After this relentless winter, it might be a good idea to just get outside for an hour or two. This “old fashioned” meal is actually very thoughtful and worth a shot. Pack his or her favorite dish to-go, and lay out a blanket to enjoy the fresh air. Grab an ice cream cone after, or just go for a walk. (Not a bad idea to bring sunscreen and bug spray).
This one lends itself to a romantic fire for two, or a big get together for a group date. Make it whatever you want it to be. Grab a blanket and a drink (alcoholic or otherwise) to just sit and hangout together.
