Meeker "Handprint" Merlot

Isn't this a fabulous looking bottle of wine?

I have posted previously about
I sometimes
choose wines because
of their catchy names

Well, I have another

I also sometimes choose wines
with cool designs on the bottle!

I didn't buy this one
(but I sure would have if I had seen it first)

It was a hostess gift from my friends,
Ross & Laurie

We have no idea how it tastes yet

We may never know
The bottle is too dang pretty to open

The Porch Restaurant - Dallas

If you haven't checked out
off Henderson in Dallas

You are missing out!

We (my friend Misty & I ) went for the
Three Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Tomato Soup
but then
the Crab Cake Salad looked good
so did the
Pesto Chicken Sandwich
and the catch of the day
Flounder topped with Jalapeno Corn Casserole
so many choices
and then
the yummy side dishes
sounded awesome
so ....
that's what we ordered...
all the side dishes

The waitress confirmed that we were
the first to ever do so
She made us sound very innovative and trendy
I believe she said
 something like this, "People
just do not know what they are missing
They are usually too full for side dishes"

Do not be fooled
This is no veggie plate from Blackeyed Pea

Check it out
(btw - my friends love it when I make them wait to eat so I can take pictures)

Jalapeno Corn Casserole -
we both agreed
the absolute FAVORITE

Roasted Garlic Bread

Smoked Ham Mac & Cheese Casserole

Parmesan Broccoli

Chopped Tomato Cucumber & Basil

Beets with Crispy Goat Cheese & Walnuts

Of course, since we had some healthy vegetables,
we saved room for dessert

S'more Redux
If you love chocolate, you will love this

Gooey Butter Cake
The BEST cake I have ever had
It is served warm and gooey
tastes like a party in my mouth!

WineShop At Home

I am very excited to announce
that I have signed up with
to become a wine consultant

I will have the opportunity
to combine my 2 top passions -
wine and parties!

I am asking for help from my fellow followers  -
I need a catchy wine name for my wine shop at home website
For example, Wine Princess, Wine Maven, etc. 
These are already taken, so I'm asking if you guys have any clever ideas.

Please comment to this post
by Noon on Friday, 3/4 
If I chose your name,
you'll receive  
a bottle of wine

Spicy Sausage Balls

  I love sausage balls.  I've been making them for years. I think it's been at least 15-20 years.  These are one of many...
