Maybe a nice homemade creamy tomato soup and some "gourmeted" fancy small grilled cheese sandwiches??

Love the idea of gourmet grilled cheese sands... awesome.

You might also want to try Danielle's Butternut Squash Soup - made with mexican cream (seriously good) http://peacefulcooking.blogspot.com/2010/11/pom-roasted-butternut-squash-soup-and.html

It was awesome...

If you want gourmet grilled cheese... these are awesome too!
Not totally gourmet... but so good!! I often make them for a crowd.

Cheddar Scallion Panini


Extra Sharp White Cheddar shredded and tossed with sliced scallions... between buttered slices of rye bread and grilled.

My family and friends ALWAYS request these.
