Although Fourth of July is celebrated to commemorate America’s freedom, its festivities make it a great day to plan a date. If you’ll get the weekend off, as well as the fourth of July, spend your three-day vacation with the following ideas in mind:

1. Host a BBQ: Plan on hosting a BBQ with your partner and invite a few friends over. Grill your favorite food and bake a fourth of July cake.

2. Beach: Spend the following day at the beach and have a bonfire in the evening.  Bring a blanket to keep yourself warm when you curl up next to your significant other. Don’t forget to also bring along marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate bars to make S’mores.

Making a meal with your partner can be one of the most romantic things you can do.  It’s a fun and cheap way to enjoy yourself on a date night, and a simple way to get closer to your partner.  The best part about this is getting a home cooked meal – and who can resist the simple pleasure of eating in the comfort of your own home?

However, you do want to make sure you’re enjoying your meals, not suffering through them.  Many individuals find it hard to maintain healthy dining habits because they don’t want to sacrifice taste for a decrease in calories and fat.  Luckily, you don’t have to compromise taste for health, as it’s possible to have a dining experience that satisfies both your taste buds and your body.

What’s more is that it’s simple and rewarding to cook a great meal at home and share it with that special someone.  Your significant other will appreciate that you care about their health.  In addition, dining together will go far in strengthening the romantic bond you already share with each other.

Make the meal with your partner and feed each other while you’re cooking.  This can be a very intimate and sensual experience, so get creative!

The following is a recipe for two that will not only satiate your hunger, but will provide a romantic evening at home:

Lamar Odom has something special planned for wife Khloe Kardashian on their one-year-anniversary; he’s just not sharing.  “I kind of got to keep it a secret,” explained Odom to Us Weekly.  Kardashian was also tight-lipped.  “I don’t know.  I found out that there’s a surprise happening, but I have no idea – and I don’t want to know.”  The couple, who married after a quick one-month courtship, have faced scrutiny about the depth of their marriage.  “I’ve never faulted people for [that],” says Kardashian.  “I totally get it.  I’ve always said from day one that it’s real love, and it is, but I’ve never, ever was angry with anyone for thinking anything that way.  I was only upset when people said we had a fake wedding.”  Despite criticism, the couple are standing strong and hope to have a child in the near future.
