Grillin’ Chillin’ and Whatever

Posted on

Puttering. Tweeting. Drinking. Planting.

What a lovely spring day. Warm, not humid. Perfect gardening weather. And, grilling weather.

We started out today pulling up black fabric and getting ready to till the garden. I also did some planting of herbs.

Two kinds of sage in the herb garden. Then, I checked out the chives. They are getting ready to blossom.

After pulling up the fabric and cleaning out the garden, it was time to chill. I made a simple punch. Ginger ale. Berries from the freezer. A splash of orange liqueur and light rum. Peach nectar. Served with the Chesapeake cheddar.

A couple of the TLV farm ribeyes on the grill with a side of asparagus and zucchini. My pesto from the freezer. A Breaux cellar selection syrah.

Later, a winechat on twitter with the vawine crowd. Viognier. Mine a 2012 from Breaux. Big and beautiful.

I know why we eat at home often. The food, the wine, the view.

About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
