George, we must be related! :-)

In my family wine, tennis, short pants on men --were all seen as peculiarities of the upper classes.

Although there was a dim awareness that those ...err...'Italians' in the North End and Eastie drank wine with their 'spaghetti and meatballs.'

I grew up in Eastie.
One of my . . . err . . . 'Italian' neighbors grew grapes in his yard and made his
own wine.

@dyslexia,
A nice, bubbly spumante, perhaps? Wink

@msolga,
When exactly is Thanksgiving? (I thought it was something like the 4th Thursday in November, but I've probably got my wires crossed.)

@George,
George,

Before I retired I lived in a Portuguese neighborhood in Providence, RI.
Almost every house in my area had a grape arbor that all those Portuguese families used to grow grapes for wine. the same used to be true in the Italian neighborhoods of Providence.

@msolga,
I had to ask that too... just got back from my trip, and I have no life indicators re kids in school.
Luckily, Diane was on top of it.

I'll be pie queen, or else, pie dog. I too hope I have everything. I did get a kick out of going to sunflower market, went a little crazy on cheese. Port salut and farm bread for breakfast.

@ossobuco,
That sounds good. I'll make my own cake tomorrow, and some Florentines - I got a taste for it after we talked about it in Swimpy's thread.

@CalamityJane,
One of my joys of going to sunflower market is their bulk section. Ooh lah lah. First I'll do some spicy roasting. Next, florentines.

I went mad for cashews after Marina's h'ordeuvres.. raw cashews and olive oil and chile, roasted (this is routine to me, but I don't usually use cashews) plus all the other stuff she had. I had to clamp my arm from cashew eating.

Speaking of memories: Mateus Rose

We tried, we did, to drink all of the Mateus Ros'e in the world. At one point or another, there were probably twenty empties with candles in them scattered around our house in San Angelo, Texas.

My brother picks out the wine for dinner. I will let you know.

@Joe Nation,
I always hated the Mateus.. but I always loved my aunt. Over the years one or two of us would bring the odd bottle to try.. while still taking a bit of the Mateus.
