Recipe for Sex Challenge: Cobb Salad


Welcome to the first week of the Recipes for Sex Challenge. Right off the bat I feel obligated to admit that I replaced the bacon in this classic salad with pickled beets. So go ahead and take a moment to get over it if you need to, it’s still an awesome [cobb] salad. This was my first recipe for sex in this whole food/sex experiment....so I was feeling a little nervous. Which I guess accounts for why I just totally spaced on the bleu cheese too....

Some of this had to do with the fact that I have not yet told my husband that I am doing this whole thing. I mean, I figured if people are going to take this challenge, their spouses/significant others/randoms they hook up with might not know either...so let’s keep it authentic, right?

Anyway, I made the dang salad, and we ate it for dinner. It was great, but not too filling. And then I became skeptical that the sex was going to happen....why? Because we had a fight. That’s right, a fight. We were yelling and hemming and hawing and all the usual fight flare. Then we retreated to our corners... my corner involved nursing a horrible chocolate stout that despite it’s horrid taste, I still drank.

And then he came into my corner. And then...we had sex. Like, really dirty sex. The type of dirty sex that we haven’t had in a while, complete with booty slapping and dirty words and my husband at the end of it saying something about being sore and me laughing at him. Now, I am not going to totally credit the salad for this awesome dirty sex that left one party sore, but what I am saying? It happened.

This is part intention, part luck and part salad. Let’s break it down....
1)I was not too full to have sex. This is an important part of after dinner sex.
2)We had a disagreement which left us both feeling....passionate. Though, this was not make up sex. I don’t do make up sex.
3)When I was making this dinner, the whole time I had sex on my mind. The intention was out there. I was, in a way, getting myself in the mood for the sex to come. Intention is everything.
4)I got lucky.

For all these reasons, I urge you: take the challenge! Make the salad, get laid. Hopefully you can skip the fight in between.

Recipe for Sex: Cobb Salad 

Time: 20 ish minutes | Serves 2 | Difficulty: Easy 

You Will Need:

Two hard boiled eggs
1 chicken breast, cooked and diced (you could also use leftover chicken) 
1 onion, sliced
crumbled bleu cheese (which I forgot, but hopefully you'll remember) 
lettuce, your choice
pickled beets (to replace the bacon)
tomato
cucumber

Method

Chop the lettuce to your liking (I mixed some homegrown bibb lettuce with arugula) and split it between two plates. 

If you haven't already cooked your chicken: Salt and pepper your chicken breast. In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook your chicken breast for 6-7 minutes on each side until done (or until the internal temp. reaches 160.) Set aside to cool. Once cool, chop into cubes. 

Build you salad: pile on top of your lettuce the bleu cheese, tomato, cucumber, onion, and beets. Add chicken. Peel and slice your eggs in half and add them to the salad as well. 

Serve with red wine vinegar and olive oil or the dressing of your choice.... then go get laid and tell me how it worked out?
