Fall is here and the leaves are changing colors, jackets are beginning to be pulled from the closets, football has started, children are getting ready for Halloween candy and everyone is thinking about their Thanksgiving feast. To celebrate this wonderful season, I decided to plan a romantic autumn dinner for two. My goal was to come up with a luxury menu for the cooler weather by adding a little southern twist to it. I decorated the table with things that I had purchased from an auction. It’s amazing what you can find at those local auctions. The menu consists of many fall’s comfort foods that are grown to warm the body and soul. This menu starts with a delicious soup to a fall salad and ending with a fulfilling main course served with an apple-pear cider. Oh, and Let me not forget, Dessert!
