When people cook for you, to me, it’s an expression of love. So when one of my friends said she was making roasted lamb, sweet potatoes, delicate crispy kale and turkey bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers for dinner — another friend and I grabbed bottles of bubbles and wine then took the trek to her house.

We started with a Cremant de Bourgogne and then moved to Champagne (bubbles are always a great start!). Once dinner was served, we enjoyed a few bottles of red wine. Yes, a few bottles (it was a good night, lol).

There was so much laughter, yummy food and plenty good of wine. Good times!
