Some of the Black women who were KICKED OFF the Nappa Valley Wine Train.
So for the past few days in my peripheral vision I’ve been seeing this black ad online. I’m not really taking it in, as I try not to be too consumed by the beast of the media we’re constantly exposed to. Finally it gets me, it’s for Dunkin’ Donuts, but it’s not for your local shop… but the chain in Thailand. It’s polished and looks slick, but it’s the same ol’ ish…
Last week I attended one of the biggest wine tasting events in New Jersey, The Wine Library Super Wine Tasting held at The Manor. This has got to be one of the biggest wine tasting events in the country. I have written about the Wine Library in an earlier post, one of my favorite places to shop, hands down. Well, they know how to throw a wine tasting party! There were over 400 different wines, beers, champagnes and liquors available for attendees to try during my four and a half hours of uninterrupted tasting. Yes a number of guests came in limos to insure that they returned home safely. I had my trusted designated driver which allowed me to fully enjoy all of the spirits I could sample.
Here is my recipe for my Grilled Pineapple Salad.
Ok, I have a hidden passion for sweets and I love really good ice cream. Magnifco’s makes really good ice cream. They have an assortment of rotating flavors and a list of seasonal flavors as well. You can get fresh Fruit Sundaes, Ice Cream Sandwiches, Italian Ices, Gelati and sooooooooo much more. This is the place to go on a hot summer night. Check them out!

Today I visited A Seabra Foods, owned by a good friend of mine.
My friend Maruchy stopped by with some of her friends to share childhood memories of her mother cooking a very special Cuban dish for the the two of them – which she called Norma’s Surprise.
One Sunday afternoon Sista ToFunky and her company celebrated friendship, good drink and great food.
Here are a few pictures of the beautiful dishes I have made and meals that I have enjoyed. Cheers!
