Ask Kim I love having people over, but I tend to get flustered with fiddly finger food. Any tips on how I can make these occasions less stressful? Choose foods that can be made ahead. Many party treats such as cupcakes and biscuits can be stored in airtight containers be- fore the event. Dips can be made and refrigerated the day before and sauces and quiches can be made and frozen until needed. Use a variety of hot and cold dishes. It not only gives guests more food options, but will ensure you don't spend most of your evening in the kitchen. Break the menu down into manageable sec- tions so you have more time to mingle with guests. Share the load. Guests are often happy to bring along one of their specialty dishes - they get some cooking credit and you save time and a few dollars. Kim Coverdale is food editor at Super Food Ideas.

WINE Peter Logan did something unusual with his Logan Wines Weemala Pinot Gris 2008 -- he picked part of the fruit in its early stage of ripeness, and the other when the fruit was riper. The result is an extraordinarily enjoy- able wine. It's good buying at $17 and it is a nice partner on the table for seafoods or creamy pastas. Specials ALDI Avocados, 99c each. Lettuce, $1.49 each.
