On the weekend I decided to dedicate a night to indulging in two of the things I love most in this world - cheese and wine! Combining the two is ALWAYS a good idea. I felt like hanging out with the girls and having a few drinks without having to organise taxis and outfits ( gah, the worst part of going out!) and I have to say that being in stumbling distance to my bed was a pretty awesome perk ha ha!
Moving on, what is a cheese and wine night without CHEESE?!
Oh sweet lord, so so much cheese. But not too much, because too much cheese doesn't exist in my world.
I bought a small bunch of these white flowers from the supermarket to spruce up the table but it just wan't enough so I went through a wander out in the garden and picked a whole bunch of jasmine, leaves, and pretty much anything else that had botanical qualities! As you can see I ended up with three vases/ jugs and added some candles to set the scene.
Brassiere Breads' olive and rosemary loaf, the cheese pictured above ( with little flags marking which was which), quince jelly, fresh figs and sesame sticks for starters! The arrival of my girlfriends saw many other delicious goods added to the table, albeit for a short time before I devoured them!
I of course had wine too, however the stupid picture kept uploading sideways wahhhhh!
My bestie bought along some macarons and mini gelato cones! You can see why she is my BFFE right?
Such an awesome night and the best part was that there was no cooking involved so all the more time to chat , eat and drink the night away!
Do you love wine and cheese? What do you and your friends do when you get together?
