I will have a 1, 2, or 3 week old added to my 4 yo and 2 yo.

I'm going to need this. Not sure I'll be able to make it, but I'll certainly try.

Nov. 5th would be first choice, Oct. 29th second.

Nov. 12th would be impossible, son's wedding weekend.

I hope our kids get to be friends!

Looking like Nov 5 is the leading date so far...

With these pregnancy taste buds, it means pretty much any red is fair game. The heavier it is, the less interested I am -- so bring on the PS!

molarchae really does want to do wines she won't miss. So we can go with that theme. She'll certainly swish/spit some, but we can focus on reds. Big reds, even.

I'll probably make some meat. Bring wine and other dishes and we'll be good to go!

Well, let's make sure you've got enough time to enjoy the fun! Would a 5pm start work? I'll plan on grilling/torching meat closer to 6:30 or so, but no reason snacking and drinking can't start earlier.

We're going to make some meat!
And put out some other goodies, maybe an apple crisp as well. Possibly some pesto pasta, if the homemade pesto is still left over.

We'll also be receiving a small care package.

Not sure what I'm going to open, but it'll likely be tannic and/or Syrah!

Well, we do have some cheese I could fry up. So maybe a repeat is in order!

Also...what do you mean best thing I've ever made?! Sous vide meat doesn't count? Brisket?
