We all love them. But they must not go unattended by the joys of food and wine.
BUT WHAT TO SERVE?
Sweet things, let Cerise help you!
You have only a few minutes to dress...or not...prepare the bedroom or balcony or any room you want to play in, spray the rooms with a delicate lavender and set out a refreshing bit of drink and food.
Cerise's answer: AFTERNOON DELIGHT #1
1. Buy a luscious Italian prosecco. At $12-$16 a bottle, this bubbly provides a light buzz--and men and women love the taste. Chill it to cool, not frigid. It's delicate, bella, like your affaire.
2. Have your deli slice thin-thin-thin slivers of Prosciutto. No more than 4 per person. Slices are large and the taste is like butter.
Cut a lemon and squeeze the juice over the slices. Let them sit for 5-10 minutes.
3. Buy 1/4 lb. of imported Italian Gorgonzola and serve at room temperature with a rosemary cracker.
When your Delight arrives, have him open the bottle and pour right away. Then offer him bits of the Gorgonzola from your fingertips, from which, of course, he must lick every morsel.
Have him roll up the prosciutto and feed to you from his fingertips. The lemon will dribble down his wrist.
The wine bubbles down to the last goblet.
And you both will bubble too. (copyright 2009, Cerise DeLand)
