May the 4th be with you

It's been awhile since I've been able post. This is not a recipe or restaurant post. Simply want to wish you all a Happy Independence Day. Be safe this weekend with your family & friends where ever you are.

I'm heading to a friend's for a BBQ. And I'm bringing this little nerdy crowd pleaser...

Happy Valentine's Day & Snow Day

It has been an adventure in snow here in the DC area. The original plan was to head down to Loundoun Grown; which is a local county food, wine, & spirits festival. However, since some of the roads had about 18" of snow to traverse through, plans to attend have been changed.

So my Valentine & I went grocery shopping and so I decided to put together an AWESOME charcuterie platter: Primus 2010 "The Blend" wine, dark chocolate covered cherries/coconut/banana chips/cranberries/blueberries, coco dusted almonds, salt n pepper pistachios, various grapes, blackberries, blueberry goat cheese, cranberry goat cheese, french brie, prosciutto, peppered salami, fresh baguette, brown buttered 3 cheese ravioli, marinate mozzarella balls, & various water crackers.

A non-foodie post

I have been overly stressed for about six months now and it all came to a head in the last couple of months. You can see by my lack of posting that I have also not been out loving food or life. I ended up losing about 20lbs from stress in a little over a month. But I am happy to report that after offloading about 200lbs of life sucking stress (read ex) and grieving the loss of 2 family members who passed 2 days apart, that I have gained at least 10lbs back. I am getting back to loving life, to include good food and drinks. I look forward to the road ahead of breaking bread and sharing some wine.
