Hey everyone! So it looks like we’re officially into fall now. For the first time in a long time I don’t have a What I Ate Wednesday post for you today. We hosted a dinner party Monday night which completely messed up my ability to realize what day it is and as a result, I forgot to take photos of my eats. If I can remember today I’ll try to take photos on ACTUAL Wednesday and then I’ll post it on Thursday for you.
We had a great weekend visiting some friends in Newport RI. Saturday was a beautiful day, we went to a vineyard and listened to jazz music while tasting some wine and having a nice little picnic.
Not a bad way to spend the day! I have to say, for a New England vineyard, their wines were pretty impressive. We can’t seem to do reds very well around here but the whites? Whites we can do! We bought a few refreshing whites to add to our collection 🙂
The weather has been absolutely gorgeous lately. Its definitely been a little cooler than normal but the sun has been shining and the sky is blue as can be. Gotta love fall in New England! Can’t wait for our New Hampshire trip to see the foliage and pick a crap ton of apples!
I don’t have any special recipes to post today but I figured I would share this easy dinner idea I cooked up a few days ago. I cut up a pork tenderloin into medallions, seasoned and grilled them. Then I simmered some blueberries with BBQ sauce and served the grilled medallions with the blueberry bbq. It was a super quick dinner and SO delicious! I served alongside grilled sweet potatoes and a spinach tomato salad.
WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:
We tailgated at a polo match this weekend in Newport. It was my first polo match and it was a lot of fun! We munched on baked brie, cheese, salami & crackers, fruit & veggies and other yummy eats. Hope we get to do this again soon, it was a great time!
