Last week The Polar Bear and I traveled to Willamette Valley in Oregon to visit the wineries that are represented on our Bizzi’s wine list, and to try a few more wines that may be coming onto the list.  If you’re so inclined, we”ll be attaching a couple of pics from our trip.  Examples of our days in Willamette:  lovely Jenn, from Left Coast Cellars, one our very favorite wineries, gave us the cook’s tour of the place (and a taste of everything they had — from fresh grapes just squeezed to new vintages … and then fed us local cheeses with fresh bread.  It’s a tough life having to taste delicious wines all day, but I’m actually glad to be home.  If you want to see more pictures, just ask!  I’ll give you the whole travelogue (not to be confused with monologue).

This weekend, we’ll be serving Crispy Chicken Thighs with Red Wine Barbecue Sauce, Goat Cheese Grits, & Braised Collard Greens.  Wow, indeed.
Feet (and feed) on the ground….
