Hello lovelies. I'm Gaby from Paperplanes & Maryjanes, a personal style blog. I just got home to Brooklyn after living in California for six months where I was working in social media for Levi's. For a half of a year I was without the two things I love most- my boyfriend and my kitchen!
As soon as I got home I couldn't wait to make a sexy meal for my dude. Here is my menu for spicing things up for your man. Don't worry, I usually wear clothes when I cook.
No matter what I make, he always grabs for a beer. So I made something that would pair nicely, spicy cajun popcorn. I popped the kernels on my stove top (which was one of the funnest things I have ever done). When I removed the popped corn from the pot, I melted a half a stick of butter with salt and cajun spices leftover from a summertime crawfish boil then mixed the popcorn back in.
The other way to a man's heart is gooey, cheesy goodness. Or that might be my heart. Grilled cheese is so much fun to experiment with and this time I went with a stinky provolone and asiago cheese and smothered the bread with a spicy apricot jam. Sweet and savory and spicy. yummm.
What grilled cheese would be complete without a hot soup? I chose a vegetarian split pea soup which was just like any man should be- hearty, thick and surprisingly sweet and perfect with some Tabasco.
I didn't need to make dessert.
