Dinner at Dave's

Cooked dinner for some special company tonight. Clam spaghetti, in a simple sauce of tomatoes and onion, simmered in fresh clam stock and white wine. I think I did a good job, but then judging shouldn't be left up to me.

Had some great wines, along with masterful cuts of bread and brie.

Thank you both, for the conversation and the friendship. It's hard when you get out of school to see everyone regularly, and I value my friends more than anything. More than that, it's being with friends who you can talk to. Given the right wines, the right food, I feel we can talk well into the night. Who says 20 year olds are all club-going fiends? I'm not. And I don't think my closest friends are too.

And Pris, I wanted to let you know - I have your ring. I like it so much that I'm not giving it back. It just looks too dead sexy on me - you're just going to have to buy another one.

Now, sappy things over - I want my friends to experience the wonderful things I'm tasting in wine. We've done Champagne, Rioja, Loire........moving on to rieslings, both German and Niagara. And of course, more Champagne - the Jacquart was a bit too simple. Let's move on to bigger and better things.


  1. next time I see you, you must be wearing the ring! Then I can judge whether you are truly sexy in it or not. lol.

    the rioja was amazing! thanks lots for the nice dinner :)

  2. Second on the dinner, David! It was delicious. I believe that the rioja was the night's favorite...

    and miley cyrus is as awesome as my knife skillz.


  3. Thank you, thank you both.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the Rioja. Some people don't understand the more mature characteristics of the wine, but true connoisseurs always appreciate it.

    I'm not taking the ring off, it won't leave my finger! And well......those cuts of bread were magnificent, so I don't know if that comparison is fair. I can appreciate that she's a millionaire many times over, but Hannah Montana is just awful...
