Happy Monday Bloggies! (Also, a belated happy Father’s Day to the dads out there.)
One of the highlights of the weekend was a little cocktail party at our friends’ house. With 4 couples, 4 babies all under the age of 11 months, and 4 bottles of wine, we all had a great time!
Ava found a boyfriend, he’s 4 days older than her. Shhhh…don’t tell – we were watching.
We drank some delicious wines. This was one of my favorites of the evening. The 2007 Schug Pinot Noir. While I usually favor bigger, bolder reds like merlots and cabs over pinot, this one was smoother and had a little more body than many. I liked the medium body and rich fruit flavor. I think it even tasted a bit of vanilla. An excellent red for the 100 degree evening!
It was good, but I think I was still savoring the delicious pinot to much to really enjoy it.
Sarah made some simpe, light and tasty romaine boats. You would never guess that a little sea salt, pepper, Girard’s Light Caesar dressing, and fresh grated parmesan could taste so good. Caesar salad without a fork! (A few had anchovies…swoons!)
The rest of the spread. I brought spring rolls and peanut sauce, they are hiding to the top right behind my wine glass.
One of the women that was there is a cheese conisseur. Check her out at www.cheese-chick.com. She brought some amazing cheeses, but unfortunately, I forgot to keep track of the names/types. I definitely have a lot to learn about cheese.
What a fun night with a great group of friends!
What was the best part of your weekend?
