Mariachi Madness 5.4.2017

We are starting to learn that Jordan always has a surprise up his sleeve when it comes to wine dinner. Part way into our delicious Mexican themed dinner matched with wines from Cotes du Rhone, a Mariachi band came through the front door and treated us to a private concert.  Toe tapping, sombrero wearing, sing along goodness ensued.

Perhaps the photos will tell more of the story of the evening.

Can I Get a Kangaroo with That? 1.28.2017

Paul and Jackie chose the mysterious, yet oh so tasty wine of Austria for our January wine dinner.  Then Paul proceeded to create the most unbelievably good Austrian food I've ever tasted.  I had schnitzel once in Germany at a famous German restaurant, made by Germans! And Paul made it better.  He really did!  I hate to say I was surprised...but hey, I kinda was!  I mean, he's a good cook and all, but he truly outdid himself (and the Germans) for this meal.

And as Jed says, the spaetzle Paul made was very special, indeed.

I could go on and on, but I'll let the photos speak for themselves:

And last but not least, I had to document the "twins"

Italy 11.10.2016

We hosted a wine dinner at our house shortly after the presidential election.  Not only was this several months ago, but I'm fairly certain I was drowning my sorrows that evening.  All I remember is we served some food I had bought on a recent trip to Italy.  I also shared a wine I had purchased there.  I have only 1 photo from the event.  Thankfully, it's of the food, not my tear-stained post-election face.
