"Wine Tasting Party"
Last night we held a "Wine Tasting Party" for family and friends on our newly expanded decks. The weather was perfect and the evening did not get too cool. Birds and crickets chirping all around, sounds of water running in the stream down below in the wooded ravine and good friends and wonderful family members attended. All had a great time the two hostesses were very tired at the end of the evening, but, we both agreed that it turned out great! Thanks to my daughter-in-law Janet who made all the appetizers (party meatballs, terryaki chicken strips, fruit tray, cheese platter complete with a wonderful Brie with fruit topping, sushi, etc. I made the dessers which consisted of both fruit topped mini cheesecakes and chocolate mini cheescakes topped with real whipped cream and mini chips and some wonderful key lime tartlets in phyllo tart shells. Also kolacki's from a local bakery that my dear friend Karen brough with her..
We had 13 bottles of wine from 7 different countries and a wonderful Apricot Ice Wine from Canada on the dessert table.
There were lables posted in front of each bottle of wine telling of the type and origin and date.
Later on in the week, I will post the receipe for the Key Lime Tartlets. They were the hit of the dessert trays.
Hoping you have enjoyed our little Party! It was fun and very enjoyable and I encourage anyone who wants to have a Wine Tasting Party to just go with it!
