Winner Dinner

If you’ve been reading this blog since the beginning of the year, you might remember that Clyde and I gave away a homemade dinner with us as blog candy back in January.  Well, last night we made good on our blog candy promise.  The winner, Kelly brought along three fabulous friends to enjoy the blog candy.  Great conversation, delicious smoked roasts, and the fireplace kept everyone warm and happy.

Here are a few quick highlights from the evening.  First, to really start the celebration out with a little excitement, Clyde popped the top on a bottle of Missourahpagne:

Once the cap was off the bottle, we came back inside, where Clyde explained the champagne process.  Oh, and he poured a few glasses of the sparkly stuff too.

Everyone toasted to Kelly for winning:

And while waiting for Clyde to finish the roasts, I found out that Kelly loves Opera music.

We tested out different shaped wine glasses with positive results.  (I’ll definitely have to do a wine chat video on that topic soon.)  Finally we stopped talking long enough to eat:

Pretty yummy!

Thank for coming out everyone – Clyde and I had a great time and hope you enjoyed dinner!

And for everyone else out there, keep checking back on our blog here for more blog candy throughout the year!  Cheers.

    What a GREAT evening! It took me til Monday to recover. Great wine, great food and great company. You and Clyde are wonderful hosts, Katie. The evening started off with an exciting “pop” of Clyde’s awesome bubbly. The wine flowed and the meat (chicken, pork roast and beef) that the smokemaster prepared was delectable. It was cool to taste the 2006/2005 Norton difference – and we learned alot with your “Glass Class.”
    We had a great time – thank you!!!
