Food for Lover’s

You don’t always need a sitter for a date night with your lover.  Here’s a simple solution:

First of all, send the kids to their rooms with a good movie and popcorn, and let them know that you may be kissing their father/mother on your date night in. They’ll never come out.

Make sure you’ve purchased the following:

  • A great bottle of wine, like Bella Glos Pinot Noir

  • Good cheeses, like Brie, a Danish Blue, and a  some kind of sharp cheese
  •  Castelvetrano olives
  • Dates
  • Roasted red peppers
  • Hard salami (as in the food)
  • Honey for dipping
  • A loaf of crusty bread
  • Mushrooms
  • Sausage
  • Pecorino Romano
  • Parsley
  • Olive Oil

Find a simple white platter and add to it the cheeses, bread (cubed), roasted red peppers, dates (which pair well when eaten with the Danish blue) olives, honey for dipping, and salami.

Then  create the “entree” of your tapas experience; stuffed mushrooms. You can click on the link for a great recipe: stuffed mushrooms

Next, warm a wedge of brie in the oven, and when it’s melted and slightly brown, add some cubed bread alongside the cheese.

Then sit down together and enjoy the decadence of your creation, with a glass of red wine and the music of your choice! Make sure you never turn the TV on! Just enjoy your love.

Thank you Doug for a wonderful date night in! I love you.
