More Than Just Wine and Cheese

I have lovely friends.

Some of my friends are so lovely that when it’s their time to take a break and relax (aka they’re on a break from med school), they spend all week planning a wine and cheese night instead. And what do I do? I just attend. Man, how unhelpful am I?

So I go, since that’s my one and only duty, and I’m greeted by a fabulous spread of much more than wine and cheese. I thought I was in heaven but it turns out it was just a med school dorm room full of bakeaholics.

There was homemade…
…banana bread, and carrot cake (w/ homemade frosting) and blueberry pie…

Oh yea, and wine and cheese. The wines were a choice between a German Riesling (the white) and an Argentinean Cabernet Sauvignon.

And the cheeses were cheddar, pepper jack, and an ammmmaazing pepper goat cheese which i devoured with pita chip after pita chip.

My friend also served homemade guacamole with tortilla chips, and later on, by request pulled out some of her mom’s homemade strawberry jam for dipping.

Can you say your wine and cheese night turned into dinner? I can.
