Last night I headed over to my friend Naisha’s apartment for a wine and cheese party. We were told to bring a bottle of wine, a cheese to go with it and if we wanted, a dish to share.
I decided to bring over Tuscarora Red, one of the bottles I purchased from Rockridge Vineyards at the wine festival earlier this month. I got a little fancy with my cheese and made caprese skewers with basil from the plant on our balcony. I made them in advance so all I had to do was drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar over them before I left.
I also made a pasta salad. I started with a box of original Suddenly Salad and added some additional tri-color rotini, red pepper, green pepper, the rest of the cherry tomatoes, the rest of the mozzarella and some italian dressing. Simple and quick.
There were 8 of us total and we all sampled a few of the wines before settling in to chat and snack with a glass of our favorite.
I’m so happy that the girls I’m meeting down here are all turning out to be such great friends.
