This winter has us like meeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhh. I’m not necessarily complaining, and I’m not trying to jinx us into 100 inches of snow, but we’re New Englanders. We need snow, and we need sweatpant-wearing snow days by the roaring fire. Part of why we live here is because we enjoy having four seasons, even if part of the joy is bitching endlessly about one or more of them! The lack of snow has me, at least, feeling very blah.
I’ve had to come to the sad reality that as a migraine sufferer, I have to limit the amount of Champagne I can have. One glass I am fine. Two glasses I am mostly fine. Three glasses, cue the migraine. It’s a very fine line for me and one that I’ve been forced to respect.
TJ and I are so desperate to renovate our 1970s kitchen and bathrooms, that sometimes we forget to appreciate how gorgeous the rest of our house is. I knew I wanted to highlight these charming and original pieces of our house for the holidays, so I did what any sane person would do, I called in Krissy Price from Boston Pollen to make me some swags!
I could wax on and on about the beauty of Castello Romitorio, and the belt-busting meal we had at their communal table this past June. I could talk about the gorgeous vineyards, their sumptuous wines, their kind employees. I could talk for hours and hours about our love of this vineyard.
I asked TJ to pick three perfect wines for Thanksgiving and fear flashed across his face – only three?! How could I ask him to choose JUST THREE? But he came through like a champ, and here are TJ’s Thanksgiving Wine Picks for 2015. We’re open 10 am to 10 pm on Wednesday, with a free Thanksgiving Wine tasting from 2-5. Stop by to grab these wines, or whatever else might intrigue you!

You guys, it’s TURKEY TIME!!!! This is by far my favorite holiday of the year, perhaps even eclipsing my birthday at this point, such is my love of a day that revolves solely around cooking, eating, and drinking.
Oh, holidays. I eagerly anticipate and equally dread your arrival every year. But then, before I know it, you’ve snuck in and made me feel all warm and cozy, and I give in to the festivities of the season whole heartedly.
I spent all of last week with tonsils the size of small planets and a never-ending fever, so I didn’t have time to blog our Sunday dinner from Columbus Day weekend. It was such a revelation of deliciousness, and proof to us both – once again – that there are always many different wine pairings to go with any meal. Both expected and unexpected!
With the breakneck speed of school year re-entry, combined with an uptick in after school sports that overlapped with near nightly events at UG, I think it’s safe to say that TJ and I rolled into this weekend utterly exhausted. My dinners for the past few weeks have consisted of pizza bagels, grilled cheese, and something resembling meatloaf, but not really. When I saw the weekend weather called for a cold, rainy snap I couldn’t wait to fire up the On Demand movie channel, open the chimney flue, and get lazy with my people.
