Photos from our Coffee Table

Hello my long lost blogger friends. I have been trying to be disciplined and keep the wedding updates flowing on the wedding blog, which has sadly distracted me from posting here. We are still recovering from the amazingness that was our wedding and honeymoon, trying as hard as possible not to let reality set back in, if we can help it. I do have some new ideas brewing of things I would like to share here, one of those being "Photos from our Coffee Table".

Like many young couples, we don't eat our meals at the dinner table. We have a dinner table, but it is usually piled with mail and dry cleaning and other non-food items. We usually have the television on with both laptops going while we eat dinner on the sofa. I know it may not seem the most romantic thing, but sometimes we get try to get fancy in our own way. So I am going to try to make a weekly habit of posting, dinner from the coffee table. Although the event is casual, the food can be elegant, especially since we are attempting to pair our newly acquired California wine with our meals.

So I leave you with a little sampling we did last weekend with my Mother and Michael. We opened the first bottle of white from the trip to California. It was the Chardonnay from Summer's Reserve in Calistoga. We paired it with a Camembert cheese, baguette and fresh strawberries. A great bottle of wine enjoyed not at a fancy French restaurant, but on the couch with family.

you could do a whole blog on just the 'photos from your coffeetable'.... but then you'd have that AND the new website to keep up with.
