Now that we’re almost at the end of the semester at Arizona State it’s time to take a bit of breather with the usual cast of drinking cohorts. The final birthing push for some classes included actively spitting on the young punks for group projects and writing a paper titled “Paris: The Effects of Segregation and Social Issues on Urban Form”. Ughh, yeah, makes me a little bit nauseous too.
I need to organize a little fete Post Turkey Day and Pre Candy Cane overdose. I have found that sending a smoke signal out for a Ladies Wine Potluck is the best way to bring out the Wine Tramp in all of us. Last time it brought out the Adventures of Michelle Little Black Sweater one of my all time favorite blog posts. The mission is to bring an appetizer and a bottle of wine to share.
We can tell our spousal units we’re doing Christmas shopping and surf instead for online opportunities. Since you can never ever go wrong giving wine as a gift I can recommend the ease of purchase in the UK at SerenataWines. They have a large collection of fine wines for you to partake in or even wet your whistle. Of course it would be even better to send a little something to me, I’m on Santa’s naughty list so I’m only expecting coal from the big fat elf. My contribution to the overeating event is below.
Sun Dried Tomato Cheese Spread
8 ounces cream chees
½ cup softened unsalted butter
½ cup grated parm cheese
½ cup drained dried tomatoes and 2 Tablespoons of the oil
1 tablespoons fresh basil
Run the whole gambit through the food processor and serve with water table crackers.
Wine goes back to 8000 BC years according to my main source of all information, Wikipedia. Who was the first caveman to realize leaving fruit fermenting would turn into nectar of the gods? Maybe we’ll spend a little time playing Wine Jeopardy, I’ll take Roman Empire wines for $200. We all know I’ve a steel trap for random facts like there are 43, 560 square feet in an acre. I can’t retain anything like Sheldon’s social security number for the tax accountant. Pucker up Alex Trebek, I’ m going for Double Jeopardy.
