If you didn’t attend the Houston Press’s Menu of Menus Extravaganza Tuesday night, you missed out on a feast! The event was held at Silver Street Studios, which is a really cool industrial space near Washington. The building is very open with plenty of room for guests to stand and eat their samples and take pictures. It created a fun, laid back vibe perfect for wandering, sampling, and spending time with friends.
If you’ve been reading the blog for long, you may have noticed that I’m a big fan of the Bluebonnet Wine Trail. If you’re just tuning in, the Bluebonnet Wine Trail is a group of 7 wineries along 45 and 290 that host events throughout the year. At each event the wineries offer two wine samples and a food pairing based on the trail theme. In February, they host the first event of the year, which is the Wine and Chocolate Trail. Yum, right? I did the trail last weekend with the boyfriend and now I’m sharing all of the delicious wines and pairings we tried. The trail is this weekend, too, so go check it out!

Thanksgiving is all about the pie, am I right? Okay, there’s dinner, too; but really the turkey, ham, stuffing, sweet potatoes, and rolls are really just a means to a sweet and satisfying end: pie. If your family is anything like mine, everyone has a favorite pie that absolutely must be on the table at Thanksgiving. But when you’re busy making all those pies (or thawing them, picking them up from the bakery, or whatever else you need to do it to get them on your table and in your stomach), it’s hard to come up with just the right way to pair them.
