When it comes to entertaining, most people either love it, or hate it. You can put me in the love it category, but it hasn’t always been that way. But over the last few years, we’ve made some really good friends. And those friends like any excuse to celebrate. So we are happy to oblige each year after Christmas, with our annual wine and cheese party!
Now this is not some dainty wine tasting party. This is a wine drinking party. There will be no sipping, or writing down the flavors, or anything like that. We simply try various wines, and enjoy the food, fun, and laughter. There may even be music, which isn’t the least bit surprising considering that most of my friends are musicians.
The party started out a few years ago with cubes of cheese, crackers, and a few bottles of wine. But it has grown a lot since then. There will be various hor d’oeuvres, dips, spreads, snacks, and tasty tidbits of all kinds. But mostly, there will be wine. My wine collection is never depleted after this party, because everyone brings along their favorite bottle to share. So our party is mostly about good company, and plenty of it. Cheers!
