Date Night at Home [Brookside Chocolate Giveaway]

how to make a cheese trayOne of the hardest things about moving to a new city is finding a babysitter. Babysitters rule the world. When you know no one in a new town, it can be hard to find someone you trust to watch your children so that you and your husband and can get out and have a date night. And date nights are really important. I love hanging out with my kids, but it is also nice to put some makeup on and order from a menu that does not include chicken fingers. So how do you stay connected without a babysitter? What is a girl to do? Put the kids to bed early and have a date night at home.

One of our favorite things to do is have a wine and cheese night. I make us a nice cheese tray, grab some red wine, and pick up a few fancy desserts. We put on a movie, snuggle on the couch and have a nice date without having to leave the house. It feels fancy, but really, all it took was a quick trip to the cheese section of the grocery store.

When I make a cheese tray, I like to have a nice variety of cheeses, for just us, 3 is fine. But if I were having a larger get together, I would try for 5. My husband is a huge blue cheese lover, so I almost always start with a Gorgonzola Dolce. Then I like to have a creamy triple cream, so St. Andre is usually my choice. Then I like to round it out with something with a little sharpness, like an aged gouda. If I am adding two more, I add a sharp cheddar or something hard like Parmesan.

What else? You need something to serve cheese on, so fresh baguette and crackers of course. Grapes and strawberries are good. Nuts. I like something that is crunchy. I like to have some chutney or jelly to add to the creamy cheeses. And something sweet. Brookside Chocolates are perfect to round out a cheese tray. Dark chocolate covered acai, pomegranate, and goji fruit juice pieces. These chocolate covered delights are also full antioxidants and pair perfectly with a nice glass of red wine. Wine and chocolate? Yes. Please.

    I love cheese. I really do. If I had to pick a favourite it might be either brie or havarti. Mmmm. Cheese.

  2. Caroline @ chocolate & carrots

    January 23rd, 2013 at 7:17 am

    What a great idea! I know that date nights are hard to come by with kiddies. This is perfect! I love brie cheese sooo much. I think I could eat it with anything. πŸ˜€

    it’s so hard to only pick one kind of cheese, but if i had to pick a favorite i would definitely have to go wit mozzarella.

  4. Sarah

    January 23rd, 2013 at 7:31 am

    This idea is so perfect. I was just thinking about how moving to a new city is really hard– we just moved to Memphis from South Carolina– and a lack of date nights certainly can make the transition WAY more emotionally difficult.

  6. Brianna

    We haven’t found a great babysitter yet either. So we too have lovely date nights at home. Yesterday we have watched one of the Lord of the rings movies together, with a nice glass of wine and some snacks. It might be nerdy, but we love those evenings!

    Great shots, as always!

  8. Mary Happymommy

    I’m lactose intolerant so I don’t eat cheese, unfortunately! Can I say my husband loves Swiss cheese?

  9. Kel

    January 23rd, 2013 at 8:42 am

    Pepper jack or jalsberg are my favorite – thanks!

  10. Sarah

    January 23rd, 2013 at 8:51 am

    Brie is definitely my favorite cheese. Yum!

  11. Molly

  15. sara

  19. Michelle

    January 23rd, 2013 at 10:10 am

    What a fun idea. We have a restaurant in Denver that we love to go to just for the meat and cheese board. Chocolate and cheese sounds way more fun. I would do anything for Brie!

  20. Jennifer

    January 23rd, 2013 at 10:15 am

    Thanks for the great idea…my husband and I need to do date nights at home a lot more often!

  21. Jennifer

    January 23rd, 2013 at 10:17 am

    My favorite cheese is asiago!

  22. Amy S

    How to pick just one cheese? I’ll say Parmesan because it makes everything better!

  23. Chelsea

    January 23rd, 2013 at 10:20 am

    I was having issues with the comment form on your mobile site–sorry if this gets posted 5 times! I’m from Wisconsin, so any cheese is good cheese!

  24. Aimee

    January 23rd, 2013 at 10:31 am

    I love the idea of date night at home. We don’t have kids yet, but we are trying to pay off debt so we don’t eat out. This would be perfect for us!

  25. Heather

    January 23rd, 2013 at 10:41 am

    I love Brie. MMMM….so, so good!

  26. Meghan @ Cake 'n' Knife

    January 23rd, 2013 at 10:47 am

    It’s soooo hard for me to choose but if I absolutely had to it would be between goat cheese and brie…. YUM.

  27. Jennifer | Mother Thyme

    January 23rd, 2013 at 10:51 am

    What a lovely giveaway. My husband and I rarely get a chance to have a date night so we often have date nights at home as well. We love cheese, my favorite is manchego but there are many that are on the top of my list.

  28. hannah v

    January 23rd, 2013 at 11:05 am

    If I haaad to pick a favorite I guess I’d say I love brie the most

  29. Ann

    January 23rd, 2013 at 11:07 am

    Goat cheese is my favorite, but I’ve never met a cheese I didn’t like. We have a one year old, and haven’t had a dinner out together since he was born, so this would be a perfect night in!

  30. Erin

    January 23rd, 2013 at 11:09 am

    Yum!

    And I’ll be your babysitter! Maybe that’s creepy to say but your kids are too sweet.

  31. Kari M

    January 23rd, 2013 at 11:22 am

    Goat cheese is my favorite, hands-down!

  32. Corey

    January 23rd, 2013 at 11:29 am

    I could live on wine, chocolate, cheese, and bread! My favorites would have to be Parmesan, Gorgonzola, and Brie!

  33. Throuthehaze

    January 23rd, 2013 at 11:32 am

    Gouda is my favorite.

  34. Jen

    January 23rd, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    We like to do date nights at home, even though we don’t have the worry of real children (just a furry black and white one!), to save a little money when the budget gets tight. And we can get dressed up and still wear slippers πŸ™‚ I’m definitely employing the cheese and chocolate board date night ASAP!

  51. courtney

    January 23rd, 2013 at 1:12 pm

    ahhhh this sounds delightfully wonderful, what could possibly be better than cheese?! beautiful dishes and chocolate to serve with it!!! I absolutely love this giveaway!

  62. Lauren

    I will eat almost any cheese you put in front of me. This past weekend, we got the “earthy brie” from Wegman’s. It was a little stinky and oh so good! I have been thinking about it since.

  76. Diane Troxell

    January 23rd, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    Fontina!! It’s one of the first cheeses that converted me into a cheese lover (which was long overdue).

    Can I have a date night with you??? LOL. I am really enjoying smoked Gouda these days, but goat cheese, herbed harvarti and Boursin are a few of my favs.

    My favorite kind of date night. πŸ™‚ I’m partial to a nutty aged gouda – the older the better! Old Amsterdam is a fave, and you can’t deny Trader Joe’s 1,000 Day Old Gouda when they have it in stock. Great post.

    You sound a lot like my mom. She loves cheese trays and wine. And I’m sure you just described her perfect date night. πŸ™‚

    Unlike my mom, I’m not really a cheese person. Even my dad can take out a block of cheddar and slice himself a good chunk and eat it whole. I can’t do that. But I’ve taken a liking to a single sliver of swiss cheese on my turkey sandwiches, and when I make mac and cheese I use gruyere; now that is a nice cheese.

    I’d have to say brie – especially with some kind of fruit spread/honey with it.
