Links for your Monday morning

Walking Dead - ooooh, we're just getting darker and darker with every episode. Recap is up here, and if you follow my Tumblr (or HDJM's tumblr) you'll know when the recaps are up for TWD, SPN, and more!

Speaking of, the SPN recap and more are up at HDJM. ;D

Every time you share, reblog, or like a link there, an angel gets its wings. BBQ and spicy wings! Boneless, even! Mmm, it's almost lunch time and I'm hungry.

I was introduced to a new wine this weekend and it was GLORIOUS.

Bold & spicy. I let it sit opened for an hour before drinking, and it was perfect with the rich beef stew I'd made for our dinner.

There's a fantastic winery that opened in our town square and every red wine was in my wheelhouse. I got to talking to the owner and have a new BFF. Hahaha. He joined up with a butcher shop in town (they only buy organic, grass fed meat - process all the meat there on site, holy smokes, I was in HEAVEN) for something called a "Cab -n- Slab." It's a wine/steak of the month club where the wines are premium and the cuts of meat divine. Yeah, I'm signing up. (Last month was a bottle of Caymus and 2 20oz Porterhouse steaks. I MEAN. COME ON.)

He warned me that this particular wine I mentioned is selling like hotcakes, so buy now. I plan on going back this week and picking up maybe a half case, because it was THAT GOOD.

hey, gang! (I'm going back and replying to people I've missed over the week due to my life being crazy. Sorry!!)

I don't even drink wine or eat much red meat but that "Cab -n- Slab." club intrigues me! The mister would be grateful if I joined something similar here in town. We've got several new butchers specializing high quality locally raised meats *makes note to look into it*

Isn't that a great idea? I like to eat red meat on occasion - not every week, so once a month for a steak sounds perfect to me.

Beer-n-steer! :D

Oooh, Laborum! I've had their Syrah, but not the Cab -- I will have to look for that. *makes note*

That steak/wine combo sounds amazing. I *just* got a bottle of the Caymus 2011 and have stashed it in the root cellar to mellow for a while... which reminded me that I have a few other fun bottles down there that I need to bring up now that the weather's cool enough for stew, pot roast, etc. This weekend: an inexpensive but tasty Bonarda with Catalan-style beef stew with mushrooms, plus fingerling potatoes and roasted carrots from the garden. Om nom nom.

In conclusion, FOOD + WINE = YAY.

Oh my gosh, it is SCRUMPTIOUS.

Caymus is so delish - it seems like we have a similar palate. And ha, I made a French-style beef stew (Spanish is something I'll have to try next time!) to go with this bottle, even though it's an Argentinian wine. [insert obligatory Don't Cry For Me joke here]

I want to go to your Cab & Slab!

It doesn't hurt that the CUTEST GUY EVER works the counter at this butcher's shop, either. NOT IN THE LEAST.

Now you're just torturing me. EVIL.

I'm torturing myself, believe me! :D

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
