The way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach. Yep, I know that’s traditionally said about the MEN in the Man Cave, but TRUST ME, GUYS. There is nothing — NO cologne you can put on — that woos a woman better than “I’m-wearing-the-gorgeous-scent-of-that-STEAK-I-just-grilled-for-you.”
One day, after a LONG day of covering flooding in the Pacific Northwest, I came home cold, soaking wet, and unlocked the door to find my husband holding a glass of red wine out to me and the scent of prime rib cooking. That was about a decade ago and I vividly remember it today. Your woman’s a vegetarian? Impress her with the best meal she’s ever had sans meat. She will be yours, one vegan casserole at a time. You see, despite the countless diet commercials and fads, women actually do like eating. Especially something that is lovingly prepared by the men (hubbys and sons) of the Man Cave. In fact, I can’t prove it . . . but I’m pretty darn sure my husband keeps a bowl of home-made cookie dough in the fridge as just that little bit of added insurance to make sure I come home at night. Yep. It’s workin’.
