How convenient that a “recovery” week and a busy week preparing for our little dinner party fell in the same week. I’ve been crazy busy, but in a good way. I’m probably about to bore most of my readers, but I need to write this someplace I won’t lose it. If we do this again next year, I’ll want notes. ;o) Glaven, please get a towel to wipe up your drool, ok?
Three cheeses (an Irish aged cheddar, a gruyere and a tallegio), red grapes, almonds, and cashews
Beer: Black Sheep Ale poured in a British style pint glass
Mixed greens with mini mozzarella balls, toasted walnuts, vidalia onion, and prosciutto with a peach vinaigrette
Beer: Dogfish Head Festina Peche poured in a pilsner glass
German sausages cooked in beer and then grilled, spaetzle, green beans
Beer: Schneider Aventinus poured in a wiezen glass
Some sort of chocolate, possibly with cherries (I’m off to buy that in just a couple of minutes)
Beer: Kriek poured in a champagne glass
Vertical tasting of Alaskan Smoked Porter – 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006
And yes, I do have that many glasses. The only ones I had to buy for the party were the champagne glasses LOL.
Thanks for all the compliments on my hair. I’m loving how easy it is to deal with in the morning. Glaven, yes, I really do go to Wisconsin to get my hair done. Of course, the fact that my parents live there may have something to do with that….
Hopefully I’ll get a run in tomorrow, but I’m pencilling a hangover in for the morning. ;o)

Mmmmmm, can I come?
I need a towel for the drool, too! It sounds FAB! Enjoy!
Thank goodness you don’t have pics of the spread or I would be licking my screen right now. The descriptions alone are driving me nuts! Have fun!
Oh my that all sounds delicious!
Ooh, I’m the one taking notes. Looks fantastic. Enjoy!And by the way, I like your haircut although it’s not a huuuge change. Somehow hairstylists always manage to insult me. Esp. if they’re male.
You got me with all the different glasses. I don’t even know what most of those are!
NO MERE HYOO-MAHN TOWEL CAN CONTAIN MY DROOL, sister!I intend to do a little beer sampling of my own this weekend.Teh ‘Bride lurves porter almost as much as she does stout. Once the beers get lighter than that, tho, she loses interest. I accidentally brought a bottle of the Trappist Ale (lightish color) I brewed to the BYOB restaurant we ate at last Friday and Teh ‘bride went, “Meh”.It wasn’t great – but it was better than “meh”!I would like all of those beers you’re serving but – ahem – my invitation to your soirée evidently got lost in the mail.Next time send it certified, sister.Have a great long weekend!
Yum! Sounds like a fun party.
Oh YUMMY!! That sounds so good and FUN. Enjoy!
Oooh, that sounds deeelish!!
Wow, that’s a dinner party!
