It was another enjoyable Friday evening with friends. We met Bob and Nancy at the Vineyard for wine and small eats. Jackie and Rock had intended to join us however, emergency situation: their basement was deep in 9″ of water. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to leave that mess. It happens a lot around here between burst pipes, back flow when snow melts and the ground just can’t absorb all the moisture, we all deal with it at some point.
The four of us did enjoy our evening. Here is the break down:
My first glass of wine was Gnarly Head Zinfandel. Oh so smooth, velvety and fruity. Ted had Greg Norman Cabernet.
Since it was Friday, a 2nd glass of vino was in order. But the selection was so vast, I couldn’t stay with the same, so Ted and I both had the Hess Monterrey Chardonnay.
Now for eats. It was basically a pizzeria menu. But they were offering 2 for one apps. as well as 2 for one pizzas.
I ordered a small salad (which could feed the table when it showed up), and a shrimp roll with hot sauce. That was a bit disappointing because under the shredded lettuce was mayonnaise (GAG!!) and the shrimp was battered and fried (eewwww!). Dissection was in order. I unbreaded the shrimp and ate a few bites of the unadulterated bread.
The pizza was good, after I added hot sauce to it. We had a mushroom and pepper pizza and Bob and Nancy ordered a sausage pizza.
Following the full bellies, lots of chit chat and laughs, we went our separate ways. Ted and I exchanged the DVD for “Man on a Wire”. I ended up sleeping through the entire thing. Oh well.
Now….HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
What are your plans?
Ted and I are having a Valentine lunch. I’ll tell you later, but here’s a hint: our meal is what I saw on FoodNetwork during “How to Boil Water”. So I gotta get with it and go shopping.
Wait! I have one more thing to share. Look what came in the mail yesterday:
