What did we do for fun?

Good Morning Darlings!

Just when you thought it was time to let your guard down…here’s a list of manners for giving/attending a bbq. Anything here that we’ve forgotten?

Celebrity chef Ted Reader comes to us with these gems of advice.

Good Morning, Darlings!

Isn’t it great to have an extra day off? Since Eric had Monday off we were able to squeeze in some extra fun this weekend. Friday night found us at Farm Burger in Decatur for the yummiest burgers this side of your home grill (actually, better than home burgers). Saturday we decided to go back to Dahlonega and visit our friends Doug and Sharon Paul at Three Sisters Vineyard & Winery for a special treat. We started with the wine pairings – my favorite was their Blood Mountain Red paired with Cheetos! Cheetos! Don’t you love Cheetos? Me, too.

Have No Idea How Doug & Sharon Thought This Up, But It's Great!

Not Black Tie, Not BBQ, But Tons of Fun

Good Morning, Darlings!

Last night we were tickled to be invited to the home of Spencer & Allison, co-owners of Black Tie Barbecue for an intimate get together with their fabulous, and recently engaged, friends, Joe and Lauren. You’d think Spencer and Allison would be exhausted from catering constantly, but no, they were up for a tasting party. A bruschetta tasting party. I love being a recipe guinea pig.

Good Morning, Darlings!

The best thing about having a blog is the opportunity to toast those you love best.  So if you will indulge me this lovely Monday morning, I would like to tell you about the party we attended Saturday night.

Adorable friend Valerie graduated from Georgia State and we all gathered to celebrate her accomplishment. Our sweet hostess Denise even made a sign:

Congratulations, Valerie!
