Fire Roasted Tomato Soup
No matter where you are in a relationship, you always need to make time for date night whether it's a night at the movies, going out to dinner or making dinner and snuggling on the couch. It's that important time to get out of the ordinary and just focus on the two of you. This is one of my favorite date night recipes, grilled cheese sandwiches with fire-roasted tomato soup. Perfect for a cold night in like tonight!
