no pictures, please

I never post family pictures online. It's a bit of a privacy issue for me. However, if you'd like to see what my little family would look like as Simpsons characters, well, that I can do.

Here's a little "hook & needle" (possibly better known as b's mamacita) for you:

Here's Daddy-B:

And here is lil' b with our pooch (who actually bears a striking resemblance to Santa's Little Helper in real life):
Anyway, it's not a crafty post, but it IS a post. I'm trying to stay on top of this blog thing.

We're attending a wine tasting party this weekend. Our assignment is New World Cab Sav and Merlot. Any suggestions for a couple not-too-pricey bottles (and a matching dish to pass)?

Hey, it's Jerri. I had bookmarked you a while back when you posted this. I lvoe reading blogs - any kind of blogs. I missed you on the other place, so I would check on you here from time to time. I hope that you don't mind. It's not the same without you & Robin.

I've had an empty blog for quite some time, so you inspired me to create a post. I don't know enough about it yet to give you the link easily. I'm guessing that you can get to it by clicking on my name. Ok, this is long enough. :)

I wine tasting party, how fun!

I usually go for Michigan wine myself. We have some great bottles but I really havn't found a cab sav or melot from Michigan that I like. I do have a GREAT appetizer for you. I love a good excuse to make this and it goes great with wine and everyone is always asking, "What's in that and how can I get the recipe!?"

I just realized that it's already over so my two cents is a bit too late! Sorry :)

P.S. Thanks for the comment regarding Marley. I really appreciate it.

Jill- it isn't over! It's this coming weekend!
We also usually do Michigan wines, but like you, I can't think of a really remarkable Cab Sauv or Merlot... Warner's Cab Franc is good, I usually buy whites myself, but I digress.
I am hoping to avoid California wines, I know this group (and frankly, myself) shies away from the cliched Napa wines. Thank you for the recipe, I will have to check it out.
