Cook a special dinner for your s.o. and make sure everything on the menu is an aphrodisiac. The term “aphrodisiac” comes from the Greek God of sensuality, Aphrodite. While science cannot confirm that these foods have any effect on your libido, eating foods that are supposed to get you in the mood will at least have the placebo effect of getting you in the mood.
Set the stage by bringing out your best china and crystal. Cut and arrange some flowers. Put on a clean table cloth.
Then arrange the menu by courses.
Start with an appetizer of Oysters Rockerfeller. Oysters get their love-enhancing reputation from their appearance and the mouth-feel of swallowing them whole. However, they are rich in zinc and iron which enhance potency.
Your next course could be a fig and arugula salad. It is said that breaking up and eating a fig in front of your lover is a powerful erotic act. The truffles contained in the vinaigrette in following recipe are said to make your skin more sensitive to the touch.

Your main course could be a chicken breast in orange sauce and asparagus on the side. In the 1800s in France, bridegrooms were served three courses of asparagus at their prenuptial dinner.
Desert should be strawberries with chocolate fondue and whipped cream. Be sure to have lots of whipped cream, because you may want to put it to creative use just after dinner is over.
Take a Vacation in Your Town
Most of the cost of a vacation is in the lodging and transportation. If you can eliminate these things, you can have an inexpensive vacation.
Look at your own city through new eyes. What would you do if you were coming into town for the weekend and you didn’t live there? Are there sites you would visit? Restaurants you would definitely eat at? Experiences you can only have there?
Too many times we take our own towns for granted and see the greener grass away from home. When we do this, we overlook the gems that are offered right at home.
If you don’t have the budget to take your sweetheart out of town for the weekend, suggest a vacation in your own town.
To do this, you have to clear the books. Even though you are staying in your own house, you can’t do any chores. Tell your boss that you are going away for a romantic weekend and can’t be reached. Tell your family and friends that you are “on vacation” and aren’t available for normal things.
Sit down ahead of time and plan out a schedule. If there are things in your town that you love to do but don’t ordinarily make time for, do them. But, also explore a little. Do the things you’ve never done.
I know you are trying to save money, but part of the joy of vacations is not having to cook. So when you go on a vacation to your own town, budget in meals out. Make sure that at least one of the meals is truly special – just like you would on a more traditional vacation.
Visitors spend thousands of dollars coming to your town. You’ve got it at your feet. Make the most of it!
