Everyone loves good food and wine.  However not everyone agrees on what constitutes good food and wine.

I love white wine.  My husband prefers red.

I prefer to eat Vegan or Vegetarian when I have too, and my husband eats everything including meat dishes.

That’s why I always keep hot sauces in stock. – Mike
