Just a teaser…

So, yes…James and I were complete slackers last Sunday and didn’t post (trust me, we heard enough from Philemon about it)!  BUT we have a great excuse!  Well, Philemon, Amy, Robby, Elaine, James and moi all road tripped it to Charleston, SC for a few days.  James’ mother (thanks so much, Millie!) scored us tickets to Southern Living’s Taste of Charleston aaaaaaaaaaand it so happens that Phil’s family owns a vacation home in Rockville.  Add the two together, throw in a chef, 5 friends with big appetites and quite a few bottles of wine…and VOILA!  You have a recipe for a wonderful weekend with friends in an awesome city!  James prepared an insanely gourmet 4 course meal that paired perfectly with 5 bottles of fancy-smancy wine which each couple brought.  Here are a few pics from the weekend as a teaser so you’ll have to come back for the wine reviews!


Robby, James and Phil enjoying a glass of wine before a stroll to the water.


A couple of the weekend starter wines.

2nd course...wanna know what it is? Guess you'll have to check back next week!


Robby had his wine glasses on after a few glasses o' vino.


Phil explaining the starting wine while Amy, Elaine, Robby & James listen intently.


So, all-in-all…lots ‘o food and lots ‘o REALLY good wine!  Which bottles did we pick?…stay tuned to find out!

    Looks like y’all had an awesome time! Please let me know next time you are heading to Chahleston for a little get away – Matt and I are often there to visit his family. It would be fun if we ended up there over the same weekend at some point!
