Then it was off to Harbinger Winery for a cheese paired wine tasting. I forgot to write down all the cheeses so I'm going to rely on Jean to fill in the blanks. Jean also brought a wonderful white bean and goat cheese dip and shrimp confit in duck fat.

Am I the only one that salivates when viewing this?

Then it was time to head home and make pizza's! You must first begin with a festival of cheeses.

Now Derek and I were staying out in the beautiful trailer which was a lot of fun!! Got a nice taste of what a good time can be had...then I got the munchies. What to do, I didn't want to go back in the house so started to look around and looked up and thought huh...how about goose?

Lol I took a flat Stanley for Laura's class to Italy wouldn't that be a fun project for here! Start a chain that sends him to all who want to play and see how many food adventures he has. We could include a journal with him for folks to make notes and blog his entire adventure.
