Double Celery Soup

John faced down the celery root in the frig yesterday, coming up with a delectable cream of celery and celeriac soup based on turkey stock. Feeling full of the holiday bonhomie common to the chronically well-fed, he invited the neighbors in and a couple of other good friends, so I came home to a table being set for five, the oven full of turkey pepper cranberry Provolone sandwiches, a big tossed salad and a friendly William Hill Estate Chardonnay, partnered with a Domaine Filliatreau Chateau Fouquet Saumur, and somehow dessert became a Roederer Estate 25th Anniversary Anderson Valley Brut, not sure how that happened, guess we were out of chocolate. (Charlotte, you left too early!) Delicious all the way around.
