My late DH and I used to entertain friends quite often, and now that it's just me, I go on having friends and neighbours for meals.
Often they bring a bottle of wine, which is kind. But it goes into the cellar; I wouldn't open a whole bottle just for myself, because I only drink one glass in an evening and it would be sour by day 4 or 5. I suppose I could cook with it, but it seems a waste.
Their bottle would be drunk with other friends eventually.
But I would rather like to be able to have a decent glass of wine for a couple of evenings on my own. A half-bottle would be ideal.
Has anyone got any suggestions as to how to drop a hint to kind friends and neighbours?
