Wooohooooo Guys.  It is done!  And it is gorgeous, if I do say so myself.

I need to stop right here and give a big shout out of gratitude to my husband who worked non stop for weeks to make this room everything I had hoped for and more.

Happy Father's Day and The Weekly Menu

Happy Father's Day to all of you out there that take on the important role of "Dad" each and every day.  You are the unsung heroes.  You are the men that embrace your role and take serious your responsibility of supporting, directing and forming these precious lives for whom you are responsible.  Many of you are not even the "biological" father but take pride in being "Daddy". Some of you are uncles and grandpas who step in to fill the void of a father who cannot or will not be in their child's life.  Some of you are women, trying to "do it all" because you have no other choice.

My Pops with Me and my sister, Dawn.

Alsace Rocks the Summer Grilling Scene #Winophiles

Welcome to the June 2018 Edition of the French Winophiles.  This month we are visiting (virtually) the Alsace region and the wines that it has to offer.  Our tour guide for this trip is Jeff of Food Wine Click.  You will learn so much about this area if you take a look at his information post.

I am sharing four different food and wine pairings with you today.  I am excited to tell you what I learned about these wines through the pairings.  Plus, I am sharing a great recipe for Mussels that you can prepare right on your outdoor grill.

Smoked Salmon Chowder #SoupSaturdaySwappers

Tender, flaky, smoked salmon in a lightly creamed broth flavored with onions, garlic and celery with just enough potato to make it the first course or light lunch.
