Autumn Date Night

The fall is the perfect time to get together and rekindle a relationship with your significant other or a best friend. Chad and I planned an autumn date night filled with cozy comfort foods, fancy grilled cheese and creamy tomato soup. I added some fall flowers and colorful gourds and our evening was complete.

My favorite combination was was brie and fig spread. Chad loves the bacon, avocado and pepper jack. We also enjoyed double cheese and cheddar, apple and spicy mustard sandwiches.
