A few weeks back, I introduced you to a friend of mine, Ginnie Siena Bivona, the author of Dirty Dining. (original post). I have had so much fun talking to Ginnie and reading her book. She is such a fabulous person, a true gem. And she’s pretty busy right now. Check out her bio down below to see what she’s currently up to!
But before you do, I thought it was a good time to share one of the chapters and a couple of the recipes from her book.
Christian Grey and Anastasia Steel didn’t start anything new. Ever since Og and Ogette began flirting with one another across a steaming pot of mastodon stew, lovers have enjoyed sharing a romantic meal. Good food, love and laughter just naturally go together. And in this delightful book, and you have all the ingredients to take your love life to the next level. If-you-dare romantic scenarios and outstanding menus; recipes you’ll still be using long after the candles have flickered out. Topped off nicely with a how-to-get-it-to-the-table-on-time Game Plan, even a complete Grocery Shopping List for each chapter. It’s a perfect gift for you and your one true love. Take off all your clothes and enjoy. Just don’t discuss it with your mother. Unless you think she’d like a copy
So, what’s on the menu tonight?
Picante Sauce & Mama Siena’s Tortilla Chips*
Chili Texas Style and Trimmin’s*
Mama Siena’s Salad Dressing
Whips On The Wall
Go to a party store and buy 4 or five cute little toy whips. Or get creative and make some. Go to your favorite garage (if you are nervy enough) and borrow some chains. If they start asking questions, leave quickly. If you have way too much time on your hands, you can make the chains. We all learned in first grade art class…so I know you know how. Put some of the whips in a vase, tape a couple to a wall in the dining area. Add a few dead flowers and drape the chains around any old which way. Light some fat red candles.
Women wear a short leather skirt, black mesh hose, and spiky heels. Or best, black boots. Wear tons of mascara, black eyeliner, bright red lipstick and mess your hair up (use gel). A toy hammer and tiny screwdrivers tied to a piece of leather cord make a cute necklace. Do not wear a bra. Let’s face it, they don’t care how great your boobs are, just as long as you have a reasonably matched set.
If you are a man, wear black leather pants. If you don’t have any, tight old worn out jeans will do. Tear ‘em up a little bit. Wear a wrinkled Hawaiian print shirt half open, especially if you have a hairy chest. Borrow a couple of your sister’s heavy gold chains for “bling-bling.”
Whoever fixes dinner plays the lead. Make your partner take off pieces of clothing when you tell them to. Be Rugged. Be Tough. Remember, you are the kinky one. If he/she leaves in a snit…don’t worry, this meal is good enough to serve to your pastor. Probably
*My hubby and I are fans of chips and salsa, a year round treat, so I thought I’d share this portion of the menu.
Yum. These are a couple of my favorites! To get the other recipes in the Whips on the Wall chapter, the shopping list, and the Game Plan - step-by-step instructions on how and when to prepare each aspect of the meal for your special night, and still have time to fit in a bubble bath and manicure before the big event!
Check back soon for another peek into Dirty Dining. Hmm. I’m thinking either Skinny Dippin…It’s Good for You, or Dancing Man! Anybody have a preference?
