Being an Irish and Italian family, it’s a big tradition for us to get together and enjoy dinner as a family. I remember these gatherings as a little girl and I couldn’t wait until I could host my very own family dinners. Now that I’m in control of dinner, I’ve realized how much fun it is to host dinner and let’s not forget, drinks. I headed to Lucky Supermarket to get my dinner and drink supplies and was thrilled that they are offering a mix and match wine special to buy 4 wines or spirits and save 10%!

I loved how easy it was to find the details on the savings. There were signs everywhere reminding me that I could mix and match just about ANY wines and spirits to take advantage of the discount. Besides the signs, they offer you a nifty little carrying case perfect for 4 wines/spirits that also showcase their special. Then, the selection. WOW. Blown away by how many choices of wines I had. Even the sale items were included in this extra savings.

It’s very traditional for our family to start our evening first with a few appetizers. Generally a cheese tray, crackers, maybe some dried fruits and nuts. We always start the evening celebrating with a bottle of champagne. Any time our family is together it’s a celebration so we choose the bubbly. The mix and match wine special at Lucky Supermarket included champagne and I was thrilled to see that. I chose an absolute family favorite and got Ballatore. It’s a very sweet champagne but mild and perfect to accompany appetizers.

I knew I was making Beef Stew for dinner so I had to pick out a few choice Red wines that would be mild and make a great accompaniment to the stew. I chose Bogle Petite Syrah which has a mild taste and wouldn’t overpower the flavor of the stew. This is a great lead wine coming from the sweet champagne. Then I chose one of my Grandfather’s favorites: Robert Mondavi Central Coast Private Selection Merlot. This wine has a bit more bite than the Bogle but is a perfect red wine to go with beef dinner. I also chose a mild white Sauvignon Blanc, Oyster Bay. This is a perfect choice for those who don’t enjoy red wines but still want a crisp white wine to go with dinner.

Now that I had chosen the perfect drinks for the evening, I moved on to dinner. I chose a Top Round Steak for the stew. I also made life easy on myself and purchased some pre-cut veggies and a few packets of my favorite Beef Stew seasoning. Dinner doesn’t have to be hard, the point was to have a lovely evening with family and enjoy a tasty meal with fabulous company!
