Grillin’

So, I was riding my bike yesterday evening.

Yes, I ride a bike. But no, I do not wear the spandex, or the bright colors, or the clicky shoes. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! But that’s not how I ride. I ride like a 5-year old. I’m far more likely to put baseball cards in my spokes than I am to attach a mirror to a logo’d helmet. Wooden clothespins and baseball cards. That’s how I rock.

The point is, I was riding my bike yesterday evening — a route and time that are not uncommon for me — and it began getting dark before I got home! And, it was getting cold!

What gives?

I mean, yesterday afternoon, we were grillin’!

Grilled tomatoes? Fresh mozzarella? Grilled Portobello? Grilled polenta? Don’t tell ME summer is over!!!

For the food & wine set amongst ye, the lovely dishes above were paired with the following wines:

2010 Ridge Vineyards Estate Chardonnay
(current release)

2009 Ridge Vineyards Monte Bello
(new release, available starting next weekend!)

2010 Ridge Vineyards Ponzo Zinfandel
(new release, available starting next weekend!)

2010 Ridge Vineyards Lytton Springs
(new release, available starting next weekend!)

Regarding that “available starting next weekend” clause above, by the way, there are still a few — albeit a VERY few — tickets left for our big Fall Release/50-Year Anniversary events the next two weekends, so if you’ve not signed up yet to attend, you might want to click below:
