by still pulling out all the stops. All the stops means, no eating at the table, get out the picnic blanket and lunch on the floor in the living room. There are many different finger foods you can prepare at home without having to go to the deli.
Chop, slice and dice with your partner. It’s a known fact that couples who do things together, such as cooking brings them closer.
