New Tradition

At the end of spring semester, Phil and I enjoyed a fantastic night out with my friend Heidi and her husband Eric at their Restaurant 62. We decided to make it a tradition, so after summer semester, we decided to celebrate at our place. But first we took Eric on a wine tour of Bellingham.
Eric knows more about wine that I thought possible. He is one of those people that can blindly test a wine and tell you the varietal, region, and probably even the year! It's crazy. Since wine is so much less expensive here in the states, we took him to see our selection in Costco and at Trader Joes. I think he was in Heaven!!!!! He was amazed at how much cheaper it was.
So we grabbed a few bottles, including bottle of bubbly, a whole bunch of cheese, and headed back to our place. Technically the main course was tomato-basil chicken with parmesan, and grilled corn on the cob, but we basically feasted on our appetizers of cheese (smoked gouda, goat, brie, beer cheese, and a hard cheese that i forget the name of), salami, crackers, edmame beans and caprese salad. It was the perfect way to celebrate being done and enjoy each other's company. Thanks for the fun night!
