Today’s Food and Wine Review

Even though September is almost here, we are still experiencing hot days and cool nights, the sun shines every day and no rain is on the horizon. Summers are truly paradise here in the Pacific Northwest. I planted a garden this year and am harvesting more zucchini, squash and cucumbers than I can keep up…

Today’s Food and Wine Review

After returning from a recent business trip, we’ve had a busy weekend. First it was a day of wine and chocolate tasting on Saturday on Bainbridge Island. We tasted our way through the island, seven wineries offering up some of their wines along with chocolatiers letting us sample some gourmet chocolates. We drove to the…

Last night we had a rare evening together so you know that means, yep I cook a real meal and there was wine with dinner. I sautéed pork chops and roasted broccoli for dinner and for the wine I opened a bottle of wine that was a gift from our friends. The wine, a Pinot…

I’m squeezing out every opportunity to grill outside before it gets too cold. Yes, I know you can grill outside year round, but when it gets too cold and rainy, it takes longer to warm up the grill and longer to cook the food on the grill. And since I am a rare steak girl,…

Today is the last day of our vacation. It’s back to getting up early and going to work all day. Last week we started off our vacation with a day of wine and whiskey tasting in Woodinville, Washington. I tried the whiskey varieties at the Woodinville Whiskey Company, and didn’t gag, which totally surprised me….

A three-day weekend means firing up the grill and opening up the wine bottles. For one of the meals, I grilled thick cut pork chops that turned out to be super moist and very tasty. For the wine I decided on a Sauvignon Blanc. I opened a bottle of Airfield Estates, Sauvignon Blanc vintage 2014,…

Another night home alone means another bottle of something light. This time it is a Washington State wine from Walla Walla, B. Lovely Late Harvest Riesling, 2014. This is definitely not a wine that Mitch would drink. But if you’re looking for a pretty sweet wine, this is a good choice. The wine has an…

Today’s Wine Review

Saturday afternoon after spreading stinky compost on some of my newest plant gifts from my neighbor and a shower, I decided I deserved a glass or two of wine. Today’s wine is Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling, a Columbia Valley, Washington white wine. It says it’s a medium sweet wine on the back label and I…

Today’s Wine Review

It’s the holiday weekend and since Mitch has to work I’ve been reduced to drinking alone. And not one to let a weekend go by without wine, I bought a light white wine that I know Mitch wouldn’t like, so I won’t have the guilt of not sharing a good bottle of wine with him….

Tonight I called my best friend to catch up since she lives six states away, we can’t get together easily. So a phone call has to suffice most of the time. And of course we were both drinking wine, hers a red and mine was a white. I opened a bottle of Radius Riesling, a…

Today’s Wine Review

We had good friends over for dinner last night. We had talked about all the recipes I save on Facebook and Pinterest, making all of my Facebook “friends” complain about putting them in a diabetic coma all of the time, so we decided that we would get together at least once a month and some…

Today’s Wine Review

A rare weekend off for Mitch means I cook something nicer and we open a bottle of wine. For me the weekends are special, for one I am off and I try to cram as much in as I can in two days and if Mitch is off, it usually means I get to plan…
