{Wine Wednesday} Thanksgiving pie wine pairings


While I’m busy chopping and prepping items for tomorrow’s big Thanksgiving celebration (I’m making my turkey-shaped appetizer platters from 2013 AND 2014), I’ll leave you with this chart on Thanksgiving pie wine pairings from VinePair. (They’re the best!)

VinePair also posted wine, beer and booze Thanksgiving pairings in 2014, which might come in handy for your celebrations!  

Photos of my spreads to come tomorrow! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving eve!


{Wine Wednesday} Christmas cookie & wine pairing

‘Tis the night before Christmas and I’m excited! We’ve been celebrating the holidays all month (sorry for my lack of posting!) and the next few days promise to be full of great company, food, and wine!

We’re celebrating Christmas with my family this evening and I’ve been assigned dessert for our feast. Here’s a sneak peek of some of the goodies we’re bringing:

Leave it to VinePair to read my mind and send this “favorite Christmas cookie and wine pairings” infographic. Sadly none of the cookies we’re bringing are on this list. But, I’m sharing it with you in hopes that you’ll be able to better pair your cookies and wine. 

Have a wonderful Christmas eve and check back tomorrow for our magical 2014 family Christmas photo!
