Grab the glasses honey, our wine is here from Uncorked Ventures!

Red or white?  I lean to the white wine side, and my husband leans to the red, white, or what ever pairs well with the menu. Autumn feels like the time to relax from the Summer, slow down, enjoy the weekends of warm days and cool nights, and sip away exploring wine.

Brothers in law, Mark Aselstine and Matt Krause founded Uncorked Ventures where they carefully select wine from California, Oregon, and Washington and make available to purchase from their wine club, gift baskets, and wine gifts. 

Their wine club offers three levels, Explorations, Special Selections, and Reserve Selections. Each shipment contains 2 to 3 bottles of wine. Plus as a wine club member there are other perks such as discounts or re-orders, newsletter, and special offers.

My wine club shipment contained two bottles of wine, a white-Yay for me, from BRAVIUM WINES, White Wedding. Located in San Francisco, on Treasure Island. A mix of Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc grapes that goes well with or without food. My choice is with cheese and table water crackers sitting around the fire pit with friends. 

The second bottle of wine is a red, EASTON WINES, H House Red. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes from the Sierra Foothills. We liked both wines for dinner time, or an after dinner glass of wine. I'm still going with the white though-I'll work on the red...

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews. My kitchen sink has never shined so much, the bathrooms are cleaner, and now Soft Scrub 4-in-1 Toilet Care is now here! It is new, it smells nice, and it is so easy to use. Just clip it on the side of the bowl, make sure it is in the flow of water when the toil

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara. Easy to understand directions are on the back of the box, and don't forget to cut out the Box Tops For Education Label before you toss the cardboard into your recycling bin.   How to make this warm hearty meal for your family: open a box of Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara Brown 1 pound ground beef in a skillet. I used organic ground beef. In that same skillet, add and stir in: 1 cup o

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
