Das Awkscht Fescht is time travel without going 88!

Wine And Cheese on the Wine Trail

What is more perfect than a glass of wine? How about a glass of wine paired with perfect cheeses to go with it?

I find there are two ways to do wine and cheese pairings. First, you can look for similar flavors in both the wine and cheese for a safe pairing.

A Hungry Nine-Year-Old

“Mom, Dad, I’m hungry.” This phrase is common place in our household, especially with a son that seems to always have his head in the refrigerator. If your house is like ours, we are often in need of a cooking break (more my wife than me) so the next question is, where should we go?” Our son, Noah, is as picky as they come when it comes to eating out.

So, I interviewed one hungry nine-year-old and here are his recommendations. I had to take some liberties and make some modifications, but all-in-all, this is his list. I hope it helps those in need with finding some new, and perhaps some old, eating establishments that are definitely kid-friendly.

The wine selection was varietal

Earlier this month I was an exhibitor at a Lehigh Valley business to business trade expo. I have as much fun at these as I do the out of state shows, but for a different reason. At our local shows I get to catch up with people I know that I don’t often see otherwise. In a pre-show walk around I visited Jake from Bear Creek Mountain Resort at his booth. We were discussing all the fun events they had coming up but my ears perked up when he mentioned their Harvest Wine Festival.

I e-mailed the information to my sister, Kathy, and her husband, Don, asking if they would want to join Don and I. Luckily they were available.

Abigail Greenplate (age 10), guest blogger extraordinaire

This past Sunday (Super Bowl Sunday to be exact), I had the opportunity to pass the hours leading up to the big game by taking my sister-in-law’s family and ours to Bear Creek Mountain Resort & Conference Center for a fun morning of snow tubing. It’s not often I find myself on a mountain in frigid temperatures at 8:30 a.m., but the things you do for your child, niece and nephew.

Thanks to Megan, Bear Creek’s Marketing Coordinator, we were afforded the luxury of this great day. The conditions were great, the crowd was pleasant, and the laughs we shared made the day perfect. So perfect in fact, that my niece felt compelled to tell the tale of the day’s events in her own words. So without further ado, here is Abigail Greenplate (age 10), guest blogger extraordinaire . . .
