I love when I get the invite to peoples house for a little get together of food, friendship and fun, don’t you? Heck, I don’t have to do anything but show up, act somewhat normal and eat! Sounds like a win to win to me 🙂 BUT, if you have never hosted one of these little shin-digs, imagine for a second what the owner of the house is going through… Is everyone happy, are drinks filled, is the food good, is too hot, is it too cold, are my kids running around like fools, etc.? Let me say first that I do not have all the answers, but can provide you with links to a killer 5 course meal of wine and food pairing videos that your guests will absolutely love. The seasons are changing and it is now ok to open up the screen door on the patio and catch the comforting fall winds, which means nice hearty dishes and deep flavored wines go hand in hand.
