Some of our best friends from New York came to visit last week and we had a great time showing them our next of the woods. After a trip down the road to Fogarty Winery, we came back to the house and enjoyed some wine on the deck at sunset. We started with a bottle of Rose Brut, then moved on to Fogarty Pinot Noir. It was a bit chilly, so we got the outdoor fire going. Cocktail hour snacks included: Délice de Bourgogne and manchego cheese with apples, dried figs, artichoke spinach dip, turkey kielbasa, spicy paprika pepitas, pesto caper bites, and a bit of left over marguerita pizza from flour + water in San Francisco from the night before.

it’s frigid outside.

I am not complaining.. I just need to layer more, right? My dad and I were discussing this AM how little rain we have had this winter in Seattle, yet how cold it has been. If you are a pendler (german word for: commuter) like me then this might be the perfect drink to warm your frozen fingers with at the end of the day.

has anyone else noticed the crazy amount of brilliant food blogs there are out there these days? managed to stumble upon Erin Gleeson’s and I can’t wait to try out so many of the recipes.
