"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Personal Notes:
This is a family favorite for a our Monday visits to the Ricky-LeeAnn LoCicero family in Gainesville, Georgia. We all share in the cooking and car-pooling responsibility ( Eli to tennis, Tucker to cross-country running, Paulina to tennis and piano, and Mary Elle to competitive cheerleading).
When we finally sit down to eat, Paulina directs the family discussion at the table with "Table Topics" cards. This leads to intimate conversation about life's issues. Right along with Lita's interest in counseling.

We top the evening off with a single malt scotch tasting. Kids not included.
