Q: I am having a wine and cheese party this Friday for my birthday and told guests to bring either their favorite wine or cheese. I know people will contribute, but now the question is how much should I buy myself? What do you think?

Editor: This is definitely one of those tricky dinner party situations. What if everyone brings wine? Or cheese?! Could you send out a quick email to see what people are planning on bringing and then make your shopping list from there? I also always tend to cover my bases and buy extra of everything "just in case." A gal can never have too much wine and cheese, right?
Readers, what do you think?
