Finger Lakes Wine Tour

Last weekend I joined 23 friends and (future) family members on a wine tour around New York’s Finger Lakes. Jared’s dad hired a small bus and plotted our route.  Four wineries in eight hours! Our 1st stop was Three Brothers Winery which contains 3 wineries and a brewery: Stony Lonesome, Passion Feet, Bagg Dare, and [...]

Vino Voyage

Last night Jared and I took a Spirit of Boston for Gordon’s Fine Wines and Liquors VinoVoyage. It was still warm out when we left for VinoVoyage, but I knew it would be cool and windy out on the water.  Layers!  A short sleeve blouse covered by a long drapey sweater.  And comfortable shoes because [...]

Keuka Lake Wine Trail

I love wine tasting! This weekend we spent some time touring on the Keuka Lake Wine Trail. Keuka Lake in one of 11 Finger Lakes in western New York.  The Finger Lakes also include Canadaigua Lake, Seneca Lake, and Cayuga Lake.  Keuka Lake is in the shape of the letter Y.  There are 4 vineyards [...]

3-2-1

3 mile jog… 2 vineyards… 1 wedding… It’s been a great weekend at Keuka Lake.  And there’s still one night left to relax!

Wonderful World of Color

There was lots of color in my diet today.  Absolutely necessary after yesterday’s monochromatic menu. (My post title is also a nod to Walt Disney because as of today’s count, there are 76 days until my Disney vacation!  77 days until the Wine & Dine Half Marathon!) I made of oatmeal using the last of [...]

Boston Wine Exchange

On Thursday night, I attended Meghan and Michelle‘s wine tasting event at Boston Wine Exchange. Complete with cupcakes, Cabot cheese, wine, and bloggers, I think the event was a definite success! We sampled 8 wines, 4 whites and 4 reds.  I liked everything that I tried, but had some definite favorites that needed to come [...]

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

Today is pretty much a repeat of yesterday.  It’s still HOT out, I had more job training, I ate the same foods. Last night Miles was acting like the King of Pride Rock.  He was perched on the deck, keeping an eye on what was going on in the house and in the yard.  He [...]

Marzipan Baking Experiment

After the HW event at BWX on Tuesday night, Jared and I stomped over to Matt and Natalie’s house.  Our visit was a little unexpected, but Matt and Nat were gracious hosts and welcomed us with WINE and food. Homemade pizza with ricotta cheese and eggplant. Natalie attempted to bake cookies with marzipan. We should’ve [...]

Boston Wine Exchange

Muddy boots!  Yesterday I did a bit of work outside in the garden. Even though there weren’t any plants to actually take care of!  My yard is still full of hay, mulch, sticks and rocks.  It will look pretty someday in the near future!  I had cereal for breakfast, but didn’t take a picture. I [...]

Mom, the Meatloaf!!!

I enjoyed a glass of San Pellegrino while I spent the afternoon/early evening studying nutrition. San Pellegrino is basically Italian lemonade. When my running partner got home from work, he declared it was too windy to run.  Do I smell a lousy excuse for skipping a workout?!?!  I sent him outside to bring the trash [...]
