Last Saturday was my Grandpa's birthday (don't worry, Grandpa, your secret is safe with me). My Grandpa is a wine connoisseur, so, naturally, my mom threw him a Wine and Cheese party.
(Disclaimer: I wasn't very diligent at taking pictures at the party, so we will have to make due with that I captured.)
Full spread of cheese, fruit and munchies. I think mama purchased most of the cheese from Costco.
My Grandma made little placards for each cheese; stating its origin, contents and which wine it was paired best with.
Yum-0 cheese fondue, super easy. Find the recipe here. ( I probably should havewaited to dip my bread before I took the picture, it was just so yummy, I couldn't wait!!)
We asked Gramps to give us a quick wine education, but as Grandpa goes, it was not very quick! =P
I can't take any credit for this event. I literally showed up to the party empty handed, gorged myself and didn't even help clean up, I know, shame on me! From the cheese placards to the wine glass charms, my mom thought and did it all (with some help from my dad I am sure). She doesn't miss a detail. Everything she does has thoughtfulness and love attached. I hope one day I can be like my mom, and not only by learning manners and helping out, but by learning from her so that I can make everything as special as she does!
