No need to go to a restaurant (too late for reservations) and spa packages are expensive. For you men who need a little advice on what to do, I’ve got you covered.

What to make for breakfast? How about breakfast in bed with a tray laden with flowers from your own back yard and a plate of nutritious and delicious Chocolate Chip Belgium Waffles. You can impress themother of your children by pointing out that this recipe has lots of fiber, thanks to the wheat bran and whole-wheat flour. Paired up with dark chocolate chips and fresh berries, you have anti-oxidants and vitamins. She can pile on the syrup or low-fat whipped cream and not feel totally guilty!
