I haven't posted a "Happy Friday Night" post in quite sometime, but my husband and I still enjoy an appetizer and cocktail after the kids are in bed most Friday nights. Sometimes it has to wait until Saturday, but it's our little date night at home.
This one was from last week. I made grilled portobello mushrooms and gin and tonics. I'm not sure the two pair perfectly well, but gin and tonics just seem so perfect for our beautiful weather that night.
To make our mushrooms...
Marinade portobello mushroom caps in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, a tad of garlic (remember this is date night) and a sprinkling of salt. Layer them with some bruschetta (I use Trader Joe's brand), roasted red peppers, and pancetta. Top with some grated parmesan reggiano cheese. I grilled ours on low for about 15 minutes. They were so good! The mushrooms were so filling that they turned into our dinner.
To make a gin and tonic...
Fill a glass with ice and add a shot of good quality gin. Top with tonic water and a good squeeze of lime. Stir and serve.
Happy Friday Night!
