Wine and Dine




My cousin Emma had this wine during our family beach house and I loved it. Rose's are quickly are becoming my favorite wine to drink and this Rose was delicious. The wine is from a winery in Charlottesville, VA called Pippin Hill Farm. It looks like a gorgeous place to visit and is a host to a lot of weddings. Unfortunately Pippin Hill Farm wines are only sold to certain states and SC isn't one of them. Check it out here to see if they will ship to your state. 




So this isn't exactly wine, but it is served in a wine glass so it kinda sorta works right? Stella Artois is one of my favorite beers to order out and when I saw they had Cidre I had to try it. It isn't like normal ciders that have a lot of artificial apple flavor. It's very smooth just like Stella but has a hint of apple and is kind of bubbly too. If you're a fellow Stella fan, definitely give it a try.




This is a dip Theo and I have to buy whenever we see it for sale. It isn't always easy to find so it makes it even special when we do find it. It's a spicy yet sweet pretzel dip. We usually use Pretzel Thins to dip in it but honestly it's so good I could probably eat it all out of the jar. Being a mustard base it's much healthier than creamy dips and if you use pretzels you've got a pretty low fat snack. 




I found these at TJ Maxx and I know what you're thinking, who buys food from TJ Maxx? I love lentils and am always looking for alternatives to potato chips so I paid the whopping $2.99 for this bag and figured what have I got to lose. They don't have a ton of flavor but they're perfect to eat with hummus. I love that they are non GMO and made with pretty much only lentils and potato starch. I'm trying to cut back on processed foods and these are a great switch from chips and pita chips.

  8. Haha I've always wondered about the food from TJ Maxx -- I thought it might be all stale! Glad to hear it isn't because they do have some interesting flavors of chips/crackers!
