The Micro.blog photo challenge word for day 24 is “frosty” (suggested by @canion). It isn’t frosty weather here at present, so searching my photo archive revealed this frosty beverage with a foldable straw from our trip to Mexico last year (remember travel?). 📷 #mbaug
The Micro.blog photo challenge word for day 13 is “filter” (suggested by Spratte). While we have various filters around the homestead, the first ones that came to mind are AeroPress coffee filters. 📷 #mbaug
I’ve enjoyed the Vulcan Hello podcast from Scott McNulty and Jason Snell about Star Trek Discovery and Picard, so naturally I ordered the themed tea sampler from their amazingly appropriate sponsor New Mexico Tea Company as a gift for Jenn. 🖖☕️
I’ve been trying the inverted AeroPress method over the last few days. I think I might prefer it, if only because it builds in steeping time while preparing the filter, plus easier to get to the filters without the plunger in the rack. ☕️
I recently switched to making coffee via AeroPress instead of Keurig K-Cups. It’s a bit more work, but not too bad.
On Saturday during our Hood River mini vacation, Jenn and I did some tastings at a couple of wineries. We were planning to visit more, but felt we had enough after two. We went to Syncline Winery and COR Cellars.
The main reason for our trip to Hood River was to attend the winemaker dinner at our favorite winery, Marchesi Vineyards, along with friends. Some very tasty food and wine, accompanied by words from the winemaker, and Italian arias. An excellent evening.
Fun fact: for the first 40 years of my life I was a teetotaler, but I eventually changed my policy, and 10 years ago today I had my first alcohol ever: half a glass of this NZ wine. #ThrowbackThursday
(Since this is the first non-themed day on my blogs since Thanksgiving, here goes:) our Thanksgiving feast, with fancier tableware than usual, and plenty of tasty food. We’ll be eating the leftovers for a while yet.
