Matthew and Ana’s wine-paired soiree

Lets just make it clear off the bat: I was so drunk for most of this dinner. The photos are not great for that reason. Matthew served us so much good wine, and I kept having glass after glass. I had so much fun. Here’s to good friends, and meeting new ones! WHAT A GREAT DINNER PARTY!!!

[Insert photo of roast beef here: unfortunately at this point I was so wasted I could hardly stop smiling and chatting to take a photo. We were all so smashed!]

Delicious! Sherry trifle: light fruit cocktail, sherry, cake layer, and lightly sweetened whipped cream
