A Berrcuterie Board to Celebrate Flag Day and the Weekly Menu

Tomorrow is Flag Day. That is a great occasion to serve up this Red, White, and Blue Berrcuterie Tray. Of course, you can serve this all summer long, but it is especially fun on Memorial Day, Flag Day, and Independence Day.

Altos de la Guardia Rioja paired with Tacos Ticos #WinePW

This full-bodied red wine from Spain is made with Tempranillo grapes providing spicy notes combined with summer fruit.  It has a high alcohol content (14.5%) and was strong enough to stand up to deep-fried taco ticos with which I served it.
