Breakfast in Bed / Nightcap

Posted by Kero at Wednesday, February 24, 2010
The other night, while sharing a glass of Merlot in bed, I told hubby that our CC theme for the week is breakfast in bed. Since I do not have a photo to spice up my post, i thought of skipping a CC entry.. 

Ever the eager one on reading what i'm up to online, Hubby said, "How about drinking in bed?"

Like any loved-up newlyweds, weekend breakfasts during the first year of our marriage  were spent on bed. We even bought a tray table specifically for bed breakfast. But that all changed when our son arrived. Andreas sleeps like an aged man. He wakes up early and sleeps late. I do not want to risk a mess with a toddler's eating habits so we refrained from doing that romantic thing.

Nightcap. Merlot, apple slices, and creamy stilton cheese.

Instead, on those rare occasion that Andreas hits the sack early, hubby opens a bottle of wine or brandy or whatever is available on the counter. I, on the other hand prepare finger foods as simple as slices of sharp cheddar cheese, diced wholemeal bread, and pineapple slices. With dimmed lights, reclined on several pillows on the bed, we toast and discuss just about everything. Our future plans or what we learned from the past. Often it could be what's on the news like the Middle East politics, the war on Gaza, Mossad spies, CIAs, or books like Sun Tzu's The Art Of War. Yeah, those are definitely not romantic but we both have fascination for such topics. Maybe because hubby spent two years in the Philippine Military Academy and my childhood was spent in war-torn Mindanao.

Anyways, breakfast or a drink in bed is one way of nurturing your marriage. That is why a couple's matrimonial bed is very sacred. It is the sole witness to a husband and wife's secrets -- and glorious moments.

Ceasar on the other hand has no time for sports other than rare chess and swimming (sa summer pa). kadami kasi nilang work!!

Thank you for the visit, Sheng!

that's a great idea! instead of breakfast in bed, a nightcap is the next best thing. it is one great way to call it a day.

I don't have experience of having breakfast in bed or preparing it and I really envy couples doing those sweetest thing.
I love waiting until the kids are all asleep and pulling out beer for my husband and me--hinde nga lang sa bed..

Happy CC!!

nightcap is indeed a romantic moment for couples. we do that but with the beer and chicharon.

mukhang masarap ang cheese na yan, di pa rin ako nakatikim nyan.

bakit nawala nag comment ko? next ako kay Sheng ah, wahhhh! san napunta??? no wonder sinabi mong come and visit you. dpat after ako ni sheng eh!

anyways.. ke breakfast pa yan or drink in bed, it's very important na once in a while or most of the time or kaya rin lang natin, let's do something extra special for our loved ones di ba? Nakakataba ng puro yung ipahahanda mo sila ng kahit ano lang, or you would share a drink or meal romantically.

Thanks for joining Kero. Have fun! Lagi palang looking forward si Ceasar sa mga posts mo, hahaha.. para ngang si Rodney ko..
