One of the loveliest parts of staying in a house with a bunch of friends is making meals and eating together. We all took turns making breakfast and dinner, and most importantly of all, cocktail hour. Being in Vermont, those of us that hosted cocktail hours over the course of the weekend took our responsibilities as providers of cheese very seriously. We scoured specialty shops, farm stands, and farmers markets, looking for the finest cheeses Vermont had to offer.
The Mister and I hosted on the final evening of our stay, and the weather was fine enough that we could all sit outside. He made lemon smashes (a lemon, mint and bourbon cocktail) on demand, and we all sat around enjoying the evening light, swatting at black flies, and hoping the night and the cheese would never end.
*Note: I put this post together for Angie’s Fiesta Friday, which is always a nice way to end the week! Cheese is my favorite part of any party.
