Guys, (ladies) In April, I will have a guest from New Zealand here at the house.  He is taking training in Florida for a week and then flying to my son’s home in N.C. and then,. they all come here.  You may (or not) recall that two of the three sons flew to New Zealand last year during our summer..their winter and this is who they stayed with.

Give me some menu suggestions for a "State Dinner" I want to prepare.  What sounds good to you and what would you make?  How about dessert?  What would be good for that, as well.

What is the best brand of coffee to buy?  He likes espresso.  That’s out, so I would like to have on hand a great coffee to make in its stead.  Ideas?

Help me out and earn my unswerving gratitude.
