Friday Night Dates : 12

I'm inviting romance into my life
one Friday Night Date at a time
and documenting each one here on my little ol' blog.

I want to remember every detail
of these splendid home spun dates.


Date #12


Oh my stars...I just have to say that
the Lemon-honey spritzer was
one of the most fantastic drinks I've ever sipped on.
It's the perfect combination,
the lemonade is tart,
the champagne bubbles in your mouth,
and then the honey coats your tongue.
The feta was so yummy while
When In Rome was silly and sweet.
Just like our love!

Here are the recipes...

Lemon Honey Spritzer

1/2 (6 ounce can) frozen concentrate, thawed
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
2 tablespoons honey, warmed

Combine the lemonade and Grand Marnier in a pitcher. Add the honey, stirring until dissolved. Stir in champagne. Pour into glasses, garnish with strawberries.

Baked Feta with Lemon and Herbs

2 blocks of feta cheese
1/4 cup of oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 lemon sliced and divided
1 orange sliced and divided
fresh rosemary, oregano, and parsley
pita chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small oven proof dish, place blocks of feta, and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top evenly with half of lemon and orange slices. Arrange rosemary, oregano, and parsley around cheese.

2. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Top with remaining half of lemon and orange slices, and garnish with rosemary, oregano, and parsley. Serve with pita chips.

I LOVED 'When in Rome'! I thought it was such a cute movie!

I love how all your themed snacks and drinks come together so perfectly.

Sadly, we are still lame over here. One of these days, though, One of these day!
