After spending 3 hours trying to plan out the first 2 days of school, making copies, moving baskets of freshly purchased school supplies around the classroom- I finally closed up the computer and headed out! I knew hubs was already home ready to kick off the weekend- with the help of the "not quite 100% adopted but becoming more and more of a permanent fixture everday" dog "Wiskie."
We opened and shared a delicious bottle of red wine- which will definitely become a staple here! It was a shiraz viognier blend. I love a bold shiraz- one of my favorite reds- especially in cooler months! In the warmer months a chilled glass of Viognier- and definite summer white wine- fits the bill perfectly! Friday's hubby/wife 'wine down' gave us a chance to enjoy the best of both worlds- while this bottle was 95% shiraz and 5% viognier it was 100% DELICIOUS!
We shared cheddar stuffed banana peppers (thank you neighbors) wrapped in bacon, with grilled hamburger sliders. We called it a night relatively early- after loading up the montain bikes and filling up the camelbacks for Saturday's morning date!
