Friday Night Dates :: 17

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 #17


The champagne bubbled
and tickled our lips
as we watched love and betrayal unfold.

It was a seductive evening.

Here are the recipes...

Alouette Crème de Brie Mango-Cranberry Crostini Recipe
{Recipe from Alouette}

20 thin (¼ inch) slices French baguette
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 pkg. (5 oz.) Alouette Crème de Brie, Original
¼ cup purchased mango chutney
2 tbsp. sweetened dried cranberries
1 tbsp. snipped fresh mint leaves, if desired


Heat oven to 375° F.

Arrange baguette slices on large ungreased cookie sheet. Brush with olive oil. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly toasted and crisp.

Place on 2 serving plates and cool 1 minute. Spread each with about ½ tablespoon Alouette Crème de Brie.

In small bowl, combine chutney, and cranberries. Spoon small dollops over cheese. Garnish sparingly with mint.

Cranberry Kir Royale
{Adapted from Epicurious}

* 8 tablespoons frozen cranberry juice cocktail concentrate, thawed
* 1 1/3 cups chilled Champagne

Pour 2 tablespoons cranberry concentrate into each of 4 chilled Champagne glasses. Add 1/3 cup Champagne to each glass and serve.

Yum. My date night this weekend consisted of us spending time with two grand kiddos. It doesn't get much better than that! Oh, and the menu was juice boxes, gummy bears, and gold fish!

YUMMY! As always you have outdone yourself my friend! Everything looks fabulous!

I have not seen Dangerous Liaisons but it looks great! I will have to see if Netflix has it!

We've never seen that movie. It seemed like the kind that would drive me nuts with all the intrigue. My heart can't take it!
