Cool Summer Wines 8.19.13

We gathered at Jed and Greta's to celebrate the dog days of summer with cool white wines.

We were treated to course after course of amazing food!

 real men know how to wrap spring rolls

 shrimp and vegetable spring rolls

 cool cucumber soup with a hint of spiciness

 flavorful cod

the richest chocolate dessert known to man

I was so busy catching up with everyone, I failed to get photos of the wine bottles.  Cody and I brought a Bergerac Sec we picked up in France.  If you want, please leave a comment reminding me what type/vineyard you all brought??

After a leisurely dinner, we took a field trip to Jordan and Emily's new house not even half a block away.  I think we were all a bit shocked to see what exactly Jordan means by a "blow out remodel."
I think not one inch of that house remains untouched by construction.

The moon was full, our stomachs were full, and our hearts were full.
