I think a nice bottle of wine ($25 gets a good one IMO) or nice chocolate from a boutique chocolate place would be great.
I'd go chocolates or your lemonade....all my grandpa's doctor friends (and rich friends in general lol) are massive wine snobs....I know they would prefer some nice chocolates over a cheap bottle of wine, so I would avoid that of I was in your position.
I'm back from the party. I made the cordial and bought chocolates from Haigh's too, and was happy with my choice (and my friend's husband was stoked too by the looks). I only stayed two hours, didn't want to leave DD too long as she was being babysat and didn't sleep for them. It was the type of party where you walk in there knowing nobody and I don't know about you, but at first I just want to turn around and run out the front door in that situation! But I sucked it up and started talking to some people and had a few interesting conversations. My friend's husband is a surgeon, so pretty much everyone there was either a surgeon, doctor, nurse or the like (even their spouses, they all must marry within the field), so it was pretty intimidating, but my friend's MIL was lovely (she's a nurse, lol) and because she'd had a few drinks she was sooo talkative and a bit of a character. It was good to get out of there though, kind of exhausting all that small talk when you don't know anyone there.
I made your cordial today. Super yummy! And it made heaps. Thanks again for the recipe.
Glad it went ok.
Is that cook book the cooks companion, the one that's the size of a besser brick? That is the Holy grail of cook books for me, but i can never afford it.
