  • Happy hour at Fig and Olive with the gals from WOW Charities. My first time here, so naturally I ordered their signature cocktail “The Fig and Olive” made with organic cucumber vodka and blood orange juice. Tasted like an orange cream popsicle.  #figandolive #figandolivehouston #happyhour #happyhourinhouston #organicvodka #organiccucumbervodka #wowcharities
  • Who doesn’t love a hot pastrami sandwich? Especially, a hot pastrami melt from Specs, and paired with a delicious organic wine, like Domaine Bousquet Cabernet. Houston peeps who work and live downtown, midtown and in the museum district...just so you know, Specs makes the most incredible deli sandwiches. AND bonus, Specs carries the full spectrum of Domaine Bousquet organic wines. Organic grapes and organic goodness from Argentina. Oh, today is National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day! #nationalhotpastramiday #nationalhotpastramisandwichday #domainebousquet #cabernetsavignon #organicwines #organicgrapes #organicgoodness #specsdeli #specshouston #specshoustontx
  • Monday...Monday. Guess I’ll have a glass or two of a good Chardonnay! After this long day, opened up another Christmas gift from a close friend. What a lovely present, Magnolia Chardonnay by Kruntz Family Cellars from their Inspirational Vineyards located in the Russian River Valley. #chardonnay #chardonnayallday #sonomacounty #kruntzfamily #magnoliachardonnay #russianriver #russianrivervalley #russianrivervalleywines #sonomacountywines
  • The best thing about watching the football playoffs this afternoon was devouring this homemade shrimp ceviche. I can’t take credit for making, but it sure was fantastic! #shrimp #ceviche #shrimpceviche #shrimpceviche🍤
  • Good Morning and happy Saturday! Got milk? Appreciating my first love for this cool refreshing beverage...Turns out today is National Milk Day. So I can’t think of better way of honoring than pouring me a flight of milk in Chardonnay glasses. Have a great day! #nationalmilkday #gotmilk #gotmilk🍼 #milk #drinkmilk #drinkmoremilk
  • A very happy National Oysters Rockefeller Day! Here in Houston, at the Goode Company Seafood restaurants they make their traditional oysters Rockefeller with a touch of crab meat... they are simply sensational. AND, in a Texas style kind of way their happy hours start a bit early at 3 p.m. #nationaloystersrockefellerday #oystersrockefeller #gulfcoastseafood #happyhour #happyhourinhouston #houston #houstontx #happyfriday #tgif
  • Cooking with wine... is cooking with love ❤️, and not just any wine, but the last bottle of my seasonal stash of Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau Rosé. Check out my Rosé inspired Apricot Chicken! Super easy to make in less than 30 minutes, and the apricot sauce turned out amazingly delish. Happy National Apricot Day!! Message me for the quick recipe. Dedicated to the sweet man Georges Duboeuf 🙏 RIP. #cookingwithwine #cookingwithlove #nationalapricotday #cookingwithapricots #beaujolaisnouveau #beaujolaisnouveaurosé #thepinksociety #rosé
  • It is National Argyle Day, and the fashion world today is wearing their favorite diamond shaped design patterned socks and sweaters. Here in Houston a couple weeks before Christmas, I had the pleasure of participating in blind tasting events hosted by Top 15 Most Influential Wine Blogger in the USA; Mr. Jeff Kralik aka The Drunken Cyclist. In the course of two weekends we tasted a lot of domestic made sparkling wine and incredible Pinot Noirs. Argyle Winery sparkling wine was among some of our favorite tasting samples. So the glimpse of this diamond shaped pic is 2015 Argyle Vintage Brut-Retail $28. 70% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Meunier. #nationalargyleday #argyle #argylewinery #oregon #oregonwine #oregonwinecountry #dundeeoregon #pinotinthecityhouston #pinotinthecity #wvwines
