Today’s Food and Wine Review

My apologies, I haven’t written about any wines or dishes I’ve made. It’s not that I haven’t been drinking or eating, I’ve just not been writing it down. Because our work schedules have been polar opposites, Mitch working nights and me working days, I’ve fallen in a sort of rut, making dishes that are quick…

Today’s Food and Wine Review

Spring has sprung and not a day too soon. The winter here has been sucky to say the least. We had the coldest driest January on record, then the wettest February and March on record. I am so ready for warmer and drier weather. In honor of spring, I fired up the grill and grilled…

Since most of my wine tasting reviews center around food pairings too, I’ve decided to expand my reviews to include more food reviews. Tonight, I made a special meal, our anniversary dinner. For some, this means dinner out at a nice restaurant, for me making something special and a really nice bottle of wine is…

Christmas is almost here and the weather across the country is frightful. I think most of the country is in the deep freeze, even here where the temperatures don’t usually dip down in the teens. Surprise, I woke up to sixteen degrees and couldn’t get enough clothes on to keep out the chill. So, in…

Today’s Wine Review

I am always on the hunt for new and tasty wines. In the last few years I’ve tried more blends and which has resulted in more new interesting wines. My latest find is a very nice red blend from California. I must admit I bought the wine because of the label. In honor of the…

Fall has come to the northwest with temperatures in the fifties along with clouds and rain. I had set out a steak to grill hoping for better weather, oh well. For the wine I opened a bottle of Apothic Inferno, a limited release of wine aged 60 days in whiskey barrels. The wine, a California…

While in Kansas City on a recent business trip I had an opportunity to go to dinner with one of my sons along with his wife and children. We went to dinner at a local restaurant that if you live anywhere in the two state region, you’ve either eaten there or have at least heard…

Summer is here and sweltering heat is encompassing most of the country. Not here though, the summer is mild and pleasant with highs in the low seventies. Perfect weather for dinner on the patio. I wish we had a patio table so we could have dinner on the patio, but for now I only get…

The heat is on and it’s only the first of June. It’s the Pacific Northwest for crying out loud, everyone told me it rains all the time, it’s cold and cloudy, everyone is depressed because of the rain. Well right now I’m depressed because of the heat and no rain. We haven’t had any good…

Today’s Wine Review

I can’t believe it, I move to the Pacific Northwest where it is widely believed that it rains all the time and the temperatures stay in the mid-sixties and last summer we had a drought that lasted for months and temperatures in the eighties with a few nineties thrown in for good measure. Now spring…

Today’s Wine Review

Last night we had an opportunity to drink wine together, something we don’t get to do every night anymore because of Mitch’s schedule.  Oh don’t worry it hasn’t slowed down my wine drinking, I still drink every day.  We just don’t get to drink together as much as before.    For dinner it was a…

Today’s Wine Review

In keeping with my New Year’s resolution (the only one I can keep) I opened another bottle of wine. I am so proud of myself, I finally found the perfect resolution, and one that I can make year after year and succeed. Drink more wine. So simple, I don’t know why I didn’t think of…
