The Ultimate Gifts for the Barbeque Loving Man

Barbeques are at the top of many men's favorite things list. Usually, the passion goes along with a love for meat and various sauces. Barbeques are also a great way to get together with friends and enjoy a cookout in the hot summer months. If you are looking to get a gift for the barbeque loving man that you know, you just need to start thinking like a barbeque loving man. Images of meat might pop into your brain, and that is a great place to start.

What Goes With Great Meat? Great Beer

Buying your barbeque loving man some beer will surely put a smile on his face. Often, steaks, ribs, and chops are amazing, but he will need something to wash those flavors down with. Rich beers are often matched nicely with rich-tasting food, so try getting him a European beer, because they are often more flavorful than many of the North American brands (though there are some from this continent that are also packed with flavor). A variety pack is a nice way to accompany the man's barbeque.

Get Him a Barbeque Cookbook

Barbequing can be an art for many men, and that involves making the perfect sauce. Many men are very secretive about what they put in the steak sauce, and one of the ways they get to the point of obsession is by finding a great recipe in a cookbook and making it their own. This is an opportunity to introduce him to a variety of recipes, and allow him to find just the right one. The best part is that you might be able to taste test the food that he makes.

A Meat Thermometer Could Save His Life, and Yours

Some men might think that they can just judge whether the meat is ready by looking at it. But even celebrity chefs know that a good meat thermometer is a great option to ensure that the meat is cooked without having to open it up and lose many of its juices. After all, the technique behind cooking some of the best barbeque recipes involves flipping the meat over only once, and also ensuring that all the juices are packed in to the meat so that it remains tender and does not dry out. A meat thermometer could be just the way to cook the meat to perfection. It’s also part of the "cool gifts for guys" list. Finding the right gift could also benefit you. It is great to know a barbeque loving man, and if you buy him the right gift, you will likely get him on your good side. Once you have secured that spot, you will likely be the benefactor of many delicious barbeques. After all, your barbeque loving man won't likely want to experience his new sauce, cooked to perfection thanks to the new thermometer, alone. And the perfect way to wash down that meat is drinking a great beer beside the person who encourages his passion for barbequing: you.

Technical Support to Operate… our Husbands

Last night Hubby and I had a little LQ over a TV show and a back-scratching-com-rubbing errand that I used to do while we are watching TV. You see it has become his habit to ask me scratch and rub his back while watching TV. And yes, I ask him the same thing too. Why not, we have a saying… scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours, right? But last night he was complaining that his back hurts because he worked all day on the roof and he asked me to rub his back. I said no. Then, towards the middle of the TV program, my back itched and I asked him to scratch my back and he said no too. So I decided to sleep in the other bedroom last night. But he kept bugging me 3 times and asking me to move back to our bedroom because he said he can’t sleep without me by his side. I was surprised, because he would sometimes bitch about my snoring. He said it’s too loud he cannot sleep despite the fact that he too snores like hell [and I had it on video to prove my point].

Anyway, I didn’t want to rub his …

one year and we'll be counting

We did it. We made it. We passed it. A year of monotonously tedious ups and downs… a year of ostensibly constant struggle… a year of seemingly endless adjustment… a year of cyclically countless kisses and make ups… we are still standing strong – forgiving and forgetting each other’s shortcomings… accepting and recognizing each other’s flaws… tolerant and patient with each other’s imperfections.

And just like any normal married couple... here we are… after all the woozy marital roller coaster ride we did pass the test of time with flying colors. Here we are… after all the “I-give-up” and the “I-can’t-do-it-no-more” and the “that’s-it-I'm-done”, we still didn’t let go and kept holding on. Here we are... after all the innumerable hurts and pains we caused each other due to our own shallowness and pride, our love for each other remains stronger.

And so here we are. After all, we still have what it takes to be a couple... a couple with so much reasons to celebrate... a couple with so mu…

Panunuyo: American Version

Panunuyo is a Filipino tradition associated with courtship. There are lots of Filipino courtship traditions that are now neglected or taking a back seat in modern Pinoy romantic relationship. Gone are the days of the "harana" (serenade) because young couples nowadays have videoke to boost their relationship. But I am proud to say that I experienced "harana" when I was younger. I am not that old, okay. It was not that long ago actually. And it just so happened that in my province it was still being practiced "that" time. Anyway, I may be a Filipina at heart and a hopeless romantic that is why when I committed myself to this American guy, I had to convince myself that my being a hopeless romantic has to take back seat too.

When my Mike came to the Philippines to visit me, I was only hoping that he will like me and that the feeling will be mutual. I was just hoping that he would pop the question so that I could take the last train ride without looking back. A…
