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. ☕️
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
Happy New Year! 🥂🎊🥳🎉
(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.
Wine tasting, antipasto platter lunch, and club pickup at Marchesi Vineyards!
Excellent half BLT, truffle fries, and margarita at Louie’s on the Ashland creek. And ice cream dessert.
