Date Night // Roasted Tomato + Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Written with love, by Sarah-Elizabeth Stone

It’s official! Fall has breezed in and delighted every woman between the ages of… well who are we kidding, probably all of us. Latte in hand, we reorganize our closets to bring forward all things knit, cashmere, warm and fuzzy. Out fly the wraps, ponchos and pashminas that go perfectly with your new fall boots. You sigh, satisfied with your new pumpkin spice candles, warm throw and matching table cloth. I call this season, ‘Autumn Nesting’, and it’s not for the faint of heart. Determined to channel the season, some women brave the still overly warm afternoons in Fall attire, simply to be in it. One thing is for sure, there is nothing like a warm, melty sandwich to tap into that autumn goddess.

3.       Let cook for roughly 5-8 minutes

4.       Over medium-high heat cook bacon and set aside on a paper towel to cool

5.       Butter bread, and put one slice of cheese on each side. Pick one side for the bacon to go on, and put the tomatoes on the opposite side, this way the cheese will melt the sandwich ‘closed’
