Wine for your weekend – Katherine Goldschmidt Cabernet Sauvignon

Two years ago, “Josh” wines showed up at our local liquor store. With a husband named Josh, they quickly became a staple on our wine rack. I bought our first bottle or two because I thought it was cute. People gifted him bottles because they thought it was clever. And then the distribution of “Josh”Continue reading “Wine for your weekend – Katherine Goldschmidt Cabernet Sauvignon”

Wine for your weekend – Malbec edition

This wine for your weekend recommendation was originally going to be non-alcoholic alternatives for times you can’t indulge. Why? Because this Sunday is my marathon, and so I haven’t been drinking (with the exception of a glass of wine for girls’ night) as I taper for the race. Then, we were invited for a MemorialContinue reading “Wine for your weekend – Malbec edition”

Wine for your weekend – Mom’s white zinfandel edition

I have been very red wine heavy in the recent weeks, a likely product of the weather not really warming up and watching a lot of death and bloodshed on Game of Thrones. Is it necessary to drink red wine exclusively while watching unfolding carnage? No. But it feels somehow off to sit and relax with aContinue reading “Wine for your weekend – Mom’s white zinfandel edition”

Not everyone is going to be quite as excited about this first point as I am, but I also know I’m not the only one excited that finally, after two years of waiting, the final season of Game of Thrones starts this Sunday! Winter has come and gone and come again since we were lastContinue reading “Get ready for GOT, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”

It happened! Against all the terrible winter odds, the snow melted…on time even! This week the backhoe was delivered to our lot, and on Tuesday, amidst the threat of rain and not snow, they took the first few scoops of dirt off the top! In an ideal world with a perfect winter, we would haveContinue reading “Josh and Kate build a house – an update, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”

What the FODMAP?, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

Recently, I was browsing the grocery store picking up a few things for supper, when I came across a new item on the shelf “butter chicken curry simmer sauce.” Nobody loves a curry as much as my husband, and though I’ll gladly make one from scratch, every now and then it’s nice to have anContinue reading “What the FODMAP?, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”

A Broadway soundtrack for your everyday life, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

There are two schools of thought when running long distances. The first, is the purist mentality in which running occurs without distraction or disconnect. Runners run and train without headphones. No listening to music. No tuning out with an audiobook or podcast. They just run, with the sounds of traffic, birds, wind in the trees,Continue reading “A Broadway soundtrack for your everyday life, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”
