Spoil him rotten!

Everyone loves to be pampered. Its a special feeling that you can only get when the moment is completely yours. When time stands still and you question weather its real, its when you want it to last forever just to embrace it. Just to feel it for as long as you can. Its yours to be had and a memory to be smiled upon time and time again. Moments like that happen intentionally, they exist because love is shown through our actions.

Service is one of the ways love is shown to us. Service your man. Because its not always about us, even though its nice to think so. Make him relaxed, bring him some dessert, be completely devoted to him. I made a bath. Threw in a salt. Turned on music. Opened red wine. Cut up some fruit. Melted chocolate. Lite up candles. And served him. Yep. Everyone loves to be pampered.

Frozen fruit work well in a hot bath because fruit is a light dessert and when its frozen it is also refreshing. Pair it with a sweet fondue. Here are two ideas.

Frozen Cherries with Dark Chocolate
1 Pkg. Frozen cherries, Half-way thawed in fridge.
1 Bar Good quality dark chocolate, Melted
Cherry brandy is optional, add to taste

Frozen Pineapple with Carmel Sauce
1 Pkg. Frozen pineapples, Half-way thawed in fridge.
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream

Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. add the brown sugar and stir until it dissolves. Add the cream, whisking until combined with the sugar.

Note: I bought a personal fondue set after Valentines for 5 dollars. Its just a little stand with a candle under it which works wonderful for little things like this.
