It had been more than 10 years since I'd seen my friends Ileen and Jerry. They'd moved to Denver many moons ago, but this week they were in town for a family wedding and last night was the night to get together. I'd said come over for wine and cheese. They said and go to dinner afterwards, so it was a deal.
Even though I had the wine and cheese in the house. I wanted something a little more fun and special to offer too. Whole Food fit the bill, so I was off on my bike shortly after 8am yesterday morning. Whole Food on Broad Street has done everything they can do to reach out to the community. I knew I could get a bunch of fancy cheese all for under $3. They have a very nice wine we all love called Three Wishes for $3, so it was on my list as well.
It was fun to wander through the cheeses and see what I could get. I confess, I had to sneak my favorite in and it was a bit more...but worth every penny above $3 and more. But when I went over to the wines, no Three Wishes. I asked someone for help and he said: "I know exactly which one you're talking about. It's good and reasonable so we run out of it quickly, but it's sometimes sprinkled throughout the store." We headed back to the cheeses, et voila! Both my helper and the cheese men smiled when I teased...here I am with my $3 bottle of wine, my less than $3 a piece set of very nice cheeses...and I'm all set.
It was a great evening with Jerry, Ileen and I...another three! With that pretty French Boule of bread, we could almost pretend that we were in Cadrieu. Well, almost!
