Thank you Bennett Lane Winery!

Not only did we receive our wine shipment from Bennett Lane today but they included an extra bottle on them because of a shipping delay. Now that's a class act! We've visited them a couple times in the Napa Valley and now they will become a permanent staple. Thanks guys! Keep making those amazing wines!

Kids' Pizza Party

Pizza party

My niece's birthday is coming up and I heard there may be a pizza party in the works.  The thought inspired me to conceptualize what I might do if I were organizing the party (and had free time, cash to burn, etc.).  To wit, some ideas:

  • Buy a bunch of plain pies and encourage the kids to top them with pre-cut and beautifully arranged onions, green peppers, pepperoni, sliced olives, etc.
  • Decorate with traditional red and white checked table cloths, napkins, balloons, etc.
  • Stick candles in the pizza for the birthday boy or girl to blow out...hey, why not?
  • Serve cookies that look like little pizzas with a slice missing!
