Wine Bar

Last night the hubby and I got together w/some old friends and went to a local wine bar. We had fun and I learned that in the future it would be much cheaper for us if we just get together at one of our houses and everyone brings their fav bottle of wine, some crackers and cheese.

Me, I like light white wines, the man prefers shiraz and pizza.

Speaking of cheese and wine the delicious Warm the Oven cheese dip that everyone went crazy for last fall is back and is now part of the Tastefully Simple fall line. This cheese dip is geat w/wine!!

This morning Patrick had some rash on his arms and chest, and then w/in an hour he had hives on his face. We have no idea what the allergic reaction was from, we dropped everything and went to the dr, he doesn't seem to be too concerned just said to give Patrick Benadryl for the next 48 hours and keep an eye on him to make sure the hives don't come back/get worse.

Hopefully this is just one of those things that won't be a recurring allergy!!!

The whole hive scare and rushing around to the dr and then taking the kids to Wal-Mart to get the medicine in the high humidity, has left me just wanting to take a nice afternoon nap..ah wouldn't that be lovely????

A fondue recipe, make it for those fond of you!
