In the Afterglow…


I still had a bit of a buzz early this morning, after two holiday dinners at home in a row, and when I took a look at the bottles of bubbly and wine we consumed between say 25 people, only 18 of whom drank more than the champagne at the opening toast, I wasn’t surprised at all… And that photo doesn’t include doubles and triples from the first evening, they had been disposed of before we could think to add them to this photo… Guests were emailed a menu a few days before, and they all figured out what wine to bring along to pair with the food. Let’s just say everyone seemed to have had a really good time. :)


There is a need for a few hours to recover after a week long, but totally enjoyable marathon to prep for the meals, so I’ll leave you with two links here and here to Downton Abbey spoofs sent to me by one of the dinner guests last night. They are totally worth watching if you are a fan of the show and just pining away for the Christmas Special in a few more days. In the meantime, stay tuned for a chance to win roundtrip tickets from Manila to Cebu and free meals at Zubuchon and an overnight hotel stay as a thank you from Marketman & Zubuchon to all of you out there. Yup, it’s totally free. :)
