Everyday Romance - Romantic Story: The Romantic Feast

"Hi, I wanted to share a romantic story with your readers. Like some of the other stories I read I also have one of those 'strong silent types' for a husband. He also doesn't do 'romance' very well although I know he loves me.

One day I came home to find that my husband had made ME dinner! This probably doesn't sound like a big deal but it really was. My husband does many things around the house but cooking is definitely not one of them. He is a terrible cook. The pasta was overcooked (or stuck together in clumps), the meat nearly inedible (it was so tough), the garlic toast was burnt and the salad was drenched (soggy!) in dressing.

Doesn't sound very romantic? It really was. The BEST thing was how bashful he looked. He was embarassed and proud and shy all at the same time. We had a great time. We couldn't stop laughing. We mushed up the pasta (the parts that weren't a hardened lump) and pretended it was baby food. We tried to saw through the meat and had such trouble it squirted off the plate and onto the floor (where the dog had a feast). It was so fun. Even if it wasn't edible! We went out to McDonald's afterwards."
